and Dark Lord
will pen a yet untitled hardcover novel about Darth Plagueis, this most mysterious of Sith Lords. Did he really help Palpatine conceive Anakin? Had he really discovered the secret of eternal life? Is Palpatine's first name really Frank? Looks like we'll just have to wait and see. Meanwhile, check out the official press release at StarWars.com
