New Paul S. Kemp book revealed The Hammer and the Blade (non-Star Wars)

Angry Robot Books has announced that author Paul S. Kemp (Crosscurrent, Deceived, Riptide) will be writing a new book entitled The Hammer and the Blade – a Tale of Egil & Nix. The book will be published in July 2012 by Angry Robot Books (a part of Osprey Publishing).

The Hammer and the Blade will introduce you to Egil and Nix, a pair of down-at-heel treasure hunters and incorrigible rogues. Egil is a priest, happy to deliver moral correction with his pair of massive hammers. Nix is a sneak-thief; there’s no lock he cannot open, no serving girl he cannot charm. Between them, they always have one eye for a chance to make money – the other eye, of course, is on the door. Only this time, the treasure they’ve thieved is an important relic of a most sinister and ancient family, who will stop at nothing to get their bloody revenge.

And there’s already a sequel planned! (A Discourse of Steel) You can check out Angry Robot Books website for more information on the announcement. Personally I’m excited to see more Kemp books in the future. If this new series is on par with the Erevis Cale series, then readers will have plenty of good reading material coming there way.

Today Choices of One hits stores. Written by Star Wars author Timothy Zahn, Choices of One comes in at 384 pages and is in hardback format.

The fate of the Rebellion rests on Luke Skywalker’s next move.
But have the rebels entered a safe harbor or a death trap?

Eight months after the Battle of Yavin, the Rebellion is in desperate need of a new base. So when Governor Ferrouz of Candoras Sector proposes an alliance, offering the Rebels sanctuary in return for protection against the alien warlord Nuso Esva, Luke, Leia, Han, and Chewie are sent to evaluate the deal.

Mara Jade, the Emperor’s Hand, is also heading for Candoras, along with the five renegade stormtroopers known as the Hand of Judgment. Their mission: to punish Ferrouz’s treason and smash the Rebels for good.

But in this treacherous game of betrayals within betrayals, a wild card is waiting to be played.

And in case you missed it, you can also get a preview of chapters 1-4 here.

UPDATE: Suvudu conducted a mini-interview with Timothy Zahn that you can read here. Zahn talks about Choices of One and the upcoming Heir to the Empire: The 20th Anniversary Edition.
