A Thought on Alderaan

I want to take a moment and share a couple thoughts I’ve been having about the fateful planet of Alderaan. When we are first introduced to Alderaan (in Episode IV: A New Hope) it is the home world of the one and only Princess Leia. Which in and of itself is enough of a reasonContinue reading “A Thought on Alderaan”

Nerd in the City Book Club is on Goodreads

Before Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out in theaters, I attempted to make my way through the old canon of Expanded Universe materials. But since I only started in January of last year, I didn’t get very far. There is just so much to get through and I am a slow reader. I likeContinue reading “Nerd in the City Book Club is on Goodreads”

NITC Book Club: Star Wars Edition

This week I’m reading the first book in The Jedi Academy Trilogy by Kevin J. Anderson, Jedi Search. Don’t forget (as if you could) none of these are official canon anymore. So the events in these books are mere Legends. Simply good stories that may or may not have happened. I like to think ofContinue reading “NITC Book Club: Star Wars Edition”

NITC Book Club: Star Wars Edition

I am embarking on a rather large undertaking. For those super fans out there, you know what I mean when I say Expanded Universe.

Meaning, they no longer exist in theContinue reading “NITC Book Club: Star Wars Edition”
