Paul Urquhart Discusses Co-Writing The Essential Guide To Warfare

Posted By Mike on April 17, 2012

While we've previously posted on Jason Fry's series of endnotes for the newly released Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare, his co-writer (and former TFN staffer) Paul R. Urquhart has also done a little blogging about the writing process over at Suvudu. If you've already picked up the book, Paul's post is a great light-hearted view into the process. If you have yet to purchase the book, the post can serve as a fantastic primer of what you can expect. We've provided an excerpt below but make sure to click here for the full read.


"But what do you do when youíre writing a book that needs to describe the technicalities of how an Ewok defeats a Stormtrooper? You have to come up with straight-faced explanations that donít seem completely crazy or compromise the inherent fun and lightness of the saga.

Thatís the situation I found myself in when I was asked to co-write Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare Ė a new guide to the warriors and weaponry of the Star Wars saga. Of course, I jumped at the chance, and thus, I became a sort of kilted Boba Fett sidekick to lead author Jason Fryís baseball-bat-wielding Darth Vader.

And then I realized just what Iíd gotten myself into.

How do you describe the technicalities of how an Ewok defeats a Stormtrooper?

Well, you have some fun doing it, for one thing. And for my inaugural blog post here on Suvudu, I wanted to share some of the fun I had working on this book, and some of the things that I learned about telling a story."
