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

Book News

  • has released a new except for Aftermath: Empire’s End by Chuck Wendig which will be out February 21st and will concluded the Aftermath trilogy.
  • Del Rey’s Star Wars Facebook page teased a picture that seems to indicate the new Thrawn novel will have blue page edging. Pretty cool.

  • Kevin Hearne has revealed the cover of his upcoming book A Plague of Giants. Pre-orders are up at all major booksellers. The book will also include a map and interior illustrations. It will be out October 17 and is the first of three books with this one coming in at 624 pages.

“A PLAGUE OF GIANTS sends us to a continent attacked by two separate armies of giants after many years of peace, and its people must figure out how to stop forces that appear to be unstoppable. Told from multiple points of view and featuring my typical attention to the natural world, I hope you’ll give it a try and enjoy the heck out of it.” -Kevin Hearne

  • Troy Denning fans will be happy to know that he’s back at work on his next story, and it’s a space opera. However it’s probably not Star Wars. Lately Troy has been writing for Halo so chances are it’s a new Halo story, but still definitely worth checking out. We’ll keep an eye out for more details.
  • Meanwhile author Kevin J. Anderson is also working on a new book, but we have a title for that one: Spine of the Dragon.
