Book News

  • Kevin J. Anderson and Timothy Zahn will be part of a six author team writing tie-in novellas for Heroes Reborn. The first novella will be out in September.
  • Jedi News provided an update on Roger Christian’s upcoming book Cinema Alchemist. There is currently a crowdfunding project to raise money for a feature film version of his short film Black Angel. Part of the crowdfunding is signed copies of his book.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Big Beautiful Podcast: Episode 18 features an interview with author Christie Golden as they discuss her novel Star Wars: Dark Disciple, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the prequels. This being my first time listening to this podcast, I was impressed with the sound quality and the hosts had some good questions which makes it worth checking out. I might be listening to some more episodes of this podcasts, especially if I can find some more Star Wars interviews.

Coffee With Kenobi: Rebels Reactions: The Siege of Lothal features Cory, Dan and Jeff as they discuss the episode with a nice, thorough breakdown. There’s a lot of thematic coverage that dives deep into the underlying story and the connective tissue of the premiere. With Cory, Dan and Jeff directing the discussion, it’s a dynamic trio.

Book Chat with Christie Golden has a nice, spoiler light discussion with the author of Dark Disciple. Dan and Cory do a great job as interviewers digging into some good subjects. Definitely a good one to check out.

Episode 39 begins with a donation thing they’re doing. The Bearded Trio provides an update on Jurassic World and the box office records it’s broke along with other Spielberg news. They talk about Star Wars SDCC exclusives before diving into their main topic: the music of Star Wars. For this segment they bring on guest Steve Torok whose music they use for the podcast. Ending things off is some listener feedback. Another great episode for Star Wars fans. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

dark-disciple-key-artHere’s a teaser from Star Wars: Dark Disciple by Christie Golden which will be out July 7th. Get ready for hell of a story.

For years, the galaxy-wide conflict known as the Clone Wars has raged. The struggle between the rightful government of the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems has claimed the lives of untold billions.

The Force-wielding Jedi, for millennia the guardians of peace in the galaxy, have been thwarted at nearly every turn by the Separatists and their leader, the Sith Lord Count Dooku.

With the war showing no signs of ending, and the casualties mounting each day, the Jedi must consider every possible means of defeating their cunning for. Whether some means are too unthinkable—and some allies too untrustworthy—has yet to be revealed…
