Convention Exclusive-cover featuring L3 and Chewbacca …

Even the fastest ship in the galaxy can’t outrun the past….

THEN:

It’s one of the galaxy’s most dangerous secrets: a mysterious transmitter with unknown power and a reward for its discovery that most could only dream of claiming. But those who fly the Millennium Falcon throughout its infamous history aren’t your average scoundrels. Not once, but twice, the crew of the Falcon tries to claim the elusive prize—first, Lando Calrissian and the droid L3-37 at the dawn of an ambitious career, and later, a young and hungry Han Solo with the help of his copilot, Chewbacca. But the device’s creator, the volatile criminal Fyzen Gor, isn’t interested in sharing. And Gor knows how to hold a grudge…

NOW:

It’s been ten years since the rebel hero Han Solo last encountered Fyzen Gor. After mounting a successful rebellion against the Empire and starting a family with an Alderaanian princess, Han hasn’t given much thought to the mad inventor. But when Lando turns up at Han’s doorstep in the middle of the night, it’s Fyzen’s assassins that he’s running from. And without Han’s help, Lando—and all life on Cloud City—will be annihilated.

With the assistance of a young hotshot pilot, an Ewok slicer prodigy, the woman who might be the love of Lando’s life, and Han’s best and furriest friend, the two most notorious scoundrels in the New Republic are working together once more. They’ll have to journey across the stars—and into the past—before Gor uses the device’s power to reshape the galaxy.

As seen in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, welcome to the casino city of Canto Bight. A place where exotic aliens, captivating creatures, and other would-be high rollers are willing to risk everything to make their fortunes. Set across one fateful evening, these four interconnected stories explore the deception and danger of the lavish casino city.

• An honest salesman meets a career criminal as a dream vacation turns into the worst nightmare imaginable, in a story by Saladin Ahmed.

• Dreams and schemes collide when a deal over a priceless bottle of wine becomes a struggle for survival, as told by Mira Grant.

• Old habits die hard when a servant is forced into a mad struggle for power among Canto Bight’s elite, in a tale by Rae Carson

• A deadbeat gambler has one last chance to turn his luck around; all he has to do is survive one wild night, as told by John Jackson Miller.

In Canto Bight, one is free to revel in excess, untouched from the problems of a galaxy once again descending into chaos and war. Dreams can become reality, but the stakes have never been higher—for there is a darkness obscured by all the glamour and luxury.

from the announcement:

The author of Half-Resurrection Blues and Shadowshaper has penned this novel that connects three eras in the lives of Han Solo and Lando Calrissian. “Part of it takes place before the events of Solo and focuses on Lando and L3-37,” Siglain says, referring to Lando’s droid sidekick in the new film. “Part of it takes place between Solo and A New Hope, and that focuses on Han and Chewie, and that’s where we get Sana Starros for the first time.” She would be the character, first introduced in the Marvel Comics, who claimed to be married to Han.

Part of it takes place post-Return of the Jedi, and that’s where we see Han, Leia, a very young Ben Solo, and Lando come into the story,” Siglain adds. The cover is reversible — on one side is Han’s silhouette, while Lando’s is on the other.

We bounce around through time,” Siglain says. “We always wanted to tell a story that had Han and Lando having one adventure after Return of the Jedi. At the same time, we really liked the idea of contrasting that with seeing them much earlier in their lives. A crime lord comes looking for the owner of the Millennium Falcon, but mistakenly thinks it was Han Solo at the time, but it was really Lando — which gets Lando mixed up in something else Han did that was Han’s fault. All these years later, the two of them have to right a wrong from much earlier in their history.

“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…”

The release of George Lucas’s Star Wars in 1977 launched an epic saga that has changed how we view science fiction. Experience the wonder and magic of the Star Wars universe with The Star Wars Trilogy, a collection of the first three Star Wars novels and a collective exercise in modern myth-making.

Star Wars: A New Hope, by George Lucas, is the coming-of-age story of Luke Skywalker, a farm boy who finds himself a key player among Rebel forces revolting against the tyrannical Empire. This novel introduces many of the saga’s iconic characters: smuggler Han Solo, his co-pilot Chewbacca, Princess Leia, the droids 3-CPO and R2-D2, Luke’s mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Darth Vader, Luke’s nemesis, who incarnates the dark side of the Force.

The Empire Strikes Back, by Donald F. Glut, continues the thrilling story with the Empire in hot pursuit of the Rebels as they flee to their new outpost on the planet Hoth. Luke trains with the mystical Jedi Master Yoda to channel the Force and hone the skills he needs to become a Jedi Knight–and in a showdown with Darth Vader he learns a stunning revelation about his heritage.

Return of the Jedi, by James Kahn, concludes the trilogy with the Empire embarked on the construction of a new Death Star to replace the one destroyed by Luke and the Rebels. In alliance with the Ewoks of Endor, the Rebels fight the Empire to destroy its new weapon while Luke engages in his climactic final fight with Darth Vader.

George Lucas provides illuminating introductions for each of the three novels.

The Star Wars Trilogy is a distinguished new edition to Barnes & Noble’s Collectible Editions classics. Each volume features an exquisitely designed bonded-leather binding, with distinctive gilt edging and an attractive silk-ribbon bookmark. Decorative, durable, and collectible, these books offer hours of pleasure to readers young and old and are an indispensable cornerstone for every home library.

Written with input from director Rian Johnson, this official adaptation of Star Wars: The Last Jediexpands on the film to include deleted and alternate scenes from the script, like Han Solo’s funeral, Rey’s final lesson from Luke, and more.

From the ashes of the Empire has arisen another threat to the galaxy’s freedom: the ruthless First Order. Fortunately, new heroes have emerged to take up arms—and perhaps lay down their lives—for the cause. Rey, the orphan strong in the Force; Finn, the ex-stormtrooper who stands against his former masters; and Poe Dameron, the fearless X-wing pilot, have been drawn together to fight side-by-side with General Leia Organa and the Resistance. But the First Order’s Supreme Leader Snoke and his merciless enforcer Kylo Ren are adversaries with superior numbers and devastating firepower at their command. Against this enemy, the champions of light may finally be facing their extinction. Their only hope rests with a lost legend: Jedi Master Luke Skywalker.

Where the action of Star Wars: The Force Awakens ended, Star Wars: The Last Jedi begins, as the battle between light and dark climbs to astonishing new heights.
