The publication is being released by Epic Ink and will be available October 30 in a standard and deluxe edition (priced at $99.99) featuring lights and sounds for added awesomeness. Check out the intro to Wallace’s interview with Lucasfilm’s dandy Dan Brooks below (along with a closer look at the book’s cover) and then click here for the full read.
Han Solo. Lando Calrissian. Doctor Aphra. In Star Wars, we love our smugglers, scoundrels, and adventurers — those who take chances, who live by their own rules, and who make their own luck. After all, who else could’ve made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs? Or would’ve even attempted to? Surely not a Jedi.
That’s why we’re excited to pull back the curtain on Star Wars: Smuggler’s Guide, coming October 30 from Epic Ink in a deluxe edition (featuring lights and sounds!) and a standard edition on the way in the future. Written by Dan Wallace and fully illustrated, Smuggler’s Guide includes a treasure trove of stories and insights from the galaxy’s most notorious; in other words, it’s a collective journal that has continuously changed hands over the generations, documenting the thoughts and secrets of some legendary pirates and rogues. And now it’s ours.
StarWars.com caught up with Wallace to discuss how Smuggler’s Guide carries on a Star Wars publishing tradition, writing in the voices of Star Wars‘s shadiest, and why we love smugglers and their ilk so much.
