Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book & Comic News

  • StarWars.com has a cover reveal for Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Stories of Light and Dark, an upcoming anthology that will be out August 25th. The book will include 11 stories by authors: Lou Anders, Preeti Chhibber, Zoraida Córdova, Jason Fry, Rebecca Roanhorse, Greg Van Eekhout, Tom Angleberger, E. Anne Convery, Sarah Beth Durst, Yoon Ha Lee, and Anne Ursu. However, only one of the stories will be completely original, the others will be retellings of existing episodes and arcs from the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television show. But there will be some artwork in the book by Ksenia Zelentsova, and hopefully the retellings will prove to be worth while enough to buy the book.
  • This falls under book and comic news, but Creators 4 Comics is auctioning off stuff and it includes Star Wars writers. Jedi News has a roundup here, and  here what is being sold off and by who. Auctions end on 4/20. You can read the details on how it works here.

Last weekend I went to a small sci-fi convention in Columbia, MO called DoDeca Con. While there I had the opportunity to chat with author John Jackson Miller. I talked with John about his new trilogy Star Trek: Prey, his Halo short story in Halo: Fractures, his comic in Halo: Tales From Slipspace, and his short story in Planet of the Apes: Tales From the Forbidden Zone. Below you can either listen to the interview on YouTube, or download it via Podbean.
