    I love the Omnibus publications!
    But my checkbook doesn't....
    I've compulsively bought a few that I haven't even read yet!

    [link=http://www.darkhorse.com/Comics/15-681/Star-Wars-The-Clone-Wars-3]The Clone Wars #3[/link] is coming out on Dec. 10 and [link=http://www.darkhorse.com/Books/15-834/Star-Wars-Legacy-Volume-5-TPB]Legacy Volume 5: The Hidden Temple[/link] has been moved to Feb. 25. [link=http://www.amazon.com/Clone-Wars-Campaign-Guide-Accessory/dp/0786949996/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1226245507&sr=8-1]The Clone Wars Campaign Guide[/link] comes out on Jan. 20. And by "Enemies and Assassins" I think you mean [link=http://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Omnibus-Emissaries-Assassins/dp/1595822291/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1226245578&sr=1-1]Emissaries and Assassins[/link], which comes out on April 15th. BTW you have Vector Volume 1 and KOTOR Vindication labeled as reference books instead of TPBs. And it looks like [link=http://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Blood-Oath/dp/0345510674/ref=pd_bbs_sr_4?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1226244869&sr=8-4]Blood Oath[/link] comes out on Apr. 28.

    I got a few more browsing through Amazon:

    There also seems to be a whole plethora of TCW young readers novels coming out but there were too many to list and I don't think most people would be interested in them anyways.

    This is the second of the Star Wars Adventures digest-series by Dark Horse, with an apparent release-date of August 15, 2009...

    Again, written by Jeremy Barlow, but this time with art by a Carlo Soriano...

    Havac, or other mods, is it too early to have a sticky, spoiler discussion thread for Karen Miller's WILD SPACE? I did just notice it got pushed back, and I know there isn't a ton of info out, but who knows how soon copies might start slipping out.

    She had mentioned on her LJ that the book was due out in two weeks, but I think that posting was before it was pushed to the Dec 9th date.

    Got 'em in the list. :D

    The June 15 release date seems odd for CW Vol. 3. Are these still being called "Quarterlies" or have they dropped that designation? [face_thinking]

    The Quarterlies-designation is not used, and the June 15 date is an Amazon-date (thus rather an indication than the actual date which often differs slightly...)

    If this is the second, what was the first? Don't recall hearing about the first, unless you're talking about that Rebel Force thing.

    I'm not really sure about that Imperial Commando date since it keeps changing on Amazon, so I think we should stick to Sue's August 4th date:

    http://blogs.starwars.com/eeusuestornii/11

    We also have Abyss on August 28th, the horror novel on November 1st, and Darth Bane 3 and FOTJ 4 on December 30, 2009.

    Eddie, are the Clone Wars Volume X in the digest size, or what? I want to go back and change the formatting to reflect the fct they've dropped the "quarterly" designation.

    I'll try to integrate the rest of Sue's list as we have it right now into the list.

    ETA: I'll leave the 501st date until we hear back; someone want to ask her in the VIP thread? If not, I can do it later.

    ETA2: Finished; everything we currently know is now in the list.

    Yep, the Clone Wars Volumes are digest-sized, just as the upcoming Star Wars Adventures Volumes are... The regular The Clone Wars series (designated by the # 1, # 2 and such) are regular-sized comics...)

    Oh yeah, I noticed that the second book of the Rebel Force-series is not in the list yet: also slated for January 2009 (which means that they will come out in December 2008, knowing Scholastic) is Rebel Force: Hostage (Book 2 in the series by Alex Wheeler)

    Kay, good, that's what I'll do with it, then. I'll integrate that second Rebel Force title as well. Probably Thursday or Friday.

    Amazon Canada has Vector Volume 2 for June 15, 2009!!!

    http://www.amazon.ca/Star-Wars-Vector-Chapters-4/dp/1595822275/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1227130249&sr=1-14

    Star Wars: Vector Volume Two (Chapters 3 and 4)
    US comic collection: written by Rob Williams, John Ostrander, and Jan Duursema
    comic collection (144 pages), Dark Horse Comics, ISBN 1-59582-227-5, coverprice $ 17.95
    reprints: Star Wars:Rebellion # 15 & 16 (July - August 2008)
    Star Wars: Legacy # 28 - 31 (September - December 2008)
    solicitation copy: Vector is an epic story with repercussions for every era and every hero in the Star Wars galaxy. Told in four chapters, this is the concluding volume. In Chapter Three (Rebellion Volume 4) Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia have to deal with Vector as it crosses their paths and changes the galaxy! On the dark surface of a desolate moon, Luke meets his first Jedi since Obi-Wan Kenobi, only to realize too late that Celeste Morne is far different than his fallen friend - twisted by a Sith Talisman and enraged by Darth Vader! Then, over 135 years later, in the final chapter (Legacy Volume 6), Cade Skywalker's plan to assassinate Emperor Darth Krayt is aided by a "secret weapon" in the form of Celeste Morne - the Jedi Knight of the Old Republic who is in possession of, and possibly possessed by, the powerful Muur Talisman. Cade and Celeste will change the galaxy - for better, or for worse!

    And, strangely enough, the release-date of Karen Traviss' first Imperial Commando novel, 501st, has changed to September 29 on Amazon (from the July-date mentioned by Sue Rostoni: experience has learned us that Amazon's date are often more accurate, as Del Rey's will almost always shift to the Amazon date when the publication-date nears)...
