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.
  • Tim Lebbon‘s Mannequin Man and the Plastic Bitch is now available as an eBook.

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.

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond. Be sure to check out the book and comic news. Random House has revealed two new Star Wars books and a bunch of Star Wars comic trade paperback collections for October.

Book News

  • Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void had it’s UK release yesterday, so Star Wars fans across the pond can dig into Tim Lebbon’s enjoyable launch to the beginning of the timeline. Tim has a list of retailers on his website if you need to check them out.
  • Jeffrey Brown has a new book coming out this week: Kids Are Weird. Similar to Darth Vader and Son and Vader’s Little Princess, it features full color artwork with one page comic bits. You can check Amazon’s page which has the look inside option to get a better idea.
  • Random House has updated their product page with two new Star Wars books. Unfortunately, there’s not much info on either. Simply called “Untitled Star Wars #1 by Ballantine” and “Untitled Star Wars #2 by Ballantine“, they’re both listed at 256 pages and have ISBN numbers. The #1 has a September 2 release date and #2 has a November 4 release date. This corresponds somewhat with the mysterious Amazon listing Knights Archive spotted last month for a Jedi Academy Trilogy by Ballantine. Could this mean a shift from Del Rey back to Ballantine for the Star Wars adult novel line?
  • Star Wars artist Dave Dorman is doing a new G.I. Joe art book. You can check out the details here along with a link for orders.

Comic News

  • According to Bleeding Cool, Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso, along with several other reps, visited Lucasfilm last week for some Star Wars discussions. Rumor has it that there will be a “couple monthly series”. Nothing official, but it’s an interesting rumor.
  • Random House has also updated their product page with some new comic trade paperbacks. There’s Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir (October 14), Star Wars: Rebel Heist (October 21), Star Wars Volume 4: A Shattered Hope (October 28), Star Wars Legacy II Volume 4: Empire of One (October 28), and Star Wars Volume 3: Rebel Girl (October 14).

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

Book News

  • The paperback edition of Paul S. Kemp‘s novel The Godborn is out this week, and if you’d like a signed copy, Paul can hook you up.
  • Author Jason Fry did an interview with Views From the Tesseract covering his latest novel The Jupiter Pirates: Hunt for the Hydra.
  • Martha Wells also has a new book out this week, Emilie & the Sky World. She has a full list of retailers on her blog as well as an excerpt from the book.
  • If you’d like a signed copy of Troy Denning‘s upcoming book The Sentinel, you may be in luck.

“With the release of my Forgotten Realms novel, THE SENTINEL, less than a month away, I’ve been receiving a lot of requests for autographed copies. I’m pleased to announce that Janet Waller of the Roseville Barnes and Noble store has graciously agreed to handle mail-order requests. I’ll drive up and sign the books on the release date (April 1 — and no, that’s not a joke), and then she will send the books out.

To place your order, send Janet Waller an email at crm2614@BN.com . Please place your orders ASAP, as this will help her determine how many books to order. (Otherwise, there could be a wait while she restocks.) I believe she can mail to Canada as well as the U.S., but I’m not sure about other countries.” -Troy Denning
