Anybody else hear about this? It's a detailed account of the life of Obi-Wan. Thoughts, speculations, and just plain random guessing?

I heard it's going to be alot like the Vader one they did. I haven't read that one yet. There's also a lot Jude Watson books I'd like to read but the amount that's out there adds up to a hefty coin. Someday I suppose. As for the Obi Wan book, I'll probably pass on it. Eventually I'll pick it up with the others.

I like the character of Obi-Wan, but right now I'm kinda wondering about this Seth Era series that's in the rumors. That, and possibly a third Bane novel. Also a stand-alone story about one of the other Sith lords (Andeddu, Sidious, Plagueis, Nihilus).

Where'd you head that?

There was a forum set up about it (I can get you the link later, I found it by accident). It was basically from someone at Del Ray under an alias who set it up asking fans which of the following Sith lords they wanted a book about. There was a list, and Plagueis got the most votes, but it got cancelled because right now they want to leave a little mystic sense around Palpatine. They have said, however, that they are doing a different one. I think Wookiepedia had something about the Darth Andeddu novel or something like that. And Drew K. has stated that he has an outline for a 3rd Bane novel and I don't know if it got the green light or not, but the first two did really well and I think we're gonna see it happen.

When when we (EUCast) interviewed him he had not, but he really did want to do something. If this Obi-Wan book is done correctly, I think it can give us some really cool insight on Ben's feelings about the Original Trilogy and Prequel era events.

That's actually what I'm hoping for. I think after all this hardcore Caedus stuff it'll be nice to see a classic character done from a new perspective. That, and I think that right now they need to leave the 80 year-or-so peace period alone. Maybe a Sith era series or just like with the Obi-Wan novel they keep going with specific character books.

I wish the Obi-Wan book wasn't like the Vader one, since it is for younger readers. It sort of ruins the drama.

I'd love to see a well done Obi-wan novel, but right now I'm afraid it will be turn out to be crap, which aside from Traviss' Clone novels is about all we've had recently. Look no further than Luceno's Dark Lord for what Del Rey and Lucas might try to sell us.

While I don't think everything we've had lately has been bad, I too am afraid that it will turn out badly...which is a realy shame, if it does.

Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader novel was better novel than I had expected. So I have mild expectation that Windham can handle Obi-wan ok too.

Well I was expecting a total recap of everything we already knew with the Anakin/Darth Vader book, and thankfully I was very happy to see that there were actually a few new things. So it was decent, I suppose. Although I was very disappointed at the way they slapped like a $13 price on it just because they published it in hardback and with a slip cover. Some of us can't afford to keep dishing out $25 for every hardback they insist on making and then $12 for a scholastic?! Sheesh.

But about Obi-Wan...I'd really like to see a book just about his thoughts on everything. We really have no clue other than the end of RotS. So I think it could be very interesting if done correctly.

That would be wonderful, but you know what we're going to get instead is a novel focusing on some never before seen characters that come across Obi-Wan, who will give them some advice, or help them escape a predicament. Mostly it won't be about Obi-wan, but the book will be dressed up as an Obi-wan novel.

No thanks.

(I hope I'm wrong and they give the job to Mathew Stover.)

I wonder if he'll encounter Darth Maul version 2.0, the one that's half cyborg. That would be interesting.

I think you're referring to that cyborg Darth Maul that appeared in a Tales story, right?
I think that particular story wasn't canon, it was infinities, so I don't think it would be possible for that to happen. According to canon, Maul died at Naboo.
