Star Wars, by Shakespeare -- Verily, A New Hope!


Vader:
"Thou speakest well, my stormtrooper, and yet
Not well upon my ear the message falls...
My patience runneth quickly out much like
The sands across the dunes of Tatooine.
So tell me, else thou diest quick: where shall
We find transmissions thou didst intercept?..."

Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise knight and an evil lord, of a beautiful princess held captive, and a young hero coming of age....

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.

Perplexus - cool 3D maze. "Like a video game without the electronics."

It may look like a small child's toy, but is anything but. Perplexus is a 3D maze where players maneuver a small marble around challenging barriers inside a transparent sphere. You work with gravity to carefully shift, flip, and twist the sphere to guide the marble. One blogger says, "We’ve found the puzzle to be extremely addictive to anyone who gets started. Because it’s like a 3D video game without the electronics, the very physical nature of playing — turning it this way and that — is very satisfying. In addition, the maze is like a sculpture, [and] the design of the route is geekily brilliant." Amazon, $19.59
