CANCELLED: The Darth Plagueis novel by James Luceno

Bad news from the Star Wars realm: the novel that James Luceno was writing about Darth Plagueis has been cancelled. The word given is that Lucasfilm "decided that this was not the right time to delve into Palpatine's back story and Plagueis's beginnings..."

Bummer. This was the one forthcoming Star Wars novel that I was seriously looking forward to. I was really intrigued by what little we learned about Darth Plagueis in Revenge of the Sith and have been dying to know more about him. Looks like it's gonna be a long time before we find out anything more definitive about him. There is a positive side to this though, I'm thinking: if the book has been cancelled, then Plagueis may not necessarily have been a Muun, as he's said to have been since the novel was announced. I think Plagueis should be human, and maybe there's a chance he will be after all.
