SFF Blog Tour - Kathy Tyers

This month's blog tour is looking at Kathy Tyers, who's work I first encountered through the wonderful Star Wars novel Truce at Bakura. She eventually crossed over to the CBA market, with the Firebird Trilogy and Shivering World.

Of these three the only one that I have fully read is Truce at Bakura. Which takes place almost immediately after the events seen in Return of the Jedi. And shows an unlikely alliance between the alliance and the empire against an invasion of lizardlike aliens. I was very impressed with the creativity and depth shown in this book. That helped move those who served in the empire from being the faceless two-dimensional villians.

Be sure to visit Kathy Tyers' website at www.kathytyers.com

Kool, that's the first I've heard about her Star War novels (besides that she wrote them). It sounds intriguing.

But I thought you liked lizardlike aliens?! You're cheering for the wrong team!

My aliens are not lizardlike, thank you very much. They are dinosoid, and dinosaurs are not lizards :p

Hi Stuart --

I really wasn't trying to do lizards, either. I was thinking saurian, too. Something like Psittacosaurus. That's why they talked in birdcalls.

Thanks for the kind words, and please tell your friends who require "blogger" registration for guest comments that it's the only reason I didn't/couldn't thank them, too!

Best,
Kathy
