Author Cavan Scott has been making a big name for himself in A Galaxy Far, Far Away. As the writer of Star Wars: The High Republic from Marvel Comics, he’s been delivering monthly high-flying adventures featuring the Jedi Knights and set two hundred years before the events of the Skywalker Saga.

While we wait for Scott’s other big upcoming entry in Lucasfilm’s ambitious new cross-platform initiative Star Wars: The High Republic – The Rising Storm, which was announced back in December for a release this July, publisher Del Rey has just announced yet another new project for the author in this multi-year project. Star Wars: The High Republic – Tempest Runner will be Cavan Scott’s second audio drama after 2019’s Dooku – Jedi Lost and will focus on one of The High Republic’s villainous Nihil leaders called Lourna Dee.

What’s happening:

  • Del Rey and Lucasfilm Publishing have announced a new audio drama entitled Star Wars: The High Republic – Tempest Runner by author Cavan Scott, who is the writer of Marvel’s current Star Wars: The High Republic comic book.
  • Cavan Scott has also written the young reader books Star Wars: Adventures in Wild Space, Star Wars: Choose Your Destiny and Star Wars: The High Republic – The Great Jedi Rescue, the kid-focused comic books Star Wars Adventures and Star Wars: Tales from Vader’s Castle, the audio drama Star Wars: Dooku – Jedi Lost, plus the upcoming adult novel Star Wars: The High Republic – The Rising Storm.
  • On Twitter, publisher Del Rey gave a brief synopsis for Tempest Runner: “Follow the villainous Lourna Dee. As leader amongst the Nihil, she's always looking over her shoulder for threats. Either from the Jedi, or the Nihil themselves.”

What they’re saying:

  • Author Cavan Scott:  “What? I’m back writing Star Wars audio drama? You bet I am! TEMPEST RUNNER coming this autumn.”

Star Wars: The High Republic – Tempest Runner will be released this fall and will become available for pre-order soon.
