Jedi Bibliothek discovered release dates for Aftermath: Empire’s End by Chuck Wendig (January 17, 2017) and The Force Awakens novelization by Alan Dean Foster in paperback. (September 27.)

The novelization will include two short stories: Foster’s ‘Bait’ from the Star Wars Insider, and Delilah S. Dawson’s ‘The Perfect Weapon,’ which has thus far only been available as an eBook. These dates are fairly far off, so there may be some slight adjustments over time. Our book release schedule has been updated.

→ Remember that West End Games stylebook Pablo shared on Twitter a few weeks back? Well, io9 got hold of a complete copy.

12 revelations from Before the Awakening, in case anyone hasn’t read that one yet.

What happens in the books is another. How they connect and interact is something I’m really eager to see.

EUbits: Fire and ice and rage, and that’s just Randy Stradley

The Star Wars comic - preview detail Rinzler MayhewComics. Remember how Entertainment Weekly was supposed to break some ‘interesting’ Star Wars news? And then we heard it out of WonderCon instead? Well, their article on The Star Wars has finally shown up… And Dark Horse’s Randy Stradley is, let’s say, less than impressed with the end result.

There are two other recent, less wrath-inducing interviews with Stradley on Newsarama and Jedi Journals.

The blogside. Two very different takes on the EU/EpVII issue: Newsarama’s Lucas Siegel takes a thoughtful approach, while io9’s Rob Bricken fans the angry paranoia flames. In another direction, Bria’s Waru Express has reached the New Jedi Order.

Interviews. EUCantina talks to Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff.

Flashback. Blogger Rologutwein is creating Star Wars roleplaying modules – based on other films – in the style of the old West End Games. Here’s his covers, and one of the interiors.

Randomly… Tosche Station’s Emily has a recipe for Corellian ryshcate.

Catching up with Labor Day weekend

George Lucas is becoming ‘increasingly involved’ with the Clone Wars animated series. Good? Bad? Gungan? Only time will tell! In other CW news, Disney really wants the broadcast rights.
