He has co-edited (with Rich Handley) three books about Star Wars and two about Planet of the Apes. He has contributed to ATB Publishing’s Outside In Boldly Goes, and is an occasional columnist for Blastoff Comics. Joe also serves as the social media coordinator for Discovering Yesterday. When he’s not doing any of that, Joe can be found working at his family’s farm. You can find him on social media at @JFBerenato and at jfberenato.weebly.com.


One thought on “About

  1. Hi Joe,
    Sorry to send a cold message in this way. My name is Dr. William Proctor and I am a lecturer/ researcher at Bournemouth University, UK. I am Director of a five-year project, ‘The Force Re-Awakens: World Star Wars Audiences,’ which is a longitudinal study of Disney and the Star Wars franchise from the perspectives of production, promotion and reception. The first phase of the study is an edited collection I am putting together with leading scholars from around the world. ‘Disney’s Star Wars: Forces of Production, Promotion and Reception’ covers much ground from the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney in 2012 and through to the release of Ep VII in December. I am editing the book and my chapter focuses on the EU. I recently interviewed Matt Wilkins and he informed me about the books you were editing. So I thought I could email you and reach out to see if there was any way we could help each other (or at least be aware of one another’s work). I really look forward to your three books, especially the comics and EU focused volumes. I wonder if I could interview you via email at some point about Star Wars for the research project? I would like to invite you to contribute a chapter, but fear you may have all your thoughts taken up by your current endeavours. If you’d like to chat further, please email me at: bproctor@bournemouth.ac.uk. I have contributed articles to Sequart in the past, but would love the opportunity to do so again — especially about Star Wars given that much of my time is spent in the universe! What a job, but someone’s got to do it!

    I hope to hear from you soon, Joe. May the force (and all of that).

    Best Wishes
