    • Return to Vader’s Castle – Another collection of spooky stories coming for Halloween season, will focus on the bad guys. Stories will center around Darth Maul, Asajj Ventress, Jabba the Hutt, Darth Vader, and Grand Moff Tarkin.

In addition, a print version of Scott’s Dooku: Jedi Lost — previously an audio-only release — is on the way in October.
