|Okay, gang, say it with me: "I had this!"|
I really did have this paperback novelization of STAR WARS, which was published by Ballantine Books and released before the film hit the theaters in 1977. I bought the book as soon as I saw it, recognizing that this was that cool sounding science fiction movie I had read about in the pages of CINEFANTASTIQUE.
I didn't read the book however until after I'd seen the film. I didn't want anything to spoil the experience of seeing the movie for the first time. But of course, there was something else published that I did read that gave me a least part of the film's story. More about that in a future post.
