It's Away! - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
It's Away!
I am happy to announce--and celebrate with my spiffy new layout--the launch of Saga Journal, a brand spanking new site dedicated to Star Wars analysis and essays. Check out my expansion of an essay that appeared here first on the nature of SW as a seasonal myth! See a_p_ examine the political life of Anakin Skywalker! Our own lazypadawan goes into the Campbellian mythic journey as it applies to Luke Skywalker!

Seriously, this should be a good site, and I hope you'll check it out. Even if you're just a casual fan... it's always fun to dig into a story.

I read your "Discovering Star Wars" story and I nearly fell out of my chair when you said you saw it in Warsaw, NY. My mom had been an exchange student living there 40-odd years ago. She lived with a local family and went to the high school. It's a small galaxy after all!

Eeek. I actually lived in Perry (the next town over; Warsaw is the big town, the county seat), but Warsaw's spitting distance. Wow.

o.O.... nice! Do you think they'd accept a more or less evident work on Exar Kun as the primary Force focar before Anakin? (First lad in ages wherein the two sides of the Force were united)?

It's movie-focused; EU-based essays are outside the scope of the site.

Glad you liked what was there though!

How wonderful! I just read a_p's essay on Anakin's politics -- very well done!

There really should be a way to comment on the essays or discuss them on the site, I'd say that's about the only thing missing from it.

I wish I could say I'd write a paper for a future volume, but considering how many papers I'm already writing for school... well, brain's a little overloaded I think. However, I would like to volunteer to help if the staff ever needs help with future site designs or programming or anything. I've gotten pretty good from working on SOTW.

I'll pass it on. And yes, I love a-p's essay; it's really very good.
