Drew Karpyshyn talks about the recent EA buyout of Bioware, the Rule of Two manuscript and an event that happened… last Saturday. Whoops.
R.A. Salvatore talks a bit about his Star Wars novel experience about halfway through his interview with Fantasy Book Critic. The SW bits handily start just about where you see the Vector Prime book cover.
