Star Wars: The Old Republic has posted an excerpt from the upcoming novel Revan on their Facebook page.

Scourge finally understood why Nyriss and the others wanted to take the Emperor down. Destroying your enemies— even destroying a planet— was understandable. But this wasn’t simple destruction. It was annihilation; obliteration. The very fabric of the Force had been shredded. Anyone capable of turning an entire planet into a nihilistic abomination had to be completely mad.

You can check out their post here. Revan will be released on November 15, 2011. Previous Excerpts: mini-#1, mini-#2, chapter 1

Suvudu Interviews Riptide author Paul S. Kemp

Suvudu has posted an interview with Star Wars: Riptide author Paul S. Kemp. The questions range from the characters to aspects of time travel in Crosscurrent, and they even ask a few questions eerily similar to our own interview.

Khedryn reminds me a lot of Han Solo, and I somehow doubt this was an accident. What were your sources of inspiration, whether real-world or GFFA, for the characters of Khedryn and Marr?

The Han comparison is fair, though I think any rakish character on the edge of the law who appears in the EU is inevitably going to remind folks of Han.  I think we’re all a bit too ready to see that comparison, though, and its prevalence probably speaks more to the power of Han-as-archetype than anything else.

It’s honestly hard for me to go back and figure out from where I particular character sprang.  Khedryn has some Captain Mal from Firefly in him certainly, and the dynamic between Khedryn and Marr has a bit of a parallel in various buddy films/books.

I regard Khedryn a scrappy, impulsive, hardscrabble underdog, and Marr as the reserved, gifted brains of the outfit, the Yin to Khedryn’s Yang.

You can check out the full interview here.

However, the spoiler questions have been placed at the very end of the interview for those who are avoiding spoilers and there’s a nice warning to give you a heads up. Without further ado, here is our Star Wars author interview with Paul S. Kemp.
