The team continues their look at books, with a deep dive into collecting guides.
There are so many collecting books out there – from outdated price guides and encyclopedias, through to volumes on some very niche areas of the hobby – there really is something for every collector.
The boys look at what makes a good collecting guide and discuss some of the standout authors, while each bringing three books to the table.
Discover the guides that had an impact on them through the years, along with the ones that are just among their favourites.
Without execption, Stephen J Sansweet's collecting books have all been visual guides, so what better way to celebrate his work than with a visual podcast?
We've lovingly grafted a wealth of imagery onto what was already a great interview, to make this special chat even more special.
Extra special guest, Stephen J Sansweet, joins Stuart and Dan to delve into the many books he has written.
Head of Fan Relations at Lucasfilm for 15 years, Stephen was author or co-author of 18 books, 16 of which were Star Wars books.
From Concept To Screen To Collectible was the catalyst book for the Star Wars collecting hobby and impacted everyone who purchased it back in 1992. Since then, he has released action figure guides, poster books, encyclopedias, vaults, price guides, scrapbooks and quote books. And take it from us, every one of them is a must in any Star Wars library.
We discuss the impact of both From Concept To Screen To Collectible and The Tomart's Guide in depth, as well as looking at Steve's other literary works. This is a fascinating insight into a much loved pioneer of our hobby and an essential listen for any collector.

It's five years after Return of the Jedi: the Rebel Alliance has destroyed the Death Star, defeated Darth Vader and the Emperor, and driven the remnants of the old Imperial Starfleet to a distant corner of the galaxy. Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting Jedi twins. And Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of Jedi Knights.
In 1991, Star Wars burst back into fans' lives with the release of the Timothy Zahn novel, Heir To The Empire, which began the start of a trilogy of books, affectionately known as 'The Thrawn Trilogy'.
Stuart and Craig are joined by Mark Mulcaster and Mark Newbold to discuss this books and the impact they had on the Star Wars Universe. Join us as we reminisce about characters old and new, a plot which perhaps should have been the sequel trilogy on screen and just how much these books changed the Star Wars landscape.
