Hodder goes Genre and Crosscurrent-Sequel get’s a Title

18 Jun

Hey everyone, here’s some news for you – which you may or may not have already seen. 🙂

First off, Paul Kemp’s sequel to his excellent first Star Wars novel, Crosscurrent, has got a title – Riptide. 🙂 It was announced on Twitter by Paul yesterday and he talks a bit about the process behind choosing the title over at his blog. 🙂

I’m very impressed with the title because it keeps to the same theme and feeling of Crosscurrent (this being Star Wars, I’m thinking along the lines of a particularly nasty black hole and it’s power, something every traveler should beware of), and I can’t wait to read it! 🙂 You can definitely count on me posting the cover to Riptide as soon as it’s released. 🙂

Next up, Hodder is moving into the genre market! I’m pretty damn excited about this – we’ve already got some excellent and proven publishers given us awesome books (Tor, Voyager Gollancz, Orbit, Del Rey, etc) and it’ll be great to see what else Hodder has planned; there’s nothing better than healthy competition. 🙂

    Working my way through the Clone Wars mini saga by Traviss and Miller, with Cross-current on my TBR immediately after. Looking forward to it. and now that we have a title for the sequel, well, that just seems good.
    Definitely a good time to be a Star Wars fan 🙂

      Couldn’t agree with you more. 🙂 I’ve still got to get into the Traviss-Miller Clone Wars stuff but I’m looking forward to it – listening to the audio of FotJ Backlash, too. 🙂 Awesome times all round!
