In this installment, hosts Brian and Nanci pat themselves on the back for making it episode two, proclaiming the show is now “a thing.” Right off the bat we talk about a pair of new releases in the world of Star Wars books, Darth Plagueis and the Haynes Millennium Falcon Owner’s Workshop Manual. Nanci talks about her article examining the effect of the prequel films on the Expanded Universe and dives into FSL Tonight, a delightful mashup of sports and fandom. Meanwhile, Brian rants about the lack of sales metrics in print literature*. Both of us take a few minutes to gush about the latest book we’ve read, The Hunger Games.
*Really. We tried to stop him. We’re so sorry.
Next up we take a look at death in the Expanded Universe, examining six instances where death worked and six instances where it left us grumbling. Be warned, the hosts are feelin’ ranty today!

Nanci’s featured fanwork pick: Lord Vader’s Limpet by frodogenic
Brian’s featured fanwork pick: Rob’s replica speeder bike handle lightsaber from I, Jedi.
