Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 022 covers Star Wars video games as they talk about their favorites and least favorites, from Super Star Wars to The Force Unleashed II.

Blast Points: Episode 31 features guest Ryan Porter. They start off talking a little about Aftermath by Chuck Wendig, then work their way to Life Debt. Lot of good observations and some fun discussion, but it’s only a half hour long. I could have definitely listened to them for a full hour. Great show regardless.

Blast Points: Episode 32 features Dunc from Club Jade. They talk about the early days of online fandom, Dunc talks about how she got into the books, fanfic and zines, and they talk about Star Wars fandom in general. It’s a fun episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Being revealed at New York Comic Con, there’s some cool news regarding upcoming Star Wars books.

  • The titles for the next two books in Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath trilogy are Life Debt and Empire’s End. The second book will be out Summer 2016 and the final book in 2017.
  • Lost Stars author Claudia Gray will be writing another Star Wars novel, this one called New Republic: Bloodline. Note that this will not be a sequel to Lost Stars but a brand new story set six years before The Force Awakens. The book will be out in Spring 2016.
  • Delilah S. Dawson will be writing an eBook short called “The Perfect Weapon” which will focus on a character named Bazine (who was featured in the Vanity Fair alien photo shoot, the one in the lap of that bulky Bossk looking guy). It’ll be out in November. Delilah is new to Star Wars, so this will be her first story in the galaxy far, far away. To find out more about her, you can check out her official website and peruse some of her novels.
  • Landry Walker, also new to Star Wars, will be writing a series of novelettes: “High Noon on Jakku”, “All Creatures Great and Small”, “The Face of Evil”, and “The Crimson Corsair and the Lost Treasure of Count Dooku.” They’ll be released on December 1st. Walker is mostly known for his comic work and landed on the New York Times Best Sellers List for his graphic novel Odd Thomas.
  • Alan Dean Foster will be writing a short story called “Bait” which ties into The Force Awakens and will be appearing in Star Wars Insider #162 (on sale December 23). It stars Grungar, the bulky looking Bossk guy in the Vanity Fair photo shoot.

Best of all, you can listen to the audio for the Star Wars books panel from NYCC over on The Wookiee Gunner.
