MTV Geek’s favorite Star Wars author Dan Wallace is coming out with yet another book, “Book of Sith,” on February 10th! The release coincides with the release of YOU-KNOW-WHAT 3D, right? I first met Dan at New York Comic Con 2010 when I interviewed him about his book “Jedi Path” and he’s been my fave ever since! I saw Dan again at last year’s NYCC and he gave us a sneak peak demo of “Book of Sith” and this book is equally cool! Dan even took time out of his busy day to give me a quick Sith lesson.
Here’s the trailer for the book, super awesome:
Here’s the book synopsis:
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…. Fragments of five essential dark side texts were passed among numerous Sith and Jedi—Darth Sidious, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Asajj Ventress, Mace Windu, Quinlan Vos, and others—who added their comments to the pages. Through the years, Darth Sidious pilfered and secreted away these texts, along with various objects created by his most powerful predecessors. Using this collected knowledge, the Emperor wrote his own manifesto, a sixth text, as well as a preface for the compilation. Each original text sheds light on the plots, exploits, and philosophy of the infamous Sith Order.

And here are the amazing book specs:
The 160-page book features a faux-leather cover with debossing and heat stamping. Five removable artifacts—including a scrap of a Sith burial shroud, a battle map from the Great Galactic War, a diagram of Palpatine’s master plan, an Empire propaganda poster, and a note from Luke Skywalker—are tucked within the pages of the book. The book’s elegant design showcases original illustrations by acclaimed STAR WARS® artists, including Paul Allan Ballard, Jeff Carlisle, Chris Reiff, Chris Trevas, Russell Walks, Terryl Whitlatch, and the illustrators of Aristia/Hive Studios. The book and two accompanying mementoes—a Sith crystal and a Sith talisman—are enclosed in a mechanized blood-red and black Holocron case, which opens at the touch of a button with flashing lights and sounds.
