Del Rey shuffles release dates for Heir to the Jedi, Lords of the Sith

Del Rey has slightly pushed back the release dates for two 2015 book releases. Kevin Hearne’s Heir to the Jedi will now be out February 17 instead of January 13, while Paul Kemp’s Lords of the Sith is set for April 21 instead of March.

Our book release schedule has been updated.

More new Star Wars novels from Del Rey: Tarkin, Heir to the Jedi and Lords of the Sith

hearne-luke-heirEarlier today, we had our first official statement on the Expanded Universe’s place in the light of the new films. Now, we get more on the novels going forward. After John Jackson Miller’s A New Dawn (September 2,) we’re getting Tarkin by James Luceno (November 4) and…

Heir to the Jedi by Kevin Hearne (January) was originally announced as part of the loose Empire and Rebellion trilogy pre-Disney… They dropped the subtitle on Honor Among Thieves, but that and Razor’s Edge both fall under Legends with the rest of the old EU, per Lucasfilm editor Jennifer Heddle. In any case, this book is a first-person Luke Skywalker story. (First person? I’m suddenly a lot less excited, but whatever, I’ll read it.)

Lords of the Sith by Paul S. Kemp (March) features Palpatine and Vader “stranded in the middle of insurgent action on an inhospitable planet, they must rely solely on each other, the Force, and their awesome martial skills to prevail.” And Kemp says the book also features “a character who I’m not allowed to name just yet, but who appeared in The Clone Wars animated series.” Subtle!

These are being announced by both Disney Publishing and Random House… Curious, no?
