This Weeks Publications – 11th October 2021

  • by

Welcome to this week’s publications breakdown.

Our Publications Probe Droid caused us some confusion last week. While searching for new publications it passed through the maelstrom and fried some of its circuits, which caused it to report back some anomalies about last weeks releases. It looks like similar issues also hit most of the big social media outlets too, so it wasn’t just our poor probe droid! Apologies for any confusion caused, but War of the Bounty Hunters #5 is out this week!

The scheduled releases for this week will be;

Ronin: A Visions Novel by Emma Mieko Candon
(Del Rey)
Formats: Hardback ISBN 978-0-593-35866-5, eBook (ISBN 978-0-593-35867-2), audiobook (ISBN 978-0-593-46094-8)
A mysterious former Sith wanders the galaxy in this stunning Star Wars tale. An original novel inspired by the world of The Duel from the Star Wars Visions animated anthology.
The Jedi are the most loyal servants of the Empire.
Two decades ago, Jedi clans clashed in service to feuding lords. Sickened by this endless cycle, a sect of Jedi rebelled, seeking to control their own destiny and claim power in service of no master. They called themselves Sith.
The Sith rebellion failed, succumbing to infighting and betrayal, and the once rival lords unified to create an Empire…but even an Empire at peace is not free from violence.
Far on the edge of the Outer Rim, one former Sith wanders, accompanied only by a faithful droid and the ghost of a less civilized age. He carries a lightsaber, but claims lineage to no Jedi clan, and pledges allegiance to no lord. Little is known about him, including his name, for he never speaks of his past, nor his regrets. His history is as guarded as the red blade of destruction he carries sheathed at his side.
As the galaxy’s perpetual cycle of violence continues to interrupt his self-imposed exile, and he is forced to duel an enigmatic bandit claiming the title of Sith, it becomes clear that no amount of wandering will ever let him outpace the specters of his former life.
