The wait is over. Thrawn by Timothy Zahn is out today in hardcover, digital and audiobook versions. There are also several different versions of the hardcover including the normal cover (as pictured left), there is the Barnes & Noble edition (which has a black cover), and there’s an edition exclusive to Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017. You can find out more about the different versions here. Note that the content is the same for all three, except the B&N version has a pull out poster, and the Celebration edition has printed end pages with images of the Chimera and includes a special collectible Thrawn pin.

In this definitive novel, readers will follow Thrawn’s rise to power—uncovering the events that created one of the most iconic villains in Star Wars history.

One of the most cunning and ruthless warriors in the history of the Galactic Empire, Grand Admiral Thrawn is also one of the most captivating characters in the Star Wars universe, from his introduction in bestselling author Timothy Zahn’s classic Heir to the Empire through his continuing adventures in Dark Force Rising,The Last Command, and beyond. But Thrawn’s origins and the story of his rise in the Imperial ranks have remained mysterious. Now, in Star Wars: Thrawn, Timothy Zahn chronicles the fateful events that launched the blue-skinned, red-eyed master of military strategy and lethal warfare into the highest realms of power—and infamy.

April Fool’s: New Bor Gullet Novel Announced

Del Rey has just revealed the cover and title for the next Rogue One tie-in novel: Bor Gullet Strikes Back! The book will be written by New York Times bestselling author John Jackson Miller with a 2017 Fall release. The full synopsis will be revealed at Star Wars Celebration, but they have released a short description to give fans an idea of what to expect.

After narrowly escaping the Death Star’s attack on Jedha City, Saw Gerrera’s chief enforcer, Bor Gullet, has taken on the mantle of leading the survivors of Saw’s rebel cell. Backed by ferocious warriors like Moroff the merciless, the terrifying Edrio Two Tubes and the wicked Weeteef, they’re ready to strike back at the Empire to avenge the deaths of their brethren. But what they don’t realize is that the Empire is already on the hunt and they’ve enlisted the help of Inferno Squadron.

As revealed in the description from StarWars.com, this will be a direct follow-up novel to Christie Golden’s Inferno Squadron, which will be following the Imperial’s side of things. This also marks the first duology of the new canon which they’re calling Rogue Cells. With Bor Gullet Gullet hype being at an all time high right now, this announcement makes a lot of sense and is a perfect fit in the timeline.

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • This one is beyond Star Wars, but written by Star Wars authors. Kevin Hearne and Delilah S. Dawson will be teaming up to write a book called Kill The Farm Boy which will be published by Del Rey. It’s quite the tongue and cheek title, and given the authors involved, this one will probably be a lot of fun. Here’s the project in Kevin’s own words…

About a year ago my buddy Delilah S. Dawson and I were killing an hour in the Dallas airport and we came up with an idea for messing with fantasy tropes in a humorous fashion. KILL THE FARM BOY was born. Had to file it away for a while and enjoy some tacos. But a couple months ago, because of, you know, THE WORLD, we needed something lighthearted to work on as therapy. So we started writing a proposal. We outlined the book and wrote five sample chapters that made us both laugh. We also came up with ideas for a couple more books.

And what do you know? Del Rey thought they were funny too and said we can go ahead and write them! So that’s coming, friends. KILL THE FARM BOY will be out next year. Delilah and I are taking turns writing chapters while we also work on our solo projects.

I think y’all are going to dig it. We’re laughing out loud as we do this.

  • In Star Wars book news, Amazon now has a look at the cover for Star Wars: On the Frontlines by Daniel Wallace.
  • Author Paul S. Kemp has posted his short story “Continuum” online for free. This story connects Shadowstorm and Shadowrealm., books two and three of The Twilight War.
