It’s an interesting time to be a Star Wars fan. The old expanded universe may be gone, but the new canon that the Lucasfilm story group has been carefully overseeing has been mostly successful, telling stories set in this beloved universe that always feel like they matter and are always pushing characters into interesting new places. For the first time in years, keeping up with the canon feels fresh and fun and maybe even necessary to fully appreciate what’s going on in the grand scheme of things.
Which brings us to the other side of this double-edged sword: how many of us have that kind of time? Chuck Wendig‘s new novel, Star Wars: Aftermath – Life Debt, hits stores today and I’ll be brutally honest and just say that I have no idea when I’ll be able to carve out the time to read it. However, this is a case where the internet is our mutual friend. If you want to stay on top of the broad strokes of what’s going on in the space between Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we’ve got you covered.
