Jedi News Interviews Tim Lebbon

On top of our interview with Tim Lebbon, Jedi News also has an interview with the upcoming Star Wars author. Tim talks about how he got the offer, his thoughts on jumping into Star Wars, and a little bit about the main character, Lanoree, for Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void.

Without giving anything away about the story, in the broadest sense what are your hopes for Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void? Are you hoping for the opportunity to plant your flag in this era and world-build, much like John Jackson Miller did in the Knights of the Old Republic era, or Ostrander and Duursema in the Legacy era or are you hoping to scribe a rollicking adventure tale?

TL: I like to think a bit of both. My main character is very much of the Dawn of the Jedi era (without giving too much away…), and she’s someone who could become very involved in the era-changing events. At the same time, Into the Void will be an action-packed adventure novel. So I’m hoping fans will get a lot from this book … new insights into the Dawn of the Jedi era, a new character who they can get excited about and want to follow into further tales, and a page-turning adventure.

Click here to read the full interview, it’s definitely worth checking.

One of the stranger things I’ve seen amongst Star Wars Celebration VI news is a mashup of Star Wars and Power Puff Girls called Power of the Force Girls. Created by Lin Zy, this trailer and opening credits serves as a teaser for the first episode which will be debuted at CVI.

If you’d like more Power of the Force Girls, you can head on over to their official website.

Geek Life Interviews Paul S. Kemp

Geek Life posted an interview with author Paul S. Kemp on Friday. The interview asks twenty questions that vary from “If you were a beer, what brand would you be and why?” to ‘Paul, other than roleplaying, what is the geekiest thing about you?” Of course they also cover Paul’s latest novel The Hammer and the Blade.

Did you establish magical cannon in the novel, or did you just MSU (Make Stuff Up) as you went along?

PSK: I did establish some canon, but I want (and did) keep it very loose. Magic systems are fine and work well in lots of books. But I personally love the idea of magic as this kind of nearly inscrutable force/tool utilized by practitioners in many different ways. Think of Howard’s Conan stories, or the Thieves’ World anthologies: In those, magic and sorcerers come in all kinds of shapes and flavors. I really like that as an approach. Gives the world a real sense of wonder.

There’s a pretty good spectrum of questions, so it’s worth checking out. Click here to read the full interview.
