Star Wars: the books you're looking for


The books you're looking for

It seems there's a new Star Wars movie. Here's even more about the space saga.

Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know (DK) by Adam Bray, Kerrie Dougherty, Cole Horton and Michael Kogge is a densely illustrated trivia feast with everything from the top six drinks at Mos Eisley Cantina to how much a Gamorrean guard weighs.

Star Wars Psychology: Dark Side of the Mind (Sterling), edited by Travis Langley, gathers more than two dozen essays on such topics as the psychological effects of limb amputation, intergalactic gender psychology and whether droids feel pain.

William Shakespeare's Tragedy of the Sith's Revenge: Star Wars Part the Third (Quirk Books) by Ian Doescher is the sixth in a series that recasts the movies as Elizabethan plays, complete with iambic pentameter, soaring soliloquies and steampunkish woodcut illustrations.
