If you consider yourself to be a serious Star Wars fan, not just the films, but the EU and everything that goes along with it, then you should buy the new book ‘From a certain point of view- 40 stories celebrating 40 years of Star Wars’. I’ve only read 6 stories so far and I’ve cried, I’ve laughed and I’ve spat coffee over my keyboard…
It consists of 40 short stories based on background characters in the original 1977 movie.
Some are hilarious and some are real tear-jerkers. For example: the first is a story called Raymus. Written by Gary Whitta (Rogue One writer) that bridges the short gap between the end of Rogue One and the first few minutes of A New Hope. All told from the point of view of Captain Raymus Antilles. Wil Wheaton has also written one called ‘Laina’. A moving story about Rebel Soldiers left behind on Yavin IV.
Check it out. I’ve yet to be disappointed by it!
