Unless they're in like eternal torment for their wrongful ways or something. Hmm...there were definitely Sith Force ghosts, and I don't find that at all unbelievable. But you do make a good point about it defeating the purpose of 'becoming one with the Force.' Such as Anakin...that whole scene at the end was to show us that he had been redeemed. So yeah, like I said, perhaps it's like a living death, where they must regret their evil ways forever and always. *shrugs*

Too bad they can't do a Dante's Inferno of Star Wars. I'd still like to see that. Then they could bring back all the characters we loved but are now dead. A glimpse of the Star Wars afterlife...and it would have to include Thrawn.

Ooo, just thought of another good idea for the horror novel. Cannibal Chiss.

Any excuse to bring back Thrawn works for me. Wink

I liked this bit of Sue's blog:

November 1, 2009 - Paperback: Untitled horror novel by Joe Schreiber takes place between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back and should be read under the covers by flashlight.
Very Happy

Give credit to the Force cast for this, but they thought maybe its the Holiday Special in novel form. Lol, but i dont know, Holiday Special is more comedy to me.

Seriously, i am really looking forward to this book. A Star Wars horror novel is a great idea.

Believe it or not I like the idea of it being placed during the trilogy. No idea why.

Maybe *crosses fingers* we can expect a book on the Emperor. I've always wanted to get a glimpse inside his head. Can't get too much creepier than him, especially with all his Sith rituals. I mean the guy created monsters for a hobby!

I've been excited about Palpatine since the Plagueis novel announcement and my hopes were crushed when it was cancelled. A Horror novel would be fantastic. As to the Dante's Inferno idea, that was parodied in Traitor wasn't it?

Old story where guy goes down to Hades and sees the seven or so levels of Hell.

Dante's Inferno was written by Dante Alighieri between 1308 and his death in 1321. Actually named "Divine Comedy" and featured nine circles of Hell.

Wow, that sounds really interesting. Funny I've never heard of it before.
