Star Wars Day!

May the fourth .... ok you've heard it before. Regardless there is big excitement in the Star Wars Universe with the recent cast announcement for Episode 7. So what's new in the world of Star Wars fiction?

Honor Among Thieves by James S.A. Corey
Razor's Edge by Martha Wells
Kenobi by John Jackson Miller

Crucible by Troy Denning
Into the Void by Tim Lebbon
Star Wars. Scoundrels by Timothy Zahn ht

and, my new personal favourite:

William Shakespeare's The Empire Striketh Back by Ian Doescher 

"The saga that began with the interstellar best seller William Shakespeare's Star Wars continues with this merry reimagining of George Lucas's enduring classic The Empire Strikes Back. Many a fortnight have passed since the destruction of the Death Star. Young Luke Skywalker and his friends have taken refuge on the ice planet of Hoth, where the evil Darth Vader has hatched a cold-blooded plan to capture them. Only with the help of a little green Jedi Master—and a swaggering rascal named Lando Calrissian—can our heroes escape the Empire's wrath. And only then will Lord Vader learn how sharper than a tauntaun's tooth it is to have a Jedi child. What light through Yoda's window breaks? Methinks you'll find out in the pages of The Empire Striketh Back!" publisher
