EUbits: Star Wars books and comics at NYCC

New York Comic Con. The schedule for the October 11-14 con is up, and both EU panels are on Friday… both at noon? Star Wars Books features Jason Fry and Pablo Hidalgo, while Brian Wood & Dark Horse: From World’s End to the Galaxy’s Beginnings will be Brian Wood, Jeremy Atkins, Randy Stradley and Sierra Hahn.

Previews. EUCantina has a few pages from The Essential Reader’s Companion… (Which you can currently pre-order for $19.19 on Amazon.) Oh, and Paul S. Kemp still can’t talk about his duology.

Interviews. There were a lot of them. In text, EUCantina has Haden Blackman, Jedi News has Bill Slavicsek (old-timers will remember his Guide to the Star Wars Universe) and Fangirl talks to Del Rey’s summer intern, Tom Hoeler. In audio, Fictional Frontiers has Aaron Allston, while Jedi Journals caught up with Aaron and Drew Karpyshyn at CVI. And Roqoo Depot ties up their series of CVI video interviews with John Jackson Miller.

The blogside. Roqoo Depot thinks Crucible may bring Borsk Fey’lya back from the dead. Oh-kay.

Reviews. James reads Lost Tribe of the Sith: Spiral #2, Knight Errant: Escape #4, and Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison #5.

  1. Thanks for the Slavicsek interview; I enjoyed reading that. His is a name I remember fondly from all the WEG sourcebooks I bought and read. (Read for the short stories and artwork – I never played the game!) His 2nd edition Guide to the SW Universe was one of the first dozen(ish) SW books I owned, and if I didn’t read it cover-to-cover I came pretty dang close. I got the 3rd edition too. And then came the first encyclopedia…

    Relatedly, I remember the triumph I felt when I found the original Guide to the SW Universe (by Raymond L. Velasco, copyright 1984) at a used bookstore many years later. The circle was now complete!

  2. James: thanks! It was on my list as “would be nice to find” but I wasn’t seriously hunting for it. And I haven’t seen it since, not at any other bookstore or con.
