Emma Meiko Candon’s novel follows up Visions: “The Duel.” We explore the world of the Ronin and how this story tells a different version of Star Wars.

In this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • How Ronin is a challenge to read, but a rewarding experience,
  • The ways the Force in Ronin differs from our experience in traditional Star Wars stories,
  • Why the Sith and the Jedi aren’t the same types of characters we are used to,
  • The state of the galaxy in Ronin,
  • Samurai and other Japanese influences that shaped the Star Wars story presented in Ronin, and
  • Whether and how this book enhanced our consumption of “The Duel.”
