Star Wars author Jason Fry has a new book coming out this year, but this one isn’t in a galaxy far, far away.

The Jupiter Pirates: Hunt for the Hydra is a young adult novel promoted as “an unforgettable saga about a solar system on the brink of war – and one family caught in the middle of it.” Set for release on December 23, 2013, and with nice cover art by Tom Lintern, this is one hardcover to look out for.

Pre-orders are already available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. You can check out the book’s official website here, and if you’d like to show your support for Jason’s first original series, be sure to stop by the Facebook page and give it a like.

501stCast: Episode 75 is loaded with mission reports, including a recap of the action at San Diego Comic Con 2013. Would you believe Sylvester Stallone showed up for the second time to the 501st Legion dinner? They also mentioned that Disney has been asking the Legion to attend a lot more events lately. Opinions of Disney are high among the Legion as they’re looking at an even brighter future, which is always good to hear.

All Wings Report In: The Special Edition – John Jackson Miller episode has a nice interview with the author and comic writer. All Wings Report In is the official podcast for the Rebel Legion. John was recently inducted into the Rebel Legion at San Diego Comic Con 2013, so it’s certainly a great time to have him on the podcast. John jokes about joining the Mandalorian Mercs next for a trifecta and recruiting a Tusken Raider at SDCC to threaten con goers. He recalls a wild traffic jam he and Michael A. Stackpole witnessed involving a train, a fire truck, cops and a cosplayer with wings. John also talks about how he ended up working for Dark Horse Comics, how Knights of the Old Republic came about, when KOTOR will come back, tabletop gaming, developing the Lost Tribe of the Sith, how art can sometimes inspire the story, the origin of Kenobi and how it got put off. Like other authors recently, John emphasized that future Star Wars projects are on a wait and see basis, but he is doing stuff other than Star Wars (Simpsons, Conan, Star Trek, Overdraft: The Orion Offensive), and a whole lot more. Really great interview with good audio quality. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
