Big Shiny Robot Interviews Paul S. Kemp

Big Shiny Robot posted an interview today with author Paul S. Kemp. As all of the other recent Kemp interviews, this one covers his upcoming sword and sorcery novel The Hammer and the Blade.

And the world you created here was so fully realized, will we be seeing more stories not involving Egil and Nix at any point?

PK: Interesting question and one I honestly haven’t considered. For the time being, I’m content to show the world through Egil and Nix’s eyes, but I guess you never know. Tangent: I’m delighted to hear you found the world evocative. That’s a tricky thing in sword and sorcery fiction. On the one hand, it shouldn’t be an encyclopedic reference book for a secondary world (we can leave that to epic fantasy). On the other hand, there still needs to be a strong sense of place. I’m glad to hear it worked for you.

Today we wish a happy birthday to Liam Neeson. The man who played Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn turns 60 today. If you haven’t seen him in Battleship yet, it’s worth a watch. And if you plan on seeing the new Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises, you’ll definitely see him there.

One discussion that often pops up in Star Wars is the ‘Balance of the Force’ debate. Anakin Skywalker was declared the Chosen One, and it was foretold that the chosen one would bring balance to the Force. But what does balance mean? Continue Reading Balance to the Force…

Back in the day Jeff Broz sneaked himself and his 8MM onto the Arizona location shoot of ROTJ and captured some soundless and somewhat grainy footage.  Broz just released his never-before-seen footage, and (at least for me) the nostalgia factor is fantastic.  Ah, those were the days.

‘Star Wars: The Old Republic’ goes Free-to-Play in July

June 7, 2012 at 8:21 am | Posted in Star Wars: The Old Republic, Video Games | Leave a comment

It was announced at E3 that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be going free-to-play in July. Of course there’s a catch, your character will only be able to go up to level 15. However, judging from a lot of various feedback, the question is whether you really need to go beyond that? Regardless, if you haven’t played Star Wars: The Old Republic yet, then July is going to be the month to give it a try. You can’t beat free. On top of that, they’re adding new content including more companions and a new planet called Makeb.
