SDCC 2017: Christie Golden Writing a New World of Warcraft Novel

Christie Golden surprised via Twitter announcing that she is currently writing a new World of Warcraft novel. Her last novel was technically World of Warcraft: War Crimes (2014) set at the end of Mists of Pandaria. Feels so long ago, right? Her most recent projects have been focused on the Warcraft film: Warcraft: Durotan and the Warcraft Official Movie Novelization. Christie has also being busy with novels based on other franchises.

The question is whether her 6-month work at the Blizzard Headquarters is specifically for this new novel, or if it also includes game story development.

World of Warcraft: Troll Wars by Paul S. Kemp

French-fansite Judgehype discovered a new entry in the Amazon.de database for an upcoming novel coming from Panini. Apparently, there are plans for World of Warcraft: Troll Wars by Paul S. Kemp. He is an american fantasy author known to fans of Star Wars, and Forgotten Realms.

This novel is not yet listed in the United States, and searches online at this moment aren’t shedding any other sources except for the german-version of Amazon and another book finder list. So this was a really good (oops?) find. I am currently investigating, and will update as soon as I fetch something.

Illidan Stormrage Polyresin Statue Coming November 3

illidan-stormrage-polyresin-statue-1Blizzard Entertainment announced they will have the Illidan Stormrage Polyresin Statue available for pre-orders on November 3rd at the Gear.Blizzard.com website.

The video below shows the step-by-step history of how the Illidan Stormrage statue was designed, modeled in a computer, then some parts were 3D printed, moving on to hand-crafting with a razor, a welding gadget, and other tools; and then hand-painted until a masterpiece is born.

Get your wallet ready, and your keyboard-thumb ready to press the order button, because this baby is going to get out of stock before you can even finish to say out of stock. Just see how quick BlizzCon tickets get sold out in under 5 minutes as an example of how ruthless some collectible fans are when it comes to snatching home a beauty like this statue.

 

Illidan Stormrage Polyresin Statue

Standing 24 inches tall and made of polyresin, this colorful sculpture of Illidan will make the perfect addition to your collection. The piece is sculpted by Blizzard Senior Sculptor Brian Fay and features original paint by Senior Illustrator Laurel D. Austin.

Supplies of this highly detailed sculpture are limited — so head over to the Blizzard Gear Store beginning November 3 to get yours before it’s too late!

 

NYCC 2016 – Scholastic Giving Free Excerpt Copies of World of Warcraft: Traveler

The World of Warcraft: Traveler is nigh on our hands. While exploring NYCC 2016, I found the Scholastic room 1E03 at the basement level of the Javits Center (beneath the South Concourse). After going downstairs, turn to your left (behind the stairs) and keep going (in the direction where the 34th street would be if you were outside) until you find ROOM 1E03.

The staff told me you can grab a FREE excerpt copy of WORLD OF WARCRAFT: TRAVELER from the table.
