by A.R.R.R. Roberts


Published May 1st 2005 by Gollancz (first published January 1st 2005).

Oh, sure, a long time ago, in what seems like a galaxy far, far away, there was a very good and thoroughly entertaining SF film. But that's long gone. So here it comes, a six-part mock-epic that begins in the middle of the action, pits good against evil, and features hairy co-pilots, green gurus, bizarre hairdos, steel bras, and campy robots. Published May 1st 2005 by Gollancz (first published January 1st 2005).

I'm planning to just release multiple chapters at a time, rather than just one chapter. This is a story I've had in mind for a long time, and because this story doesn't follow any specific episodes, hopefully I'll be able to update more. This story also features Jacob as a main character, and part of the Ghost crew, as the same Jedi described in my ATLA/Star Wars crossover. If you want to know more, check out the story. He got a call on his cell phone. David, are you seeing this?"

A galaxy far, far away is a setting for a story which is so far away from Earth, that .

A galaxy far, far away is a setting for a story which is so far away from Earth, that the very fact of its distance lends an air of credibility to even the most fantastic of plots. After all, no one really knows what's out there in the vastness of space Spaceballs. The final mission of the first game takes place near Hiigara and it has a very familiar looking moon orbiting it. Due to the essential nature of the Homeworld games (the gameplay is 3D ship-to-ship combat), presenting actual beings that the user could care about was problematic.

The Soddit, The McAtrix Derided, and the aptly titled The Sellamillion: The parodies are hilarious, but the numbers are serious, with millions of copies sold. And now, in our very own time and galaxy, Star Wars finally gets its comeuppance-just in time to coincide with the release of the 6th and final film. The force is with us!

A parody commentary and retelling of the Star Wars films. Quite amusing, both in its directly highlighting of absurdity from the films as well as positing its own more bizarre satire. Also benefits from a strong command of language, playing with elements of phrasing and effectively conveying voice. Beyond that there's not too much to say, I found it effective and enjoyable but intrinsically lightweight, and not really up to the level of sublime satire that Pratchett on occasion delivers. There's some nice meta stuff caused by Roberts' relabeling the Force "the Farce" and running with it, producing an environment where random falling and slapstick humor are the underlying mystical force. More generally the book works well at collapsing the absurdities, contradictions and poor reasoning in the original source material, and to that end works well but delivers little beyond comedy concerning Star Wars.

Insofar as there is a more sustained story or real coherence, it lies in two elements. 1. The continual playing up of the robots as far more intelligent, self-aware and resentful than in the original story, poising a type of challenge to the Lucas-defined limitations in intelligence and general creativity 2) the eventual revelation that the environment of the story isn't a unique universe, instead it's a virtual environment composed of pastiches of comedy and other science fiction. This forms a reasonably well-worked twist at the end, and points to the mixed and turbulent culture of mass-culture science fiction.

A.R.R.R. Roberts always writes funny parodies, but this one is especually good. and as always, its very clever without being too crude.
