Old School Superheroes by Derick James
Star Wars: X-wing is a nine book series (10 if you count the last book that was released in 2012, almost 13 years after the last one) of Star Wars novels by Michael A. Stackpole and Aaron Allston. Stackpole’s contributions cover the adventures of a new Rogue Squadron formed by Wedge Antilles, while Allston’s focus on Wraith Squadron, another creation of Antilles’. The first seven novels take place 6.5-7.5 years ABY (After the Battle of Yavin). Isard’s Revenge takes place 9 years ABY, and Starfighters of Adumar takes place 12–13 years ABY.
While the first eight books are largely continuous, the first four form a complete story arc (being continuous works of Michael A. Stackpole), and the next three form another complete arc (being continuous works of Aaron Allston). Isard’s Revenge mostly refers back to characters and situations created in Stackpole’s first four novels. Starfighters of Adumar focuses on a few major characters (including, several officers from Rogue Squadron, namely: Wedge Antilles, Tycho Celchu, Wes Janson, and Hobbie Klivian). Like the other eight novels, it details the adventures of pilots in an X-wing squadron, but it is often considered to be a book of its own that shares little resemblance or continuity with the rest of the series.
At Star Wars Celebration V in 2010 a tenth novel in the series, Mercy Kill, was announced. It was released on August 7, 2012.

If you haven’t read these books, I can really recommend them. I’ve read them twice (except the last one), and I can definately say they’re worth every cent.
