Overdue Episode 170 – Star Wars: Aftermath (Bonus Episode)
April 7, 2016
For March’s bonus show, friend of the show Eric Van Tassell swings by to chat about the Chuck Wendig’s novel Star Wars: Aftermath.
Eric’s staggering knowledge of all things Star Wars helps us talk about the colossal job handed to Wendig – namely, to write a compelling novel designed to generate excitement about all things Star Wars while also ignoring thirty years of “Expanded Universe” fiction. Naturally, the episode veers in and out of a discussion about the challenges inherent to writing companion fiction, such as balancing the expectations of a rabid fanbase.
Also, Andrew attempts to sum up 7 Star Wars movies in just over 90 seconds. Buckle up!
