I'll post the link on my Youtube channel and Facebook. I don't know a lot of Indyfans on either of those, but hopefully some might just come across those pages and feel the same as the rest of us.

Shipwreck is right. If there's no Indy V, we have got to fight to stop Indy from being put in a museum to gather dust. It's what we should do as fans.

Supporting a post above, Star Wars DOES have a slew of poor novels. And they're released all the time! Working at a book store for a year, I noticed that Star Wars novels took up a whole shelf and yet we rarely sold more than a couple a month. If Wedge Antilles gets his own series, then at the very least give Indy ONE more novel.
Hey! Here's an idea, make it a Borders Exclusive or something.

heck, they make SW books that feature characters not even in the movies and a movie icon like Indy has trouble even getting one book, what a disgrace. I signed by the way.

Changed title "Staff of Kings novelization cancelled" to "Petition to publish Staff of Kings novelization!" If that's okay with everyone...

Also mentioned the petition here.

I took Macgregor's e-mail that was posted a few pages back and searched through facebook and I think I found him.

Should I inform him of the group/petition?

Or is that too obnoxious?

Alright, I sent him a message with a link to the group.

Here's the message:

Subject: Rob, we want you Indy Novel to get published!

Us Indyfans at theraider.net's message board "The Raven" think it's unfair about the current situation of your "Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings" novel. Personally, you're a fantastic writer and we LOVE your Indy novels so much and many of us couldn't wait for this one.

So I started a Facebook group with a link to a petition(created by Raven member Shipwreck) declaring that your novel: Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings, gets published.

I've posted it at various Indiana Jones websites, forums, and pages. Hopefully it will get noticed and will be the start of something.

Here's the link if you want to view it:
http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=200234595415

Thank you for your time.

It would seem that he's already aware, but I'm sure he'll be pleased to hear from you nevertheless.

I added a link to the Facebook group on the thread I started at the COW forum. I'll also add it to the other message boards I posted on.

Is anyone a member on the Jedi Council Forum over at TheForce.net? I'm not a member there, but I just took a look and saw that there is no mention of the cancellation. Would be worth it posting there as well.

Here are places to notify the multitude of Star Wars fans of the petition. Know any others?

Be sure to point out it's an original story by George Lucas:
Quote:
Set in 1939, this epic, original story – written for the first time under the direction of George Lucas – puts you in the fedora of the legendary adventure hero as he unravels the clues found in ancient artifacts spanning the globe.

Guys, I don't like to be a buzzkill, but I wouldn't get hopes up. These petitions almost never work. You would need thousands of signatures, within basically a week or two, to even get LucasFilm's attention. Furthermore, they've clearly made their decision, and it's based on realities of the publishing industry: to push the book up to a June release would lose more money than it would take in. They wouldn't have time to drum up publicity and all that sort of jazz. By contrast, if they didn't publish it until December or so, all the corporate marketing synergy would be gone, due to the different release times.

Maybe they'll release the eBook, but I'd be shocked. George Lucas hasn't cared what his fans wanted since...well, since ever, really.

Feel free to post about it on the Dark Horse/Star Wars forums too:

http://www.darkhorse.com/Help/Boards...b2bf8db2f61df9

They should have done a comic adaptaion of the game like they did for last year's "The Force Unleashed" game...

Put this on any Star Wars website you know of. There's a big crossover fanbase between George's two series.

As Dr. Jones would say "This is intolerable!"

Agreed, but it doesn't hurt to try.

Perhaps not, I'd disagree, but he's a fan of money... and I don't see how he loses any by a book not selling well. Del Rey is the one who publishes the books.

I remember when they were going to release original Firefly novels based off of the TV show (It's amazing). The publisher canceled the books, but one was already done, so the author 'published' it as a fanfiction.

I just want to read the damn book.

Surprised the author got away with that. You can be sure that if MacGregor did that, Lucas would get after him hard.

I think the story was that it was for the movie, Joss Whedon had to sign off on the other books and never got around to it, so only the novelization was released.
