    Hmm, so a breach of the Stradley Tattooine rule?

    Supposedly they said they're not making any new announcements until they know what's happening in Episode VII.

    So, the only news I can find to have come out of the DR panel so far is the cover reveal for James S.A Corey's Honour Among Thieves. Anyone got anything else?

    I can't remember the last SW book cover I really loved. Death Troopers, maybe?

    I guess their approach to the covers of Big 3 novels is the same as their approach to the content.

    I think that might be worse than anything we've seen before, even. That's, what, basically just three promotional pictures spliced together?

    Can I just say that the Behind the Creatures panel title sounds a little... kinky?

    So anyway, I'm guessing we won't officially know the fate of the EU until the first trailer for Episode 7 hits, or they start punching out toys with different Skywalker or Solo offspring. Settle in, folks! Try not to eat each other in aggravation in the interim!

    Spectre of the Past didn't. But that's the only example I can find at a quick glance at my shelf.

    Best get printed with only the word SWEARHAT on the cover when it comes out here.

    And Blood Oath just sits in the corner, watching. Waiting.

    Then the bar door gets kicked in by a really hacked-off Nomi Sunrider....

    Report on the DR panel. Basically a whole load of nothing. The fact they're actually acknowledging the EU is in flux is almost shocking. Apparently a conspicuous absence of any mention of SOTJ. Unclear from the report if no one asked or if no one got an answer.

    Anyone got any uninformed speculation? I'm thinking if they knew for sure that they weren't gonna be able to publish either the Kemp duology or SOTJ they'd up and cancel them? On the other hand, how long did it take to get a final answer on Blood Oath or the Nomi Sunrider novel...

    The first trailer will begin with an EU-themed Alderaan getting destroyed by an ST-themed Death Star.

    And Mandorla, Imperial Commando 2, and George Lucas's Monsters and Aliens by Robert J. Sawyer, connecting our galaxy and the Star Wars galaxy, are locked up in the basement.
