Upcoming: Star Wars: Heir To The Empire 20th Anniversary Edition! (AKA everyone's fave SW book)

I’ll probably catch some heat for this admission…especially considering all the Star Wars EU books I HAVE read…but I have never read fan-favourite, critic-favourite, Timothy Zahn-penned, it happens right after Return of the Jedi, HEIR TO THE EMPIRE, nor its two sequels DARK FORCE RISING and THE LAST COMMAND. Nope. Never did it. I don’t have a reason really, except perhaps that my reading skills weren’t up to snuff enough in 1991 to stomach of a whole trilogy of YA/adult novels at the tender age of fourteen.

Thankfully, Lucasfilm and Del Ray come along 20 years later and provide me with a shiny, sparkly, gorgeously covered Anniversary Edition. I love Limited and Anniversary Editions. The
y are always awesome.

The book, for those who are curious, is set to drop in June of this year and features the cover below. I look forward to finally reading this series and seeing what the fuss is about.


  1. When I first heard about this thing last year, I thought it was going to be a hardcover omnibus of the entire trilogy, which would have been wicked sweet. But this way they get to sell three books, I suppose.

    And for the record, Stover writes my favorite SW books. :p

  2. I loved this novel when I first read it. The whole series is good, and Kevin J Anderson's Jedi Academy series compliments/follows it brilliantly.
    Can't wait for an excuse to read this again.
