August 11, 2014 at 6:13 am | Posted in Art, Books, Fantasy, Sci-Fi | Leave a comment

Artist Dave Dorman is one of the few Star Wars artists I know who does an annual sketchbook. This year Dave is offering Leadworks No. 2 which is a 20 page booklet (5.5″x8.5″) featuring a variety of sketches ranging from Star Wars to The Walking Dead. In addition to the sketchbook, Dave is also offering Oil & Water: Xenocide and Oil & Water: Wizardry and Magic. Both are booklets just like Leadworks, but they contain full color images of his paintings. Xenocide focuses on Aliens and Predator whereas Wizardry and Magic is all fantasy based work for companies like Wizards of the Coast and Blizzard. Below are some images of the artwork to give you an idea of what’s inside.

john-jackson-millerJohn Jackson Miller’s upcoming Star Trek novel now has a title and is up for pre-orders. Star Trek: The Next Generation – Takedown is slated for a January 27, 2015 release in paperback. You can put your pre-orders in here on Amazon or Barnes & Noble and check out the blurb below.

An all-new novel of Star Trek: The Next Generation—one of the most popular Star Trek series of all-time, featuring the adventures of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise!

When renegade starships wreak destruction across the quadrant, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise are shocked to discover the mastermind behind this sudden threat: none other than Picard’s protégé and friend, Admiral William T. Riker. The newly minted admiral is on special assignment aboard the U.S.S. Aventine, helmed by Captain Ezri Dax—someone who is no stranger to breaking Starfleet regulations. Her starship is by far the faster vessel…and Riker cannot yield, even to his former mentor. It’s a battle of tactical geniuses and a race against time as Picard struggles to find answers before the quadrant’s great powers violently plunge into total war…

Cibola Burn is the fourth book in James S.A. Corey’s The Expanse series, and like the others, it’s a great character adventure in tome sized format (a respectable 581 pages). With a new planet beyond the ring being colonized, humanity finds itself in conflict over who has the right to this strange alien world. But what no one bothers to ask is whether the aliens ever truly left. It’s up to Holden and his crew to sort things out and, ultimately, try to save as many lives as possible as everything goes to hell. Click here to read our full review.

New Release: ‘Shattered’ by Kevin Hearne

ShatteredShattered by Kevin Hearne is out today. This is the seventh book in The Iron Druid Chronicles.

For nearly two thousand years, only one Druid has walked the Earth—Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company.

Atticus’s apprentice Granuaile is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy.

And Owen has some catching up to do.

Atticus takes pleasure in the role reversal, as the student is now the teacher. Between busting Atticus’s chops and trying to fathom a cell phone, Owen must also learn English. For Atticus, the jury’s still out on whether the wily old coot will be an asset in the epic battle with Norse god Loki—or merely a pain in the arse.

But Atticus isn’t the only one with daddy issues. Granuaile faces a great challenge: to exorcise a sorcerer’s spirit that is possessing her father in India. Even with the help of the witch Laksha, Granuaile may be facing a crushing defeat.

As the trio of Druids deals with pestilence-spreading demons, bacon-loving yeti, fierce flying foxes, and frenzied Fae, they’re hoping that this time, three’s a charm.

Cibola BurnCibola Burn by James S.A. Corey is out today. This marks the fourth book in The Expanse series.

The gates have opened the way to a thousand new worlds and the rush to colonize has begun. Settlers looking for a new life stream out from humanity’s home planets. Ilus, the first human colony on this vast new frontier, is being born in blood and fire.

Independent settlers stand against the overwhelming power of a corporate colony ship with only their determination, courage, and the skills learned in the long wars of home. Innocent scientists are slaughtered as they try to survey a new and alien world. The struggle on Ilus threatens to spread all the way back to Earth.

James Holden and the crew of his one small ship are sent to make peace in the midst of war and sense in the midst of chaos. But the more he looks at it, the more Holden thinks the mission was meant to fail.

And the whispers of a dead man remind him that the great galactic civilization that once stood on this land is gone. And that something killed it.

For more information, ordering links and excerpts, check out the official product page. If you’re in the Santa Monica, CA area, the authors will be there for a book signing at Barnes & Noble at 7:00 PM.
