Del Rey announced at New York Comic Con the release of two upcoming books set in the Star Wars universe.
The first, Kenobi by John Jackson Miller, shows us the Jedi’s life right after the events of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and chronicles his attempts to, as the author says, “stop being Obi-Wan — and learn to live as Ben”. Kenobi is set for release in late 2013.
The second book announced is the 3rd book in the upcoming Rebels standalone novels, all of which take place between Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back and focus on the main characters from the original trilogy. The new, as-yet-untitled book announced will focus on Han Solo and will be written by James S. A. Corey), the pseudonym for Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, authors of the well-received space opera novels Leviathan Wakes and sequel Caliban’s War.
