  • Catalyst by James Luceno is now available in paperback. Worth noting, the paperback edition includes the short story “The Voice of the Empire” by Murr Lafferty (first appeared in Star Wars Insider #170).
  • Pawn: A Chronicle of the Sibyl’s War by Timothy Zahn came out this week. So if you enjoyed Thrawn and are looking for some more Zahn books, you might want to try this one out.
