Mere days before the Star Wars fandom begins in annual gathering at a much anticipated Celebration the wonderful people at Star Wars Books released this little beauty.
You may be aware, that Star Wars turns 40 years old this year and to celebrate we are going to be treated to 40 short stories from across the galaxy to give us some differing points of views. These include the "unsung weirdos, heroes and villains" - to me, this just sounds like a lot of fun. (Not so much for canon timelines).
Is it canon? Well...ish. I mean the stories will be fun and offer different perspectives on scenes that we all know and love. Will they differ from scenes we all know and love? Sure, but will it be a fun read? Probably. The line up of authors is huge too with Jason Fry, Christie Golden and Ashely Eckstein popping up!
The best bit? Proceeds go to charity. Well played Star Wars, well played.
