Just making an appearance on the Interwebs is news of a new collection of Star Wars short stories, titled From a Certain Point of View. Apparently this compilation of tales focuses on background characters from Episode IV: A New Hope. While I disagree with the assertion that this is a "unique, new anthology"--after all, the three Tales from the... anthologies did that, as did the "What's This Guy's Story?" campaign run by WotC--I am excited by this announcement. It's cool that the proceeds will go to a charity that puts books into the hands of young people, and I'm excited to read these new takes on that first film in our beloved Galaxy Far, Far Away.
