    Nope, haven't heard too many good things about it.

    You know full well you'd welcome an Alderaan novel.

    I want to read about the survivors of Alderaan who were shown in LD.

    I think the Aftermath Interludes are chock full of characters that could pop up in their own books or at least initially as supporting characters & then eventually carry something. I know that won't happen this year but hopefully will be a used concept.

    I wonder who's writing The Last Jedi novelization and if it will make it to be included in the 2017 year.

    Hmmm interesting. Apparently Alan Dean Foster was announced mid-April 2015.

    I read an interesting comment on a review on amazon and the person said he wished instead of the solo origin stories ala Thrawn, Catalyst, etc. to things more like Aftermath and I agree to an extent. I'll buy Thrawn but I can't say the same for the other titles of this type unless the character is particularly intriguing or the time in question. I hope we get more of that next year.

    Hi guys, I've been away from this end of the forum for a while, and let me know if I'm wrong, but have we only got two novels left coming out now for the rest of the year: Phasma and Inferno Squad? Or am I missing any?

    Those are the only two announced, so far. There may be one more, in addition to the last Jedi novelization. Based on their previous release schedules one should come out between November and February. Bases on the release date for Phasma November could be fairly possible.

    Also The Legends of Luke Skywalker, but, similarly, that's a junior novel.

    Both are likely to be surprising in respect of their age rating, much like Guardians of the Whills was.
