John Jackson Miller has posted the production notes for Knight Errant: Deluge #1 on his blog. If you’ve already read Deluge #1 then I highly recommend checking out the production notes as they provide a lot of insight into the comic (the production notes contain a lot of spoilers). John explains how the second comic arc came into being as well as some explanations on Captain Jenn Devaad, Aquilaris, Kerra Holt’s emotions in Deluge #1, Zodoh the Hutt and his tie to The Star Wars Atlas, ship designs, and some trivia. You can check read the production notes here.

August 29, 2011 at 9:02 am | Posted in Books, Interview, Star Wars News | Leave a comment

On Rowena Cory Daniells website, she conducted a very nice interview with author Sean Williams. A wide range of topics were covered including Star Wars, writing, the upcoming World Fantasy Convention in San Diego in October, eBooks and changes in the publishing industry, music, the Royal Institution of Australia, and even curries. There is also a contest at the end where Sean will be giving away a copy of his books Magic Dirt, Troubletwisters, and Cenotaxis, however you’ll have to answer his Doctor Who question:

As a long-time Dr Who fan, Sean says, if the Tardis appeared in your living room and Dr Who stepped out and invited you on an adventure, which of the Doctors would you like it to be and why?

You can head on over to Rowena Cory Daniells website to check out the interview and to enter the contest here.
