Forty is the magic number for Star Wars this year, with a special volume coming to us from a galaxy far, far away replete with 40 authors writing 40 stories for Star Wars‘ 40th anniversary.

The volume From a Certain Point of View, which will also be released in audiobook form, gives background stories for everyone from your average X-Wing pilot to the famed Boba Fett, the infamous mercenary from The Return of the Jedi and Empire Strikes Back (who we’ve only heard with voice distortion due to his helmet). In honor of such a special occasion, it’s only fitting that Boba Fett gets an equally special voice actor for the audiobook: Jon Hamm.
