The vastness of the Star Wars galaxy hosts an ever
unfolding mythology, filled with character-driven stories
of loss and tragedy, of heroism and redemption. Collected
here are ten such tales - thrilling adventures that traverse
and illuminate every era in the Star Wars mythos. From
the life-affirming lessons of the Force to the moral and emotional
fall-out that comes with giving oneself over to the ways of
the Sith, these exhilarating stories will change the way you
see that galaxy far, far away...
in the ongoing Star Wars: Tales collection delivers,
