The State of the Star Wars Fandom – my perspective

The matter of divisiveness in the Star Wars fan community has been bothering me for some time now.  These issues have gotten so severe that, were it not for me co-hosting Echo Base, I would have likely withdrawn from a lot of social media.  My perspective on the Star...

Lammas Night, by Katherine Kurtz

"I know what the Germans think - or at least what our chaps at Whitehall believe the Germans think.  Everyone knows that Hitler is fascinated with the occult, that he's rumored to have a stable of pet astrologers - and obviously we have some, too, yourself among them....

The Mud Trooper Files: Part 2

The Design If you search ‘mud trooper’ in your favorite internet search engine, you don’t get a whole lot… in a relative sense.  A lot of the images are the same and each day there is more fan art (which I think is awesome, by the way!).  You also get some images of...

Shades of the Force

The term ‘Grey Jedi’ is another source of discourse within the Star Wars fandom. What is a Grey Jedi? Do you like the term?

Don’t Blame the Kender

Don't let that title scare you off! Really, there is nothing to worry about. Like many fans what is now Legends, in Star Wars, I have been struggling with the drastic changes to the Star Wars Timeline, since Disney bought the franchise.  While I’ve loved the new...

About Bond: Episode 6 – James Bond & Star Wars
