The next Star Wars novel out from Del Rey is Scourge by Jeff Grubb. The book follows Mander Zuma, a Jedi archivist, as he scours Hutt Space to solve the mystery of who murdered his former Padawan. Scourge, set nineteen years after A New Hope, will be Grubb's first book in the Expanded Universe. To get fans excited, Del Rey and TheForce.Net are giving away three copies of the book and presenting an interview with Jeff Grubb. The interview, conducted by me, will run on both Del Rey's Suvudu blog and TFN on April 24th, when the book is released.
To enter the giveaway, simply type your email address and the answer to the challenge question in the form below! Scourge is about the Hutts, so I thought it would be appropriate to make the challenge question about them, too. The giveaway will end at 12:01am on Friday, April 20th. I will randomly select three entries with the correct answer to the challenge question, contact those winners to get their mailing addresses, and forward the addresses to Del Rey. This contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada only -- sorry, international readers.
Look for my interview with author Jeff Grubb when Star Wars: Scourge is released next Tuesday. Good luck to all giveaway entrants!
