Overdue Episode 170 – Star Wars: Aftermath (Bonus Episode)

April 7, 2016

Andrew Cunningham Craig Getting

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!
