ClubJade: Couple shot outs go to ClubJade. One for their excellent write up by Justin LaSalata on navigating the autograph hall at Star Wars Celebration VI. As a newcomer heading to CVI, there’s was some good info in there that I think we’ll be pretty useful.

The other shout out is for an Essential Reader’s Companion illustration of Mara Jade without the catsuit. It’s always nice to see more Mara.

Fangirlblog: With the recent release of Aaron Allston’s Mercy Kill, there were a lot of reviews floating around. One of my favorites, and also one of the most thorough, was Kay’s review on Fangirlblog. There’s some spoilers, so beware.

LightSaber Rattling: For pointing out the new employment of former Pixar writer and director Brenda Chapman and the mention of a new animated film from LucasFilm.

Rebelscum.com: If you’re heading to Star Wars Celebration VI, then be sure to check out Rebelscum’s handy Survival Guide that’s full of useful info.

And finally some shout outs for best Curiosity laughs: Geek Culture, Tom Taylor, and George Takei.

Star Wars author Drew Karpyshyn posted an update yesterday on his site revealing a few cool tidbits. First off Drew will be at Star Wars Celebration VI, however he’s not sure what his exact is going to be yet. Secondly, all of Drew’s Star Wars novels will be getting audiobooks. This means an October 30 release for the Bane Trilogy (which will be read by Jonathan Davis), and a November 13 release for Annihilation (read by Marc Thompson). Thirdly, Drew is going to participate in the nationwide Star Wars Reads Day event on October 6th.

“On October 6th I and a few other local Star Wars authors will gather together at the Barnes & Noble Arboretum in Austin to meet fans and – possibly – read excerpts from our work.” -Drew Karpyshyn

Something very interesting to point out: “a few other local Star Wars authors” could very well mean Aaron Allston since Aaron lives in Texas. Regardless, if you’re in the area, you’ll definitely want to check it out.

42 Webs Interview with Paul S. Kemp

August 10, 2012 at 8:57 am | Posted in Books, Fantasy, Interview, Sci-Fi, Star Wars Books | 1 Comment

42 Webs posted an interview yesterday with author Paul S. Kemp. The interview covers Forgotten Realms, Star Wars, Paul’s latest novel The Hammer and the Blade, and even comics.

What is your most memorable comic trade/graphic novel? Why?

Man, I haven’t read comics in such a long time.  One that sticks with me is a series of issues in Amazing Spider Man when Kraven the Hunter captures Spiderman, drugs him, buries him alive, and assumes his identity for a while.  In the end, Kraven kills himself.  He just wanted to feel what it would be like to be his most elusive prey for a while.  I think it’s stuck with me so long because it’s one of the earliest comics I remember reading that dealt so frankly with adult themes (Kraven in existential crisis and killing himself).  Similarly, the whole sequence in Daredevil (who remains my favourite hero to this day) with Typhoid Mary and Kingpin. Very adult stuff and wonderfully told.   This question reminds me that I need to get back into comics.  I miss them.
