- Events: StarWars.com has the schedule of Star Wars events (and TFN has LucasArts) but since there’s so much going on, best to check the full schedule as well.

- Book and comic guests: Writers Karen Traviss, Ryder Windham, Jeremy Barlow and Dan Wallace will be on hand, while artists include Chris Trevas, Chris Reiff and Tommy Lee Edwards, Travis Charest, Adam Hughes, Dustin Weaver, Dan Parsons and Matthew and Shaw Fillbach will be among the those signing. TFN scedules for the DK, Del Rey, and Dark Horse booths, while you can get Traviss’ event schedule (and subsequent book tour) on her website.

There’s plenty going on, but particularly of note:
8:30-10:00 Star Wars Fan Film Awards
It’s the galaxy-spanning return of a Comic-Con favorite! The Star Wars Fan Film Awards come back to Ballroom 20 as the Thursday night big event. Ballroom 20
Speaking of, voting on the Fan Movie Challenge finalists ends on Thursday. There’s also a Random House panel at 6:00, but with Betsy Mitchell the only familiar name present, I suspect they’ll save any Star Wars publishing news for a dedicated panel. (via)
UPDATE: Or not. Here’s what Sue Rostoni had to say about on the subject:
There will be a panel dedicated to The Clone Wars program, but not one on general fiction. Frank Parisi (LFL editor) and Carol Roeder (LFL director of publishing) will be on the panel along with Leland Chee and Henry Gilroy (writer of Dark Horse Clone Wars comics) and others. Pablo will moderate. I won’t be there this year.

Matthew Wood, Dermot Crowley, Jerome Blake and Amy Allen are among the latest guests for Celebration IV.
Meanwhile, time is running out to enter the Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge. Sorry LFL – the term is still ‘fanfilms’ to me!
And don’t forget that this is the last day to pre-register for Celebration!

Yes, fan fiction. The fan film awards also get a name change – it’s now the Fan Movie Challenge Awards, and Spike TV is on board to give the results a wider audience. As in previous years, it all comes to a head at Celebration.

The Awards were presented at Comic Con last night. Shane Felux’s Pitching Lucas won both George Lucas Selects and the Audience Choice Award – a first, I think. Other winners include Michael Q. Yowhan’s Memoirs of a Padawan, Brian Silva’s Sith’d, and William Grammer’s Blue Milk.
