The Star Wars

a new Star Wars Insider
short story by Alexander Freed, which the Del Rey team describes as "a refreshing yet gritty take on the destruction of Alderaan."
The same Facebook post also promises good things from James Luceno's upcoming novel Star Wars: Tarkin
. According to Del Rey's team, Luceno "beautifully amalgamates the classic trilogy incarnations of Vader and the Emperor with their prequel era counterparts."
