As previously mentioned there will be a series of novels and comics released in the run-up to Episode VII. While we had only vague details, we did know that these publications would be dealing with what occurred after Episode VI.
We now have information on one of the first full-length novels relating to this time period, aptly named Star Wars: Aftermath. As the title itself alludes to, this novel will deal with the aftermath of the second Death Star blowing up and just how the rest of the galaxy dealt with the consequences of that action.
This novel is actually the first in a trilogy that will help bridge the divide between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. It will be written by Chuck Wending, and I would be happy to hear thoughts from others on this author. I personally have not heard of him before, but he does seem to have a number of books and guides under his belt. September 4th appears to be the tentative release date for this novel, and I'll assume the other novels in the trilogy will come out soon after.
I honestly can't wait for these books to finally come out as I really want to see what direction they have "officially" taken, and maybe it will also help us in our own fictional direction?
