We previously reported that the hardcover release of Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse will contain a preview of Aaron Allston's X-Wing: Mercy Kill. Today, the Star Wars Books team confirmed this and said that, in addition to Mercy Kill, Apocalypse will also contain a preview of a chapter from Jeff Grubb's Scourge. Regarding the next major Star Wars series, Del Rey's Erich Schoeneweiss said, "We are working hard on the post FotJ saga, we're just not quite ready to talk about it yet." In the comments section, Schoeneweiss also confirmed that the post-FOTJ series will be either a duology or a trilogy. Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse will be out on March 13th, 2012.
