SF Crowsnest interviews Path of Destruction author Drew Karpyshyn. Be warned, he talks a lot about games.
Confession: I found Path of Destruction at my local library and read it, even though the whole Old Republic era isn’t something I’m particularly interested in. It was a fast, decent read; I’d recommend it if you want a quick sideline from LOTF or whatever your current focus is. However, I’m still boggling at one fan who dismissed it as ‘popcorn reading’. By my definition, the worst a decent Star Wars novel can be is ‘popcorn’. There are some authors who take that aspect too far (you know the ones I mean) but not every novel needs to delve into the philosophy of the Force to be a satisfying read. Hell, if Star Wars can’t be popcorn, what can?
