So remember that AWESOME story about zombie stormtroopers called Deathtroopers? Well the author responsible for that masterpiece, Joe Schreiber, and its follow-up Re Harvest is giving us a story about Darth Maul pre-prequel days. The story will be called Star Wars: Maul: Lockdown and here is the official synopsis:
From the mind of Joe Schreiber, New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Death Troopers, comes the delirious follow-up to last year’s Darth Plagueis. In a tale of retribution and survival set before the events of The Phantom Menace, Darth Plagueis and Darth Sidious dispatch Sith apprentice Darth Maul on a secret mission to infiltrate a criminal empire operating from inside Cog Hive Seven-a hidden prison teeming with the galaxy’s most savage criminals. There, he must contend against the scummiest and most villainous in gladiatorial death matches while carrying out his masters’ clandestine commands. Failure is not an option; success will ignite the revenge of the Sith against the Jedi Order.
Look for the novel sometime towards the end of 2013!
May the Force be with you!
