Star Wars Poe Dameron Free Fall

Star Wars book news: Thrawn delay blues, Poe Dameron prequel, ‘Project Luminous’ looms

Books Sci-Fi/Fantasy Top story

There’s a new Poe Dameron novel added to the Star Wars book publishing schedule, plus a Thrawn delay and the mysterious “Project Luminous” will finally be revealed in the next month …

So, Thrawn: The Ascendancy Trilogy Book 1: Chaos Rising has been delayed from its original publishing date of May 5 to Oct. 6 — but there’s going to be a cool special edition with a Chiss-blue spine!

Also, to blunt the pain of the Thrawn delay a bit, know you now that the “Dramatis Personae” page of character names and affiliations, a staple of the expansive old “Expanded Universe” before Disney bought Lucasfilm and rebooted the book canon, is returning — and here’s why, straight from the Del Rey editor’s fingertips:

We also found out this week that we’re getting a young Poe Dameron and Zorii Bliss story, classified as YA fiction but c’mon:

And, whatever “Project Luminous” is — whether it’s an anthology, a series, a celebration of The Empire Strikes Back’s 40th anniversary as some have speculated, or something else entirely — we should know a lot more come Feb. 24:

Confused yet? (You should see the old “Legends” canon!) Check out our running catalogue of the new, canon Star Wars book universe, along with a cover art gallery (some not final):
