We are clearly not unbiased when it comes to everything Star Wars, but when there’s a totally perfect Star Wars gift to celebrate May the Fourth and it happens to support one of our own team, we’re all over it. And you should be too.

Can’t wait for The Last Jedi? You’re in luck!


Uh. So I’ve been keeping secrets from you… #Phasma

Our own longtime contributor Delilah S. Dawson, also a popular author, girl power graphic novelist, hilarious Instagrammer and bona fide Star Wars junkie is now putting her myriad talents together in the officially Lucas-sanctioned Star Wars: Phasma.

Slated for a September release, the novel is part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi series which details galactic life before Episode VIII. And knowing Delilah? It’s nothing short of fabulous.

After all, she even owns a Captain Phasma handbag.

(I found it at Think Geek on sale for $55.99 if you want one too.)

My new PHASMA bag. Now full of lip balm, mints, and violence.

But wait, as with all things Star Wars, there’s more!

Delilah is also one of 40 contributors of the upcoming 40th anniversary anthology, Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View which shares, yes, 40 stories from the perspective of A New Hope background characters.

I always wonder what happened to all those guys in the cantina. Well, after 40 years, what’s a few more months.

Preorder Star Wars: Phasma by Delilah S Dawson from Penguin-Random House. It’s slated to ship Sept 1st. Also learn more about the new Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi series at Tor books.
