Updating the Encyclopedia

Word comes from the starwars.com boards that there’s a new Star Wars Encyclopedia in the works. The last one came out in 1998 – before even TPM! Sue Rostoni says:

It’s true, there is a new Encyclopedia in the works. A volume that will update ongoing entries. Stuff that hasn’t changed (i.e., “hydrospanner”) won’t be duplicated in this second volume. A pub date hasn’t been set in duracrete yet, but we’re looking at Fall 2008 as a possible release time. The format will be the same as the first volume, to keep it as a “set.” That’s about all that’s been discussed at this point.

Also, the Coruscant Nights trilogy is being pushed back to 2008. Better than a year between each volume for a paperback trilogy, I guess.

A Death Star is born

Out of nowhere today comes the news that Steve Perry and Michael Reaves (MedStar Duology) have signed on to write a novel about “the convoluted history of the Death Star and the personalities that led to its creation.” It’s set between ROTS and ANH.

They’re going to need the industrial-strength spackle for this one: Can AOTC and KJA be reconciled? We’ll find out in 2007…
