Del Rey Books and Lucas Licensing have renewed their agreement to continue publishing more original novels set in the STAR WARS universe. The new extension extends Del Rey's contract all the way to December 2008 and covers 18 new novels. Beginning in 2005, each year will see three new hardcover and three new paperback STAR WARS books published by Del Rey. Additionally, the company will also release two oversized non-fiction paperbacks each year.

On the official STAR WARS message forums (and first reported by TheForce.net), Sue Rostoni, the Managing Editor of Lucasfilm Licensing, revealed that nine of the new novels will "form a [series] set in the Old Republic era, somewhere between 1,000 and 4,000 years before SW: ANH." Rostoni also added that Lucasfilm is hoping to sign three authors to write the nine Old Republic books.
