However, Claudia Gray’s new Leia-centric novel Bloodline, out this week, uncovers that mysterious era in some…
If I were to rank Star Trek series—which I could spend the rest of my natural life debating myself on—I would have to include Peter David’s Star Trek: New Frontier in the list.

Last year, a map of Middle-earth, annotated by Tolkien himself, was unearthed in a copy of a book owned by illustrator Pauline Baynes.

Last week, we reviewed the latest two books from Marko Kloos: Angles of Attack and Chains of Command, which we really enjoyed. We particularly liked the authenticity that he’s imbued in his world, and wanted to ask about how his military service played into his fiction.
Sorry, Han Solo and Mr. Sulu. Based on everything we know right now, you’ll never be able to punch a button and travel through “hyperspace,” or go to warp speed. Traveling faster than light is almost certainly impossible. According to scientists, the only way you could personally visit other stars is by taking a long,…
After last year’s fight over the TV rights to Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time, Jordan’s widow Harriet McDougal has said that the legal situation is sorted and a new adaptation is already on its way.

The UK’s Arthur C. Clarke Award just announced its six book finalists for 2016—and the result is a combination of books you might not expect, and books you probably haven’t read yet.
We’ve known for a while that Claudia Gray’s new Leia-starring novel Star Wars: Bloodlines would be uncovering some important backstory about Leia’s soured relationship with the Republic in The Force Awakens. But now we know it’s tackling another huge mystery from the movie: Just how were the First Order and Resistance…
Last night’s Game of Thrones begins with the sightless gaze of Jon Snow, right where we left him last year. But the most striking moments of the episode—including its final shocker—involve the gazes of women, usually without any words at all. There weren’t any dragons or zombies, and only a couple glimpses of a…

We all know who the main characters of George Lucas’ six Star Wars films are: Anakin Skywalker, his son and daughter, and their friends. But who’s the narrator? Turns out Lucas had a crazy theory that makes total sense.
Winter hasn’t arrived yet on Game of Thrones, but there’s still a bit of “winter of our discontent” going on. Season five veered way off George R.R. Martin’s road, with shall we say mixed results. Here’s how to get Thrones back on its game.

We’re probably never going to get another A Song of Ice and Fire book, so you might as well invest in a collectible set of the first five.
