EUC is proud to announce an interview to ring in the new year with author Matthew Stover. His newest novel, Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor, hits stores in a few hours. For this interview we'll be talking questions for all of Matt's work, including those for Mindor that include spoilers, and it will be separated into two parts. Questions can be sent from today to next Sunday, January 4, at 12:00 PM EST, to mailbag@eucantina.net with the subject line "Question(s) for Matt" or put them in this thread.

UPDATE: Interview is now up. Feel free to discuss!

I'm gonna work in two questions...


1) With Traitor and Shatterpoint being 2 of my favorites and Shadows of Mindor being a story I've wanted to hear for awhile, what else do you have coming in the Star Wars universe, or outside of it.

2) I've talked with my friends a lot and we all see parallels with Dante's Inferno. Is it really meant to parallel it or is it just a coincidence?

Would you still like to do the last adventure of Luke,Han and Leia as an epic 500-page hardcover perhaps in 2013 at the end of Del Rey's new contract if they offer it to you?

Exclamation Very Happy

I'd love to hear about Mr. Stover's writing career in general--

-What was his first published novel? How did he feel about it?

-At what point did he realize that he could make writing his primary career?

-How did he become involved in the world of Star Wars fiction?

-How does the Star Wars writing process at Del Rey work? Are different writers given a subject or sketch to flesh out, or do they submit story ideas to the publishers?

-How much time is involved in writing a novel? How much time overall, and how many hrs per day are dedicated to writing?


OK, I'll stop now. Smile

1.) What was your inspiration to include all the stuff about holothrillers and movies into The Shadows of Mindor?

2.) In the novel when you were talking about Cronal and his studies of Sith Alchemy you mentioned Dathka Graush and a King of the Sith. When referring to the "King of the Sith", did you mean Dathka Graush or Adas who was previously the only Sith King, or at least stated as the 'first' Sith King?

Just wanted to let you all know these have been sent and I await a reply from Mr. Stover. I believe 18 questions we asked, not including the intro and good-bye. A pretty decent interview Very Happy
