The New York Comic Con got underway today, and two new books were added to an already exciting lineup of upcoming Star Wars books.

The first one is a Classic-Era novel starring Han Solo by James S. A. Correy, as part of the same newly announced “Rebel” series that already has a book scheduled to feature on Luke Skywalker and another book on Princess Leia.

The second book announced is tentatively titled “KENOBI” and features everyone’s favorite Jedi Master after Episode 3, and will be by John Jackson Miller. Cue Synlah fainting.



Christie Golden’s Sword of the Jedi trilogy will feature Jagged Fel, Tahiri, Ben Skywalker, and Allana.

Paul S. Kemp’s still untitled duology “will f’ing blow your minds!”

With the 9 book series, Fate of the Jedi, just wrapped up Del Rey has not left us waiting for long with the unveiling of their coming series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars 2.  You can read an extensive overview of what is surely going to be the most epic series ever in the Star Wars Universe.  We here at Roqoo Depot are so thrilled we can hardly wait for the debut novel.  And we can only applaud Del Rey’s vision and the choice of Timothy Zahn to kick off an exciting new chapter in the GFFA.

Author Joe Schreiber is having a meeting at Random House today according to his tweet.  On Tuesday we posted a book proposal that is right up Mr. Schreiber’s alley.  As well Erich of Del Rey tweeted this:

This week a fantastic idea for a #StarWars novel got paired with the perfect author to write it. Can’t wait until we can tell you more.

Coincidence?  We think not: the icing on the cake.

What next? Will Chris Trevas be working on a new Star Wars cover? If so, then we can only speculate that it will contain some smooching skeletons.
