Hollywood.com Interviews Timothy Zahn

Hollywood.com posted a nice interview with author Timothy Zahn covering his upcoming novel Scoundrels.

It’s a departure for you as well, because it feels more like a one-off, standalone adventure. It doesn’t feature some of the characters that recur in your work like Thrawn or Mara Jade. 

TZ: Actually, that was part of the goal with this. Shelly Shapiro, the Del Rey editor, and Sue Rostoni, who was handling these things for Lucas Licensing at the time, were looking for a story that could appeal to Star Wars fans who weren’t necessarily Star Wars readers. There are 150+ Star Wars novels out there and for someone who isn’t already familiar with them the whole thing can look a little intimidating. So my goal was to do a story that could draw in fans who don’t know anything about the Expanded Universe. What kind of story could do that? That story is Scoundrels. If you’ve seen the Original Trilogy, you’re good to go.

You can check out the full interview here.

Random House has an early preview of some of the chapters in Timothy Zahn’s upcoming novel Scoundrels. You can check it out here (just click on the image of the book for a pop up viewer). The 38 page preview includes mostly first page excerpts from the first 24 chapters. If that’s not enough to hold you over for the next three weeks, be sure to check out Zahn’s eNovella Winner Lose All, and his short story “Heist” (in the latest Star Wars Insider) which both tie-in to Scoundrels.

As noted elsewhere and by Timothy Zahn himself, Scoundrels has a new release date of January 1, 2013. This is a push back from the previous December 26 publication date. On the bright side, everyone can now start 2013 with a bang.

FANgirlblog Interviews Shelly Shapiro

FANgirlblog posted an interview today with Del Rey Editor-at-Large Shelly Shapiro. The interview reveals a lot of things, including the fact that Shelly is a gamer, that no Star Wars manuscript has ever been dead on arrival, Shelly’s thoughts on strong female characters in literature, and some info on the upcoming novels like Crucible.

SS: Crucible will be beyond awesome. After all these years of huge-cast, multi-family Star Wars series, I wanted to focus back on our three original heroes for one more exciting adventure (at least one more!) before they’re so old that the action won’t sustain suspension of disbelief. This seemed like the right time to do it. I haven’t read a word of it yet, because Troy is still writing it, but I can’t wait to read it. I’m looking forward to spending some serious time with Luke, Han, and Leia – the older, wiser ones, who have so much experience to bring to bear to an epic quest. Remember the movie Space Cowboys, where NASA had a problem that only a few of the old-time, retired (if memory serves) astronauts could handle? I loved that movie. That’s what comes to mind when I think of Crucible, except that Crucible will have a lot more action and derring-do!

Timothy Zahn posted a lengthy update on his Facebook page Friday with a rundown of his upcoming projects. Tim will be writing a pre-Scoundrels short story called “Heist” for Star Wars Insider that will be about Bink and Tavia, two of the characters from Scoundrels, and will be out in December. He will also be writing a pre-Scoundrels novelette which will be released as an eBook in December.

Outside of Star Wars, Zahn will be returning to the Honorverse with a novella tentatively titled “Wake-Up Call.” This will be apart of the next Honorverse anthology and will take place 400 years before Honor Harrington’s birth.

Tim also has another story he has in the works that is tentatively titled “Of Biblical Proportions,” which will be set in the Basil and Moebius universe. It will be part of a upcoming graphic novel which is slated for a fall release.
