Rusty Miller's "The Jedi Master's Quizbook" 35 Years Old Today!

Do you believe that today is the 35th anniversary of the publication of Rusty Miller’s The Jedi Master’s Quizbook? It was published October 12, 1982. Many of you out there remember this book coming out like it was yesterday, as well as his appearances on television and in People magazine. Amazon still has the book listed. It’s a must-have for all Star Wars fans, especially those who love the Original Trilogy.

    The Star Wars In Character podcast has been using this book for their trivia segment lately, and it’s hilarious. Many of the questions are based on the novelizations instead of the movies, so if you haven’t read the books lately you’ll never know the answers to the questions. Many of the questions and/or answers are terribly written, so even if you are very familiar with both the movies and the books, you still won’t get them right. 🙂

    • True, but I don’t think any of us could say we were a published author at 12 years old either.

      I love the SWIC podcast. Hands down the funniest Star Wars podcast out there. I’ve been to both of their Celebration bowling parties and they’re super-nice guys (and gal).

    • The novelizations were canon before the Di$ney regime de-canonized them.

      • RumSleg

        Whether they’re canon or not is irrelevant. My only point was, questions based on trivia from the book make the trivia much harder than you’d expect a Star Wars trivia book to be.

  • Rusty Miller is the third most famous Rusty I can think of. The Tigers outfielder is the most famous:

    The Jedi Master’s Quizbook…..I am unsure of how many hours were spent by memorizing each and every detail of this book. I recall going so far as to beginning to create an additional volume for myself (utilizing folded notebook paper and a stapler…clever I know) when Return Of The Jedi was released. Good times.

      I did my own quiz book at the time as well. I had a whopping 200 question quiz and used various Star Wars decals for the cover. I typed it all out, blast from the past. Pretty sure I had a journal of the Whills question in there too.

      • I wrote my own quizbook too! LOL.

        • Indiana Skywalker

          Do you still have yours? If I can find mine, I will post a photo of it here.

          • Gosh, it’s somewhere. I really have no idea where it is at the moment.

      • Indiana Skywalker

        I used the old “puffy” stickers as graphics for the interior of the book. I am still fascinated by them and frequently purchase them for my collection.

  • Jimmy Griffin

    I am thankful for the embarrassment of riches that we have now; but this is a welcome reminder of a much simpler time in our fandom.

  • Man, Even in the 80’s we got better art on a freaking quiz book than theatrical posters of today.

  • OfWolfandMan

    What a great time it was, B. Dalton and Waldenbooks, at the mall on a Saturday in 1980-something. Star Wars is so diluted now. I still have the People magazine with his article.

    • He introduced a few new “Return Of The Jedi” questions in that article before the film was released, right?

      • OfWolfandMan

        I think there may have been some new questions, but not sure.
        The mag is in a box. I’ll have to dig it out.

    • shane

      Han Solo at Stars End and Han Solo and the lost Legacy were some of the first novels I ever read. I remember that vividly.

      • OfWolfandMan

        Those and Splinter of the Mind’s Eye were always on the shelves. But I never read them.
