As many of you know, Carrie Fisher released her newest book called “The Princess Diarist”, which reveals a rather personal account of the making of A New Hope from her unique perspective. I’m about halfway through the book, and it’s very good. Sure, the love affair with Ford is interesting, but her current perspective on showbiz vs her naiveté back in the 70’s is often quite revealing and hilarious. It’s a wonderful read, and gives a different perspective on the making of Star Wars. Amazon has the book at nearly half-off, so get it for yourself or that special feisty princess in your life.

Our Hardback Novel guide was in need of a major overhaul since the release of the Canon novels. With the release of so many post-Return of the Jedi stories in the new canon timeline, it was hard to fit them into the timeline with the post-Return of the Jedi Legends stories. We have now broken our guide up into three sections, hopefully making it easier (and clearer) to follow for those interested in keeping track for their collections. Stop by and have a look at the changes!
