While many books might have songs that are associated with them, this is the first Star Wars book that actually has a soundtrack produced for it, in advance of its release.

At New York Comic Con 2009, Del Rey handed out copies of a Death Troopers Soundtrack, which appears to have input from the author. The track listing is as follows:
1) 20th Century Fox Fanfare with CinemaScope Extension - John Williams
2) 30 Days in the Hole - Gov't Mule
3) Call Me Number Five - Paul Weller
4) Theme from The Shining - Wendy Carlos
5) Gouge Away - Pixies
6) Death and All His Friends - Coldplay
7) Superbeast - Rob Zombie
8) Bottom - Tool
9) Emergency Exit - Beck
10) Hurt - Johnny Cash
11) Please Read the Letter - Robert Plant and Allison Krauss

The inside cover of this dust jacket folds out to a mini poster, and the cover of the book is actually printed the same as the dust jacket, a first for a Star Wars book.

From the first appearance of Darth Vader in the groundbreaking movie Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Star Wars fans have known what terror feels like–and they loved it. But never before has Star Wars publishing ventured into the unknown territory of true horror...until now.

When the Imperial prison barge Purge breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope seems to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting, derelict and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back–bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours, nearly all aboard the Purge will die. And death is only the beginning.

For aboard the Star Destroyer, amid its vast creaking emptiness that isn't really empty at all. For the dead are rising, soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry.
