A Certain Point of View Celebrates 40 Years of Star Wars: A New Hope

Star Wars From a Certain Point of ViewThursday evening, Del Rey (at their @DelReyStarWars account) stirred up Star Wars fandom on Twitter by teasing the announcement of something called Operation Blue Milk. The hashtag, #OperationBlueMilk quickly blew up with speculation followed by various authors, some new and old to SW writing, revealing they were part of the project. While Amazon might have beat Del Rey to the official announcement, the details have finally been released and it’s a pretty exciting surprise: 40 different authors retelling events from A New Hope from random background characters’ points of view!

Lords of the Sith

Light Spoiler Review –

Lords of the Sith (LotS), written by Paul S. Kemp, is the latest of the canon novels and the third to focus on the timeframe between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Whereas the others focused on Tarkin and a meeting between eventual rebels-in-arms, LotS centers on the Master and apprentice relationship of Vader and Palpatine, as they fight off a proto-rebel group without backup on a foreign planet. Overall, it’s a thoroughly enjoyable book thanks to its well-written and sometimes surprising characters and an engaging motif, though its action sequences drag on a little too long.
