Author John Jackson Miller posted a guest blog on Kindle Daily Post discussing serialized fiction. This is of course in relations to John’s new serialized sci-fi title Overdraft: The Orion Offensive. It’s a nice post which reminds readers how serialized fiction got started and evolved into comics. You can check it out here.

Dark Horse Comics has two new Star Wars releases today, Star Wars #4 and the hardcover trade paperback of Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison (which has probably the best artwork I’ve ever seen in a Star Wars comic).

Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison HC TPB

A traitorous uprising against the fledgling Galactic Empire leaves Emperor Palpatine close to death. Saving the Emperor—and the Empire—appears to be a lost cause…unless Vader can uncover the secrets of the Jedi Council and locate the mysterious “Ghost Prison.” Collects the five-issue miniseries.

* Written by The Force Unleashed’s Haden Blackman!
* A beautiful, fully painted graphic novel in hardcover with dust jacket!

Book Bomb for Ben Wolverton

April 10, 2013 at 12:01 am | Posted in Books, Charity, Events | Leave a comment

There is a book bomb today for Dave Wolverton’s son Ben. Ben was in a serious long-boarding accident last week and the family is trying to raise money to help cover the medical expenses since they don’t have insurance. Ben is 16 and suffered severe brain trauma, a cracked skull, broken pelvis and tail bone, burnt knees, bruised lungs, broken ear drum, and road rash from the accident. He is currently in a coma.

Personally, I wasn’t familiar with the term “book bomb” but it’s an event where everyone is encourage to buy a specific book in order to raise money. This book bomb is focusing on two books: Nightingale and Million Dollar Outlines. You can also donate directly via www.gofundme.com/BensRecovery.

You can find more details here on their official site, www.helpwolverton.com and you can show your support via their Facebook page.
