Meanwhile, Del Rey has posted two new pieces of art from the book on their Star Wars Facebook page, including the one at right, a Republic weapons factory from The Clone Wars era.
Del Rey’s Erich Schoeneweiss annouced that the street date of Troy Denning’s Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse – the final book in the series – has moved from April 3 to March 13. I normally don’t make stand-alone schedule posts for a single book, but with the gap between the last book and Apocalypse so large, even a 3-week date change can make a splash. (At least on a day when I’ve already posted an EUbits.)
Street date shuffle. The release of James Luceno’s Darth Plagueis has been pushed back from December 27 (read: still after Christmas) to January 10. No big; our ever-present Star Wars book release schedule has been updated.
Hintage. Lucasfilm editor J. W. Rinzler hints at future projects with DK on Twitter.
New York ComicCon. Del Rey will have Drew Karpyshyn and Bonnie Burton at their Star Wars booth. NYCC runs Oct. 13 – 16.
Street date shuffle. The release of Jason Fry’s Essential Guide to Warfare has been moved to May 22 next year, Erich Schoeneweiss announced on Facebook. On the plus side, it’s only two months, and he did include a nice Hoth sketch from Tommy Lee Edwards.
Contest. Suvudu is planning another meal for three fans with Timothy Zahn. This time it’s breakfast at Dragon*Con with Tim, Shelly Shapiro and Betsy Mitchell.
Video. The Blueprints has a trailer. Naturally.
Del Rey has tweaked the release schedule again… This time, Zahn’s Choices of One moves back to the original date of July 19th, while the Heir to the Empire anniversary edition moves up slightly to September 6.
Drew Karpyshyn’s The Old Republic: Revan jumps back a month to November 15. Meanwhile, on his blog, Karpyshyn compares game Revan to book Revan.
As I post this, Del Rey editor Shelly Shapiro is chatting with fans on Facebook. I’ll be back later with another post on her comments when the dust has cleared.
