Link Round-Up: December 28

I’ve just finished listening to Joel McNeely’s Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire soundtrack.

I bought this when it came out in the spring of 1996. And I have no idea what I did with that CD. So, after seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I found it inexpensively on eBay.

It arrived today.

I can’t get the multimedia features of the disc to work; Windows freaks out. McNeely’s score — the reason I bought the disc — is nice.

I never played the video game for the Nintendo 64, but I did read the novel and the comic book. Since next year is the 20th-anniversary of Shadows, I have this dream that an Expanded Edition of the Shadows novel could be published, this one incorporating the Darth Vader and Boba Fett material that featured solely in the comic book.

Shadows was a weird project — you had to experience it in a bunch of different formats to get the whole story.

Now, for some links I read today:
