I almost missed out on this panel, but I’m glad I didn’t. The “Changing the Medium” panel at MidAmeriCon II featured authors Martha Wells and William C. Dietz as well as guests Gary Kloster, Christopher Kastensmidt and moderator Monica Valentinelli. Each of the guests on the panel shared some excellent insights on the writing business with a focus on writing in different mediums. This included tie-in work, novelizations and working with games, be it a tabletop game like Pathfinder or video games like Halo and Mass Effect. It was a very cool panel and I managed to get the first 12 minutes of it on video, and I’ve also got the audio for the full panel. Enjoy!

MidAmeriCon II “Queer Star Wars” Panel

At MidAmeriCon II, one of the more intriguing Star Wars panels was one called “Queer Star Wars.” With a greater call for diversity in fandom, this panel explored what roads Star Wars has begun to explore in regards of diversity as well as the stumbling blocks it has had to overcome. The panel touches on the reluctance of publishing to accept LGBT characters, their recent change in acceptance, and even the corporate issues with LGBT characters when foreign markets like China are unwilling to embrace such diversity.

The panel is moderated by Matt Jacobson and features Martha Wells (the author of Star Wars: Razor’s Edge), Vivian Trask, Dr. Amy H. Sturgis and Dr. Mary A. Turzillo.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Backseat Book Club: Episode 24 features an interview with author Matthew Stover who digs deep into the themes he likes to explore in his books. Most notably, they cover his Acts of Caine series and the first book, Heroes Die, but they do briefly mention his tie-in work, including Star Wars. It’s a revealing look at what makes him tick as a writer and his interest in violence. He also mentions a few projects he is currently working on: a hard boiled detective novel which he is finishing up, a tie-in novel which he’ll be working on next, and a return to the Acts of Caine series in the near future.

Coffee with Kenobi: Book Chat with Martha Wells episode has a nice interview with the author of Empire and Rebellion: Razor’s Edge. Martha reveals the different aspects she strove for with the characters, the areas she wanted to avoid, how her fanfic work affected the story, and a whole lot more. If you’re looking for a download link, you can check out podbay.fm.

Here’s this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode 1 is a long one, almost two hours, but hosts Tricia Barr and Teresa Delgado do a good job of keeping it interesting. In their debut episode, they cover a lot of ground, introductions, an overview of their intended focus for the podcast, their opinions on fandom and women, a great interview with Star Wars: The Clone Wars voice actress Catherine Taber, and so much more. I think my highlight of the episode, aside from the interview with Cat Taber, was Tricia and Teresa’s discussion segment on Boba Fett. Tricia isn’t a big fan of Fett but Teresa is, and it was fun to hear their opinions on one of my favorite Star Wars characters.

Fictional Frontiers: Episode 261 (listed as Episode #1 on Shotglass Digital) includes an interview with Kenobi author John Jackson Miller. Fiction Frontiers’ host, Sohaib, is one of the best interviewers out there, so if you like listening to interviews, you’ll want to check this one out. As always, he does a nice job talking with John, covering his book, and touching on his upcoming projects.

Episode 265 has a nice interview with Empire and Rebellion: Razor’s Edge author Martha Wells. Sohaib covers some of the choices Martha made in the direction of the book, as well as her view on Leia, Han, and the Alderaanian pirates. The interview is spoiler free, so be sure to check it out.
