aftermath-placeholderScouring the web for further news on the upcoming Star Wars book titles, everyone is pointing to Jedi-Bibliothek and the synopsis for “Untitled Novel #4” on Barnes & Noble. The synopsis reads…

Journey to The Force Awakens.

The second Death Star is destroyed. The Emperor and his powerful enforcer, Darth Vader, are rumored to be dead. The Galactic Empire is in chaos.

Across the galaxy, some systems celebrate, while in others Imperial factions tighten their grip. Optimism and fear reign side by side.

And while the Rebel Alliance engages the fractured forces of the Empire, a lone Rebel scout uncovers a secret Imperial meeting…

Among the details, the publisher is Random House Publishing Group with a release date of September 4, 2015. Interestingly enough, this particular entry is for the eBook. Note the “Pages: 320” is probably a placeholder at this point. While the book is listed elsewhere, B&N has the most info posted, and is currently the only one with a synopsis, assuming it’s correct. Whatever way it goes, it’s some food for thought.

The headline says it all: more than twenty new Star Wars books. EW and StarWars.com both have articles on this breaking lit news. For the lovers of the written word, this is very good news to hear.

At least 20 new books—from novels for adults and teens to storybooks and stickerbooks for younger kids—will be released this fall to fill the gap between 1983’s Return of the Jedi and this December’s The Force Awakens, EW has learned exclusively.

Those hoping to find out what Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo have been up to for the past three decades will find it first on the page, with Disney Worldwide Publishing and Lucasfilm Press confirming that the titles will be filled with Easter eggs foreshadowing events in J.J. Abrams’ Dec. 18 movie.

This new flood of literature is being called the Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. According to EW, “Many of the books are still being written and edited, so details (including who is writing them) are still under wraps.” But they were able to reveal a couple titles. Star Wars: Aftermath by Del Rey, Star Wars: Journey to the Force Awakens and Star Wars: Journey to the Force Awakens-C-3PO, both by Marvel, and Star Wars: Ships of the Galaxy by Studio Fun International. DK will be getting in the action with Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know.

As part of their Young Adult novels, Disney-Lucasfilm Press will be publishing Moving Target by Cecil Castellucci (Princess Leia adventure), The Weapon of a Jedi by Jason Fry (Luke Skywalker adventure), Lost Stars by Claudia Gray, and Smuggler’s Run by Greg Rucka (a Han Solo adventure).

So, for adult readers, the big news is Aftermath and question of what author will be attached to the project. That said, it’s great to hear so many books are coming out, and hopefully the YA novels will be worth checking out. With Star Wars Celebration Anaheim right around the corner, more news may not be so far away.

Hasbro’s six inch Black Series figures are not above repainting an existing figure for an easy money grab, and the Clone Trooper Sergeant is a good example of that. However, seeing that I have yet to see a regular Clone Trooper in stores, I picked this one up.
