    When the Imperial prison barge Purge–temporary home to five hundred of the galaxy’s most ruthless killers, rebels, scoundrels, and thieves–breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting, derelict, and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party from the Purge is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back–bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours nearly all aboard the Purge die in ways too hideous to imagine.

    And death is only the beginning.

    The Purge’s half-dozen survivors–two teenage brothers, a sadistic captain of the guards, a couple of rogue smugglers, and the chief medical officer, the lone woman on board–will do whatever it takes to stay alive. But nothing can prepare them for what lies waiting aboard the Star Destroyer amid its vast creaking emptiness that isn’t really empty at all. For the dead are rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry.


    Book is to be released today, just curious if anyone else is as troubled by this as me.

    I think you should, then let us know and then I will decide whether or not to get it.

    yup, but no mention of Jedi. Takes place before A New Hope.

    Sounds pretty stupid but also pretty awesome. Storm Troopers vs. Zombies? Count me in.

    Found this cool fan-made trailer just yesterday:

    The problem is you just can't tell if it is going to suck or not.

    Who cares? Buy it from a local Barnes & Noble, read the first chapter, and return it if it sucks (or after you finish it if you're a cheapass).

    :rofl: I have a 9 yr old boy & a 10 yr old boy. They see anything Star Wars and we have to keep it. I guess it might open their eyes to zombie stuff (even if it sucks).
