NYCC. Aaron Goins writes up last weekend’s Star Wars Books panel. We may have gleaned the big news then, but there’s more here. Since he was in town, Suvudu talked to Pablo Hidalgo about The Essential Readers’ Companion and Timothy Zahn about Scoundrels. And Tim Zahn met the Emperor!
Interviews. EUCantina talked to Del Rey’s Erich Schoeneweiss about winning back jaded fans, editorial decisions and even those Stover rumors. (Spoiler: Don’t hold your breath) and more. Meanwhile, there’s more Pablo over at BSR, and Bombad Radio has Drew Karpyshyn.
The blogside. On the occasion of old stories coming out into the light again, Charlene Newcomb writes about the birth of Alex Winger. And Steve Sansweet learns to love his action figure book.

HORRORS! Tosche Station’s Nanci is rereading the Jedi Prince books. Oh dear.
StarWars.com has a brand-new Alex Winger story from Charlene Newcomb today! But per usual, you need Hyperspace to read it… I’m not sure if you can buy Hyperspace for someone else, but a membership might make a nice last-minute holiday gift for your favorite WEG-reading old-schooler.
StarWars.com has posted two short story reprints in the last week or so: Patricia A. Jackson’s ‘The Longest Fall’ and Patricia A. Jackson & Charlene Newcomb’s ‘Betrayal By Knight.’
