A new Indiana Jones novel in 2009!

Cheers to my good buddy over at the Geek Brunch podcast Heath for putting me onto this news. It seems that Indiana Jones is making a return in book form. Indiana Jones and the Army of the Dead will hit the book in 2009. Here’s the blub from the StarWars.com website.

There’s no rest for the weary treasure hunter, but that’s how Indiana Jones likes it. Fresh from spying for the Allies in the thick of World War II Germany, the globe-trotting archaeologist doesn’t need much persuading to join his cohort “Mac” McHale in searching for one of the most coveted of artifacts: the fabled black pearl known as the Heart of Darkness. But the partners in adventure are not alone on their foray into the mysterious jungles of Haiti. German and Japanese agents are in hot pursuit, determined to possess the ebony artifact — and its secrets — for their own sinister purposes. And shadowing them all is an infamous voodoo priest, with powers of both diabolical science and black magic at his command.

On a treacherous odyssey across the Island of the Dead, where the legend of zombi looms large, spiders, snakes, and booby-traps will prove the least of Indy’s challenges. And capturing the prize will be child’s play compared with confronting an enemy unlike any other, whose numbers are legion and nearly impossible to kill — because they’re already dead…

The Indiana Jones adventure continues with a new, original tale from bestselling author Steve Perry. It will be available from Del Rey Books in May 2009.

 

Well seeing as it’s my birthday in May I know that’s one thing that will definitely be on my Birthday list (by the way look out for my full and very expensive birthday list coming soon).
