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

Book News

  • io9 has a look at the Industrial Light & Magic Presents: Making Solo: A Star Wars Story book.
  • In sad news, Vonda N. McIntyre, the author of the Star Wars Legends novel The Crystal Star, has passed away. Vonda did much more than create one of the most controversial Star Wars villains, Waru, she was also the third woman to win a Hugo Award, she wrote the first original Star Trek novel for the Pocket Books line, and she came up with Sulu and Uhura’s first names. She will be missed, but her books shall live on.
  • I missed this but Jedi Bibliotheck spotted it back in early March, but it looks like they’re doing a Haynes manual for the TIE Fighter. It’s set for an October release.

Celebration News

  • The lotteries have been extended to April 8th so if you haven entered yet there is still time.
  • They’ve revealed more Celebration merchandise on the official site.
  • The collecting sites will have a six piece Celebration patch set you can collect.
  • Here’s a look at all the Star Tots which will be available.
  • Del Rey has revealed their author signing times, and which authors will be at the From A Certain Point of View mega signing. DK will also have signings for its authors. Jason Fry posted his schedule here.
  • Dave Dorman is working on a Rogue One painting he hopes to have done for Celebration. There will not be prints of it available. However, Dave is supplying the artwork for the SWCC VIP package limited edition print, which looks gorgeous.
