    Like the above responses, there are hundreds of books that take place after SW Episode 6. A trilogy I highly recommend is the Thrawn Trilogy written by Timothy Zahn ( Heir To The Empire, Dark Force Rising and The Last Command) which takes place approximately 5 years after Return of the Jedi.

    There are a million books after Episode 6. The best ones to read that are canon are usually in series. The Thrawn trilogy, and New Jedi Order are great. Avoid the Dark Nest though, its utter crap. Legacy of the Force is also great but you'd need to know alot of backstory to fully understand whats going on. These are all series.

    the best place to start is the Timothy Zahn trilogy, its about the rest of the grand admirals in the imperial fleet and how they won't surrender just because the emperor is dead, also Luke starts to rebuild the Jedi order. There are probably well over a hundred books. Some are great and some are awful.

    good luck

    Tons, buddy. My boyfriend has over 30 Star Wars books all approved by George Lucas. You can find the books on Wikipedia. Put in the words "Star Wars Books" and they'll come up. Good Luck
