Here is this week’s Around the Web.

Book News

  • For horror fans, you might be familiar with the Australian horror flick Wolf Creek. Not only is the movie getting a sequel in February, but a book series as well. Penguin Books will be releasing Wolf Creek: Origin February 1st, a prequel to the original film. The book will be by authors Greg Mclean and Aaron Sterns who are also the writers of the films. Alongside that will be Wolf Creek: Desolation Game by Greg Mclean and Brett McBean. Like Origin, it’s a prequel novel. Both are being published over in Australia so I’m not sure when they’ll be available elsewhere, however Amazon does have a US eBook listing for Origin and Desolation Game with a January 2nd release.
  • Jason Fry did a nice Q&A for a young fan. In his letter, he included a mention for three new Star Wars books he’s got coming out and one that’s on hold.
  • Martha Wells has a nice year end wrap-up post for fans wanting to make sure they didn’t miss out on anything.
  • Paul S. Kemp talked a little about The Godborn and Egil & Nix over on Fantasy Book Critic.
  • Plus an update on The Sentinel by Troy Denning, “Just finished proofreading the galleys for my Sundering novel, THE SENTINEL (due out in April). Boy, it’s fun to be in the Realms again!”
  • Kevin J. Anderson is also holding a bad joke contest for his Dan Shamble, Zombie PI character McGoo on Facebook.

Ostrander Tackles The Cheetah

This September DC Comics is doing a special Villains Month where all the titles in the New 52 will feature villain centric story one-shots. Each issue will also feature a “3D motion image” cover. Of importance to Star Wars comic fans is that comic writer John Ostrander will be writing one of the issues: Wonder Woman #23.1: The Cheetah.

“I’ve spent a lot of time in my career among the, shall we say, wounded psyches of the bad guys. Although, I must say, Cheetah is pretty messed up…I think Cheetah is an exciting character to work with. Very primal, almost feral. Ferocious. Plus, she still has Barbara Minerva’s mind – a very intelligent woman. This, I think, makes her scary.” -John Ostrander

The art for Wonder Woman #23.1: The Cheetah will be by Victor Ibanez. Here’s the synopsis…

The Cheetah has clawed her way out of Belle Reve, and is hungry for blood—but before she steps up as one of the Secret Society’s most powerful generals, she has a personal score to settle! Learn the truth about the cult of Hippolyta, her vendetta against Wonder Woman, and just how far she’ll go to prove that she’s the most dangerous predator on Earth!
