Harvard astronomers recently speculated that an interstellar object first sighted in 2017 might have been an alien artifact. The object unexpectedly sped up after passing the sun, in a manner the astronomers said was inconsistent with gravitational interactions alone. It’s almost as if this real visitor from “a long time ago” and someplace “far, far away” saw what humans were up to, or possibly scanned Twitter, said “nope,” and hurried off.

We may never know what that interstellar object really is, but if you’re a Star Wars fan, you probably know that universe is much more fully mapped than our own. Here are seven of the most out-there, hilarious, and interesting Star Wars-themed books you can find on Earth today.
