I just about have The Unifying Force wrapped up. Already I can say it’s my favorite book of the series. I won’t go into any detail here because I don’t want to spoil any of the awesome surprises this book will spring on you. I’m honestly sad to this series come to an end but there is apparently life after NJO. This story from Star Wars.com says that Troy Denning who authored one of the other great books in the NJO series Star by Star is already signed up to pen a new novel that takes place some time after NJO.
I get lots of mail every week from people asking about the interview I conducted with my Grandpa regarding his experiences in WW II and his thoughts on war related games. I promise it’s still coming. My schedule recently heated up a bit but I’m still trying to crack out this article for you guys. I’ll be taking a short vacation to Spokane for Thanksgiving and I’m hoping I’ll have some time to sneak off and get some of my thoughts typed out.
Generally we do the comic strip the day before it has to go up. That’s how we keep brand Penny Arcade “fresh” and “dialed in” while at the same time maintaining our relevancy with today’s fickle 18-24 yo demographic. However since I’ll be gone this week we had to do a comic in advance. I’d like to take this opportunity to please ask my nieces not to read the comic on Friday. Also, if you do happen to read the comic strip please don’t tell your mom about it.
