NEW RELEASE . . .

Thursday 2nd April
[] []
[] Thrawn: Treason
Trade Paperback Novel by Timothy Zahn
Arrow ( UK )

This story occurs occurs approximately 1 year before Episode IV: A New Hope:
“If I were to serve the Empire, you would command my allegiance.”

Such was the promise Grand Admiral Thrawn made to Emperor Palpatine at their first meeting. Since then, Thrawn has been one of the Empire’s most effective instruments, pursuing its enemies to the very edges of the known galaxy. But as keen a weapon as Thrawn has become, the Emperor dreams of something far more destructive.
Now, as Thrawn’s TIE defender program is halted in favor of Director Krennic’s secret Death Star project, he realizes that the balance of power in the Empire is measured by more than just military acumen or tactical efficiency. Even the greatest intellect can hardly compete with the power to annihilate entire planets...

UPDATE . . .

Thursday 26th March
[] []
[]

Star Wars Books & Comics and its related social media pages on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr is a one-person operation. Created in 2001 and maintained by myself, a life-long Star Wars books and comics fan, I have thoroughly enjoyed running these pages and interacting with fellow fans. However, present circumstances requiring me to home school two young children and work evenings as a supermarket delivery driver have unfortunately dramatically reduced the amount of time I am able to spend keeping all these outlets regularly updated. Therefore I have reluctantly decided to focus priority on maintaining and updating the following pages only (assuming that publishers and their distributors will still be operational during this global crisis):

1]. On Star Wars Books & Comics: I will keep the 2020 Release Archive up-to-date with all new releases. This page will become the site's homepage from end of March. I will also maintain both US & UK Release Schedules.

2]. On Twitter: where possible, all new releases will continue to be announced.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the visitors to Star Wars Books & Comics and all my followers on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr for their support over the last two decades.

During these difficult and uncertain times I urge you to take care of yourselves, your families, your friends, and your community by following your Government's advice.

May The Force Be With You.
