‘Kenobi’ gets a Hardcover

Star Wars author John Jackson Miller has posted some info about the just revealed Kenobi novel on his website Farawaypress. John revealed that it will be a hardcover with a late 2013 release.

Kenobi is a sweeping story that’s part epic western, part high-stakes drama, part romance — but it’s all Star Wars, taking place in the early days of Obi-Wan’s exile to Tatooine. I shouldn’t expand too much beyond what Random House said on its panel and Facebook page, but I can say this. I’ve been working on this concept for years — I’ll talk more about that process later on — and the basics are pretty simple. The greatest hero in the galaxy faces his toughest challenge yet: He must stop being Obi-Wan — and become Crazy Old Ben.
