Just saw this news:
The cover of Paul Kemp‘s third (counting from Crosscurrent and including Deceived) Star Wars novel, Riptide, has been revealed. Riptide is the sequel to Paul’s Expanded Universe debut, Crosscurrent, which I reviewed here. Here’s the cover:
Er… I’ll have to be completely honest and say that this cover just doesn’t do it for me. Not only is it a complete departure from Crosscurrent’s cover, but it also just doesn’t look like Jaden to me (meaning, the Jaden in Jedi Academy).
But, I’m seriously looking forward to this book! 🙂 It’ll become available on July 26th, and you can pre-order your copies here (Amazon US) and here (Amazon UK). (Thanks to EU Cantina, where I saw the post; head on over to their site to read Riptide’s blurb) Paul will also be writing a dulogy set in the EU, check out the news here.
Next up, news about The Dark Knight Rises:
“Batman has found a nemesis for his next cinematic adventure – and it looks like a love interest, too.”
The love-interest? Anne Hathaway, who’ll be portraying (YES!) Selina Kyle – Catwoman! 🙂 (well, that’s who Selina is, so it’s a no-brainer). 🙂 Very chuffed with this – I think Anne will be able to pull off Selina damn well and it’ll be great to see her in an excellent action movie again.
Other news, and potentially bigger: BANE. You read that right. Check out this post for all the details.
And can I just say that I would give my left kidney for a ticket to the premiere? (including air-fares and accomodation?) 😉
