Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Art New

  • Dave Dorman had a nice update for his Star Wars fans, “Because I am not going to SW Celebration this year, I don’t want my fans, old and new, to miss out on any Dorman SW prints. So for one week prior to Celebration, I will have a sale on my SW artist proofs. This will probably run from April 4-12. Keep it tuned here on FB for more as we get closer. I am working on a new small oil painting of DARTH MAUL. I will have that to show and sell towards the end of the week.” You can watch Dave paint Darth Maul right here.

Book News

  • Author Jason Fry has posted part 1 and part 2 of his author notes for Imperial Justice.
  • Update from author Paul S. Kemp via Facebook, “In vague writing news, finished a novel outline and am now pondering a short story for a cool antho.” That novel outline may or may not be related to the tie-in novel he mentioned he was working on in his January reddit AMA.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 64 kicks off with news, some The Last Jedi stuff, scene descriptions, and then they get to what may be the best Star Wars holiday of all, St. Panaka Day! They celebrate Captain Panaka like no other with all of his dialog from The Phantom Menace, rating each line on grumpiness which turns out to be really fun. They talk about the character, and even go into why he wasn’t in Attack of the Clones. Excellent episode.

Blast Points: Episode 65 is Jason and Gabe geeking out on Star Wars Rebels “Twin Suns.” This one is fun from the get go. They talk about how Obi-Wan knows Ezra’s name, the duel, how perfect Obi-Wan is, Luke being the chosen one, and the glimpse of Luke. Great episode.

Bombad Radio: What If with The Witcher features Jeremiah and Chris Cannon as they discuss the possibility of a movie of The Witcher with lots of fan casting. Should it be based off the books or the games, and who would play who? Good episode for fans of the series. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Book Review: ‘The Binding’ by Nicholas Wolff

March 21, 2017 at 12:01 am | Posted in Books, horror, Reviews | Leave a comment

Taking a new twist on zombie stories can be a bold move, and actually coming up with an idea that’s novel and interesting is no small feat. However, a great idea doesn’t always make for a good story if the author can’t pull it off. Click here to read our full review of The Binding.
