Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy

For the first time, Lucasfilm has opened its Archives to present the complete storyboards for the original Star Wars trilogy—the world-changing A New Hope and its operatic sequels, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi—as well as never-before-published art from early conceptual and deleted scenes.

From the opening chase above Tatooine in A New Hope to the Battle of Endor in Jedi, this book presents the visual inspiration behind now-iconic moments. Readers can finally see a full set of storyboards by legendary artist Joe Johnston, as well as early boards for Episode IV by Alex Tavoularis and for Episode V by Ivor Beddoes, rarely seen Episode VI boards by Roy Carnon, and Ralph McQuarrie’s never-before-seen storyboards for Episode V.

The Son by Jo Nesbo

The Son by Jo Nesbo

A brand new thriller from #1 internationally bestselling crime author Jo Nesbo, which sees a charismatic young prisoner escaping jail to find out the truth about his father’s death.

Sonny is a model prisoner. He listens to the confessions of other inmates at Oslo jail, and absolves them of their sins. Some people even whisper that Sonny is serving time for someone else: that he doesn’t just listen, he confesses to their crimes. Inspector Simon Kefas is a dedicated police officer. Simon has worked for the Oslo police force for years. He’s just been assigned a new murder investigation and a new partner, all on the same day. Both of them knew Sonny’s father. To Sonny he was the man he idolised, to Kirk he was his best friend. Both were devastated when his corruption was revealed. But neither of them knew the truth.
