During Celebration Anaheim earlier this year we learned that author Alan Dean Foster would be penning the novelization for The Force Awakens. It was announced that the eBook release of the novel would be arriving the same day Episode VII hit theaters (December 18) and the hardcover edition would be released sometime afterwards in January.

At the time of this announcement, we didn’t have a photo of the final cover design for the novel. Now we do. Click the image above for a larger view.

Brian is an obsessive collector of Star Wars books, comics, and magazines. With a collection extending into the tens of thousands, he is obsessed by variants, and the more obscure a publication the better! Brian was the Literature Editor for Jedi News, and was also host of the podcast Take Cover on the Jedi News Network until August 2017. Brian stepped down from Jedi News in August 2017 for personal reasons. At the end of October 2017 he was part of the team that launched Fantha Tracks.
