Knights of the Old Republic Omnibus releases — plus Geek-Kon schedule, and more!

Okay, I admit it — I’ve got a whole bunch going on right now, and it’s impacted my ability to blog in any kind of a regular fashion. I just finished work on Star Trek: Titan – Absent Enemies — and went headlong into preparations for the release of Star Wars: Kenobi on August 27. I’ve already done a half-dozen podcasts, most yet to go online — and there are other events and surprises in the works.

So a quick recap of things:


• The Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Omnibus Vol. 1 is out today! That collects issues #0 through #18 of the original series in one compact edition. And preorders are already being taken for Volume 2, which contains the second third of the series. That’s out in December. You can find Volume 1 now at your local comics shop.

• Just as I did with KOTOR on this blog years ago, I have been doing a Kenobi countdown all month on Twitter. Just search for the hashtag #KenobiCountdown and follow me to get the latest news.


• I will be on Route 51 on Wisconsin Public Radio on Thursday from 10-11 a.m. You should be able to get the podcast if you’re not in the area.


• I’ve launched a Goodreads drawing for several signed copies of Overdraft: The Orion Offensive. t runs until September 17 — be sure to put your name in the hat.


• I will be at Geek-Kon at the Madison, Wis. Marriott West as a guest of honor this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I’ll be set up to sign at various times, but you can also catch me at these panels:

Friday 8:00 – 9:00 p.m. The Works of John Jackson Miller (Geneva)

Saturday 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. Writing 101 with Monica Valentinelli (Wisconsin)

Saturday 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. Use the Force: A Star Wars Discussion with Rob Weiland (Green Bay/Milwaukee)

Sunday 1:00 – 2:00 pm Turn Your Page and Cough: Health of the Comic Industry (Geneva)


• And then on Tuesday, the 27th, Kenobi releases. The release event is slated for The Booksellers at Laurelwood in Memphis, Tennessee at 6 p.m.; that’s at 387 Perkins Extended. We will have Krayt Dragon Calls, and the 501st, I am told, will have some representatives there.

This doesn’t even get into the bunch of interviews, chats, and podcasts soon to go online — and a few surprises I can’t mention yet. I’ll do my best to get them linked here, but Twitter is usually your best bet to catch that stuff quickly from me. Whew!
