James Luceno

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
James Luceno (born in 1947) is the New York Times bestselling author of three Star Wars: The New Jedi Order novels, Agents of Chaos: Hero's Trial, Agents of Chaos: Jedi Eclipse and The Unifying Force. He also wrote The Visual Dictionary of Star Wars, Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and the eBook Darth Maul: Saboteur. This ebook was effectively a prologue to his prequel trilogy novel, set directly before The Phantom Menace, called Cloak of Deception.

He is also the author of the new Web Warrior series and co-author of the popular Robotech novelization series with his close friend, the late Brian Daley. The pair wrote under the pseudonym Jack McKinney. He wrote a tribute to Daley which is posted on Daley's website along with photos of the two of them. Daley and Luceno were also amongst a team of writers for the 1986 television cartoon series The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers.

Luceno wrote the film adaptations for The Shadow and The Mask of Zorro. He lives in Annapolis, Maryland with his wife and children.

His latest novels within the Star Wars universe include Labyrinth of Evil and Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader.

In an interview with Star Wars Insider magazine, Luceno said that he would like to write a future novel dealing with the search for immortality that both Qui-Gon Jinn and Darth Plagueis embarked upon in their own separate ways. However, in a talk show interview in February, 2007, [1] he indicated that the novel was currently on hold due to Expanded Universe continuity concerns. The novel has now been canceled and is being replaced by a Darth Bane novel

Daley passed at age 49? Too young man, very sad.

I'm a big fan of their work. Reading the novels really paints Robotech in a new light, a lot of detail in there that you don't see in the show. They went into a lot more detail about Mirya and her time on the SDF-1, her difficulties adapting to Earth culture, etc. There is so much fantastic stuff in their novels. I'm glad to see that the Shadow Chronicles preserved some of their stuff when it came out, stuff like Lynn Kyle's death, Edwards' treachery, the Haydonites and other alien races. A lot of great stuff. Thanks to both Daley and Luceno for their inspired work in keeping Robotech alive!
