At a Berlin press conference for the Star Trek Into Darkness release, JJ Abrams was faced with the inevitable Star Wars questions.  He gave a nugget of news about the Star Wars composer, but I have to give him credit for adroitly turning the focus back to the Star Trek film.

The entire conference is worth the watch, but if you just can’t wait, the Star Wars stuff starts at about 7:00 in.

tcw-plo-koon-clip (1)In an exclusive to USA Today, Dave Filoni discusses TCW and the upcoming bonus content, particularly a tease regarding Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas and a Plo Koon arc.

“The Jedi have been fighting a war with an army that was commissioned by one of their own, Jedi Master Syfo-Dias, but who was Syfo-Dias, and what happened to him? The dark lord of the Sith has woven an intricate web to ensnare the Jedi, but it is not full-proof and sometimes a small clue, and a bit of chance, can lead to the unraveling of the best-laid plans.”

Filoni and his team are putting the final touches on the bonus content and he admits that it’s “bittersweet”, but they’re also pretty excited.

 “They are easily some of the best things we were able to do, and I think we’re all glad we were able to finish them.”

Dave Filoni also has some advice for director JJ Abrams — be innovative.

“That’s kind of what we have that’s special, because we grew up with it, and if there’s one thing I learned from George it’s that you take that and you channel it forward into new exciting things the audience didn’t know possible, because that’s what Star Wars always did — it always moved forward.”

New Release: ‘Hair Raising’ by Kevin J. Anderson

Tags: , ,

Hair Raising by Kevin J. Anderson hits stores today. This is the third book in the Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. series. It’s a fun series and definitely worth checking out.

The fur really flies when a serial scalper stalks the supernatural citizens of the Unnatural Quarter, targeting werewolves—and what’s sadder than a chrome-domed lycanthrope? Zombie P.I. Dan Shamble is on the case, trying to stop an all-out gang war between full-time and full-moon werewolves. As he combs through the tangled clues to hunt down the bald facts, things get hairy fast.

Shamble lurches through a loony landscape of voodoo tattoo artists, illicit cockatrice fights, body builders assembling make-your-own-human kits, and perhaps scariest of all, crazed fans in town for the Worldwide Horror Convention. Yet the reign of hair-raising terror grows longer. If Shamble can’t snip this off at the roots, the whole world could end up howling mad.

Kensington Publishing has links of all the places you can find Hair Raising, which is available in both trade paperback and digital formats.
