Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

The 602 Club: Band of Beings covers the Star Wars book Twlight Company. They don’t go into too many spoilers, so this one is pretty safe for all listeners. They talk about the book, the characters, some of the highlights, and interestingly enough, how the book actually ties into The Force Awakens. Now I read this book before I saw the movie, so I didn’t get to make any of those connections, but hearing them talk about it, I can definitely see how the book would fit in. Good episode and definitely worth checking out for Star Wars book fans.

Aggressive Negotiations: Episode 3 covers their favorite Star Wars ship designs. They talk about the design of the Millennium Falcon and the Rebel Blockade Runner, how one was almost the other and what that would have been like, the lack of whimsy with The Force Awakens‘ ships, and their favorite ship designs. Interesting episode.

Aggressive Negotiations: Episode 4 dives into a fun topic – Jedi training. They ponder about Jedi training in the sequel trilogy and what Luke’s Jedi Order would have been like. They analyse Yoda’s training, Obi-Wan’s training and even delve into the Jedi and sex. There’s lots on the Jedi philosophy and insightful observations on all the various training we’ve seen in Star Wars. Good episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

the-silence-by-tim-lebbonThe Silence by Tim Lebbon is out today in the US.

In the darkness of a underground cave system, blind creatures hunt by sound. Then there is light, there are voices, and they feed… Swarming from their prison, the creatures thrive and destroy. To scream, even to whisper, is to summon death. As the hordes lay waste to Europe, a girl watches to see if they will cross the sea. Deaf for many years, she knows how to live in silence; now, it is her family’s only chance of survival. To leave their home, to shun others, to find a remote haven where they can sit out the plague. But will it ever end? And what kind of world will be left?

  • Joining the list of “Untitled” Star Wars books is “Untitled Star Wars Book #3” (via edelweiss) which is set for a January 13, 2015 release (352 pages, hardcover). This is most likely Kevin Hearne‘s untitled Luke Skywalker novel, the third book in the Empire and Rebellion series. No blurb or description is given for the book. As for the other two “Untitled” Star Wars books, there is still no new updates, however they are not the Star Wars Rebels original novels, as those two have separate listings.

Comic News

  • Predator and Alien fans can check out some sneak peaks at Dark Horse’s upcoming content. Bleeding Cool has an interview with Scott Allie and Joshua Williamson featuring artwork from the Predator comic, and CBR has an interview with Chris Robertson featuring artwork from the Aliens comic.
