More new contract fallout: Alex Irvine details the timing of his ‘ancient Jedi’ novel on his blog:
…Yours truly is going to be writing a novel set just before the Knights of the Old Republic storyline. Since I am one of those guys who saw the movie (you know, The Movie; you know the one I mean) a dozen times the summer it came out, this is kind of a dream come true. Viva la Geek! Plus, there are some interesting open spaces in the continuity from that period, which give me a lot of room to work.
Isn’t that what the comics are doing? Oh well: I won’t even pretend to be an expert on that time period. (Some have speculated that this could be related to the still-rumored KOTOR MMO, but aren’t direct game tie-ins handled by separate contracts?)
- Young adult: Eddie spotted a couple new YA titles on Amazon.
- Interviews: Karen Miller talks briefly about Star Wars on Davebrendon’s Fantasy & Sci-Fi Weblog; Karen Traviss was on Fictional Frontiers yesterday. Presumably the episode will be up on their podcast archive at some point; Henry Gilroy is talking The Clone Wars comics at Newsarama again. (via)
