“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

“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

“Doescher’s pseudo-Shakespearean language is absolutely dead-on; this is one of the best-written Shakespeare parodies created for this audience and it is absolutely laugh-out-loud funny for those familiar with both The Bard and Star Wars.” –School Library Journal

“At last, the mother of all mashups is upon us.”–CNET.com

“As Shakespeare would say, you might think, this be madness, yet there is a method in ‘t.”—Newsday
