List of Star Wars books

This is a list of Star Wars novels, novellas, and short stories. Beginning with the release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Lucasfilm has divided its titles by era with symbols designating such. Consequently this list does not include journals, graphic novels, or comic books. A complete list of Star Wars comic books and graphic novels is in the article Star Wars Comic Books.

This list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it.

This list is split into two categories:

CANON The new primary Star Wars canon includes all the movie episodes, the television shows Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, and books published after April 2014. These stories are coordinated by the Lucasfilm Story Team to be consistent with both each other and the upcoming films.

LEGENDS These books are part of the original Star Wars Expanded Universe, and vary in levels of canonicity. The new films will not be based on these stories, but some parts may still be incorporated into the films.

Notes
  • (E) stands for an ebook novella, which is found only online or combined with other books.
  • (A) means that the novel is also available as an audiobook, which is found also online or combined with other books i.e. audible.com
  • (Y) stands for young reader books, which are usually shorter than normal Star Wars books.
  • (BBY) & (ABY) stand for Before and After the Battle of Yavin, which occurs at the end of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
