  • Verily. A new hope
  • Bard meets sci-fi in glorious iambic pentameter
  • May the verse be with you!
  • Now YOU are (reading) the Master!


Inspired by one of the greatest creative minds in the English language (and William Shakespeare) here is an officially licensed retelling of George Lucas's epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon.

The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Wars abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. ’Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearstome Stormtroopers, signifying...pretty much everything.

Reimagined in glorious iambic pentameter—and complete with twenty gorgeous Elizabethan illustrations--William Shakespeare’s Star Wars will astound and edify Rebels and Imperials alike. Zounds! This is the book you’re looking for.

Have a more than sneaky peak into some bard sci-fi here.

Early reviews of the book are so nicely written, that it would be a waste of time to try and better them. So here they are:

"The Bard at his finest, with all the depth of character, insightful soliloquies, and clever wordplay that we've come to expect from the Master. For those who wish to read the Star Wars legend in the original Elizabethan, this is the book for you."--Timothy Zahn, New York Times bestselling author of Scoundrels

"Whether your tastes run to Alderaan or Avon, this reimagining of Star Wars overflows with heart and wit." --Jason Fry, author of "Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare"

"Zounds, the Forsooth is strong in this one! Two of the most creative minds in the universe collide with spectacular, hilarious and surprisingly touching insight into the original classic. This truly is Star Wars as you like it."--Joe Schreiber, author of "Star Wars: Death Troopers "and "Lenny Cyrus, School Virus"

“An elegant translation for a more civilized age. Let's face it—if you love Shakespeare or Star Wars half as much as I do, you've already bought this.” —Adam Bertocci, author of Two Gentlemen of Lebowski, writer-director of Brooklyn Force and Run Leia Run, and moderator of TheForce.net
