Today we have a very special interview conducted by Doug McCausland. A couple weeks ago Doug did an outstanding interview with author Kevin J. Anderson covering the 20th anniversary of the Jedi Academy Trilogy. This week Doug continues his series of Star Wars author interviews with Kathy Tyers.


In the early to mid 90’s, Kathy Tyers was one of the most prominent authors of the Bantam-era Star Wars Expanded Universe alongside Timothy Zahn & Kevin J. Anderson. Her first contribution to Star Wars lore was 1994’s The Truce at Bakura, taking place immediately after the events of Return of the Jedi. She would later go on to contribute several short stories to Kevin J. Anderson’s Tales From The… series, including “Prize Pelt: The Tale of Bossk” and “We Don’t Do Weddings: The Band’s Tale”, as well as the New Jedi Order installment Balance Point.

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…

Book Review: ‘Cibola Burn’ by James S.A. Corey

Tags: , ,

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.
