SF/Fantasy Newsworthy | January 2013

Star Wars® fans can look forward to more episodes of George Lucas’s wildly popular space opera. The Disney Studio has acquired the rights to the Star Wars® films and plans to continue the series with a seventh episode, which will be set after Episode VI—Return of the Jedi, and be released in 2015. Two more episodes will follow in 2017 and 2019.

The November 1, 2012 launch of Waylines magazine, a new site for science fiction, fantasy, and horror, hopes to re-energize the genre by recapturing the old excitement of speculative fiction. Each online issue will contain four stories in addition to streaming a short film. Expect author interviews and book talks as well.
