Star Wars author Timothy Zahn is hanging out in Brazil and over on Facebook he posted some pictures from Sao Paulo. Lo and behold there are pictures of Legends cover for Heir to the Empire, be it in Portuguese. After a little snooping I discovered that artist Marc Simonetti had been commissioned by Aleph Brazil to do a cover for the Heir to the Empire Legends version. As of yet there are no details on whether an English version will be out any time soon and whether it will sport the new cover, but it’s pretty cool looking.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:OMG! Star Wars Trailer” surprisingly doesn’t cover the trailer as much as the title of the episode would lead you to believe. They do however touch on the trailer and some of the controversies people are making a fuss over. Aside from the trailer, they also talk about the Jurassic World trailer, some comments Christian Bale made about playing Batman again, and some anniversaries for Star Trek and the Ewok movies. If you’re burnt out on TFA trailer discussions, this one is still worth checking out as Scott, Tricia and guest Jeff Roney talk a lot more about stuff outside the content of the trailer than say a scene-by-scene dissection. For fans of Assembly of Geeks, Tricia announced that she’ll be leaving the show soon do to time constraints. As a fan myself, it will be sad to see her go. Tricia has been a great part of the show and her, Scott and Jeff make a great trio.

Bombad Radio: Episode 174 features an interview with Star Wars composer Jesse Harlin who worked on Republic Commando, The Force Unleashed, Star Wars Battlefront, Star Wars Galaxies, The Old Republic and Star Wars 1313. He talks about composing, editing and arranging video game music, some of instruments he’s worked with, and even discusses some of the stuff he did for the cancelled Star Wars 1313 game. Sadly that music won’t be coming out, but they were able to share a snippet. Jesse teased that the game would have included Hutt gangster rap. For fans of Star Wars games or RebelForce Radio’s Star Wars Oxygen series, this is an episode worth listening to.

Episode 177 starts out with a live recording of Jeremiah and his wife watching The Force Awakens trailer and giving their initial thoughts, which I have to admit I haven’t heard anyone else do. But the real fun kicks in with Jeremiah’s interview with voice actor Corey Burton who talks about getting into the business, the voices and shows he’s done, coming up with the voices for Ziro the Hutt and Cad Bane, as well as his work for Disney and DC Comics.

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.

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.
