    Not until July 24, unfortunately. SDCC attendees might be able to grab it a few days early.

    I wish these special editions were not just available at these events... a bit far from Europe. Not sure I want to pay eBay prices...

    Del Rey is only the English publisher of SW books and primarily in the US (though you will find English editions of our books in several places around the world). However, if you are specifically interested in special editions you should inform your local publisher of your interest. For instance, the UK did a special edition of AFTERMATH LIFE DEBT for Star Wars Celebration Europe a few years ago.

    Thing is, I could see Vader turning up at Del Rey's offices and Darth Internous' response would be: Uh, uh, no way bro.

    Cue an Izzard-style Death Star Canteen style exchange of quips: I am Vader, Darth Vader, you want death by tray?

    But it's all in vain because nothing fazes DI as he delivers the ultimate retort: Darth, I deal with your fans day in, day out. You got nothin' on that lot!

    Never thought someone would write mini fanfic about me. Gotta say it's really weird.

    Also, Darth Vader has no control over the publishing schedule.

    I honestly don't know the answer to that question. Well before my time, and in all of the notes/files I have compiled, never came across that specific decision point.

    But even if I did, I would not tell you. And I don't mean this to sound dismissive or glib (it is neither), but our attitude is when something good happens - it's a team effort, and when something falls short, it's a team effort. So you may lay your blame at the feet of the collective. It was everyone's "brilliant idea".

    I can't wait for this book. I'm not much of a fan of what's come out since the Disney buy out but this is the exception to that rule.
    I'm looking forward to this :cool:

    @Noash_Retrac. This is not the place for that, and you know it. Stay on-topic.

    I’m re-reading all the Thrawn Legends and canon novels. Outbound Flight and Thrawn segue so neatly. Just about to finish Last Command. Choices of One is such a good aside.

    I dug up Crisis of Faith not too long ago, and I wouldn't mind if we got a few more novellas from Tim. Hell, more novellas in general would be something I'd get a kick out of.

    I misplaced my paperback copy of Outbound Flight, because it had the Legends version of Mist Encounter. Apart from Eli Vanto, that and the canon version are basically identical.

    Yeah. It was likely cancelled or it was never a thing and just a rumor. Darn. I would’ve loved it.

    Just read the third excerpt. We get a a Padmé side story which is great. I’m hoping this book pleasantly surprises me. I really havent enjoyed a SW novel since A New Dawn

    And here’s the poster mentioned in that story — which will apparently come with the Barnes and Noble edition.

    Glad they used one of her TCW designs, probably the best one. And Darren Tan is brilliant as always.

    Finally more Padme!! This is far overdue! I was excited for this book already, but my hype has just increased exponentially!

    From the excerpt it seems like Padme is a damsel in distress and we will see Anakin and Thrawn rescuing her. But considering its called 'Thrawn' I have to wonder how much page time she'll actually get if Thrawn isn't sharing the space.

    Considering to how much space Governor Pryce got to herself in the previous Thrawn book it could be quite a lot. Or at least quite a lot of the Anakin/Thrawn portion of the book (as opposed to the Vader/Thrawn one).
