The good folks over at NJOE.com have stumbled upon a novel listing for Star Wars: The Old Republic to be penned by Star Wars veteran Sean Williams. Per the listing at PubEasy.com, the novel has a release date of July 27, 2010 and has an isbn # of 9870345511324. We, and everyone else, can only assume that this is a tie-in to the highly anticipated MMO of the same name. ClubJade.net goes a bit further by not only wondering if this is the novel that Sean Williams had auctioned off a "walk on role" to support victims of Austrailian wildfires, but also if this is the previously listed novel for September 2010 on Sue Rostoni's shedule. The move up could indicate a replacement of the now cancelled novel from a well known author. Got all that? It's as good a guess as any and we'll keep you posted as we hear more.
Secondly, NJOE.com reports that per Sue Rostoni, this novel is not the previously listed novel for September 2010. Looks like the TOR book and the September novel are two different entities. NJOE.com doesn't provide the link to Sue's comments on the SW.com boards, but they've yet to steer us in the wrong direction. We'll continue to keep you posted.
