Amazon has posted a blurb for Paul S. Kemp’s next Tales of Egil and Nix novel, A Discourse In Steel.

Egil and Nix have retired, as they always said they would. No, really – they have! No more sword and hammer-play for them!

But when two recent acquaintances come calling for help, our hapless heroes find themselves up against the might of the entire Thieves Guild.

And when kidnapping the leader of the most powerful guild in the land seems like the best course of action, you know you’re in over your head…

A Discourse In Steel will be out in June 2013.

Happy Birthday, Christie Golden

November 21, 2012 at 12:02 am | Posted in Birthday | Leave a comment

Today we wish a happy birthday to Star Wars author Christie Golden. While we still have a bit of a wait until the Sword of the Jedi trilogy comes out, Christie has written quite a few non-Star Wars titles lately including: Fable: Edge of the World, Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War, and StarCraft II: Flashpoint. Of the three, Edge of the World was my favorite and definitely worth checking out.

Agent of the Empire: Hard Targets #2 is out today.

Imperial Agent Jahan Cross doesn’t like his assignment or the politicians he is forced to work with. Yet dealing with all of that is easier than coming to terms with his growing respect for a boy whose father he killed—especially when that boy is supposed to be merely a political pawn of the Empire. When attackers kidnap the boy, Cross finds himself turning his back on his mission and putting his life on the line for a “pawn.” No job is too dangerous for an Agent of the Empire!

Writer: John Ostrander
Penciller: Davidé Fabbri
Inker: Christian Dalla Vecchia
Colorist: Wes Dzioba
Cover Artist: Stéphane Roux
