Fate of the Jedi is currently underway and the nine book series does not end until 2011, but Del Rey has the contract for Star Wars novels until 2013. What, then, can fans look forward to after 2011? According to Lucasbooks’ Executive Editor Sue Rostoni,
“Honestly, we’re not presently looking at another long series — more stand-alones, duologies, and trilogies. At least that’s where we’re headed today.”
What does that mean? It seems Expanded Universe fans are in for similar times as the Bantam days, which may be exactly what some readers may need right now, feeling that the EU is giving too much, too quickly.
