The big news this was the announcement of a new Star Wars book in The Jedi Path/The Book of Sith line that will focus on the bounty hunters. Called The Bounty Hunter Code: From the File of Boba Fett, this deluxe edition comes in the shape of a briefcase, includes extra goodies and covers info on bounty hunting with notes from the pros like Boba, Dengar, Bossk and more. Idle Hands posted a really nice write up with lots of pictures, plus Amazon has it up for pre-order. Unlike the previous books in this series, Daniel Wallace will be joined by two other authors: Ryder Windham and Jason Fry. The book is certainly in good hands.

LucasBooks editor Jen Heddle has also been tweeting a lot of lit news lately. She’s been reading the manuscripts for Maul: Lockdown by Joe Schreiber and The Star Wars by J.W. Rinzler. Some fun notes about The Star Wars: there’s a pilot character called Mace and Leia has a brother named Windy. Definitely going to be an interesting read. Continue Reading Around the Web…
