“We Are What They Grow Beyond”: Star Wars and the Extended Universe

I fell in love with Star Wars at the library. The films had been at the edge of my consciousness for most of my childhood—how could I avoid them? The special editions were re-released in theaters the year I turned seven; though I did not see them then, my sister had plenty of action figures […]
