Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • The paperback edition of Paul S. Kemp‘s novel The Godborn is out this week, and if you’d like a signed copy, Paul can hook you up.
  • Author Jason Fry did an interview with Views From the Tesseract covering his latest novel The Jupiter Pirates: Hunt for the Hydra.
  • Martha Wells also has a new book out this week, Emilie & the Sky World. She has a full list of retailers on her blog as well as an excerpt from the book.
  • If you’d like a signed copy of Troy Denning‘s upcoming book The Sentinel, you may be in luck.

“With the release of my Forgotten Realms novel, THE SENTINEL, less than a month away, I’ve been receiving a lot of requests for autographed copies. I’m pleased to announce that Janet Waller of the Roseville Barnes and Noble store has graciously agreed to handle mail-order requests. I’ll drive up and sign the books on the release date (April 1 — and no, that’s not a joke), and then she will send the books out.

To place your order, send Janet Waller an email at . Please place your orders ASAP, as this will help her determine how many books to order. (Otherwise, there could be a wait while she restocks.) I believe she can mail to Canada as well as the U.S., but I’m not sure about other countries.” –Troy Denning
