Last year, FANgirl contributor Mary Sheridan interviewed cultural critic Camille Paglia, author of the book Glitter Images: A Journey Through Art from Egypt to Star Wars. As the Star Wars Insider was preparing for its Prequel Trilogy focused issue, editor Jonathan Wilkins suggested Paglia’s thoughts on George Lucas, whom she calls the “greatest living artist,” would make a great addition to the issue. So I arranged an interview. As always, Paglia is insightful, using her knowledge of history and art to bring a unique perspective to Star Wars.
Also in the latest Star Wars Insider, VIPs and fans shared their “50 Greatest Reason To Love the Star Wars Prequels.” As I noted over at Suvudu, “[f]ans of Star Wars books will recognize some names: authors Jason Fry, Joe Schreiber, John Jackson Miller, Timothy Zahn, Drew Karpyshyn, J.W. Rinzler, Pablo Hidalgo, Karen Miller, and Troy Denning, editor Erich Schoeneweiss, artists Joe Corroney and Chris Trevas, and Suvudu contributors Eric Geller and me.”
