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

Book News

  • The Making of Star Wars: The Force Awakens by J.W. Rinzler now has a entry up on edelweiss. The release date is set for October 25, 2016 at 368 pages and 500 color illustrations (10.4 in H | 11.3 in W) from Abrams publishing.

The Making of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the ultimate eyewitness account of the film’s complete production history—the fantastic work of the conceptual art team, the commitment to creating a new story in a saga that is loved around the world, J. J. Abrams’s helming of the massive production, and the post-production finesse of Industrial Light & Magic and Skywalker Sound—with exclusive reflections from George Lucas, Kathleen Kennedy, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher, as well as Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, and many others.

A must-have for Star Wars fans, this authorized, all-access book—perhaps the most comprehensive documentation of an in-progress production ever written—will be an indispensable work for all movie fans and devotees of popular culture.

  • Iron Druid Chronicles fans can stop by Kevin Hearne‘s store and use the discount code WOOHOO to get two hardcovers and a digital audiobook for just $18 (Staked, Shattered and “Two Tales of the Iron Druid Chronicles”).
