While it had been previously reported that the eventual paperback releases of the Fate of the Jedi novels were going to be in a more expensive and larger size, this idea has apparently been nixed. Though the initial news of the premium sized paperbacks came via Sue Rostoni, it's Sue who updates us on the latest news at the SW.com boards:
"Some news -- the Fate of the Jedi paperback reprints will NOT be published in the premium size, but in regular paperback size at the paperback price. Your bookshelves will now not suffer."
We hope this comes as good news to those worried about not their wallets, but their lovely Star Wars books displays as well. Sue Rostoni has the paperback release for FOTJ #1, Outcast, set for May 2010 while Amazon has the release listed for April 27, 2010. We'll keep you posted.
Big thanks to regular book news source Ewan of SWBooks.co.uk for the heads up!
