Random House has a new blurb up for Martha Wells’ upcoming novel Empire and Rebellion: Razor’s Edge.

Times are desperate for the Rebel Alliance. Harassment by the Empire and a shortage of vital supplies are hindering completion of a new secret base on the ice planet Hoth. So when Mid Rim merchants offer much-needed materials for sale, Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo lead an Alliance delegation to negotiate a deal.

But when treachery forces the rebel ship to flee into territory controlled by pirates, Leia makes a shocking discovery: the fierce marauders come from Leia’s homeworld of Alderaan, recently destroyed by the Death Star. These refugees have turned to pillaging and plundering to survive—and they are in debt to a pirate armada, which will gladly ransom the princess to the vengeful Empire . . . if they find out her true identity.

Struggling with intense feelings of guilt, loyalty, and betrayal, Leia is determined to help her wayward kinspeople, even as Imperial forces are closing in on her own crippled ship. Trapped between lethal cutthroats and brutal oppressors, Leia and Han, along with Luke, Chewbacca, and a battle-ready crew, must defy death—or embrace it—to keep the rebellion alive.

Empire and Rebellion: Razor’s Edge is currently set for release on September 24 in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats.

Today marks the release date of a rather unique Star Wars book- William Shakespeare’s Star Wars, by Ian Doescher. The book is an adaptation of A New Hope as if written by William Shakespeare, and contains all of the language, poetry, and gratuitious monologues that anyone can expect from a work of Shakespeare’s. Though there are a few bumps along the road, the book is overall quite solid and a fun read. Our full review is below.

Michael A. Stackpole has written dozens of sci-fi and fantasy novels, but Vol’jin: Shadows of the Horde marks his first World of Warcraft novel. To commemorate the event, we asked Mike how he got the chance to dive into the WoW franchise, the challenges involved and whether he got the chance to play the game. Without further ado, we present our interview with Michael A. Stackpole.

How did the opportunity to write Vol’jin: Shadows of the Horde come about?

Michael A. Stackpole: Back in 2011 a friend suggested I get in touch with Blizzard about writing a WOW novel, since he thought my style would work for them. It wasn’t until a year later that another friend put me in touch with Blizzard. They were interested, had a tight deadline, and a big hole had just opened up in my schedule. It was just serendipity, I guess, but an opportunity I did not want to miss.
