COMING SOON: THE RETURN OF THAT 'STRANGE OLD HERMIT'

Sir Alec Guinness: the definitive Ben Kenobi.

With the news of its upcoming September release, I'm genuinely looking forward to reading John Jackson Miller's no doubt epic novel charting Obi-Wan Kenobi's self-exile as "Old Ben" out in the Dune Seas of the harsh Tatooine desert. James Luceno did a fine job charting his previous arrival on Tatooine, where EPISODE III ended, in Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader, illustrating his new status to the locals at Anchorhead and Mos Eisley as a crazy old man talking to himself (when he was actually conversing with Qui-Gon Jinn in the Force) all the while the Empire began hunting down other fugitive Jedi across the galaxy. Kudos also to Ryder Windham, who added some additional fine meat in his biography The Rise and Legend of Obi-Wan Kenobi, but this should prove the definitive tome of the popular Jedi Knight in the lead-up to EPISODE IV, of which I'm also rather envious- it's something deep down that I've always wanted to write myself...

A new life whilst protecting a new hope. STAR WARS: KENOBI, coming soon...
