Today we wish a happy birthday to author Paul S. Kemp. Paul is making today extra special by throwing an online book party for his characters Egil and Nix. To participate, Paul is asking readers who have not read his two Egil and Nix books, The Hammer and the Blade and A Discourse in Steel, to go check them out.

For those who have already read them, Paul wants your reviews on Amazon or Barnes & Noble (you can check out our review of The Hammer and the Blade and A Discourse in Steel right here on Roqoo Depot). And for those die hard fans who have already bought and reviewed both books, be sure to share the word.

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • Joining the list of “Untitled” Star Wars books is “Untitled Star Wars Book #3″ (via edelweiss) which is set for a January 13, 2015 release (352 pages, hardcover). This is most likely Kevin Hearne‘s untitled Luke Skywalker novel, the third book in the Empire and Rebellion series. No blurb or description is given for the book. As for the other two “Untitled” Star Wars books, there is still no new updates, however they are not the Star Wars Rebels original novels, as those two have separate listings.

Comic News

  • Predator and Alien fans can check out some sneak peaks at Dark Horse’s upcoming content. Bleeding Cool has an interview with Scott Allie and Joshua Williamson featuring artwork from the Predator comic, and CBR has an interview with Chris Robertson featuring artwork from the Aliens comic.
