Poll results: Upcoming Star Wars novels

156 readers weighed in, and there’s nothing too surprising here: Stover’s Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor, set not long after Return of the Jedi, took a clear lead with 61 votes; Luceno’s Millennium Falcon, our first look at the GFFA after the events of Legacy of the Force, took second with 43 votes. (Don’t forget these two recently swapped street dates: It’s good news for at least 43 of you.) Traviss’ Republic Commando: Order 66 and Reaves’ Coruscant Nights trilogy dueled it out for third place, ending up with 28 and 24 votes, respectively.

Upcoming release dates: Delayed gratification

Three books have had their release dates pushed back recently. Making room for the mystery book? Clone Wars stuff? (Or both?)

Our Star Wars book schedule has been updated.

Upcoming releases: Mark your calender!

Prepping for the new year, I’ve gone through and updated our Star Wars book schedule with several upcoming release dates. Please note that all these dates are from Random House, and no doubt subject to change. (Write them in pencil.)

Our releases page is always linked on the sidebar, if you ever find yourself in need.

As for you comic fans, even I don’t have the patience to track those crazy ever-changing release dates for more than a few days in advance, but I can throw you a bone – the preview for Dark Times #8, which may or may not come out at the end of the month.

First Look: Sacrifice

Dude, Mara’s gonna die this time. Totally. Either that or we’ll learn she bathes daily in the blood of Mandalorian virgins or something. Perhaps both.

At least, that’s what they want you to think. (And yes, she is confirmed to be Mara.)

In less crazy-fan-theory news, the third Republic Commando book is titled True Colors.
