2015 Publishing Retrospective: A Galaxy of Possibilities: Representation and Storytelling in Star Wars

Star Wars has had a significant place in my nonfiction and academic work for many years, so publishing a collection of essays about different parts of the franchise was a natural choice.

I released a New Revised Edition of this book in both Kindle and Print last Fall, with extra chapters and updated content.
