Suvudu posted an interview with author Drew Karpyshyn covering his new book Children of Fire which will be out tomorrow.

The world of Children of Fire seems to be morally ambiguous. As a culture, we seem to have drifted away from simpler ideas of “good guys vs. bad guys”. Why is that? Why did you choose to pursue this direction?

Drew Karpyhsyn: I think there’s more value and interest in characters that don’t fit the classic hero/villain archetypes. A flawless, pure, noble hero can be kind of boring, and it’s impossible for most of us average folks to relate to. Similarly, a purely evil villain comes across as cartoonish. I want to be able to understand and accept the motivations of the bad guy; even if I don’t agree with them, I want to see how his or her actions could seem reasonable from that point of view.

Blurb for ‘Honor Among Thieves’

In case you missed it, Edelweiss has a blurb up for Empire and Rebellion: Honor Among Thieves.

Nebula and Hugo Award nominees Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck-writing as James S. A. Corey-make their Star Wars debut in this old school, action-packed, Space Opera epic. This brand-new, classic adventure stars the irrepressible Han Solo and his new friends, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa, just after the destruction of the Death Star in Star Wars: Episode VI A New Hope!

When a rebel spy needs extraction from under the nose of the Empire, who better to send than master smuggler, Han Solo? But rescuing a friendly spy is just the start of a wild adventure as the intel the spy uncovers leads Han and Leia to an ancient and deadly secret that threatens to be the Empire’s ultimate-and likely successful-weapon against the Rebel Alliance. Add in the chance to lose Luke Skywalker to this horrific threat, and Han and Chewbacca may have finally met a trap even they can’t escape…

Honor Among Thieves is tentatively scheduled for a March 4, 2014 release in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats.
