Star Wars Insider #135 splashes the cover with some iconic characters as it kicks off a look back at 30 years of videogames. From Atari to The Old Republic, there’s quite a  collection of highlights.

Tricia Barr (FANgirl Blog) also has the honor of interview author Aaron Allston on his upcoming novel X-Wing: Mercy Kill. Aaron talks about Piggy, the new Yuuzhan Vong member of Wraith Squadron, and how he uses of humor in his books.

Star Wars author Karen Miller revealed on her blog that she’s returning to Star Wars with a short story for Star Wars Insider magazine.

So,  a reasonably quiet weekend, with some research and some getting ready to put together a short story for Star Wars Insider magazine. I guess I can gloat a bit and share that I got to read the new Aaron Allston extravaganza as preliminary research … bwahahahaha! *g* Allston fans are going to have such a blast with this one, I’m sure.

Thanks to Club Jade for the heads up.
