First, a couple of things in stores now: The Star Wars Ultimate Blueprints Collections (DK says it came out yesterday, but I saw it at Borders on Saturday) and Obsessed with Star Wars, a trivia book by our pal Ben Harper. Several CJers have already picked it up and been stumped, so be ready for a challenge.

- Chris Trevas confirms to EU Cantina that Chris Reiff is indeed a second artist on the blueprint collection, not just a figment of Amazon’s imagination.
- And now there are Mad Libs. Great. Can we just have Sir Dan make some instead? Authorized games so boring. (via)
Don’t get too excited, it’s not a novel, but it is something a little unexpected: Star Wars Blueprints: The Ultimate Collection from DK Books. I can’t recall ever seeing Star Wars blueprints published before (at least not in bulk) but I’m not totally shocked to see something like this.
