World of Warcraft: War Crimes by Christie Golden is out today in mass market paperback.

Now in mass-market paperback—the national bestseller and direct tie-in to the new game expansion pack Warlords of Draenor—a thrilling novel set in the universe of the record-breaking, internationally bestselling video game World of Warcraft!

The brutal siege of Orgrimmar is over. Alliance and Horde forces have stripped Garrosh Hellscream, one of the most reviled figures on Azeroth, of his title as warchief. His thirst for conquest devastated cities, nearly tore the Horde apart, and destroyed countless lives.

Now, on the legendary continent of Pandaria, he will stand trial for his transgressions. Renowned leaders from across the world have gathered to witness this historic event. As the trial unfolds, agents of the bronze dragonflight present shocking visions of Garrosh’s atrocities. For many of those in attendance, these glimpses into history force them to relive painful memories and even question their own innocence or guilt. For others, the chilling details stoke the flames of their hatred.

Unbeknownst to anyone, shadowy forces are at work on Azeroth, threatening not only the court’s ability to mete out justice…but also the lives of everyone at the trial.

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • There is a new anthology raising money for CJ Henderson in his fight against cancer. The anthology entitled Dance Like A Monkey will features stories by authors like Kevin J. Anderson, Ed Greenwood, Rebecca Moesta, Michael A. Stackpole, Timothy Zahn and many others. Click here if you’d like to support the project and secure a copy of the book.
  • Star Wars author Jason Fry posted some interesting comments on tumblr. At least one of those Star Wars projects is a junior novel for Star Wars: Rebels.

1) One manuscript (Star Wars) given a final inspection and sent off. It’s never wise to say something’s done, but this one should now move to the “fielding occasional queries” stage.
2) One manuscript (Jupiter Pirates) worked on between errands, emails, travel plans and everything else on this list. Long way to go on this one.
3) One query answered for a third project (Star Wars), and a handful of minor changes requested. Fingers crossed, but this one might actually be done.
4) Query sent for a potential project (Star Wars). Will be interesting to see if this one becomes a reality or not. As projects come to an end, you better have new ones coming into view.

  • Christie Golden has a new World of Warcraft book coming out this May, War Crimes. Battle.net has an excerpt as well.
  • “The Reach of Children” by Tim Lebbon is now available on Kindle.

Michael A. Stackpole on ‘Vol’jin: Shadows of the Horde’

Michael A. Stackpole has written dozens of sci-fi and fantasy novels, but Vol’jin: Shadows of the Horde marks his first World of Warcraft novel. To commemorate the event, we asked Mike how he got the chance to dive into the WoW franchise, the challenges involved and whether he got the chance to play the game. Without further ado, we present our interview with Michael A. Stackpole.

How did the opportunity to write Vol’jin: Shadows of the Horde come about?

Michael A. Stackpole: Back in 2011 a friend suggested I get in touch with Blizzard about writing a WOW novel, since he thought my style would work for them. It wasn’t until a year later that another friend put me in touch with Blizzard. They were interested, had a tight deadline, and a big hole had just opened up in my schedule. It was just serendipity, I guess, but an opportunity I did not want to miss.

‘Shadows of the Horde’ Cover and Blurb Reveal

Are you a World of Warcraft fan? If not, get ready to be, because Michael A. Stackpole is joining the part. Joystiq.com has posted the cover and blurb reveal for Mike’s latest book, Shadows of the Horde, which will be out July 2nd.

Warchief Garrosh’s assassins strike at Vol’jin, leaving him at death’s door. But fate smiles on the wounded Darkspear leader when renowned brewmaster Chen Stormstout transports him to the safety of an isolated mountain monastery. There, Vol’jin wrestles with old hatreds smoldering between the Alliance and the Horde as he struggles to recover alongside a mysterious human soldier.

Yet this is only the beginning of Vol’jin’s worries. Soon, he becomes embroiled in an invasion of Pandaria launched by the Zandalari, revered trolls driven by dreams of conquest and power. This ancient tribe offers Vol’jin a chance to seize the glory that is the birthright of all trolls… an offer made even more tempting after Garrosh’s brazen treachery.

Amid these troubling events, Vol’jin is rocked by intense visions depicting his race’s grand history. As he questions where his loyalties lie, he knows he must make a choice about his own destiny that could save his people or damn them to languish under Garrosh’s heel.
