All Wings Report In, the official podcast of the Rebel Legion, has a really nice interview with author John Jackson Miller. John was recently inducted into the Rebel Legion at San Diego Comic Con 2013, and he jokes around about joining the Mandalorian Mercs next for a trifecta. He talks about recruiting a Tusken Raider at SDCC to threaten con goers, a wild traffic jam he and Michael S. Stackpole witnessed involving a train, a fire truck, cops and a cosplayer with wings. John also talks about how he ended up working for Dark Horse Comics, how Knights of the Old Republic came about, when KOTOR will come back, tabletop gaming, developing the Lost Tribe of the Sith, how art can sometimes inspire the story, the origin of Kenobi and how it got put off. Like other authors recently, John emphasized that future Star Wars projects are on a wait and see basis, but he is doing stuff other than Star Wars (Simpsons, Conan, Star Trek, Overdraft: The Orion Offensive). The interview covers a whole lot more, and combined with the good audio quality, this is definitely one worth checking out.

New Release: ‘Overdraft: The Orion Offensive’

John Jackson Miller’s science fiction serialization Overdraft: The Orion Offensive wraps up with Episode 8 today. The complete eBook edition is now available on Amazon, and readers can also pre-order the collected paperback edition which will be a whopping 400+ pages.

After an egotistical stock trader for one of the twenty-second century’s biggest corporations gets greedy and loses his employer a fortune, he has two options: go to jail or make the money back before anyone notices. Unfortunately, the only place such profits can be found is the galactic frontier, a region so dangerous it’ll take an uneasy alliance with a crew of rugged mercenaries to keep him alive and in the black.

You’d have to be insane to trade with the violent denizens of the Orion Arm, but with just one hundred days to recoup $100 billion, Jamie Sturm is feeling a little crazy. Standing between Jamie and a variety of agonizing deaths is Surge Team Sigma, the squad of power-armored mercenaries tasked with protecting him. Their last job ended in disaster thanks to Jamie’s scheming, and, led by the implacable Bridget Yang, the team is determined to keep the hapless Jamie alive long enough to fix their reputation. That is, assuming they can ignore their own growing desire to flush the annoying tagalong out of the nearest airlock.
