John Jackson Miller‘s sci-fi serialization Overdraft: The Orion Offensive will come to an end next Tuesday, and so will the $1.99 entry price for the series.

Martha Wells‘ book The Death of the Necromancer is now available for free entirely online at Black Gate Magazine. It’s a good book and worth checking out. Martha has a little bit of trivia on the book here, along with links if you’d like to purchase the eBook version or other stories in the series.

Time to catch up. Here’s what I’ve been listening to and what might be worth checking out.
501stCast: The 501stCast is a podcast ran by members of the 501st Legion and provides extensive coverage of what the 501st Legion is up to and where it’s heading. Episode 72 also featured a nice chat with The Clone Wars voice actor Stephen Stanton who talked about Tarkin, Morallo Eval and Meebur Gascon. He also went over his involvement with the Pink Five Saga. Worth checking out if you’re a Stanton or TCW fan. The episode also has quite a few links in the show notes worth clicking on.

Fifteen Minutes of Fiction: They have a new interview up with Steve Sansweet.
ForceCast: Had a special interview episode with The Clone Wars voice actress Ashley Eckstein. While some of the questions covered familiar ground, others covered new territory. Ashley didn’t give away anything about the lost episodes of season six, but she did touch on her work as Ahsoka and on Her Universe.
Episode 248 is out but I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet, however the title intrigues me, “Who Doesn’t Need More Killiks?”.
Full of Sith: Episode XVII featured an interview with guest Amy Ratcliffe. The hosts ask Amy about how she got involved with Star Wars, her favorite moments and the extent of her work. It’s a nice conversation and worth a listen. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

James Arnold Taylor’s Letter to the Fans (in its entirety)
Last Friday was a red letter date for me as the actor that has had the honor of portraying and bringing voice to one of the most well known characters in not just Star Wars history, but film and televisions as well, Obi-Wan Kenobi, for well over a decade. Red letter in a way that brought both happiness and great sadness. Continue Reading ‘The Clone Wars’ Roundup…

And here’s the news…
George Lucas made an interesting headline this week with his appearance on CBS This Morning announcing that he’s going to start a museum (didn’t we all here Indy yelling “It belongs in a museum!”). You can check out the video here.
In the better late than never category, Chronicle Books had a nice write up on the making of the cover for Vader’s Little Princess. Written by Jeffrey Brown, who also did Vader and Son, Vader’s Little Princess will be out on April 23rd.
In non-Star Wars movie news, Harrison Ford is doing Anchor Man 2 alongside Will Ferrell; Christian Bale and Christopher Nolan are rumored to be in for Justice League; and Iron Man 3 has new trailers and movie posters out.

And here’s today’s news…
Author Aaron Allston has begun work on a new novelette, “Retreads”, which is set in the Strike Force universe (a roleplaying game Aaron worked on in 1998).
Author Kevin J. Anderson did a podcast interview with Bombad Radio. While I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet, those guys over there usually do a pretty good job of digging up the Star Wars trivia with the authors so it’ll probably be worth a listen.
Author Christie Golden will be at Anime and Comic Con in Clarcksville/Ft. Campbell, KY this weekend. If any Star Wars fans are in attendance, be sure to ask her about the upcoming Sword of the Jedi series (we’re dying for updates).
Michael A. Stackpole fans can check out the first four chapters of his new book Mysterious Ways on his site for free: Chapter One, Chapter Two, Chapter Three, Chapter Four. (you can find links at the bottom of each page for purchasing the book, and you can check out our review here)
Ahsoka voice actress Ashley Eckstein did an interview with IGN that you can check out here. It covers the upcoming finale of season five of The Clone Wars.
In video game news, Kotaku has an update on Star Wars 1313. According to them, the game was put on hold after the Disney acquisition and may miss a 2013 release.

The Clone Wars voice actress Ashley Eckstein did a live chat with Star Wars Books the other day covering a multitude of topics. You can check out the full chat here, or scan below for our edited transcript.
Ashley Eckstein: Hi Everyone! Thank you for joining the chat! I am looking forward to your questions! Ask away!
Ashley, my question is simple – do you ever feel like you are bringing in a wider audience to Star Wars with how you have Her Universe and such a powerful character in The Clone Wars? Adding a breath of fresh air to the fanbase so to say?
AE: I do believe that The Clone Wars has introduced Star Wars to a new generation of fans. I also think having a female Jedi like Ahsoka has brought a lot more girls into the franchise. I think Her Universe has made it a lot easier for female fans to be vocal about the fact that they like Star Wars. Continue Reading Ashley Eckstein Live Chat Transcript…
