The second edition of A Guide to the Star Wars Universe is a reference book written by Bill Slavicsek and published in 1994. It was a revised and expanded version of the earlier first edition and was later followed by a third edition.

The book alphabetically details people, places, things, and events in the Star Wars universe. Most of the entries are quite short, the longest being a little over two pages. Each entry is divided into G-canon and Expanded Universe information, and has sources cited. The second edition also included a brief timeline, and a comparison of sublight speeds in starfighters.
