GIVEAWAY: William Shakespeare’s Star Wars


Nay…I am thy father!

Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of George Lucas’s epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Wars abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. ‘Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearsome stormtroopers, signifying…pretty much everything.

Want to win Ian Doescher’s creative, officially licensed iambic-pentameter tale for the galaxy far, far away? How about if we throw in a sweet 14 by 24 inch poster of the cover, as seen above?

I have three book-and-poster sets for thee. How shalt thou enter? Let me count the ways:

1. Post a comment below.

2. In said comment, write me a scene from any version of Star Wars (movies, games, cartoons, EU are all fair game) in the style of Shakespeare (it doesn’t have to be iambic pentameter). If you’re not familiar with Shakespeare, make it up. Imagine what his style might be. I’m not grading on accuracy, but entertainment value.

3. Enter as many times as thou wilt.

4. Contest closes at 11:59 p.m. on July 2nd, 2013, which is the day the book comes out.

Now, verily, get thee to a keyboard!
