    It was awesome! He is so interesting.

    Did you know that he wrote three Star Wars novels in two and a half years at the same time he was doing 6 others???

    He's insane but cool! I'll post a link to the recording once it's up if you like?

    Yes please! It would be great to hear him talk about his works and processes.

    Do you listen to the ForceCast? If you are interested, they have done wonderful interviews over the years with other authors such as Timothy Zahn, James Luceno... not to mention artists, cast and crew members from the films and TCW and others. I wish their site has a search function to make it easier to hunt them down amongst their other content but I have to say I really love Jimmy Mac's interview with John Rhys-Davies.

    Oh I haven't, can you post the link? Specifically if you have the link for that interview that would be awesome. I'm obsessed with podcasts. Having trouble recoding the video (damn you webinar system) but hopefully should have it up soon :S

    He's kind of semi-mentored me Adalia and I love him to pieces.

    Also super exciting is I might be able to organise a webinar with Claudia Christian, Ivonova from Babalyon 5. Fingers crossed!

    The site is http://forcecast.net and their show is also available on iTunes and they have their own iOS and Android app. They have several shows happening, they do the Weekly ForceCast which is the main show, there's The Clone Wars Roundtable discussions that happens for each episode that airs in the US, Jedi Journals for books and comics, Collectors Edition for collectibles and specials amongst all those. The show has been running for about 6 years now so there is a looooot of great content.

    For the John Rhys-Davies interview from 2009: http://forcecast.net/story/showarchives/Microcast_In_The_Cantina_With_John_RhysDavies_124826.asp
    He was in Sydney a few weeks ago and I got to see him at a special screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark, such an amazing person and a captivating storyteller!

    I hope things work out for the webinar, that would be awesome!! Keep us updated with how it goes :D

    Sometimes I detest being at the bottom of the planet! But you know I detest it more when the US people assume that they are the centre of this planet and we all must revolve around them.

    No kidding! Unfortunately the US market/fan base is bigger. But I made sure it wasn't an abominable hour for us to attend (or me to run it!). It's at 12:30pm on Friday afternoon in Aus :)

    You may not be as naughty as me though, I listen to them at work!

    Here's the link anyway :) http://tiny.cc/MTAClaudia. I know George Takei has a book out recently, maybe I can hit him up next! Any Star Wars peeps with books out at the moment? I haven't heard anything recently. Do you know Corellian?

    I know Pablo Hidalgo has released the Essential Reader's Guide and Timothy Zahn is working or almost ready to release his upcoming book: Scoundrels. I'll have to look further and find out what else is coming out.
