Tor Books

ISBN 978-12502-0851-4

George Beahm, a former U.S. Army major, draws on his experience to discuss the military science of the sprawling Star Wars universe: its personnel, weapons, technology, tactics and strategy, including an analysis of its key battles to explain how the outmanned and outgunned rebels ultimately prevailed against overwhelming forces.

Contrasting the military doctrine of the real world with the fictional world of Star Wars, the author constructively criticizes the military strengths and weaknesses of Darth Vader’s Galactic Empire and Kylo Ren’s First Order…

From Star Wars: A New Hope (1977) to Rogue One (2016), this timely book demystifies the operational arts in an accessible and entertaining way for military personnel and civilians.

Replete with a glossary of military terms, this book is supplemented with an annotated bibliography.

illustrated by Chris Trevas & Chris Reiff

hardcover (126 pages)

Haynes Publishing

ISBN 978-1-7852-1223-9

£ 18.99

solicitation copy:

Just as the Galactic Empire used great fleets of starships to expand Imperial control across the galaxy, the subsequent authoritarian government, the First Order, used even more technologically advanced ships to unify planetary systems and crush all opposition. With both regimes, the most abundant and ubiquitous ships in their respective fleets were the notoriously lethal TIE fighters.

The TIE Fighter Owners Workshop Manual presents a thorough history of Sienar Fleet Systems twin ion engine space superiority fighter, from early concepts and prototypes to the mass-produced starfighters that fought countless battles against insurgent groups. The history of TIE fighters including bombers, boarding craft, and shuttles is fully illustrated with numerous photographs, schematics, exploded diagrams, and computer-generated artwork by Star WarsTM vehicle experts Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas. Text is by Ryder Windham, author and co-author of more than 70 Star Wars books. This Haynes Manual is the most thorough technical guide to TIE fighters available, and is fully authorized and approved by Lucasfilm.

Coverage includes:
– Sienar Fleet Systems and the TIE series

– Imperial TIE Fighters

– TIE Starfighter series

– First Order TIE Fighters

– Weapons and defensive systems

– The pilots, training and gear

– Size comparison chart

from the announcement:

This is a Haynes Manual based on the Sienar Fleet Systems TIE Fighter, the iconic space superiority fighter which has long been the mainstay of Imperial and First Order forces, customised variants of which were piloted by Sith Lord Darth Vader in the original Star Wars Trilogy, and Kylo Ren during the First Order’s war with the Resistance.

Using brand-new cutaway illustrations, together with other art and photographs, this manual provides the most thorough technical description and operating guide available for the various TIE Fighter variants, making it essential reading for all Star Wars fans.

solicitation copy:

The Do or Do Not Outlook provides tips and pointers on developing the right outlook to undertake the difficult journey toward living your dreams. This book turns traditional wisdom on its head, examining the fears and traditions that discourage us from taking the risk of reaching for the stars while pointing out that another word for “normal” is “average.”

Nick Maley, renowned worldwide as “The Yoda Guy” for his involvement as a key contributor in the creation of the character Yoda, shares the diverse life experiences that have given him a unique insight into living outside the box. The Do or Do Not Outlook uses Yoda’s most famous words to inspire us all to do the same thing and celebrate those very qualities that make you unique. A short autobiographical section outlines how this outlook helped Maley overcome specific problems on his rise to success.

Learn great tips such as…
I. Basic Principles
– You Can’t Live an Exceptional Life by Being “Normal”
– If you don’t invest in your impossible dreams. You are the one who guarantees they won’t come true.
– Build on what you have that other don’t
– Each morning ask yourself “What will I do today to get me once centimeter closer to where I’m trying to go.”

II. Adopting The Right Attitude
– You can’t lead by following others
– You won’t overcome your insecurities unless you face them
– Talent helps but persistence succeeds
– Think BIG… And then think even BIGGER

III. Dealing With Life
– You can’t control circumstances. You can only control your reaction to them.
– Negativity is infectious. Beware of unwarranted epidemics.
– If you have to work just to maintain your possessions, you don’t really own that stuff. It owns you

IV. Harsh Realities
– You can’t live an exceptional life without making an exceptional effort.
– When the journey brings you down…

V. Final Thoughts
– Be the river that flows to the sea
– Don’t let the person you are destined to become, be smothered by the insecurities of who you are now.
– The people who fail are those who give up.

And many more!

ISBN 978-1-4654-8610-3

$ 24.99

solicitation copy:

Discover the incredible untold story of one of Star Wars‘ most iconic characters, C-3PO, told by the man who knows
him best.

“Did you hear that? They’ve shut down the main reactor! We’ll be destroyed for sure. This is madness.”

These words were the very first to be spoken in any Star Wars movie, and they were spoken by a droid: C-3PO.
With his gleaming golden body and good-intentioned (yet worrisome) personality, C-3PO was there at the very beginning. Of course, C-3PO wasn’t actually a robot, or some amazing early animatronic creation – he was actually a man named Anthony Daniels.

Now, for the very first time, Anthony Daniels will tell C-3PO’s story in its entirety, from seeing the first concept images to the early stages of the final film in the Skywalker saga, Star Wars: Episode IX, and in the process, will also tell his own. This includes his encounters with movie legends such as Sir Alec Guinness, what it was like working closely with George Lucas, and the friendships he formed with Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and others. But being encased in a solid shell for countless hours also involved hardships, pain, and in some cases real physical danger.
