    the last good big three novel was "Conviction" in my opinion

    Millennium Falcon by Luceno was good for Han and Leia too.

    How about Choices of One? It had its flaws- but at least we got to see the Big Three together.

    Don't really consider CoO a big 3 book, it's good but not when marketed as that.

    I thought Scoundrels was excellent...

    Has anyone read Good Hunting from Insider yet? They said there's some connection to Crucible in that. Maybe provide some hints.

    one more positive thing if/when the Big 3 finally sign their contracts for the ST: Del Rey (or whichever publisher will hold the rights in the future) will get to use up to date-pictures of hamill/fisher/ford :)

    As if the big three have been denying picture rights to Del Rey

    More like Del Rey has denied picture rights to the OT Big Three.

    AFAIK Del Rey (and Bantam before) only had the rights to use pictures/likes of the OT. They were not allowed to portrait the Big 3 the way they aged in reality. that's why Luke/Hamil Han/Ford etc. more or less looked the same on the bookcovers through the year, even though they did age IU. I think there was even a thread on this topic way back when. if not, then the discussion came up in new novel threads as soon as the covers were released.

    That sounds incredibly stupid, I can credit it, but jeez it's dumb!

    I have a feeling the Big 3 aren't likely to be on many book covers after Episode 7 because they'll rightly star the new characters.

    Luke is not old in the start of episode 7. Why must he take a backseat??? I want more Luke dammit

    Because, as much as we might like Mark Hamill, it wouldn't work out well.

    They hadn't locked down the timeline last I heard. And, even if Luke wasn't old, Mark Hammill most certainly is, so as @AlyxDinas says it would not work out well.

    From T-Den on facebook:

    "And so it begins -- readers contacting me to ask whether the crazy CRUCIBLE spoilers they've seen on theforce.net boards are legit. So far . . . nope, nope, and a BIG nope.

    Some important stuff happens, but not THAT.

    I have no idea where people are getting this stuff . . . certainly not from the book I wrote. And the page count is 302 (316 with the JJM KENOBI sample chapter at the end), not the 250 they have apparently listed.

    In a recent Globe issue at the grocery store, there's a bunch of pictures'of Mark rummaging through cigarette garbage for buds he took and smoked em in his car. I died a little inside.

    Maybe people are outright spiting Troy Denning then just because.
