    SWCVI: Del Rey’s Star Wars Expanded Universe

    This morning’s Del Rey panel was my very first Star Wars Celebration panel ever, but I wasn’t too nervous since I was up on stage with people much more talented and expressive than me: authors Aaron Allston, Troy Denning, James Luceno, Drew Karpyshyn, and Timothy Zahn; Del Rey Editor-at-Large Shelly Shapiro; and our esteemed moderator, Pablo Hidalgo. So let’s get to what was discussed!

    Random House Audio, publisher of the Star Wars audiobooks, has set up a recording studio right on the convention floor for Star Wars Celebration VI this week, inviting fans to come by their booth and record excerpts from Timothy Zahn’s HEIR TO THE EMPIRE.

    If you were around in the ’70s, there’s no way you could not be aware of Star Wars, and in the summer of 1977, I saw A New Hope on the big screen at least sixteen times. I bought the novelization, I bought the comic books, I read the newspaper strips. I was a fan.

    Star Wars things you probably don’t remember

    Star Wars Celebration VI is approaching, and I’ll be there, doing panels and a number of signings for Dark Horse and Del Rey. I’ve always enjoyed these kinds of appearances immensely.
