This thing of darkness

An early look at the cover for Allston’s Betrayal, the first book in the Legacy of the Force series.

Word on the street says that’s Jacen on the cover, and with “the legacy of the Skywalkers may come full circle” bit… Well.

Also on the boards today, word from Sue Rostoni on the third book of the Legacy series – it’s Tempest by Troy Denning.

ETA: Suzanne at has put together an excellent post on all that’s known of Legacy so far.

Terminator Hunt now in bookstores!

Aaron Allston’s “Terminator Hunt” hits bookstores this week!

Amazon says:

Riding the crest of popularity following Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator Hunt continues the action where Aaron Allston’s first Teminator 3 novel, Terminator Dreams left off, with an exciting original story of John Connor, Kate Brewster, and the human Resistance battling Skynet and its deadly robots.

Just in time for the gift-giving season. Weeeee!

I see by your implant…

Fan audio isn’t my thing, so many thanks to Jade Crusades for pointing out an episode of Requiem of the Outcast that features an interview with Timothy Zahn and Aaron Allston at StellerCon 2004. The interview starts at 15:20 and just might bring back your post-con depression. They talk about other authors writing their characters, fan reaction, Piggy, killing characters, writing in the original Wookiee, websites as self promotion, hints about Zahn’s Outbound Flight novel and even filking.
