Awakened force

Yeah, today is the day that its airing in Sweden. Thirty years has passed since the last one.

This year is also the year that Leigh Brackett would have turned 100.
If that doesnt ring any bells please check her up, she was one of the pioneers in the space opera genre and really giving women protagonists a place in her novels.

Her reputation was so great that she was contracted by Lucas do write the screenplay for the Empire strikes back. Unfortunately she passed away in cancer before she got the opportunity to see the finished results. And sadly the plans for spin-off novels with Leia and Han Solo were´nt realised.

Here´s a good summary of her works, which gives a few pointers of where to start digging for the treasures in her extensive catalogue.

And of course I´m going to see new movie, it will be a great source of inspiration and topic for discussion in the upcoming weekends.
