The Indiana Jones Novels
The further non-filmic adventures of Indy

submit to reddit

If you think that Indiana Jones puts his feet up and teaches the odd archaeology class to adoring students when not appearing in movies, then you would be distinctly wrong. Since Indy first cracked his whip, there have been numerous novels published extending the adventures of our hero. Though not involving story input from George Lucas, the official books - written by Rob MacGregor, Max McCoy and Martin Caidin - often featured cameos by characters from the series. They also generally featured Indy falling for some form of foreign maiden, who would rarely last more than one book. Though hardly required reading for fans, the books are at least worth glancing at for the fact that each of them has a cover designed by the legend that is Drew Struzan.

The Indiana Jones Novels | Indiana Jones And The Peril At Delphi
Indiana Jones And The Peril At Delphi

Written by: Rob MacGregor

This first spin-off novel may cause some excitement to fans of the current TV show Battlestar Galactica since it concerns the order of Pythia. But there are no spaceships or prophesying presidents here, since the novel tells of an earthquake at the ruins of Delphi, a site considered the centre of the world by the Greeks and home of the Delphic oracle. A comely archaeology professor, Dorian Belecamus, plans to become the Oracle of Delphi by finding a mystic stone that will help her take control of her country. She attempts to entice Indy to help using her womanly charms, the saucy wench.

1 Crystal Skulls (and what you left out)
If memory serves the Crystal Skull actually makes an appearance in all Max McCoy's novels, even though it's not the "MacGuffin" of any. Indy has a disturbing vision with it and leaves it there. I think it involved CGI prairie dogs... Oh, and you missed out the most recent novel: Indiana Jones and the Army of the Dead, featuring voodoo, zombies, and (rather unnecessarily) Mac. There was also another Rob McGregor novel, Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings, that tied in to the videogame, but sadly was cancelled even though it's complete. I wish you guys had covered the main videogames. Fate of Atlantis in particular should've been the fourth film. More

2 why George why?
most of these sound like they would have been better than KOTCS. Grrrrr I hate that film so much... Actually, that's not true: most of these sound really dumb, but the Struzan covers are awesome. More
