Nancipants spotted this on Twitter and I have to kick myself for totally skimming over the last part. Over on Facebook, Timothy Zahn posted that he’s finally finished his upcoming book Cobra Slave (the latest addition to the Cobra series). The part that I missed was that he mentioned he’s putting the finishing touches on the outline for his next Star Wars book.

“Anyway, the Cobra Rebellion trilogy is now off and running. Next task: revisions to my outline for the next Star Wars book.” -Timothy Zahn

You can check out the post here on Timothy Zahn’s Facebook page.

Rowena Cory Daniells has an interview with another Star Wars writer, this time the incredibly talented comic writer Tom Taylor. There is also the opportunity to win a free copy of Tom’s graphic novel The Deep. The interview covers a range of topics from Tom’s good old days in school to Star Wars canon, comedy, and his other projects.

Q: Rombies (written by Tom Taylor, illustrated by Skye Ogden, Colours by Mikiko Ponczeck) is a historical paranormal tale set in ancient Rome. What inspired you to set a story in ancient Rome? Have you always been fascinated by its history?

Skye Ogden inspired me. Honestly, this was originally his idea. I just ran with it, and I’m very glad I did. Gestalt actually asked me to write this very early on in our working relationship and I said no. I’m not a massive horror fan and I wasn’t sure this was the project for me. The night after I said no, I had a dream about Gladiators fighting zombie lions beneath the Coliseum. I called them the very next morning to say yes. I wanted to see Zombie Lions come to un-life. We made that happen. Where we plan to go next is epic.

I highly recommend checking this interview out. It includes some pretty fun humor, and the part that covered The Example was enough to convince me to go out and buy it. Click here to read the full interview and for a chance to win The Deep.

Dark Horse Comics posted a short video that explores a 3D model of an upcoming Star Wars ship designed by Chris Scalf. Chris has done cover art for Legacy, Purge, Invasion, and Blood Ties (as well as the inside art for Blood Ties). No details were given on who the ship belongs to, but it has been temporarily coined the “space biscuit.” You can check out the video here.
