Expanded Universe fans, rejoice! Today, Entertainment Weeklyexclusively revealed the title and cover art for Timothy Zahn's next Star Wars novel, Scoundrels. You can check out the cover above, while the description is below.
The Death Star has been destroyed. The Rebellion has had its first big victory. And Han Solo, newly conscripted to the Rebel cause, is on the run from the Empire and the bounty hunters eager to turn him in for the huge reward being offered by Jabba the Hutt. Now a mysterious stranger offers Han the resources to execute a daring robbery from a major crime lord. The mission is impossible, but the prize will make Han a free man. With no choice but to accept, Han Solo and his Wookiee partner, Chewbacca, set out to assemble a cast of rogues, knaves, and cons with the right combination of wits, skills, and derring-do to pull off an operation of this complexity and scale?the best scoundrels the galaxy has to offer. And then the game is on: a rip-roaring, intergalactic, Ocean?s Eleven-style heist adventure starring Han Solo, Chewie, and Lando Calrissian, written by #1 New York Times bestselling Star Wars author Timothy Zahn!
UPDATE: Timothy Zahn posted the following on Facebook regarding the literal rogue's gallery of characters who will team up with Han, Chewie, and Lando in this book:
I've noticed that speculation has already begun as to the identities of the rest of the scoundrels. Just to make it clear: while there may be a name or two you recognize, most of the rest of the group will be new characters. (Many of Han's old established cohorts are smugglers, and we're going to need *slightly* different skill sets on this one.)
