While Random House has been very quiet, Becker & Mayer has made some new book reveals in their latest catalog.

Star Wars: Imperial Handbook: A Commander’s Guide (Deluxe Edition)
by Daniel Wallace

As the Imperial Empire expands, high-ranking officials from each branch of the Imperial Military have set down tactical guidelines and procedures for all newly ascending commanders. Set in-universe, this compendium of ordinance, mission reports, and Imperial philosophy was intercepted by members of the Rebel Alliance, some of whom also left commentary scribbled in the margins. Housed in a deluxe case that opens with lights and sounds, this never-before-seen Imperial Handbook is perfect for Star Wars fans–no matter which side of the Civil War they’re on.

Suvudu has posted an interview with Book of Sith author Daniel Wallace that’s worth a look.

After writing this book, do you have a favorite Sith Lord?

Daniel Wallace: The in-universe writers of Book of Sith are the ancient sorceress Sorzus Syn, the battlefield tactician Darth Malgus, the stoic warrior Darth Bane, the wicked shaman Mother Talzin, the mad scientist Darth Plagueis, and Emperor Palpatine himself. I needed to find a distinct voice for each one of these authors, and the one I got the most kick out of writing was Plagueis. He’s a Sith Lord dedicated to the pursuit of science, and it was a lot of fun to explore how much of the Force is knowable and how much lies in the realm of mysticism and the supernatural.
