Star Wars: Lost Tribe of The Sith: Precipice - FREE

Many of you have probably read the "Fate of the Jedi" series as it is written thus far. There are currently two published books ("Outcast" by Aaron Allston & "Omen" by Christie Golden). Suvudu.com is proud to deliver a FREE e-book, the first in a hopefully long series, in which the stories of the Sith are told during these hard times for force sensitive beings.

"Star Wars: Lost Tribe of The Sith: Precipice" written by John Jackson Miller, tells the Sith's battle to survive, and their quest to re-conquer the galaxy! They will never stop, even when faced with genocide! This e-book is only 4 chapters long, but it is an excellent addition to the Star Wars "Fate of the Jedi" series and I look forward to many more in the near future!

Here is a brief overview of the book:
"For the ruthless Sith Order, failure is not an option. It is an offense punishable by death—and a fate to which Commander Yaru Korsin will not succumb. But on a crucial run to deliver troops and precious crystals to a combat hotspot in the Sith's war against the Republic, Korsin and the crew of the mining ship Omen are ambushed by a Jedi starfighter. And when the Sith craft crash-lands, torn and crippled, on a desolate alien planet, the hard-bitten captain finds himself at odds with desperate survivors on the brink of mutiny—and his own vengeful half brother, who's bent on seizing command.

No matter the cost, Korsin vows that it will not be his blood and bones left behind on this unknown world. For the way of the Sith leaves little room for compromise—and none for mercy."

Tauntaun Sleeping Bags - April Fool's Joke Turned Reality...Soon.

LA Weekly columnist Gendy Alimurung just wrote an excellent article about an April Fool's Joke gone terribly...right! For 2009 ThinkGeek.com had a slew of April Fool's Joke item listings including an Ultimate Assassin's Weapon Ice Mold, a USB Pet Rock, and of course the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag. Apparently the promise of a "Classic Star Wars sleeping bag (that) simulates the warmth of a Tauntaun carcass" is ideal for Star Wars fans and they weren't too happy it was not available! If it was good enough for Luke, I suppose its good enough for me and my kids!

Which leads to this week. Shane Peterman, Think Geeks Public Relations manager, told LA Weekly that they are trying to obtain a license from Lucasfilms in order to actually produce the sleeping bag! They have no idea when this will occur, or if ever, it is all in the hands of Lucasfilms now to approve or deny the license so they can start production on a viable scale.

The joke price was $39 as listed, but I'm getting collectors and geeks alike will pay more for something of this caliber! People are already commenting on the article saying they would pay upward of $89! I'd love to have one, but for $89 it better be a -20 degree thermal sleeping bag at least! :)

What do you think? Would you want one? How much would you be willing to pay? Adult or children's sizes? Both? I know you want to sleep under the stars with children in tow, all enjoying a nice warm Tauntaun to sleep in!
