Brief Details On the Stories from the “A Certain Point of View” Anthology Plus Audiobook Voice Cast Revealed

In celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars, Del Rey will be releasing their next Star Wars book, A Certain Point of View, on October 3. The upcoming book is an anthology of 40 different short stories from various authors that tells the story of Star Wars: A New Hope from the perspective of several of the movie’s background characters. Many of the authors together with Del Rey recently took to Twitter to reveal a little bit about their stories in the book. Read on to take a look…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Most of these look very interesting, and I can’t wait to see what fun surprises this book has in store. I look forward to reading some more tales from some of my favorite Star Wars alums, as well as checking out what the newcomers to the GFFA have to offer. The cool thing about this book is that all of the authors will forgo compensation for their contributions as the proceeds will go to charity. The book is available for pre-order now!

 

 

Also StarWars.com revealed a very impressive voice cast, who will be narrating the audiobook, featuring Jon Hamm as Boba Fett!

 

Jonathan Davis
Ashley Eckstein
Janina Gavankar

January LaVoy
Saskia Maarleveld

      Same. I am a sucker for anthology stories and this one exploring small, side characters is right up my alley. 🙂

    This’ll go great alongside the Anniversary Blu-Ray release of Star Wars as seen 40 years ago.

            Jeff, do I know you at all? Do you and I share any sort of history or familiarity here that entitles you to be so rude?

            Please go troll someone else.

            No, but I know you: one of the vocal minority that forever complains about “this” Star Wars not being “their” Star Wars. So familiar.

            more like 78. When the cat comes around the bend sometimes the mountain falls. Maybe you should reevaluate your kremta and eat cheese. That’s what you sound like. You make zero sense.

            And yet you’re still here, trolling a trivial thread you didn’t create, nor understand, while calling the originator of said thread a troll.

            I’m not trolling. I was upset because you were being rude to people in the comment section and I simply pointed it out. Then you started replying with nonsense (that makes you a troll). And besides, you keep replying to me, which would make you just as trivial as I. At least I’m getting paid by the hour to have this argument. If I misunderstood your comment, then why don’t you clarify it instead of replying with nonsense? So what if I didn’t create the thread? There’s a reason there’s a reply button under every comment.

            That’s what I’m talking about. I have no idea what this means. You refuse to clarify yourself and just troll me with nonsense.

            Yes he is. He baited with the classic “give me back my OT” argument and here we are. I think the original trolls were butthurt orginial-OT-only fans like this guy, if we’re all being honest here.

      Give it up. The S.E. SFX made it a better movie, as great as it was. I wouldn’t watch the originals in their old formats.

            This is why reading comprehension is important, knucklehead.

            Nothing is wrong with my reading comprehension. The problem is with your writing skills. You make absolutely zero sense.

    Don’t normally buy SW books, but this one has my interest. A really diverse collection of stories. I’ll be buying this one I think.
