Del Rey's Star Wars
Books Facebook page has announced
that David J. Williams and Mark S. Williams are writing a two-part short story for Star Wars Insider
that will tell the tale of "an elite squad of rebel B-wing pilots on a suicide mission during the Battle of Endor." The story is called "Blade Squadron" and it will appear in Insider
issues #149 and #150. Chris Trevas will provide accompanying artwork.
"The events of the tale were written as if they were deleted scenes from the original film," according to the Del Rey announcement
, "and are rife with knuckle-whitening action and compelling new characters."
Williams and Williams previously wrote the short story "Maze Run" for Insider
