New Tales In The Expanded Universe

I’m a professional writer by trade, and I’ve brought a lot of love and attention to these tales. They’re written in the style of the classic Bantam or Del Rey novels that you remember, picking up threads long since abandoned by official Star Wars, and devoted to the lore we grew up with.

All subscribers get access to these free short stories based on the Star Wars Expanded Universe. These might be told from the perspective of heroes such as Mara Jade Skywalker or military leaders like Grand Admiral Pellaeon, or from the perspective of an unknown pilot or foot soldier.

I know times are hard and credits are short. But every subscription helps make this unique project viable, and keeps the Expanded Universe we know and love alive and thriving. So sign-up to Age of Legends: The Essential Guide today!


Feedback and suggestions are very welcome. Comment on posts or join the Discord community here.
