#01. Heir to the Empire — Thrawn and On and On (A Star Wars Literary Podcast)

7 Mar

The Expanded Universe may be gone, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take a vacation in it!  In the first episode of Thrawn and On and On, Kate Sherrod, Sarah Chorn, Rachael Acks, and Shaun Duke discuss Timothy Zahn’s classic, Heir to the Empire.  Also included:  we explain how we became Star Wars fans (one of us is a newbie!), and Kate shares a Star Wars-themed sonnet!

We hope you enjoy the episode!

Since this is our first episode, we hope you’ll take a moment to tell us what you think.  Want to suggest a book?  Think we should add a feature?  Send us an email at skiffyandfanty[at]gmail[dot]com!

Show Notes:

Our new intro music comes “Juno” by Chronox (CC BY 4.0), which has been slightly modified to include sound effects and for length purposes.

That’s all, folks!  Thanks for listening.  See you next week.

    So, I’m about halfway through my first Star Wars novel, after planning on reading one for a about 17 years (Darth Plagueis). Wondering what you guys would recommend as the penultimate Star Wars novel for knowledge of the universe and for literary skill?

      That is an excellent question, Owen. If you don’t mind, I’m going to include it in our next episode on Claudia Gray’s Bloodline. 🙂
