Star Wars horror novel: “Deathtroopers”

Joe Schreiber’s upcoming Star Wars horror novel finally has a title: Deathtroopers. The novel happens between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. You can read more about the book on Schreiber’s blog. Here’s a quote:

Earlier today, Lucasfilm announced that my forthcoming Star Wars horror novel will be called Deathtroopers, and that it will take place immediately before A New Hope. So there you go. I had the time of my life on this one, I have to say. I’m doing the final edits now, and I’ve tried to make it into exactly the kind of book you’d want to read if you were a child of the 70s who grew up with the original Star Wars trilogy and really digs horror in the vein of The Shining and Alien, with a little dose of William Gibson mixed in.

Deathtroopers is due out in November.
