Timothy Zahn posted an update on his Facebook page with some news from Shell Shapiro.

It is now probable that next year will *not* see a special edition of DFR. However, she does leave open the possibility that if there’s a groundswell of sales on the Heir 20th, it’s *possible* that the Higher-Ups at Del Rey will reverse that decision.

So the bad news is that there’s no plans for a 20th Anniversary Edition of Dark Force Rising. The good news is: you can do something about. If you haven’t bought the 20th Anniversary Edition of Heir to the Empire, now is the time.

Star Wars Books announced yesterday on Facebook that they will be conducting a live Facebook chat with Star Wars author Timothy Zahn on September 28 at 3:00 PM EDT (2:00 PM CDT). This chat will be focusing on Heir to the Empire 20th Anniversary Edition and Choices of One.

As usual the live chat will be conducted on Star Wars Books Facebook page. A new post will be created for the live chat shortly before the start time and the live chats generally last about an hour. The Facebook chats are conducted via comments and the authors do their best to answer all the questions the fans post. Remember to always put *** spoiler *** before any questions that might spoil something from recently released novels. Also keep in mind that typically several questions will be asked at once, so try and give Mr. Zahn some time to reply to the questions before asking new ones. The refresh button is your friend.

Suvudu posted an interview this morning with Betsy Mitchell, the editor of Timothy Zahn’s Heir to the Empire, one of the co-contributor to the annotations in Heir to the Empire 20th Anniversary Edition, and the Editor in Chief at Del Rey books. In the interview, Betsy talks briefly about her attendance at Dragon*Con, choosing tie-in writers, Mara Jade, and her favorite Star Wars film. Unfortunately there’s no solid word or whether we’ll see an annotated version of Dark Force Rising yet.

SS: You are the Editor in Chief of Del Rey books, privy to Jedi secrets. Will the sequels to Heir to the Empire also receive the annotated and hardcover treatment?

BM: The Jedi Council tells me that if there’s a big enough demand for the anniversary edition of HEIR TO THE EMPIRE, we’d love to follow up with the others.

You can read the full interview here.
