“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.

solicitation copy:

This thrilling adaptation of Solo: A Star Wars Story expands on the film to include scenes from alternate versions of the script and other additional content, giving deeper insights into Han Solo’s years in the Imperial Navy, Qi’ra’s past, and the beginnings of the rebellion.

Though Han Solo has thrilled Star Wars fans for decades, the notorious wisecracking scoundrel was chasing adventure and dodging trouble long before he walked into the cantina at Mos Eisley spaceport.

Young Han dreams of someday soaring into space at the helm of his own starship and leaving his home, the gritty industrial planet Corellia, far behind. But as long as he’s trapped in a life of poverty and crime—and under the thumb of the sinister Lady Proxima and her brutal street gang—reaching the distant stars seems impossible. When Han tries to escape with his girlfriend and partner-in-crime, Qi’ra, he makes it out—but she doesn’t. Desperate for a way to find his own offworld vessel and free her, Han enlists in the Imperial Navy—the last place for a rebellious loner who doesn’t play well with others.

When the Empire clips his wings, Han goes rogue and plunges into the shady world of smugglers, gamblers, and con artists. There he meets the charming and cunning high roller Lando Calrissian, makes an unlikely friend in a cantankerous Wookiee called Chewbacca, and first lays eyes on the Millennium Falcon. To snag his piece of the outlaw pie, Han joins a crew of pirates to pull off a risky heist. The stakes are high, the danger is great, and the odds are slim. But never tell Han Solo the odds.

from starwars.com:

The story of the film, expanded to include scenes from alternate versions of the script and additional content, giving deeper insights into Han’s years in the Imperial Navy, Qi’ra’s past, and the beginnings of the Rebellion.

Michael Siglain on what to expect from the Solo: A Star Wars Story novelization:“Much like what we did with The Last Jedi novelization, this expands the story that you’ve seen. There are additional scenes, deleted scenes, all these scenes, and we’re really happy with it.”

Del Rey

ISBN 978-0-525-62214-7

$ 9.99

solicitation copy:

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.

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – EXPANDED EDITION

paperback reprint of the March 6, 2018 hardcover

publisher info:
written by Jason Fry

paperback reprint (304 pages)

Del Rey

ISBN 978-1-5247-9682-2

$ 9.99

solicitation copy:

Written with input from director Rian Johnson, this official adaptation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi expands 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.
