Book Wars Pod, Episode 31: He Also Blew Up Alderaan


This week, we’re discussing the last ten stories from FROM A CERTAIN POINT OF VIEW, a collection of 40 stories related to A New Hope, specifically “There Is Another” by Gary D. Schmidt through “Whills” by Tom Angleberger. What might have happened if Yoda had trained Leia instead of Luke? How have more recent Star Wars stories, including “Contingency Plan” by Alexander Freed, fleshed out Mon Mothma’s character? In what ways does “Whills” play with our conceptions of canon? All this and more in our latest episode!

This podcast is NOT spoiler-free, and mentions plot points from Star Wars: Rebels and BLOODLINE by Claudia Gray (which we discussed in our episodes 4-8).

Book Wars Pod explores the Star Wars universe through the franchise’s non-screen media: the canon novels, comics, and video games.
