Fifteen Minutes of Fiction: They have a new interview up with Steve Sansweet.

ForceCast: Had a special interview episode with The Clone Wars voice actress Ashley Eckstein. While some of the questions covered familiar ground, others covered new territory. Ashley didn’t give away anything about the lost episodes of season six, but she did touch on her work as Ahsoka and on Her Universe.

Episode 248 is out but I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet, however the title intrigues me, “Who Doesn’t Need More Killiks?”.

Full of Sith: Episode XVII featured an interview with guest Amy Ratcliffe. The hosts ask Amy about how she got involved with Star Wars, her favorite moments and the extent of her work. It’s a nice conversation and worth a listen. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Comic Book Resources posted a nice interview with J.W. Rinzler discussing his upcoming comic project The Star Wars which includes some of the concept art for the series.

Is George Lucas involved at all in the process?

J.W. Rinzler: I’ve shown him early material. I’m still going to show him complete pages but I think, or at least hope, that he trusts us to do something good. And you never know. He may want to be more involved as it goes on. That’s happened before. I’ll show him the pages pre-dialogue and sincerely hope he’ll like them.

Are you a World of Warcraft fan? If not, get ready to be, because Michael A. Stackpole is joining the part. Joystiq.com has posted the cover and blurb reveal for Mike’s latest book, Shadows of the Horde, which will be out July 2nd.

Warchief Garrosh’s assassins strike at Vol’jin, leaving him at death’s door. But fate smiles on the wounded Darkspear leader when renowned brewmaster Chen Stormstout transports him to the safety of an isolated mountain monastery. There, Vol’jin wrestles with old hatreds smoldering between the Alliance and the Horde as he struggles to recover alongside a mysterious human soldier.

Yet this is only the beginning of Vol’jin’s worries. Soon, he becomes embroiled in an invasion of Pandaria launched by the Zandalari, revered trolls driven by dreams of conquest and power. This ancient tribe offers Vol’jin a chance to seize the glory that is the birthright of all trolls… an offer made even more tempting after Garrosh’s brazen treachery.

Amid these troubling events, Vol’jin is rocked by intense visions depicting his race’s grand history. As he questions where his loyalties lie, he knows he must make a choice about his own destiny that could save his people or damn them to languish under Garrosh’s heel.
