The High Republic's Writers on Bringing New Voices and Fresh Perspectives to the Star Wars Galaxy

The High Republic is one of the biggest gambles the publishing branch of the Star Wars galaxy has taken since Lucasfilm was sold to Disney and its entire canon was rebooted. As Star Wars begins to explore the pathways of streaming and lies waiting at the box office for a few years, it’s unequivocally a setting the…Read more...

Star Wars: The High Republic Is as Refreshing as It Is Familiar

Adding something truly new to the canon of Star Wars media has to strike a delicate, daunting balance. Anything so vastly removed from what we know about the franchise—particularly the Skywalker saga—has to balance feeling worthy of being called new, while paradoxically still delivering that vague, yet tangible, feel…Read more...

Lana Del Rey Responds To Student Newspaper Article About Whether She Should Be Cancelled

Last month, Lana Del Rey held a surprise signing for her new poetry book Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass at a Barnes & Noble in Los Angeles. At the signing, Del Rey wore a mask that appeared to be mesh, and this pissed a lot of people off. Infections disease specialist Dr. Peter Chin-Hong said he was “not very confident” that Del Rey’s mask would help prevent the spread of COVID-19: “You might as well be wearing nothing.” Del Rey is a veteran of dumb public controversies, and this one follo...

A Look Inside Empire Strikes Back's Anniversary Anthology Reveals the Unsung Hero of Echo Base

Sure, Luke Skywalker did some psychic magic and blew up a superweapon. Princess Leia is a charismatic commander on the front lines. Han Solo is ride or die for his friends and fellow rebels, especially if he can cut up a tauntaun in the process. But the Rebel Alliance is not three people. It’s built on the shoulders…Read more...

Chaos Rising Is a Fascinating, Inscrutably Alien Look Into One of Star Wars' Most Mysterious Species

Star Wars races, by and large, aren’t really all that alien. The ones that are tend to be there more for background flavor, because the races we do spend time with are either humans, or just human-ish enough that what little we learn about their cultures already feels familiar. But the Chiss, the people of Thrawn…Read more...

In Star Wars’ current canon, we’ve seen Thrawn’s rise as one of the Empire’s most cunning Grand Admirals.

Chiss Names Are Some of Star Wars' Coolest Bullshit

Star Wars is full of cool bullshit which is, in many ways, why we love such an absurd behemoth in the first place. Space wizards with laser swords? Extremely bullshit, and very cool (some of the time). Blaster pistols? They go pew pew, what’s not to love. Starfighters? They go pew pew and fly in space, what’s not to…Read more...

The Inciting Incident of Star Wars' High Republic Is a Horrifying Technological Disaster

New war, same as the old war. We’re so used to Star Wars’ cyclical saga at this point, we were just waiting for The High Republic to reveal some ancient evil or lingering secret Imperial force that could put its generation of Jedi at their peak to the test.

Redondo Beach couple stranded in Peru while on Amazon cruise, thanks to coronavirus crisis

It was to be an escape from a world fast becoming engulfed by a deadly virus. But in the end, the south Redondo Beach couple found no escape, not even deep in the Peruvian Amazon jungle. Now, Alison Clay-Duboff, 56, and her husband, Ken, 68, are stuck, quarantined on a river cruise boat in the middle of Peru. Neither have tested positive for the newly emergent coronavirus. They are among Americans who are stranded all across the world — 1,400 in Peru alone — this week, desperately trying to make...

Who Will Win—and Who Should—at the 2020 Grammys

Awards season rolls on, with the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards right around the corner on Jan. 26. And after more than six decades of music celebrating its own on the industry’s biggest night, we know better than to put too much stock into how the prizes are allocated; even Adele tried to give her Grammy away to Beyoncé back in 2017. But one thing the Grammys have going for them is the element of surprise: last year, underdog country singer Kacey Musgraves stunned everyone by taking home Album ...

Best way to read Elric?

This isn't even really an ebook related question, so don't get too hung up on the morass of Elric ebooks. So the Elric story was published two different ways: Originally, five short stories were published as Stealer of Souls and four Novellas were published as Stormbringer. Later, the series was expanded and reworked into six (slim) volumes again ending with Stormbringer. (I know there are additional novels and stories later, but for this discussion, I'm comparing the sixties originals and t...
