The dead speak!
And type, apparently. Seems we now know why Palpatine was too busy to show his wrinkly kisser in between Return of the Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker – he was too busy writing a book, The Secrets of the Sith.
No doubt irked by the popularity of The Secrets of the Jedi released last Christmas, the Sith Lord put pen to paper (before he was destroyed by his granddaughter, of course) and wrote his own rebuttal that will educate readers (in particular younglings) on all manner of arcane facts about the now (hopefully) extinct dark-side enthusiasts.
Hop over to StarWars.com for the full announcement on the book (actually written by Mark Sumerak, but the above is how it's cutely presented to preserve canon) coming this August.
Grab yourself or a youngling in your life a copy of The Secrets of the Jedi via the link below - you'll also be helping support STARBURST at the same time!
