"The End of Star Wars, But Not Its Fans"

Thanks to all of you for your incredibly kind support about my NPR interview today on the "Talk of the Nation" program about the Star Wars phenomenon and the nature of fandom. I'm not particularly good about thinking on my feet -- dammit, Jim, I'm a writer, not an orator! -- but, for what it's worth, it's now available online as streaming audio HERE. The interview came right after my first viewing of Revenge of the Sith... wow.


Warning! My quote for the day includes mild spoilers:

When Obi-Wan moved to follow, Yoda's gimer stick barred his way. "A moment, Master Kenobi. In your solitude on Tatooine, training I have for you. I and my new Master."

Obi-Wan blinked. "Your new Master?"

"Yes." Yoda smiled up at him. "And your old one..."


from the novel Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith by Matthew Stowe
