Suvudu posted an interview with Star Wars editor Shelly Shapiro who talks a little about the future…

What kinds of things can we look forward to in the world of Star Wars fiction?

Shelly Shapiro: We’ve got the excitement of a whole new Star Wars future unfolding as information about the new movies rolls out, and I anticipate that we will be brimming over with ideas for new fiction tying in to the new continuity both of Episodes VII, VIII, and IX, and of the standalone movies that have been announced. Not to mention the new upcoming REBELS animated series. So lots more novels, more series, more original ebooks and stories…

FANgirlblog Interviews Shelly Shapiro

FANgirlblog posted an interview today with Del Rey Editor-at-Large Shelly Shapiro. The interview reveals a lot of things, including the fact that Shelly is a gamer, that no Star Wars manuscript has ever been dead on arrival, Shelly’s thoughts on strong female characters in literature, and some info on the upcoming novels like Crucible.

SS: Crucible will be beyond awesome. After all these years of huge-cast, multi-family Star Wars series, I wanted to focus back on our three original heroes for one more exciting adventure (at least one more!) before they’re so old that the action won’t sustain suspension of disbelief. This seemed like the right time to do it. I haven’t read a word of it yet, because Troy is still writing it, but I can’t wait to read it. I’m looking forward to spending some serious time with Luke, Han, and Leia – the older, wiser ones, who have so much experience to bring to bear to an epic quest. Remember the movie Space Cowboys, where NASA had a problem that only a few of the old-time, retired (if memory serves) astronauts could handle? I loved that movie. That’s what comes to mind when I think of Crucible, except that Crucible will have a lot more action and derring-do!
