    Experience Star Wars: A New Hope from a whole new point of view.

    On May 25, 1977, the world was introduced to Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, C-3PO, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, and a galaxy full of possibilities.

    In honour of the fortieth anniversary, more than forty contributors lend their vision to this retelling of Star Wars. Each of the forty short stories re-imagines a moment from the original film, but through the eyes of a supporting character.

    From a Certain Point of View features contributions by best-selling authors, trendsetting artists, and treasured voices from the literary history of Star Wars

    • Gary Whitta bridges the gap from Rogue One to A New Hope through the eyes of Captain Antilles.

    • Aunt Beru finds her voice in an intimate character study by Meg Cabot.

    • Nnedi Okorofor brings dignity and depth to a most unlikely character: the monster in the trash compactor.

    • Pablo Hidalgo provides a chilling glimpse inside the mind of Grand Moff Tarkin.

    • Pierce Brown chronicles Biggs Darklighter’s final flight during the Rebellion’s harrowing attack on the Death Star.

    • Wil Wheaton spins a poignant tale of the rebels left behind on Yavin.

    Plus thirty-four more hilarious, heartbreaking, and astonishing tales from:
