has posted the first micro-excerpt
from Star Wars: Maul: Lockdown
by Joe Schreiber. Check it out below.
Maul stared at the thing. The gray slope of its face was a surgeonís nightmare of ritualistic scars, metal rings and studs, wire loops, and hooks, with bluish sacks pulsating beneath its eyes, all of it siphoning down and inward toward a gaping, razor-toothed mouth. Even its arms seemed to have been plucked from two different organisms. The right hand was a blunt-knuckled fist, the left an elongated spider-fingered claw. Together they formed a mallet and blade, one made for pounding, the other for slashing. It was the right that had come careening out of nowhere just seconds before, slamming Maul backward and knocking out one of his teeth.Maul: Lockdown
The thing reached down and picked up Maulís incisor from the floor of the cell. Straightening up, it shoved the tooth into an empty space in its own mouth, twisting it until it lodged in place. Then it grinned at Maul as if asking how he liked the sight of one of his teeth in its mouthóanother trophy for its collection.
Maul gazed back at it.
And then the rage came.
And the rage was good.
