Eddie found a listing on Amazon.com for a Star Wars Year by Year: A Visual Chronicle, a Dan Wallace hardcover for DK Children. The blurb:

Four decades of Star Wars history come together for the first time in a highly illustrated year-by-year format. Star Wars Year by Year pulls together a vast array of information from the films, comic books, novels, merchandise, and computer games. Star Wars Year by Year provides fans with everything they need to know about the phenomenon that is Star Wars, from the first Star Wars release in 1977 through the most recent plot twists in the animated television show Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

The book is chronologically arranged from 1973 to 2009, and includes stunning chapter openers for each decade, highly illustrated articles for each year that delve into important events in the creation of the movies and comic book art, and fascinating facts about the influence of Star Wars in the real world.

EUbits: Fun with faux castings, looking for ‘Sith,’ Atlas endnotes, Bohnhoff’s alien homework

Let's see, we need someone who can pull off mall hair...Winceworthy. Geekdad’s Lonnie Morgan gets a bit too into reading Star Wars novels and celebrates by inflicting yet another round of fantasy casting upon the internets. (I dislike this kind of thing: They all tend to come out in fail.) There’s also a poll on which (if any) EU series/era you’d like to see come to the screen.

Lost Tribe of the Sith: Sue Rostoni gave a tentative date of February 9th for the next installment of the Fate of the Jedi tie-in ebooks. That’s about a month before the fourth book, Allston’s Backlash, is due out.

EU blogbits: Drew Karpyshyn on Bane #3, TOR; Dan Wallace’s Essential Atlas quotes
