I’m a sucker for a good mythology retelling, so I’m keeping an eye on BBC’s Atlantis.  The series, filmed in Wales and Morocco, will be available to the U.S. on BBC America, Supernatural Saturday, starting sometime this fall, 2013.  BBC has put out a trailer, and while the entire Greek mythology certainly has huge potential,  it’s really hard to tell if this is going to be a winner or a not-so-great retooling.

‘Razor’s Edge’ Micro-Excerpt #2

Star Wars Books has posted micro-excerpt #2 for Razor’s Edge.

Terae said, “If Alderaan had kept to its principles of peace and neutrality, the Empire would not have attacked.”

And if the Empire had not been corrupt, venal, and determined to destroy any hint of resistance, the Empire would not have presented a threat to Alderaan’s peace in the first place, Leia thought. This was not an argument she wanted to have again, but she seemed perpetually doomed to repeat it. Her punishment for surviving, perhaps.

“Alderaan was too powerful, too influential. Sooner or later, the Empire would have found a reason to attack us, no matter how peaceful and neutral we claimed to be.”

Trouble on the Rocinante leads Holden and his crew to the mysterious Ring. The dreaded protomolecule has pulled up stakes on Venus and placed itself in orbit around Uranus as a ring shaped structure that could be a portal to another realm. But Holden and his crew are not alone. Click here to read our full review.

Martha Wells Interview via TheForce.Net

TheForce.Net has a nice interview with Star Wars author Martha Wells covering her soon to be released Leia novel Empire and Rebellion: Razor’s Edge.

After you wrote this book, with all of Leia and Han’s internal monologues reflecting on their strange relationship, did it make you look at the movies in a new light?

Martha Wells: Not really. The way I wrote their relationship was how I always saw it. When the trilogy was first coming out, I saw them as having a connection that started with the shared danger of the escape from the Death Star, and that managed to grow into a friendship despite the fact that they had conflicts. (I think everybody has that friend who you really love, and whose opinion you respect and value, but who still irritates the crap out of you sometimes and you know the feeling is often mutual.)
