Given that some of the stories in Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith - The Collected Stories had been downloaded for free many thousands of times over the years, one might have wondered how the print edition would fare. I am pleased to report: pretty well. I have just been informed that the book has already gone through its second printing and that a third has been scheduled for later in the month!
I'm not too surprised, as the number one question people always had about the stories was "When's the print edition coming out?" I think a lot of people are like me: While I'm "platform agnostic" as a writer — I've written for print and online delivery, for magazines and books — I'm a bibliophile. I like to have the physical book on the shelf. Of course, it's available digitally, too — the collected edition is also available for Kindle and other devices. (For a second week, it's the #1 SF anthology on there.) But I'm glad we were able to have both digital and print formats — more choices are always good. I'm thrilled people are finding them.
As noted here, the Lost Tribe of the Sith comics series has just started in the last 24 hours. Great timing — and a good time to check out more of the Tribe's adventures!
