Interview With ‘Thrawn: Alliances’ Author Timothy Zahn, Novel Is Out Today

To celebrate the general release of his sequel novel Thrawn: Alliances in bookstores today, author Timothy Zahn spent some time speaking with StarWars.com about this highly anticipated title. If you missed out on obtaining the two exclusive versions of the novel that were available at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, you can still nab an exclusive edition of the 368-page hardcover by heading to your local Barnes & Nobel store as they will be offering a special Padme poster with their release of the novel.

We’re finally done counting down the days until the release of Thrawn: Alliances, which brings the fan-favorite Chiss strategist back for a set of missions with none other than the Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader. StarWars.com has previously revealed a few excerpts from the new novel by Timothy Zahn: An assignment from the Emperor, a look back at the first encounter between Thrawn and the man who was Anakin Skywalker, and Padmé on a mission. Talking recently by phone in between stops on his busy summer convention tour, Zahn, the creator of Grand Admiral Thrawn, helps us dive into the world of Thrawn: Alliances, which hits shelves today.
