Ghostwritten by Alan Dean Foster, but credited to George Lucas, it was first published on November 12, 1976, by Ballantine Books. In later years, it was republished under the title Star Wars: A New Hope to reflect the retroactive addition of a subtitle to the film in 1981. |
From the start there were rumors that a ghostwriter wrote the novel, in the preface to the 1995 reissue Lucas explained the background and revealed Foster's identity.
