The prequels are upon us! Over the next few months, Ian Doescher’s epic William Shakespeare’s Star Wars trilogy will become even more epic, as Phantom of Menace, The Clone Army Attacketh, and Tragedy of the Sith’s Revenge hit bookstores everywhere.
Today, we’re launching the pre-order campaign for Phantom of Menace, due out April 7th. You’ll have a chance to get a free signed bookplate from Ian Doescher, and the opportunity to win all kinds of awesome swag, including posters and custom written sonnets! Note, the campaign is open to US and Canada only.
December 29, 2014 • Star WarsWe're revisiting some of our favorite blog posts of the year!My favorite blog post of 2014 is Why I Read Lord of the Flies Every Five Years. Besides giving awesome author Ian Doescher another chance to shine, I love this post because I get to read a Shakespeare-ized intro to Lord of the Flies.I didn't think it could be done and was very happy to be proven wrong! - Suzanne (@iamasnarkypants)

January 2nd is unofficial National Science Fiction Day. Ever hear of a guy named Isaac Asimov? He was only one of the most famous science fiction writers of his time, which is why Sci-Fi Day is celebrated on his birthday! He also had some pretty impressive sideburns. Now, no one actually seems to be certain of the exact date he was born, including Asimov himself, but he chose to celebrate it on January 2nd and someone down the line decided to celebrate science fiction on the same day.
Questionable origins aside, what is one to do on a National Science Fiction Day? Read, of course! What could be better than dedicating a day to reading all those books you got for Christmas? In honor of Mr. Asimov and sci-fi writers and readers everywhere, here’s a list of my favorite sci-fi novels, as well as some sci-fi classics that I plan to pick up and enjoy on January 2nd.
