: : Hi everyone,it's been a while since I visited the forum so I don't know if this is old or new news but in the latest PREVIEWS for things to be ordered for January shipment to all comic and book stores, this information was sent to me.
: : Indiana Jones Secret of the Sphinx (by Max McCoy)
: : The Omega Book reveals the personal histories of everyone who will ever live. Possession of the book, according to legend, gives the owner the power to write one's own destiny and rewrite the destiny of others. Indiana Jones must find the book and keep it away from the madman who is bent on rewriting humanity's final chapter. (Bantam) 204 pgs... $5.50
: : Just thought I pass on the info to all.
: : Deirdre
: While it is truly great that the next book is _finally_ coming, am I the only one who is very, very disapointed that it is only 204 pages?
: Also, while I'm pretty sure that the Omega Book was just created by Mr. McCoy, but I don't suppose anyone has heard of it as a real legend?
I've been telling my wife all year that it was probably going to end up being a very short story, due to the edits and rewrites that Lucasfilm demanded. I am very saddened that it is indeed only 204 pages. I immediately compared this with the previous releases. That's even smaller than Dinosaur Eggs, which was way too short! Well, at least we'll have a couple exciting hours of reading! Too bad this is the last in the series!
