Here are this week’s Star Wars podcast reviews.

ForceCast: Episode 252 includes a nice special guest segment with EUCantina’s William Devereux as they discuss EA and Star Wars games. The rest of the podcast covers other in the news items, however there is a lot of drawn out discussion that just isn’t very discussion worthy.

Episode 253 covers some Star Wars vs Star Trek material, unfortunately it’s rather long and not all that interesting. As a listener, I didn’t find myself drawn into the discussion.

There are a lot of other podcasts I’d rather listen to, so from here on out there won’t be anymore reviews for the ForceCast unless they feature some author interviews or something else of particular interest.

Author Matthew Stover posted a guest blog on Orbit Books which breaks the norm by listing a bunch of interesting notes pertaining to stories, writing, and thensome.

“Most of what follows will be about story, because I make stories the same way I breathe: even to pause requires an act of will, and if I ever stop, it’s because I’m dead.” -Matthew Stover Continue Reading Around the Web…
