The man who created the Witches of Dathomir and married off Han Solo and Princess Leia, Dave Wolverton (now Farland), is in need of some help.
His teenage son, Ben Wolverton, got into a longboarding accident and is in a coma.
The family will need help with medical expenses and there are two ways you can help. The family has asked for a “book bomb” today.
On Wednesday, we will have the book bomb. If you haven’t yet purchased Nightingale or Million Dollar Outlines, please consider doing so on Wednesday. If you have already purchased them, you can donate money to Ben and his family here.
I purchased the outlining book and will most likely be making a direct donation as well.
While Dave might not be the most prolific of the Star Wars authors, his contribution to the Expanded Universe was significant. And I must say, on a personal note, I’ve sat side-by-side with him at book signings (he’s also in Utah) and spending hours with him signing books I can attest that he’s one of the nicest people I’ve ever met.
This is a terrible thing that happened and the least the Star Wars community can do is rally around him and buy a book.
