Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 64 kicks off with news, some The Last Jedi stuff, scene descriptions, and then they get to what may be the best Star Wars holiday of all, St. Panaka Day! They celebrate Captain Panaka like no other with all of his dialog from The Phantom Menace, rating each line on grumpiness which turns out to be really fun. They talk about the character, and even go into why he wasn’t in Attack of the Clones. Excellent episode.

Blast Points: Episode 65 is Jason and Gabe geeking out on Star Wars Rebels “Twin Suns.” This one is fun from the get go. They talk about how Obi-Wan knows Ezra’s name, the duel, how perfect Obi-Wan is, Luke being the chosen one, and the glimpse of Luke. Great episode.

Bombad Radio: What If with The Witcher features Jeremiah and Chris Cannon as they discuss the possibility of a movie of The Witcher with lots of fan casting. Should it be based off the books or the games, and who would play who? Good episode for fans of the series. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

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.
