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

Book News

  • Del Rey has been posting special “social cards” for From A Certain Point of View. They’re neat little image teasers with snippets from the book. There is one for each story.
  • We now have a release date for Star Wars: The Last Jedi novelization by Jason Fry. According to edelweiss it will be released on March 6, 2018. The hardcover will also be 304 pages (as of the current listing). The three month delay has some speculating that there will be a significant revelation/twist in the movie warranty the extra bit of secrecy.

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

Book News

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

  • 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.
  • I might have missed this if it was announced at Star Wars Celebration, but Forces of Destiny will be getting some books, three of which might be worthy enough for adults to check out.

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.
