Star Wars back catalog - June 28

Sorry if this has already been posted, I didn't see it.

The entire back catalog of Star Wars books is coming out in ebook format in June.

http://www.starwars.com/vault/books/...ram/index.html

Some of the books are not so good but I am really looking forward to re-reading the original Timothy Zahn trilogy that started it all.

Heir to the Empire
Dark Force Rising
The Last Command

Were all really good in my opinion.

the book that started it all was Splinter of the Mind's Eye by Alan Dean Foster. I read that book when I was about 10 or 12 when it first came out and still have the original copy, albeit with a broken spine from the number of times its been read. :


One thing I enjoyed about this announcement was the tally- 106. Thats how many there are. I quickly when to my selves and counted seems I have a few more to get...

I'd like to get back into reading these books. Should they be released in ebook format, I'd be happy to pick through them again.

Finally! A legit release. I've been buying the Fate of the Jedi once they get cheap, but all I've got for many earlier releases are txt converted to epub. And while I really like calibre, it can't make gold out of lead.

I am really psyched to read this! and yes, there are lots of dross books, but I love them anyway

I didn't see a list though. Or what formats. Guess I'll just have to start a google news thingy...

Me too, I'm a sucker for Star Wars books even though I haven't been too impressed with the Legacy of the Force or the Fate of the Jedi series.

I would imagine that they are coming in multiple formats....Amazon already has a bunch of them up for pre-order for the Kindle.

Excellent. $8 an ebook. I can deal with that. Especially when considering $15 or more hardcovers...

yes! and I really have been liking them [and I'm not a short story kind of guy either].
However, one bad side effect of that was that I had very high hopes for "Knight Errant" and felt extremely let down by it

Excellent! I'll definitely get the Thrawn trilogy by Zahn () and maybe even the gigantic Yuuzhan Vong war series (what is it? 25 books? ).

Legacy of the Force was let-down for me (the EU petering out) so in my world-view, the EU kinda ends with the Vong . LOTF is where I finally gave up on SW .

Needless to say, I'm WAY TOO EXCITED! Of course, I did just spend the last 3 years replacing all my SW books after they were all damaged. I'll still keep them around.

Question

Is this why I haven't be able to find the lastest Fate of the Jedi paperback books in stores? I've looked and looked for Backlash and haven't seen Allies yet.

But I did find a cheap ebook reader for my husband (he's the one who reads the SW books) so I'll be getting the rest of them in ebook format.

I wouldn't mind getting at least a few of these. I seem to remember liking the X-Wing titles, although it was a long time ago that I read them. I really don't know if I'll want them bad enough to pay what they'll likely be priced at though.

Oh this is delicious. I own EVERY Star Wars Novel (non-kid series except Young Jedi Knights), have bought them since they started coming out...good or bad...love them. I just sold off my Star Wars novels the other day to make room for a new bedroom going in, so this makes me very happy!

I liked the original Timothy Zahn trilogy as well. I've read a few others, but not many. The worst was the trilogy I read by Kevin J. Anderson.
