Star Wars Books posted yesterday on Facebook about some of the free goodies they’ll have available at San Diego Comic Con 2012, Star Wars Celebration VI, and New York Comic Con 2012. They included a picture which shows a pretty cool iron on Mercy Kill patch, and the cover for a sample book.

The 84 page sample book will include excerpts from all of the Star Wars novels released by Del Rey in 2012. According to Del Rey, this includes everything “from Darth Plagueis to Scoundrels” which would be Darth Plagueis, Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse, Lost Tribe of the Sith: The Collected Stories, Scourge, X-Wing: Mercy Kill, The Old Republic: Annihilation, and Scoundrels. Of even greater interest is that it will also include the short stories published in Star Wars Insider magazine during 2011. If you get the chance, be sure to pick one up.

UPDATE: They’ll also be giving away Scoundrels book marks.

Full Blurb for ‘The Old Republic: Annihilation’

Random House has posted the the full blurb for Drew Karpyshyn’s next Star Wars novel, The Old Republic: Annihilation.

The Sith Empire is in flux. The Emperor is missing, presumed dead, and an ambitious Sith lord’s attempt to seize the throne has ended fatally. Still, Darth Karrid, commander of the fearsome Imperial battle cruiser Ascendant Spear, continues her relentless efforts to achieve total Sith domination of the galaxy.

But Karrid’s ruthless determination is more than matched in the steely resolve of Theron Shan, whose unfinished business with the Empire could change the course of the war for good. Though the son of a Jedi master, Theron does not wield the Force—but like his renowned mother, the spirit of rebellion is in his blood. As a top covert agent for the Republic, he struck a crucial blow against the Empire by exposing and destroying a Sith superweapon arsenal—which makes him the ideal operative for a daring and dangerous mission to end Ascendant Spear’s reign of terror.

Joined by hot-headed smuggler Teff’ith, with whom he has an inexplicable bond, and wise Jedi warrior Gnost-Dural, Darth Karrid’s former master, Theron must match wits and weapons with a battle-tested crew of the most cold-blooded dark side disciples. But time is brutally short. And if they don’t seize their one chance to succeed, they will surely have countless opportunities to die.
