SFF Can Make You Feel Better

04 Aug

A sentiment I totally agree with! 🙂 But why have I posted this? Well, my girlfriend saw a blog post (via Facebook) that a legend of the South African music scene, Koos Kombuis, posted yesterday. Not only does he talk about SF and even Star Wars but he talks about some other very interesting topics and is well worth a read. 🙂 Here’s the link.

I’ve got some other links for you, too; Michael Cobley has got a new web-home, so don’t forget to update your RSS feeds.

Angry Robot has revealed the artwork that’ll be gracing the cover of Ian Whates’ City of Hope and Despair, and it’s quietly, stunningly beautiful – see it for yourself here.

Paul Kemp has posted an very short but cool excerpt of the sequel to his first Star Wars novel, Crosscurrent – Riptide – can’t wait for this novel! 🙂 Check it out here.

Keeping with Star Wars news: years ago James Luceno (read Cloak of Deception – an excellent Star Wars thriller that kicks The Phantom Menace’s behind) was tapped to write the novel that would flesh out Darth Plagueis and Darth Sidious, but the novel was cancelled. Well, not anymore! 🙂 Check out the news here at Club Jade. Also at Club Jade, the news broke that there would be no sequel to Karen Traviss’ Imperial Commando novel – something I’m very happy about, but because I wanted it to be written by Karen and not taken over by someone else; Karen wrote some incredible books in the Expanded Universe and was forced to leave the Star Wars stable after the Mandalorians were morphed into peace-loving slightly-militant Alderaanians. Anyway, will rant about this some other time. Maybe. Here’s the link.

Last bit of Star Wars news – Mark Chitty tells you why should read Timothy Zahn’s Heir to the Empire. 🙂

Another review here (and for a book I really want to get into, when I’ve got time) – Ian McDonald’s The Dervish House reviewed on Neth Space.

StarCraft 2 Wings of Liberty is reviewed over at The Wertzone (wishwishwish I could play this game!);

Michael Sullivan has revealed the awesome cover art of Wintertide!

And finally, my good buddy Lood has written an interesting post about novels and their big-screen adaptations. 🙂

I’ll be back tomorrow with a review of Aaron Allston’s second Fate of the Jedi novel, Backlash. Until then,
