More About the Author

I'm the author of The Jupiter Pirates series, published by HarperCollins. In the first book, Hunt for the Hydra, we meet Tycho, Yana and Carlo Hashoone. They're crewers above the privateer Shadow Comet, siblings and competitors. Each wants to be the next captain of their family's starship -- but only one of them will be chosen.

The Jupiter Pirates is part high-seas adventure and part space-age epic -- I've had a blast writing the series and can't wait to share it with people. Officially the Jupiter Pirates books are for kids 8-12, but readers far older than that will enjoy them too.

As for me, I'm a writer, editor, and occasional journalism consultant based in Brooklyn, N.Y, where I live with my wife Emily, my son Joshua and about a metric ton of baseball cards and Star Wars stuff. I've written more than two dozen Star Wars books and short stories for publishers including Random House, DK, Scholastic and Disney Books. Before striking out on my own as an independent writer, I spent more than 12 years at The Wall Street Journal Online, where I wrote the Real Time column about technology and co-wrote The Daily Fix, a daily roundup of great sportswriting. I co-write Faith and Fear in Flushing (, a blog about the New York Mets, with my friend Greg Prince.

If that seems like an odd mix, well, I think so too. But one way or another, I've written or worked with writers nearly all my life. It's all I ever wanted to do, and I'm profoundly grateful that I've been able to do it.

Whether you're writing about a far-off galaxy, a nearby baseball team or the promise of technology, the path to becoming a successful writer is the same: Write every day, learn from other writers and from good editors, push your writing to make sure it's as clear and engaging as possible, and value every form of writing you get to do. And be nice.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Length: 1:23 Mins
I am an avid collector of Lego Star wars sets and minifigures, and was big fan of the original edition of this book. So, when I found out about this updated and expanded edition I preordered right away. I got my copy today, and I'm happy to report that this beautiful and fully expanded edition is as good or better than the original in every way.

This book was released to coincide with the 15th Anniversary of the Lego Star Wars theme. The first edition was published in 2009 (or on the 10th anniversary of the theme), and includes Lego Star Wars sets through 2010. A lot of new sets have been released since then, so this edition provides a much need update. The book includes lots of great things from the original (like the timeline), plus some wonderful new things (like the minifigure gallery) and updates. Here is a list of the key things I liked best about this new edition of the book.

(1) It includes just about everything from the first edition (so no need to go back and buy that book if you don't already own it unless you want that minifigure). Plus, it includes info on all of the sets released since then, INCLUDING everything slated for release in 2014 even if it was not out when the book was released (like the Sandcrawler 75059, Mos Eisley Cantina 75052, AT-AT 75054, and more).

(2) My favorite part is that it still includes the very helpful and chronological 8 page list of all Lego Star Wars sets ever released (with a picture of each box and broken down by episode/series/expanded universe).

(3) Another great part (and an awesome NEW addition to the book) is the 14 page minifigure gallery. It's a great way to see variations of each figure side by side, and also very fun to look through in general.

The book alone is worth the price, as it covers every single LEGO Star Wars release up to the current 2014 sets. In this edition, there is also the inclusion of a minifig gallery that was sorely lacking in the previous edition of the book.

Plus there is the retro Luke Skywalker minifig that is exclusive to this release, which if past, out of print book release minifig prices continue to climb as they have, this book is a fantastic bargain, and for the serious collector you may want to purchase multiple copies for "safe keeping".

Format: Hardcover
‘LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary’ prepared by Simon Beecroft and Jason Fry is an updated and thicker edition of the best-selling book that since 2009 was one of the most common choices for those in love with Lego and The Force.

The original book was released on the 10th anniversary of the Lego Star Wars theme, this one on the 15th anniversary and given how great add-on this book will be in each fan collection we can only guess what awaits us after 5 years.

But back to this book - it is a very good full-colored work that can certainly be recommended to all the fans of Lego Star Wars who still have not bought older edition, but also to those who have the older edition because this is not an example of a book that just wants to draw extra money from fans, being even better than the original.

Book includes all the updates that happened in period of past 5 years such as new sets or some cool updates such as gallery of mini figures which presents on 14 pages all the figures released – a great way to compare figures, realize variations and providing nice help for future purchases. And not to forget, you’ll get Luke Skywalker figure that looks kid of retro, which is great news for collectors.

Of course, you still can find inside all included in 2009 edition such as timeline, list of all released sets together with extensive breakdown of each set and accompanying picture and wealth of useful facts and trivia about the Lego Star Wars Universe.

Also speaking about nice new things, one that was strangely missing from the original was index, which is now included offering an easy way to find quickly what you need.

Overall, with ‘LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary’ updated edition you just cannot miss – a great new release that manages to raise the bar of quality even further by making us to impatiently await the next 5 years to pass.

The Lego Star Wars Visual Dictionary is a MUST HAVE for all Star Wars fans and for the general Lego lover. Lego has combined with the makers of Star Wars to present an amazing array of products and the book does justice to them all. There are pictures and descriptions for all products - old and new. My son, who is autistic, has spent HOURS pouring over the pictures and matching sets to ones he has completed. The book is hardback and has stood up to some pretty serious usage. It has become our "go to" book for car trips! It's a really simple decision: Lego + Star Wars = Awesome!

( Lisa's son is writing this)
About a year ago I saw the first regular visual dictionary on a shelf in B&N ,when I looked inside It was probably the best book I've seen but I didn't get it well because it had none of the 2010-2013 sets. A few months ago in 2014 I had found out about this book and GOT completely excited. Then once May hit I finally got the book which is awesome. ( Everything is AWESOME! Everything is cool once you read this book).

Now going over the book; Like last book this book has a Set timeline and basically just made the old pages ( like Anakin and Obi-Wan's pages) and update them with the new mini-figures and sets. The book also includes data files which states the name, the year it was released, how many pieces there are and the source. Some data files like the Republic Gunship and Death Star also include the dimensions, the minifigure count and the minifigures included. To conserve space the lego group decided to make a set history next to the sets and surprise at the end of the book it contains a minifigure gallery of every Star Wars minifigure. And the exclusive luke is great another exclusive to my collection( not to brag but I have 12 exclusives and 5 more coming).

P.S: In the first dictionary it has a white background and chrome words and in the new one the background is chrome and the words are white
