Very disappointed in the Heir to the Empire move. That's a big change!

Ugh, I wanted Ascension sooner. And why move Heir to the Empire?

According to Del Rey editor Erich:

"we're just trying to do right for such an amazing and important book. We want to get it into the hands of as many people as possible. I know the delay is not good news but based on everything I'm seeing of this book so far it will be worth the wait."

I was looking forward to HttE soon as an excuse to re-read it. I want to re-read it now, but I want to wait for the annotations.

@Ben:

Well hopefully its worth it. The series has been getting better but it still feels like it needs to have that moment where something big actually happens to me. Maybe it'll be in Ascension.

Well, to be honest, I think these are only minor changes in the schedule Wink

As long as they don't push back the Revan and Darth Plageuis novels, I'm happy. Only schedule change that I'd appreciate concerning the two books is if the release date changed to sooner.

The only two that concern me are Riptide and Ascension. the moving back of these times, while annoying that I have to wait longer, isn't so bad from a monetary standpoint, for one at least. Riptide, well, I could most likely get that for 3 on amazon (if I time my pre-order right).

For Ascension, I'm looking at it from a spoiler perspective. I've gotten most of the FOTJ series as either birthday presents or Christmas presents, so if it's put back, closer to Christmas, I'll be happy because it means I won't have to endure as much time avoiding spoilers. Though I may break at some point and just get it anyway Laughing

Didn't Ascension move up?

I thought it was coming out on Aug. 23. So coming out on Aug. 9 makes it... sooner?

I've had it listed as coming out on the 4th. Of course, that's the UK market. No idea what it was for the US market. Though, as no one went 'woop woop! One week sooner!' it may be that your information was incorrect.

The source was the Star Wars Books facebook page so I'm pretty sure it was correct.
