Update: The title Star Wars: Shadow Games is the contest winner.
LucasBooks and Del Rey are asking the fans to choose a title for a Star Wars novel. The ‘Holostar’ novel that we have heard about is currently without a final name, and they are leaving it up to the fans to decide. We have also been given the first blurb for this thriller by Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff.
Stranded on Tatooine with a broken-down hyperdrive, Dash Rendar and crew—his Nautolan copilot, Eaden Vrill, and a droid named Leebo—have to find a way to raise credits. It comes in the lovely form of Javul Charn, a multi-talented human holostar being stalked by an over-zealous fan. She needs bodyguards to protect her during her tour along the Corellian Run; Dash needs credits. It’s a perfect match… until things begin to go wrong—seriously and dangerously wrong. By the time Dash realizes that the threat to Javul is not what it seems, he’s in up to his neck in a conspiracy that goes much deeper than anything he would have signed up for. Even with the help of his hated rival—Han Solo—will Dash be able to protect this spoiled entertainer, all the while being reminded that he couldn’t protect his own family?
The title choices are Star Wars: Shadow Games, Star Wars: Pursuit, and Star Wars: Shadow Play. You can vote here.
The novel is due out in Fall 2011.
