Suvudu Interviews Aaron Allston: Wraith Squadron and Fate of the Jedi News

The website SUVUDU has post a very good interview with author extraordinaire Aaron Allston.  In which he provides some details on the Fate of the Jedi series and his forthcoming new Wraith Squadron novel.

Let’s talk about the new novel featuring the Wraith Squadron. I know the book isn’t scheduled for publication until 2012, but can you give us just a little information about that?

Sure. Most of the action takes place in the same approximate period as Fate of the Jedi, but there are critical chapters that revisit the Wraiths in earlier years, starting just after they made the jump to become an Intelligence unit. The current-era story reunites some of the longtime Wraiths, introduces new ones, and even has second-generation Wraiths.
Not every subplot that arose in Fate of the Jedi will have been resolved by that series’ end, and it’s up to the Wraiths to clean up a big mess left behind. That’s about all I’m willing to say at this time.
Except that I grew up in the 1960s, the Golden Age of movie and TV spies — The Man From U.N.C.L.E., James Bond, Mission: Impossible, Derek Flint, The Wild, Wild West, countless others. They’re with me still, occupying a psychotic little wing of my brain. And if you don’t hear some of those theme tunes in your head when you’re reading the new Wraith Squadron novel, I haven’t done my job.

Regarding Fate of the Jedi's villain Abeloth;

Nor can I share much of what I know about her — unlike most monsters, she has several stages of “reveal” and not just one.
