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

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: “Guardian of the Plastic Galaxy” covers the newly released trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy which, I agree, looks awesome. In this episode they also have a really nice interview with Brian Stillman, the creator of Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys, a documentary covering the old Kenner Star Wars action figures. Other topics in this show stick with the theme of movies like Her, Fantastic Four, and The Lego Movie.

“Animated & Geeky Characters” episode kicks off with a discussion on laser tag before heading into old cartoons, tv shows like Firefly and Big Bang Theory, and recent tv news like a Robin Hood and Flash remake. The show caps off with a RoboCop review. Since I haven’t seen RoboCop yet, I skipped the end of the podcast, but I definitely enjoyed the rest.

Big Pop Fun: Episode 99 is another James Arnold Taylor “Podcaster in Training” episode. This time James talks with Jason Surrell, a Disney imagineer. Jason talks about working for Disney, writing the history of the Haunted Mansion, meeting the Avengers on set, and working with Johnny Depp. It’s a very cool interview and worth checking out.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501st Cast: Episode 79 catches up on what the 501st Legion has been up to, gives a behind the scenes on the shooting of the Star Wars Mythbusters episode, some nice highlights of charities they’ve been able to help recently, and a cool interview with Jimmy Mac delving into the future of Star Wars.

Bombad Radio: Episode 127 has a real treat for Star Wars: The Clone Wars fans as they interview Brent Friedman, one of the writers for the show. They cover the start of his career with Dark Skies, Mortal Kombat and The Twilight Zone. Brent shares some interesting info on IMDB (Internet Movie Database) which I had no idea about. Then they dive into TCW. From working with George Lucas and Dave Filoni, to writing two more seasons that may never see the light of day, there’s a lot for Star Wars fans to enjoy.

Full of Sith: Episode LII features special guest Mark Newbold who talks about the odd and ends of running a Star Wars news site, and dives into a smorgasbord of topics. They cover Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 6, Star Wars Rebels, the possibility of more Star Wars shows on Netflix and more. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

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

Book News

  • Star Wars artist Grant Gould will be illustrating How to Draw Star Wars Rebels. No word on a release date yet.

Comic News

  • Randy Stradley gave an update on Star Wars trade paperback and omnibus collections over on the Dark Horse forums.

The second Dark Times Omnibus is indeed our final scheduled Omnibus. We will produce trades for all of the current series, but there is not enough time within our remaining license to publish Omnibuses. Dark Horse’s goal, obviously, must be to sell as much of our inventory before our final cut-off date.

There may — and I stress may be one more hardcover book before the end of the year. News about that when I have it.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: “The Fangirls Take Over” Episode replaces Admiral 80′s with Teresa Delgado as they talk Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Marvel movies, The Big Bang Theory and more. Lots of fun discussion and great addition to your playlist.

Full of Sith: Episode L covers the little moments of Star Wars as Mike, Bryan and Bobbie talk about the small things that really impact them when they watch the films. From the Ewok warrior crying over his fallen comrade to Luke staring off at the twin sunsets, they cover moments from all of the films.

Episode LI is a Valentine’s themed episode as Mike, Bryan, Bobbie and special guest Amy Ratcliffe discuss who their Star Wars Valentine would be and some of the ways they’ve shared Star Wars with others. Definitely some fun and funny discussions in this one.

Geek Out Loud: Episode 82 features a really nice interview with James Arnold Taylor. Steve Glosson breaks away from typical JAT interviews by pretty much avoiding Star Wars completely and focusing on James’ other work, including his new book JAT 365. If you’re a James Arnold Taylor fan, you’ll want to give this one a listen. The interview starts around 1:09:00. Afterwards, Steve and James do bad impressions theater which is kind of fun. They do the Death Star meeting scene but with Doc Brown, Bane, Fred Flintstone and Bod Dylan. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond. Lots of news this week with Star Wars Rebels, but also a lot of other news in the book realm and elsewhere.

Book News

  • This one falls more under rumor than solid news as it’s a very strange find, but Knights Archive spotted an Amazon listing for an untitled Ballantine Star Wars book with “(Star Wars: Jedi Academy)” in the listing. The hardcover has a November 4, 2014 release date with LucasBooks as the publisher. Placeholder mess up? Re-release of Kevin J. Anderson’s classic trilogy? Or something genuine and new? Who knows, but it’s interesting.
  • Other new listings on Amazon include Star Wars Costumes by Brandon Alinger coming from Chronicle Books in October, and the next book in the Star Wars Art series Star Wars Art: Posters which is also set for October.
  • Kevin Hearne has posted tour dates for his next Iron Druid Chronicles book Shattered.
  • The cover for Jason Fry‘s next book has been revealed – The Jupiter Pirates: Curse of the Iris.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 124 features an interview with author Richard Lee Byers covering his latest book, The Reaver, which is part of the Forgotten Realms The Sundering series. As with most of Bombad Radio’s interviews, this one is really good. While spoiler free, they still dive into the nature and subject matter of the book, touch on Richard’s career experience in psychology (and how that has helped or not helped his career), and take a look behind the scenes at the creation of The Sundering series.

Episode 122 features an interview with Benton Jew, one of the storyboard artists for The Phantom Menace, and a longtime ILM employee. Benton talks about storyboarding, working with George Lucas and how he differs from other directors, designing Edgar for Men In Black, and creating Jedi Master Oppo Rancis.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode #12 has a special interview with James Arnold Taylor. While James has been making the rounds on various podcasts, Cory and Dan manage to cover some new topics and angles as they get James to talk about how the events in the The Clone Wars changed Anakin and Obi-Wan’s relationship in the overall story. Fans of Obi-Wan will not want to miss this episode. They also get around to James’ new book, JAT 365 and how that idea came about, before looping back into Star Wars and some intriguing discussion on familiar religious elements and motifs in the films.
