Bill Smith's Bibliography & Star Wars Books

Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels

By Bill Smith * Del Rey Books * $18 * ISBN 0-345-39299-X

A comprehensive guide to 100 of the coolest starships and vehicles from the classic Star Wars movies, novels, comic books and games. How does Luke Skywalker's X-wing stack up against the Empire's TIE Interceptor? How deadly were the Empire's Death Stars? What makes the Millennium Falcon the "fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy"? Each entry includes a description of the vehicle or starship, as well as an illustration and detailed diagram.

Available on Amazon.

Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology

By Bill Smith * Del Rey Books * $18 * ISBN 0-345-41413-6

A guide to the gadgets and weapons of the Star Wars universe, from lightsabers, Chewbacca's bowcaster and blasters to holographic imaging systems and Boba Fett's rocket pack. Includes descriptions of hand-held and starship weapons, "everyday" technology, espionage gear and exotic, "one-of-a-kind" items.

Available on Amazon.

Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game, Second Edition, Revised and Expanded

By Bill Smith, Peter Schweighofer, George R. Strayton, Paul Sudlow, Eric S. Trautmann, Greg Farshtey * West End Games * $30 * ISBN 0-87431-435-6

Don't just read the novels, join the action! Take on the role of a Rebel fighter pilot, a Jedi Knight, a smuggler or anything else you can imagine as you and your friends battle the forces of the evil galactic Empire.

Praised for the simplicity and intuitiveness of the D6 role-playing system introduced in the first edition of the game, the Second Edition greatly expanded techniques for cinematic storytelling, added many more skill and character type options, and greatly expanded the scope of the Star Wars roleplaying game to cover all eras, from Republic era to well into the New Republic era, while detailing how to player all types of characters beyond the traditional "Rebels vs. the Empire" roles.

Both editions available on Amazon: I recommend Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game, Second Edition, Revised and Expanded, although the original Second Edition is also available.

Star Wars: Ships of the Fleet: The Galactic Empire

Bill Smith * Little, Brown * ISBN 0-7522-2270-8

An amazing three-dimensional "pop-up" book with a comprehensive guide to the Empire's most deadly starships and vehicles. See the interior of an AT-AT Walker, find out how the many types of TIE fighters stack up in battle...and see, in dramatic fashion, how the Empire's Super Star Destroyer Executor stacks up against the other ships in the fleet!

Still available on Amazon.

Star Wars: Ships of the Fleet: The Rebel Alliance

Bill Smith * Little, Brown * ISBN 0-7522-2275-9

The Rebel Alliance's most powerful combat vehicles and starships are described in this fascinating three-dimensional pop-up book. See the interior of Luke Skywalker's X-wing and the workhorse Y-wing fighter, find out about the Alliance's amazing A-wing and B-wing fighters and learn about the Mon Calamari battle cruisers and their orbiting starship yards!

Still available on Amazon.
