Death Troopers is the first real horror story to come out of the Star Wars Universe. This will be a novel that is coming right out of Lucasfilm and it will be published October 27th 2009 by DelRay Books. The book was written by Joe Schreiber and here is a description:

From the first appearance of Darth Vader in the groundbreaking movie Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Star Wars fans have known what terror feels like -- and they loved it. But never before has Star Wars publishing ventured into the unknown territory of true horror . . . until now.

When the Imperial prison barge Purge breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope seems to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting, derelict and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back -- bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours, nearly all aboard the Purge will die. And death is only the beginning.

For aboard the Star Destroyer, amid its vast creaking emptiness that isn't really empty at all. For the dead are rising, soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry.

Zombie Stormtroopers!!!! Awesome!

The publishing group behind the movie held a contest for fans to see who could come up with the scariest book trailer. Here are some of the videos, and they're pretty damn good. To vote for your favorite Click Here.
