    And a novelization of the movie.
    Speaking of prequel novels and novelizations, they've released a prequel and novelization for Pacific Rim: Uprising.
    There are also two tie-in novels for Solo: A Star Wars Story coming out in the next couple months, Most Wanted, and Last Shot. Most Wanted is a YA novel dealing with Han and his friend Qi'ra, Emilia Clarke's character in the movie, before Solo. Last Shot focuses on Han and Lando at three different points in time, while Lando had the Millenium Falcon, after Han got her but before A New Hope, and after The Original Trilogy.

    I was looking around on Amazon earlier today, and I stumbled across a new Planet of the Apes book, PotA: Ceasar's Story. It's being done from an in universe perspective set in the new movie universe, with the idea being that it is a book that Maurice, Ceasar's Orangutan friend, wrote it for Ceasar's son after the War for The Planet of Apes. It's going to cover the events of the movies and some stuff between them, all told from Maurice's perspective. Maurice was one of my favorite characters from the new movies, so I'm very interested in this.
    @Greg Cox, do you know anything about this, or have any idea if this will be using anything from the movies prequel novels?

    It's being written by Greg Keyes, who wrote those prequel novels, so I wouldn't be surprised if he referenced his own books. :)

    Beyond that, I know nothing.

    Ok, good to know.
    I just found out about a new tie-in line that is about to start, MCU novels. The first one will be Thanos: Titan Consumed by Barry Lyga, which will explore Thanos' life leading up to movies, and will cover the events around his appearances in at least Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy.

    Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War: Thanos: Titan Consumed. Three colons. That's how you know you're reading a real tie-in.

    I tend to follow a pattern that I think I picked up from Marco Palmieri, which is to alternate colons and dashes. For instance, Star Trek: Enterprise -- Rise of the Federation: Patterns of Interference.

    Well, and so did the article in actuality, but that's cheating.

    As the author of Star Trek: The Original Series: Legacies: Book One: Captain to Captain, I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked. :)

    Well, let's not forget triumphs like Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Mission: Gamma: Book One: Twilight!

    Though my usual practice is to precede things like "book" and "part" and "volume" with commas.

    As a fan of as many different punctuation marks in a title as possible, I still think they should have used your title for Vanguard: What Judgments come:

    The Taurus Key: A Crystalline Fairy Tale, Founded Upon The Mysteries of the Shedai and the Oppression of Their Servants. It Was Written for Kollotuul, But Others Should Read It

    They knew how to write titles in the late nineteenth, early twentieth century. Edgar Allan Poe did it best:
    The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym. Of Nantucket. Comprising the Details of a Mutiny and Atrocious Butchery on Board the American Brig Grampus, on Her Way to the South Seas, in the Month of June, 1827. With an Account of the Recapture of the Vessel by the Survivers; Their Shipwreck and Subsequent Horrible Sufferings from Famine; Their Deliverance by Means of the British Schooner Jane Guy; the Brief Cruise of This Latter Vessel in the Antarctic Ocean; Her Capture, and the Massacre of Her Crew Among the Group of Islands in the Eighty-Fourth Parallel of Southern Latitude; Together with the Incredible Adventures and Discoveries Still Further South to Which That Distressing Calamity Gave Rise.

    Well, they officially announced my next tie-in... https://mailchi.mp/7bcfb8777d8a/freestoryfornewyear-2915557

    "Candy Jar Books is releasing a series of six titles. The first five fall under the banner of The Laughing Gnome, and follows Sir Alistair, Brigadier Bill Bishop and Dame Anne as they adventure through time, visiting the 1930s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and the 2010s! These are followed by a novel that takes the readers right back to the start of the Brigadier’s journey and reveals the decision that changed his life forever!

    The Laughing Gnome consists of Scary Monsters by Simon A Forward, The Fear of Web by Alyson Leeds, The Danger Men by Nick Walters, Day of the Matador by Robert Mammone, and Lucy Wilson and the Bledoe Cadets by Tim Gambrell. These are followed by On His Majesty’s National Service by David A McIntee & Dr Lynette Nusbacher."

    Is Candy Jar going back to general releases for these, or are they going to be exclusive to their website like the last batch of Lethbridge-Stewarts?

    I just got the first volume of Boom! Studios Eureka comic book series from Amazon today. I loved the show when it was on the air, and I've been curious to check out the comic for a while now. It actually has a story from the show's creators so if nothing else it should at least capture the feel of the show pretty well.

    How the hell do people get enough in the loop to hear about this cool stuff *before* the publications dates are announced? (Or, I should say, stay in the loop enough to hear about such upcoming licences...)
