    And a novelization of the movie.
    Speaking of prequel novels and novelizations, they've released a prequel and novelization for Pacific Rim: Uprising.
    There are also two tie-in novels for Solo: A Star Wars Story coming out in the next couple months, Most Wanted, and Last Shot. Most Wanted is a YA novel dealing with Han and his friend Qi'ra, Emilia Clarke's character in the movie, before Solo. Last Shot focuses on Han and Lando at three different points in time, while Lando had the Millenium Falcon, after Han got her but before A New Hope, and after The Original Trilogy.

    I was looking around on Amazon earlier today, and I stumbled across a new Planet of the Apes book, PotA: Ceasar's Story. It's being done from an in universe perspective set in the new movie universe, with the idea being that it is a book that Maurice, Ceasar's Orangutan friend, wrote it for Ceasar's son after the War for The Planet of Apes. It's going to cover the events of the movies and some stuff between them, all told from Maurice's perspective. Maurice was one of my favorite characters from the new movies, so I'm very interested in this.
    @Greg Cox, do you know anything about this, or have any idea if this will be using anything from the movies prequel novels?

    It's being written by Greg Keyes, who wrote those prequel novels, so I wouldn't be surprised if he referenced his own books. :)

    Beyond that, I know nothing.

    Ok, good to know.
    I just found out about a new tie-in line that is about to start, MCU novels. The first one will be Thanos: Titan Consumed by Barry Lyga, which will explore Thanos' life leading up to movies, and will cover the events around his appearances in at least Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy.

    Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War: Thanos: Titan Consumed. Three colons. That's how you know you're reading a real tie-in.

    I tend to follow a pattern that I think I picked up from Marco Palmieri, which is to alternate colons and dashes. For instance, Star Trek: Enterprise -- Rise of the Federation: Patterns of Interference.

    Well, and so did the article in actuality, but that's cheating.

    As the author of Star Trek: The Original Series: Legacies: Book One: Captain to Captain, I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked. :)

    Well, let's not forget triumphs like Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Mission: Gamma: Book One: Twilight!

    Though my usual practice is to precede things like "book" and "part" and "volume" with commas.

    As a fan of as many different punctuation marks in a title as possible, I still think they should have used your title for Vanguard: What Judgments come:

    The Taurus Key: A Crystalline Fairy Tale, Founded Upon The Mysteries of the Shedai and the Oppression of Their Servants. It Was Written for Kollotuul, But Others Should Read It
