Staff Reviews


"You will find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view" Obi-Wan once told Luke Skywalker, who was devastated that he had been lied to about his father's fate. This new collection of short stories set in that galaxy far, far away explores other events in the Star Wars universe, both large and small. Many of the authors featured in this hefty collection have never before published Star Wars stories, so each new tale is a breath of fresh air, even for fans who have read everything in the ever-expanding universe. — Chris Linendoll

Description


NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - A one-of-a-kind Star Wars experience that sheds new light on the original film.

On May 25, 1977, the world was introduced to Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, C-3PO, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, and a galaxy full of possibilities. In honor of the fortieth anniversary, more than forty contributors lend their vision to this retelling of Star Wars. Each of the forty short stories reimagines a moment from the original film, but through the eyes of a supporting character. From a Certain Point of View features contributions by bestselling authors, trendsetting artists, and treasured voices from the literary history of Star Wars

- Gary Whitta bridges the gap from Rogue One to A New Hope through the eyes of Captain Antilles.
- Aunt Beru finds her voice in an intimate character study by Meg Cabot.
- Nnedi Okorofor brings dignity and depth to a most unlikely character: the monster in the trash compactor.
- Pablo Hidalgo provides a chilling glimpse inside the mind of Grand Moff Tarkin.
- Pierce Brown chronicles Biggs Darklighter's final flight during the Rebellion's harrowing attack on the Death Star.
- Wil Wheaton spins a poignant tale of the rebels left behind on Yavin.
