Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi – INTO THE VOID

July 14th, 2012 • Posted in Book News |

I’m absolutely thrilled to announce that I’ll be writing a brand new Star Wars novel for Del Rey/Star Wars Books.  The novel will be called Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi – INTO THE VOID, and is set in the Dawn of the Jedi era currently being explored by John Ostrander and Jan Duursema in their fantastic comic series.

I’m so excited about the novel, which I’ve already begun writing.  I can’t say much more about it yet, but I’ll release more news and details here as and when I can.  Watch this space!

I’m so proud to be creating a part of the wider Star Wars universe.  When that 7 year old first went to the cinema to watch a new science fiction movie thirty-five years ago, he’d never have imagined that one day he would be writing a novel set in that same far away, long ago galaxy.

It’s going to be fun!

    Terrific news, Tim. Congratulations. Why do I suspect that in this slice of the Star Wars universe, Jedi training will consist of long distance running, swilling of fine ales and curry consumption ?

    Holy smokes man, that’s one of my favourite SW eras. I can’t wait for this!

    Hey Tim,

    Would you be willing to do an email interview sometime on this project? I have a website called The Bearded Trio. Its all about Lucas, Spielberg and John Williams. I understand you may not be able to say too much at the moment at this early stage but when you can please let me know. By the way I’m from Cwmbran too.

    Rob

    Page, thanks, it’s going to be fun.

    And Rob … we’re almost neighbours! I’d love to do an interview, send it along. I might not be able to talk specifics, but that doesn’t mean we can’t just shoot the breeze.

    I cannot wait for your novel to be released. This era in the Star Wars mythos has me completely intrigued! Good luck, Tim.

    It’s great to see an excellent horror author working on Star Wars. I can’t wait to read your addition to the Dawn of the Jedi era; I can already feel the tingle running down my spine.

    Thanks, everyone.

    I’m a big fan of DOTJ, and have integrated its aspects into the Star Wars role play I am involved in. I’ll be very happy to buy this and read more about the Je’daii, as they possess so much more power than the modern Jedi, and Gray.

    Thanks Paul!
