Star Wars Classic Trilogy Books

"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...." started it all on 25 May, 1977.

Since that time, more than 80 books, comics, anthologies and graphic novels have been written and it appears there is no end in sight. As the collection has grown, so has our Library. Since April, 2001, the outstanding efforts of our avid readers and writers, and the continued excellence of the chosen authors have directed us to separate Star Wars into 2 sections.

Here, the "Star Wars Classic Trilogy" encompasses the stories told from "Star Wars - A New Hope" to "Vision of the Future", the culmination of Timothy Zahn's duology taking place 19 years after the destruction of the 1st Death Star at Yavin. All the reference books are here, as well as the "Young Jedi Knights Series" for the young adult reader.

To visit the "Expanded Universe" or any other section of the Library, just click on the text links under the header.

So, relax, take a break. Put your feet up and read a book. Remember...

The Force will be with you....Always!
