Betrayal by Aaron Allston

Aaron Allston, the prolific sci-fi and Star Wars expanded universe author who died in February after falling ill at a convention, was honored Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con International by Del Rey’s Star Wars Books team, who donned Hawaiian shirts (an Allston staple) and gave away copies of his book Betrayal.

The team also gave out advance copies of John Jackson Miller’s upcoming Sept. 2 release, A New Dawn, which sets up the new Star Wars Rebels TV series that launches in October on Disney XD.
