The Random House Fall catalog is up and lucky for us, there’s some information about the much anticipated Han Solo book penned by Timothy Zahn.
From the catalog:
Ocean’s Eleven meets Star Wars in this classic adventure set just after Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. From #1 New York Times bestselling author Timothy Zahn.
The Death Star has just been destroyed and Han Solo still needs the money to pay off the bounty on his head. Now the opportunity to make that money and then some has walked into his life in the form of the perfect heist. With nine like-minded scoundrels, he and Chewbacca just might be able to pull it off and live to tell the tale!
Sounds like a fun read! The listing states Dec. 26 as the release date. That, of course, can change at a moment’s notice. The only question I have thus far is about Lando’s participation (see Key Selling Points). Is Zahn going to create a different “swindle” than what we read about in the Han Solo trilogy?
In other news, check out Eric Geller’s Troy Denning interview on the Suvudu blog regarding Apocalypse. It contains many eye-brow raising remarks regarding Abeloth (no real explanation), Ben, Vestara and an illogical look at Jaina (this is Star Wars. Stories happen all over the place. Not an excuse to keep her and Jag apart).
