A glimpet of news...

Random House just posted a cover and info on Walter Jon Williams' upcoming eBook "Ylesia":

The adventures of The New Jedi Order continue in YLESIA by Walter Jon Williams—the latest Star Wars eBook publication, from Del Rey Books. This original novella includes an exclusive excerpt from the eagerly anticipated STAR WARS: THE NEW JEDI ORDER: DESTINY'S WAY (on–sale 10/15/02) and an interview with the author.


RIPE FOR THE PLUCKING

That’s Jedi Knight Kyp Durron’s opinion about the planet Ylesia, home base of the so-called Peace Brigade, a group of traitors dedicated to hindering the war efforts of the New Republic and hastening the ultimate victory of the merciless Yuuzhan Vong. Kyp’s plan calls for a lightning-fast strike, backed with overwhelming force, to destroy the Brigade’s offensive capabilities and teach prospective traitors that betrayal carries a heavy price. But young Jacen Solo, still bearing the scars of his imprisonment by the Yuuzhan Vong, has a better idea: a daring raid into the heart of Ylesia’s capital, with the objective of capturing the Brigade’s top leaders—including the newly sworn-in President, Thrackan Sal-Solo, cousin to Jacen and his twin, Jaina.

But unknown to the Jedi and the New Republic forces, Supreme Overlord Shimrra of the Yuuzhan Vong has dispatched reinforcements to the Ylesia system. Instead of a swift surgical strike, Jaina, Jacen, Kyp, and their comrades are about to find themselves locked in a desperate battle for survival, with the odds stacked against them and time running out. . . .


Okay, this is neat. I was under the impression that nothing was happening until November. If this is accurate, then in a few days I'll have something else to read, and Destiny's Way comes out in mid-October instead of November. Yay. What with all the books and movies coming out in the fall-winter, it looks like there will be plenty to do.

In other news, I had a very eventful week, so maybe I'll get it down later on. Maybe not, depending on how much sleep I get tomorrow.

Aparrently [R] is on his fourth sick day, and the other [R] might not be in tonight. Wish I could say I was surprised.
