Book Review: Conan by Michael A. Stackpole

With the recent film release of Conan, many readers might have seen the novelization on bookshelves. What you might not have realized is that it’s written by esteemed author Michael A. Stackpole. Now it’s one thing to read a book that was so good it inspired a movie, but novelizations are often not held up to the same standards as other books. I wondered to myself whether Stackpole could pull off a novelization that was truly enjoyable, one that could stand up on its own and not feel like a script with a few bonus scenes. To find out, click here and read the full review.

New Interview with Michael A. Stackpole

Suvudu posted an interview with former Star Wars author Michael A. Stackpole today that covers briefly his work with Star Wars on the X-Wing books and the chance he might write more. The interview also touches on his new upcoming Conan the Barbarian book which will help promote the new film.

CPI and I agreed, after I saw the movie, that I wouldn’t so much novelize the script, as I would write the novel from which the movie was clearly taken. (Yeah, I know, a mindbender.) During the process I kept in mind a mythical reader who would read the book, then see the film, and say, “They should have stuck more to the book.” Because movies and novels are different media, changes had to be made.

Stackpole’s Conan the Barbarian will be out on July 5th (and is available for pre-order on Amazon). The new film Conan the Barbarian will be out August 19th. You can check out the full interview with Michael Stackpole here.
