Star Wars/Mock

Han shoots first again!

I can't even put into words how happy this makes me:
This September: Original Unaltered Star Wars Trilogy on DVD
Why yes, George, late is better than never. Thank you.


In publication news, my tribute to Octavia Butler, "The Parables of Octavia Butler," is now available in the hard-copy June 2006 issue of Reason.

Also, my scholarly article "Reimagining Rose: Portraits of Tolkien's Rosie Cotton in Twenty-First Century Fan Fiction" is now out in the new Winter/Spring 2006 issue of the journal Mythlore.


In the spirit of this Star Wars news, I offer a quote for the day:

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... It is a period of civil war. Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire's ultimate weapon, the Death Star, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet. Pursued by the Empire's sinister agents, Princess Leia races home aboard her starship, custodian of the stolen plans that can save her people and restore freedom to the galaxy...

Star Wars, old-school style!
