Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 82 has a complete rundown on 501st Legion events and con reports (a great way to catch up on what they’ve been up to and to get an idea of just what the 501st does) plus they have a nice little treat with audio clips of all the special Star Wars actor messages that were done for The Empire Strikes Back.

Assembly of Geeks:Taking Geek Characters to Court” starts out with Scott’s thoughts on Godzilla (pretty lite on spoilers) then cuts over to their special guest Jessica Mederson (Legal Geeks) who they talk with about Marvel, Star Wars, Samuel Jackson, and some fun geek legality ‘what ifs’. Note that Tricia is absent on this episode, but it’s still a good episode and worth checking out. Jessica turned out to be a really fun guest and I look forward to her returning in the future.

Bombad Radio: Episode 149 is yet another outstanding interview, this time with Star Wars author John Jackson Miller. John talks a little about his upcoming Star Wars Rebels novel A New Dawn, how the project got started, coordinating with the story group and later finding out the canon news and the new state of the EU. I thought it was very interesting to hear that he started the book not knowing it was going to end up being the first official canon novel. It’s also interesting to hear that he doesn’t consider this to just be a prequel story for the show but a fully fledged story anyone can jump into and enjoy. Plus he mentions how cool it is to finally write about TIE fighters. The hosts go one to ask John some questions on KOTOR, Knight Errant, Kenobi, the Lost Tribe, and then traverse into a very cool discussion on comics and the comic industry. I highly recommend giving this one a listen and be sure to check out John’s comic book site Comichron.

‘A New Dawn’ Mini-excerpt

Star Wars Books posted a mini-excerpt from John Jackson Miller’s upcoming novel A New Dawn.

It was time to move. Hera picked out the identifying transponder signal of a ship in the convoy. One button-push later, her ship was that vessel, as far as anyone trying to watch traffic was concerned. With practiced ease, she weaved her freighter into the chaotic flood of cargo ships heading to the moon. None of these guys can fly worth a flip, she thought. It was just as well it wasn’t a recruiting trip. She probably wouldn’t have found anyone worth her time.

A New Dawn will be out on September 2, 2014 in hardcover and digital formats. For more information, you can check out Random House’s official product page.

A New Dawn Rises

star-wars-a-new-dawn-by-john-jackson-millerAuthor John Jackson Miller shared some info on his newly announced Star Wars Rebels book A New Dawn over on his blog as well as his trip to Lucasfilm to film a EU appreciation video along with Timothy Zahn.

The news is out! I can at last share the project I’ve been working on this fall and winter: STAR WARS: A NEW DAWN is my new hardcover adult novel release, set for release this September from Random House/Del Rey!

The novel (my first Star Wars work since Kenobi) is set several years after Star Wars: Episode III — and several years before the upcoming animated television series Star Wars: Rebels. As you can see from the cover, two of the main characters of that series, Kanan and Hera, have major roles in the book. This is the first novel integrating input from the Lucasfilm Story Group, which manages story concepts across all media, and so in addition to working with Random House’s team I both got inspiration and feedback from the series’ executive producers, Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg, and Greg Weisman, as well as Pablo Hidalgo, Jennifer Heddle, and Leland Chee.

One of the warring parties has simply vanished
