The Star Wars Books Facebook page hosted a chat with author Paul S. Kemp this evening. Kemp is the author of last year’s Crosscurrent, The Old Republic: Deceived, and the just-released Riptide. Warning: This chat will contain some spoilers for all three of his books. I’ve tried to contain them to the last part here, but be warned: I might miss some, since I haven’t read any of them. Head beneath the cut to check it out the highlights. Continue reading “Highlights of today’s chat with author Paul S. Kemp”
Interviews. DaveBrendon talks to Paul S. Kemp and John Jackson Miller about Crosscurrent, Lost Tribe of the Sith and writing Star Wars. On a related note, JJM has posted his final Knights of the Old Republic production notes.
Blogside. Deborah J. Ross (aka Deborah Wheeler) on how she came to write her story ‘Goatgrass: The Tale of Ree-Yees’ in Tales from Jabba’s Palace.
Today brings our first novel of the new year: Paul S. Kemp’s Crosscurrent. Kemp’s been much in demand lately: There are interviews at TheForce.Net, swbooks.co.uk and in French at Star Wars Universe. Early reviews of the book have popped up at Flames Rising, DaveBrendon’s and Team Preston.
Don’t worry, comic fans, there’s something for you, too: Legacy #44 will be in comic shops on Wednesday.
Namesake corner. Topps is saluting the ‘Women of Star Wars‘ in their Galaxy 5 line. And since you can only have so many slave Leias before the theme gets tired, there’s an Adam Hughes Mara Jade card. Granted, it’s Adam Hughes and thus total cheesecake, but we’re used to that.
Visions peek. I can’t believe there’s, like, war and battle and stuff in the Star Wars art book. Ugh. (P.S. If we’re going there, I would love something ROTJish in the style of The Death of General Wolfe. And prints, because I would so totally buy prints of that if it was done with a stylistically straight face.)
Would you like some false hope with that? IGN has ‘thoughtfully’ compiled all the leading candidates for the totally nonexistent, never-going-to-happen (except for probably that bounty hunter thing in the live action series) additional Star Wars movies. Basically, what I am saying is, no matter how good the effects on Avatar are, don’t hold your breath. (Yeah, I am a little sick of this topic and Dark Empire? Are you kidding me? …Sorry.)
