Out this week: Hyperspace, A Long Time Ago

We got so much last week I hope you weren’t expecting much… But the first two Adventures in Hyperspace books (looking a little too young to be Young Adult) may be in stores now, if they weren’t already. Comic-goers can keep an eye out for a new omnibus of the old Marvel series coming from Dark Horse. Due to the holiday, it should be in stores Thursday.

(Speaking of last week, don’t forget the poll on Fate of the Jedi: Allies.)

StarWars.com confirms Year by Year and Adventures in Hyperspace

Dan Wallace confirmed the book and shared some additional details on Year by Year with us yesterday, but now StarWars.com has an item on the book – including some early cover art and the addition of Gus Lopez as a writer. They also give us a short Q&A on Adventures in Hyperspace, which is being penned by Scholastic regular Ryder Windham.

We’re still waiting on word of Sean William’s The Old Republic novel – as yet, Sue Rostoni is “unable to either confirm nor deny.” (Don’t panic: That’s pretty standard.) Though audio versions have shown up on RandomHouse.com.

Another Scholastic series coming in the summer?

Eddie has spotted Amazon listings for two ‘Adventures in Hyperspace’ books, both dated for June 2010 releases. The first, Fire Ring Race, has a brief description:

Before they met with Luke and Obi-Wan Kenobi on Tatooine, the closest Han Solo and Chewbacca came to galactic politics was a few choice maneuvers around Imperial blockades. Instead, their life was spent rambling through the Outer Rim, flying fast, and taking quick jobs to get from place to place-along with a few close calls along the way!

This new series follows Han and Chewie throughout this time in fully-illustrated, easy-to-read lighthearted adventures, created especially with young readers in mind.

Sounds like the series is going to skew a bit younger than Rebel Force… Come to think of it, when was the last we heard of Rebel Force? June?
