Last Minute Gift Ideas

santa-yodaWith the holidays upon us, everyone is scrambling to get their gift shopping done. For those looking for some quick ideas for those Star Wars and sci-fi fans in your life, we’ve got some ideas that just might help.


Star Wars Books

This year has been a little light on Star Wars books with the change from the Expanded Universe to Legends. Maul: Lockdown by Joe Schreiber (5/5) and Honor Among Thieves by James S.A. Corey (5/5) both came out this year, however both fall  into the Legends category. For some fans, that makes a difference.

For those sticking only to canon, there’s A New Dawn by John Jackson Miller (5/5) and Tarkin by James Luceno (4/5). Those two mark the first Star Wars books considered official canon (ie. on par with the movies themselves).

They’re all good stories. Maul: Lockdown is a action packed, suspenseful, prison-escape type story focusing on Darth Maul. Honor Among Thieves focuses on Han Solo and brand new female character as they go on a mission for the rebellion. A New Dawn ties-in with the Star Wars Rebels tv show, and Tarkin focuses entirely on Grand Moff Tarkin from the first Star Wars movie, A New Hope. Continue Reading Last Minute Gift Ideas…
