Ballantine Books is a publishing company founded in 1952 by Ian Ballantine, and his wife Betty Ballantine. It was later purchased by Random House in 1973.

Del Rey, which publishes all Star Wars novels (except for those originally published by Bantam Spectra between 1991 and 1999), debuted in 1977 as the science-fiction imprint of Ballantine Books.

The first edition of Star Wars: From the Adventures of Luke Skywalker was the only Star Wars book published directly by Ballantine Books.
