iyrhujMarvel has released the first teaser poster for the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which is said to be more of a sequel to The Avengers itself than Iron Man 3 and the upcoming Thor: The Dark World, have been. The Marvel sequel is reportedly introducing The Falcon and Agent 13 into their Cinematic World, and features Captain America and the Black Widow teaming up to confront The Winter Soldier, aka Bucky Barnes, played by Sebastian Stan in the first Captain America film.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, Cobie Smulders, Robert Redford, Anthony Mackie, and Samuel L Jackson. It is due out on April 4th, 2014.

Today Troy Denning’s Crucible is out in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats. If you’re in the Roseville, MN area, be sure to stop by Barnes & Noble around 7:00 PM to meet Troy Denning in person.

Synopsis:

Han Solo, Leia Organa Solo, and Luke Skywalker return in an all-new Star Wars adventure, which will challenge them in ways they never expected—and forever alter their understanding of life and the Force.

When Han and Leia Solo arrive at Lando Calrissian’s Outer Rim mining operation to help him thwart a hostile takeover, their aim is just to even up the odds and lay down the law. Then monstrous aliens arrive with a message, and mere threats escalate into violent sabotage with mass fatalities. When the dust settles, what began as corporate warfare becomes a battle with much higher stakes—and far deadlier consequences.

Now Han, Leia, and Luke team up once again in a quest to defeat a dangerous adversary bent on galaxy-wide domination. Only this time, the Empire is not the enemy. It is a pair of ruthless geniuses with a lethal ally and a lifelong vendetta against Han Solo. And when the murderous duo gets the drop on Han, he finds himself outgunned in the fight of his life. To save him, and the galaxy, Luke and Leia must brave a gauntlet of treachery, terrorism, and the untold power of an enigmatic artifact capable of bending space, time, and even the Force itself into an apocalyptic nightmare.

New Release: ‘Overdraft: The Orion Offensive’

John Jackson Miller’s science fiction serialization Overdraft: The Orion Offensive wraps up with Episode 8 today. The complete eBook edition is now available on Amazon, and readers can also pre-order the collected paperback edition which will be a whopping 400+ pages.

After an egotistical stock trader for one of the twenty-second century’s biggest corporations gets greedy and loses his employer a fortune, he has two options: go to jail or make the money back before anyone notices. Unfortunately, the only place such profits can be found is the galactic frontier, a region so dangerous it’ll take an uneasy alliance with a crew of rugged mercenaries to keep him alive and in the black.

You’d have to be insane to trade with the violent denizens of the Orion Arm, but with just one hundred days to recoup $100 billion, Jamie Sturm is feeling a little crazy. Standing between Jamie and a variety of agonizing deaths is Surge Team Sigma, the squad of power-armored mercenaries tasked with protecting him. Their last job ended in disaster thanks to Jamie’s scheming, and, led by the implacable Bridget Yang, the team is determined to keep the hapless Jamie alive long enough to fix their reputation. That is, assuming they can ignore their own growing desire to flush the annoying tagalong out of the nearest airlock.
