Here are some more updates on SW books due out soon:
Star Wars : Fate of the Jedi: Omen [Christie Golden] June 2009 (hardcover)
Star Wars : Adventures: Han Solo and the Hollow Moon of Khorya [forgot the authors] May 2009 (paperback)
Rebel Force #3: Firefight [Alexander S. Star Wars Staff] May 2009 (paperback)
The Han Solo one sounds quite a lot like the Brian Daley series by its title; hope it can be even 7/12 as good as it was. :stats: The Rebel Force cover looks pretty cool, and now it has its subtitle.
Fate of the Jedi might be one I'll read, but I'm sorry to say I've lost interest and will pick and choose the SW books I'll read now.
Here's an updated list (LISTS... ) of some upcoming SW books and stuff:
SW: 501st, An Imperial Commando Novel (K. Traviss, 10/27)
SW: The Complete Vader (R. Windham, 10/27)
SW: Lego Visual Dictionary (9/21)
Art of SW: Clone Wars (9/1, Special Edition is out earlier on 7/15?)
SW: Frames (9/1... $5,500?!? :confused: )
SW: Death Troopers [on CD?] (J. Schrieber, 10/13)
SW: Super Collectible Wishbook (G.T. Charlton, 8/29)
The Force Unleashed paperback (S. Williams, 8/25)
Star Wars [analysis of it] (W. Brooker, 8/18)
SW: Essential Atlas (J. Fry/D.Wallace, 8/18)
Fate of the Jedi: Abyss (T. Denning, 8/18)
SW Comics [looks like mainly Dark Horse] (7/22)
SW: CW Ultimate Battles (7/20)
various SW calendars (7/1)
Fate of the Jedi: Omen (C. Golden, 6/23)
Thanks for the list, Bel.
I can't wait for Traviss' Imperial Commando book. The Lego dictionary intrigues me. My girlfriend's sons have SW Legos and I enjoy creating buildings/dioramas with them.
SW Frames is this giant, ridiculous, ostentations thing. It's actually 6 books, one for each film, it's got this huge wooden case with a bronze (or faux) medallion on either side, Vader on 1, Yoda on the other. Each image in the books is a frame from the film specifically chosen by George Lucas himself, and it comes with a numbered "bookplate" signed by him (if the fat flanneled one had numbered each one from 1 to 500, now that would be impressive :p). Each book apparently weighs 23 pounds. IMO, it's ridiculous: http://www.sideshowtoy.com/?page_id=...rce=082808news
The cool thing though is if you buy it, you get a free $200 worth of Sideshow merchandise in the form of 4k Sideshow rewards points.
I would say it doesn't count as EU since each frame is from the film.
True, that it's not Expanded Universe; I just included it becau$e of it$ "affordable" price.
It's hard being a billionaire, I guess.
More updates of books due out soon:
Darth Bane: Dynasty of (Drew Karpyshan) 12/8
Millenium Falcon (paperback) 11/24
SW: Clone Wars Season 1 Episode Guide (Jason Fry) 10/29
Republic Commando: 501st (Karen Traviss) 10/27
Complete Vader (Ryder Windham) 10/27
SW: Death Troopers (on CD?) 10/13
Lego SW Visual Dictionary 10/5
SW Clone Wars Heroes Pop-Up Book (Rob Valois) 9/17
Secret Missions #1: Breakout Squad (Ryder Windham) 9/2009
Art of SW Clone Wars 9/2009
Rebel Force #4: Firefight (Alex Wheeler) 9/1
SW: Clone Wars Blast Them (interactive book?) 9/1
Force Unleashed (paperback) 8/2009
These dates often become unreliable, so don't kill the messenger if I turn out to be wrong!
And now there's even more, that might be giants...

Guess I just needed to expand my search dates, or I'd have found these sooner. However, always in motion, the future is... I'm looking forward to some (Making of ESB, Carrie Fisher's whatever, Year By Year, some non-FOTJ novels, etc.).
Star Wars zombies? I think it's official: "Everybody out of the pool." I'll bet they don't even have the presence of mind to involve Senior Anthropologist Hoole and the Arranda brats.
