    is the next Star Wars novel by Mr. Stover

    Here's the skinny from starwars.com:

    The Battle of Mindor is one of the great conflicts of the Galactic Civil War that has yet to be documented in a novel, but best-selling author Matthew Stover is tackling this conflict as the subject matter of his new Star Wars novel.

    Due out in February 2008, Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor tells the tale of the Alliance's efforts to stop Lord Shadowspawn and his black-clad legions of shadow stormtroopers shortly after the destruction of the second Death Star. All the classic heroes return -- Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, Lando, Threepio, Artoo and the pilots of Rogue Squadron -- in a thrilling adventure of good versus evil, with the fledgling New Republic battling the stubborn remains of a splintering Galactic Empire.

    I'm a huge fan of Matt's Star Wars books, it's in my mind to read up on all of the NJO books just to get to Traitor, but I'll definitely be getting this.

    I'm gonna have to pre-order this, along with CBK, some time before their respective due dates.

    Ive been looking forward to this, im excited to see how Matthew treats Luke. His writing for Obi Wan in Revenge was excellent imo

    FWIW, I posted my review earlier this week. I thought it was a good look at perceptions of the Hero and a solid adventure.
