For a while Star Wars author Aaron Allston has been pretty scarce on the web, but Saturday he opened up a new blog and announced a comeback. His first post was a run down of his current state of affairs including what writing projects he has in the works. He also said he might try to be more active on Twitter and Facebook which would please a lot of Star Wars fans out there. You can check out Aaron’s new blog here.

And in case you’d like to check out some other Star Wars authors on the web, we’ve compiled the following list of links. Enjoy! Continue Reading Aaron Allston’s New Blog…

As part of the Stand Up to Cancer campaign, Star Wars author Jason Fry, a long time Mets fan, trooped with the 501st’s Empire City Garrison as they invaded Citi Field. Jason wrote up a nice article on the event that goes into the trial and tribulations of donning the armor. Whether it’s the difficulties of seeing anything through a stormtrooper helmet, or just the exhilaration of being on the field with his favorite baseball team, the article was a nice read and I recommend checking it out. You can read it here on the Faith and Fear of Flushing blog.

Jason Fry is the author of numerous Star Wars RPG books and guides such at Star Wars: The Essential Atlas and the upcoming Star Wars: Essential Guide to Warfare (which will be released on May 22, 2012). If you’d like to learn more about Jason Fry, you can check out his website or follow him on Twitter.

Suvudu posted an interview this morning with Betsy Mitchell, the editor of Timothy Zahn’s Heir to the Empire, one of the co-contributor to the annotations in Heir to the Empire 20th Anniversary Edition, and the Editor in Chief at Del Rey books. In the interview, Betsy talks briefly about her attendance at Dragon*Con, choosing tie-in writers, Mara Jade, and her favorite Star Wars film. Unfortunately there’s no solid word or whether we’ll see an annotated version of Dark Force Rising yet.

SS: You are the Editor in Chief of Del Rey books, privy to Jedi secrets. Will the sequels to Heir to the Empire also receive the annotated and hardcover treatment?

BM: The Jedi Council tells me that if there’s a big enough demand for the anniversary edition of HEIR TO THE EMPIRE, we’d love to follow up with the others.

You can read the full interview here.
