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

Art New

  • Dave Dorman had a nice update for his Star Wars fans, “Because I am not going to SW Celebration this year, I don’t want my fans, old and new, to miss out on any Dorman SW prints. So for one week prior to Celebration, I will have a sale on my SW artist proofs. This will probably run from April 4-12. Keep it tuned here on FB for more as we get closer. I am working on a new small oil painting of DARTH MAUL. I will have that to show and sell towards the end of the week.” You can watch Dave paint Darth Maul right here.

Book News

  • Author Jason Fry has posted part 1 and part 2 of his author notes for Imperial Justice.
  • Update from author Paul S. Kemp via Facebook, “In vague writing news, finished a novel outline and am now pondering a short story for a cool antho.” That novel outline may or may not be related to the tie-in novel he mentioned he was working on in his January reddit AMA.

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

Book News

  • This one is beyond Star Wars, but written by Star Wars authors. Kevin Hearne and Delilah S. Dawson will be teaming up to write a book called Kill The Farm Boy which will be published by Del Rey. It’s quite the tongue and cheek title, and given the authors involved, this one will probably be a lot of fun. Here’s the project in Kevin’s own words…

About a year ago my buddy Delilah S. Dawson and I were killing an hour in the Dallas airport and we came up with an idea for messing with fantasy tropes in a humorous fashion. KILL THE FARM BOY was born. Had to file it away for a while and enjoy some tacos. But a couple months ago, because of, you know, THE WORLD, we needed something lighthearted to work on as therapy. So we started writing a proposal. We outlined the book and wrote five sample chapters that made us both laugh. We also came up with ideas for a couple more books.

And what do you know? Del Rey thought they were funny too and said we can go ahead and write them! So that’s coming, friends. KILL THE FARM BOY will be out next year. Delilah and I are taking turns writing chapters while we also work on our solo projects.

I think y’all are going to dig it. We’re laughing out loud as we do this.

  • In Star Wars book news, Amazon now has a look at the cover for Star Wars: On the Frontlines by Daniel Wallace.
  • Author Paul S. Kemp has posted his short story “Continuum” online for free. This story connects Shadowstorm and Shadowrealm., books two and three of The Twilight War.
