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

Book News

  • There is a new anthology raising money for CJ Henderson in his fight against cancer. The anthology entitled Dance Like A Monkey will features stories by authors like Kevin J. Anderson, Ed Greenwood, Rebecca Moesta, Michael A. Stackpole, Timothy Zahn and many others. Click here if you’d like to support the project and secure a copy of the book.
  • Star Wars author Jason Fry posted some interesting comments on tumblr. At least one of those Star Wars projects is a junior novel for Star Wars: Rebels.

1) One manuscript (Star Wars) given a final inspection and sent off. It’s never wise to say something’s done, but this one should now move to the “fielding occasional queries” stage.
2) One manuscript (Jupiter Pirates) worked on between errands, emails, travel plans and everything else on this list. Long way to go on this one.
3) One query answered for a third project (Star Wars), and a handful of minor changes requested. Fingers crossed, but this one might actually be done.
4) Query sent for a potential project (Star Wars). Will be interesting to see if this one becomes a reality or not. As projects come to an end, you better have new ones coming into view.

  • Christie Golden has a new World of Warcraft book coming out this May, War Crimes. Battle.net has an excerpt as well.
  • “The Reach of Children” by Tim Lebbon is now available on Kindle.

Today is Billy Dee Williams’ birthday. Famous for (among other things) playing the dashing Lando Calrissian, Billy will forever be immortalized as a part of Star Wars history. Feel free to stop by Billy’s Twitter page or on Facebook and wish him happy birthday. Or if you want, you can head over to his art site and buy a painting. (What? You didn’t know Lando was a smuggler and a painter?).  And if you haven’t caught his turn as Judge Reinhold (love that name) in the Star Wars homage, Fanboys, shame on you.  I’m yanking your Star Wars nerd badge.

Billy Dee Williams Defends Lando

It sounds like a joke but it is a serious question, not just for Billy Dee Williams but for a lot of actors who play the bad guys. One has to assume Tom Felton, Draco Mallfoy of Harry Potter fame, must get some razzing when he’s out trying to get his groceries for the week. Some folks  just don’t have the necessary mental filter to separate the actor from the character.

So from The Washington Post in a blog entry from 8/9/11 comes an interview with the Love Commander himself, in defense of Lando Calrissian. Click the link for more on the story or just enjoy the video below.
