Celebration Recap and Interviews – SWBW #41

bookworms Banner

Now that some time has passed and we are down from our Celebration high, it’s time to think back on all the good times.

  • Celebration was packed with awesome Star Wars events, celebrity sightings, and hanging out with all our favorite people. We take some time to recap our Celebration Anaheim experience.
  • We also got some great author interviews while we were there. Our first one was with Christie Golden who talked about her reaction to the new The Force Awakens trailer, creating a new species, and writing Vos and Ventress in Dark Disciple.
  • Next we talked to John Jackson Miller about writing a Rebels novel, his take on Hera and Kanan, and why he gave a certain character such a cruel fate in Kenobi.
  • Our last Celebration interview was with James Luceno. He talked about creating Tarkin’s backstory with the Story Group, writing dark side characters, and his take on new canon and Legends.
  • After we got back from Celebration we caught up with writer and artist Jeffrey Brown to talk about his books including the just released Darth Vader and Friends.

Is it Celebration London yet?

Star Wars Celebration is almost here and we have so much to talk about. Sadly Teresa wasn’t able to join in for this episode, but we got a great guest host in Kay from Fangirl Blog and the Hyperspace Theories podcast.

  • We talk about the details of the Bookworms panel that will be on the podcast stage at Star Wars Celebration. We also reveal the artist who did the design for our exclusive panel pins. You are going to want one of these!
  • Aaron gives his brief thoughts on Splinter of the Mind’s Eye and Aaron and Kay talk about the current bookclub book Heir to the Jedi. Join in on the discussion over at Goodreads!
  • We read listener emails which leads to conversations about Star Wars Weekends, Rogue One, and the Legends universe.
  • Dark Disciple now has a full synopsis and we talk about our excitement level for it. Aaron is more excited than Kay because he is a Quinlan Vos fanboy.
  • We discuss our thoughts on Marvel’s Princess Leia #1.
  • September is going to be busy. We walk through all the titles announced for Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens and speculate more than we probably should.

More Dragon Con coverage from Star Wars Bookworms!

Last episode Aaron and Teresa gave a recap of their experiences at Dragon Con 2014 and shared the audio from the first panel they moderated featuring authors Timothy Zahn and Christie Golden. This episode our hosts talk about their time preparing for and moderating the second Star Wars author panel about canon and Legends.

This panel featured Zahn and Golden again as well as notable Star Wars authors Kevin Anderson, Rebecca Moesta, Michael Stackpole, and Dave Wolverton. The authors talked about what the Legends label means to them, weaving continuities together, the future of Star Wars, and so much more!

And don’t forget. This month we are reading John Jackson Miller’s new Rebels novel, A New Dawn, over at our Goodreads book club. If you haven’t joined us yet, now is the perfect time. A New Dawn is the first novel in the new canon and is a great jumping on point into Star Wars literature. Also, John Jackson Miller himself has joined the book club and is contributing to the conversation over at Goodreads.

Dragon Con 2014: A New Trope Panel Recap

This year saw me, Teresa, Riley, and Aaron all together at Dragon Con! While the convention is over, we are still releasing coverage of it including audio, photos, event coverage, and panel recaps like this one. Dragon Con has so much wonderful content from Marvel panels to parties, from Doctor Who to My Little Pony, and of course the Star Wars track, which had panels, parties, a costume contest, a trivia contest, and more. This Saturday panel was moderated by Teresa Delgado and Aaron Goins, who also have some audio of the panel on their podcast Star Wars Bookworms. The guests were Christie Golden and Timothy Zahn, both well know authors. The discussion revolved around tropes, with the authors talking about overdone story-lines in fiction, as well as classic themes that aid in the effort of telling a story well.
