Author Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff posted today that she has a new short story anthology out called Shaman. The anthology collects her stories published in Analog Science Fiction magazine from 1990 to 2011.

“They feature the adventures of eccentric kilt-wearing anthropologist / archaeologist / xenologist Rhys Llewellyn and his able assistants, Yoshi Umeki and Roderick Halfax. Given my fascination with archaeology, first contact… and all things Scottish, I suppose these stories were inevitable.” -Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff

Comic Book Resources posted an interview last week with Star Wars comic writer Tom Taylor. The interview covers his upcoming mini-series Darth Maul: Death Sentence with some nice plot details.

As to which Jedi are on the scene for this book, Taylor said there will be a mix of big guns and fresh faces. “Most of the big guys will make an appearance, including Mace Windu and Yoda, but we’ll also be meeting two Jedi we’ve never met before, the lightsaber-pike wielding alien Judd, and female Jedi Salmara,” the writer said. “There is also a young Padawan by the name of Dray, which will mean something to anyone who has read ‘Star Wars: Invasion.’ It’s great to go back and add to the character of Dray. In the pages of ‘Invasion,’ Dray is absolutely insane and always quick to open his mouth to say whatever he’s thinking. Here, he’s not so insane but his mouth still runs freely.”

Click here to read the full interview. There are also a couple page previews you can check out.

Something else worth pointing out, Tom mention that he and artist Christ Scalf pitched an idea for a new Luke Skywalker comic to Randy Stradley. Now we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
