GIVEAWAY! The Thrawn Trilogy Paperbacks

Are you a Legends fan? Are you hoping to see more characters than Thrawn brought into the new canon? Want to win a copy of the new Thrawn Trilogy paperback release?

You’re in luck! We have two copies of the Thrawn Trilogy to give away to listeners. We’d like one copy to go to a longtime Legends fan, and one to go to a fan who’s new to the books.

For the first: Comment on this blog post with a Zahn character you’d love to see brought into canon. It can be in a new book, comic, on Rebels, a movie–whatever works best. Then, tell us how you’d incorporate that character and what storyline they’d be a part of. If you feel so inclined to write us fanfiction, we will not object!

For the second: Comment on this blog post and tell us why you’re interested in reading the Thrawn Trilogy. What intrigues you most about Legends? Is there a character you’ve been wanting to learn more about? Are you just now starting to read Star Wars books, period? Inquiring minds want to know!

Good luck! This contest will be open through Monday, September 26. Winners will be announced on our next episode.

US residents only, please. Thank you to Del Rey for providing us with copies of the books!

To defeat an enemy, you must know them: Enter the ThrawnCast

A few months ago, I had an idea for a new podcast in which I (and a few of my friends) would read through the Thrawn Trilogy by Timothy Zahn. I was inspired by Rogue Podron, the show on the Far Far Away Radio network that’s reading through all the X-wing novels. (Check them out if you haven’t; it’s a great show.) It’s no secret I love the Thrawn Trilogy. They’re some of my favorite books of all time. I wanted to read them again, and I wanted to share them with my fellow Star Wars fans.

Then Celebration London happened, and as previously rumored, the Rebels Season 3 trailer introduced Grand Admiral Thrawn as the show’s new villain. Not only that, but it was announced that TImothy Zahn was already working on a new book, Thrawn, to be released in April. The stars were aligning, the signs were clear: it was time to start this podcast.

Thus the ThrawnCast was born.

Over the next several months, we’ll be reading through the Thrawn Trilogy – Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command – and ending just in time for Thrawn‘s release. Along the way we’ll compare and contrast Legends and the new canon, discuss the history of the Legends timeline, and the legacy of Grand Admiral Thrawn as a character. And of course we’ll discuss his appearances on Rebels.

I’ll be joined by four hosts on this journey: Brian, Matthew, Amanda, and Tyler. Some of us have revisited this trilogy recently, some haven’t read it in years, and one of us is a complete newbie! It’s going to be a great ride, and I hope you’ll join us. We’ll be recording our introductory episode on August 29, and regular episodes will begin the week of September 12.
