    What are some books you'd like to see in the future, if they do continue with the EU?

    -- A Post DNT/pre LOTF book with Luke, Mara and Ben.

    -- A Ben Skywalker dulogy/trilogy. I'd love for Karen Traviss to write it, but she won't.

    -- An Allana series similar to YJK.

    An anthology. At this point I don't give a darn about the topic. Just slap "Tales of..." on the cover of a book and you've got me sold.

    I was thinking of some good ones the other day but can't remember!

    Now I remember! At least one anyway. A trilogy maybe during the last 1000 years of the Republic following a Smuggler Caravan around the galaxy. Something like Firefly (I think it is).
    A Yuuzhan Vong history

    And the Death Star Plans?
    I wouldn't mind a Dooku novel or a continuation of Plagueis but follows Palpatine instead.
    A story on how the Confederacy came to be would be great as well.

    I'm still holding out for a Katarn Commando novel featuring Kyle Katarn and Judder Page, perhaps detailing how the Katarn Commandos got started and their first mission

    Bu the way, is there any chance that anybody relevant is reading this?

    I would also like to see something about cadet's on the Anaxes Academy, or any other military/navy academy.

    It would be cool to see one that focuses on Sidious and Tyranus. In vein of Plagueis, it can weave across the established continuity into stuff like Outbound Flight, the Approaching Storm, give different perspectives on Episode II, weave into the Clone Wars stuff and leading into Episode III.

    I would like to know more about the Rakatan Infinite Empire. SWTOR gives us hints of a couple of great wars, against the Esh-kar and the 'World Razor' and Dawn of the Jedi has shown a little of their polotics, so this has really pecked my interest. As well Halo did a series about their 'ancient precursor species' so why not Star Wars?

    The Rise and Fall of the Infinite Empire.

    Maybe a series:)

    As long as they leave Bria Tharen out of the equation, I'd love to read this.

    I would love to see a Dooku novel, something that really explores him as both a Jedi and a Sith and features any interaction between him and C'boath.

    Some Legacy era novels. I find the entire premise of Legacy to be great and I've read a little of the comics, but I'm just not a comic book fan and find it really hard to get into them. Give me a novel that details it all or explores other parts of the era and you'll make me very happy.

    As I said before... a novel about the members of the Imperial Court pre-Endor.

    Some novel tie-in to Dark Empire, finally.

    And Tales of the Yuuzhan Vong War.

    Yeah, that, too.

    I think we've had quite enough of those, thank you :p

    Luceno leaving something out of the equation? The novel would reference every Death Star Plans plot we have had and somehow make sense.

    Yeah, you know, somehow is a very unspecific word... ;)

    "The Portrait of Cal Omas". Hey, you could give that to Zahn, he could put Thrawn in. Collecting the painting of the politician who doesn't age.

    It would be cool to finally see the Paul S. Kemp duology.
