FROM THE PUBLISHER
It is a dark time; Bad Fan Fic authors were overflowing the internet and starting to try actually selling their work. the evil Galactic Empire rules with a titanium fist. You know… the point in titanium is that it’s light. A small band of rebels, led by Imperial Senator Princess Leia, Actually she wasn’t the leader. There were several people above her. has stolen plans to the Empire’s weapon of
Little does the Princess know that she has a secret ally aboard the Death Star, who will help her bring the rebellion into a final, catastrophic encounter with the Empire. You mean, other than Luke, Han, Artoo, Threepio, and Chewbacca? And little does the Empire’s leaders know that the Dark Lord himself harbors a secret with explosive consequences for the galaxy... Pffft. Only one?
Another Hope is Lori Jareo’s first full-length novel. I’d say it’s also her last, only she can still self-publish. She has also written technical manuals, how-to articles for the manufacturing technology sector, software help, and blogs for Macintosh computers. Lori works full-time as a book editor and lives with her family in Cincinnati, Ohio. She has been a Star Wars fan since 1977. Which makes her both old enough and experienced enough to know better than to do this.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Frederick Turner Can’t help noticing this is only one person.
"In the remarkable genre of apocryphal Star Wars mythology “Apocryphal”? See, this is what happens when you let poets handle your press releases. The rest of us just call it “the Expanded Universe.” comes Lori Jareo’s Another Hope. You just said that this book comes in a mythology. *headdesk* Holy preposition abuse. Mixing familiar moments from Lucas’s first Star Wars film In other words, PLAGIARIZING with a mass of new story material, Jareo gives us an alternative history of what happened on Tatooine, Alderaan and the Death Star based more soundly on the now-complete three prequel episodes. More soundly? So now you’re claiming this book is more canon than the movies? Oh, The Plaid One is going to LOVE this. We get a delightful new Mary Sue character, Ryoo Naberrie, a gutsy underling on the Death Star; backstage details of that space fortress; the politics of Darth Vader’s henchmen, and more insight into Vader himself; More than we got in the three epic movies and dozens of books about him? and the story of the Organas, Princess Leia’s adoptive parents. Did anyone else read that as “abortive”? Best of all, Biggs, Luke Skywalker’s old wingman, has been promoted from the status of ‘Ensign Jones’ (the ill-fated Enterprise crewman from another mythology, who is always the fourth man on the Away Team and who never comes back) The technical term is “Redshirt,” and Biggs wasn’t one. to the glory of being a regular hero." “Regular Hero”?

If you’re assuming that Frederick Turner is one of the poets her company publishes, you are correct.
