Darth Bane Sequel Surfaces Online Team | June 18, 2007

Vigilant fan sites like were the first to spot an otherwise untitled Darth Bane Sequel novel pop up on Random House’s website, causing a few surprises. Sue Rostoni of LucasBooks just commented on the Official Site Message Boards.

“Shelly [Shapiro from Del Rey] called me late last week to propose an additional hardcover this fall. THIS fall. Yep. Del Rey figured the market could bear one more, and since the Darth Bane novel was a hit, a follow-up, written by Drew, seemed the best idea. So the untitled Feb. 09 hardcover (previously the “Plagueis” novel) has been moved up, and Drew agreed to continue Bane’s story. So we’re off and running. The release date is slated for December 26th, 2007.”
