    I agree with the bolded statement: like what you like and don't sweat the rest. We all hope that they don't screw with canon or continuity, but if they do it'll still be Star Wars.

    The problem with that is, Star Wars isn't like Star Trek, people such as myself bought into the EU specifically because Star Wars is one big story about the history of an entire galaxy, only for LFL and Del Rey screw up things royally with TCW and the post-NJO, respectively.

    And I would agree with you. The continuity of the story is the reason I like Star Wars so much. But whatever happens is going to happen and there will be nothing we can do about it except to either continue reading the books or not. That's all I'm saying. At least as of right now I see myself wanting to continue reading in the EU because I like Star Wars that much. That of course could change, but for me I'm willing to continue. I actually have the pleasure of coming to the EU rather late in life, about 2 -3 years ago, and as a result I have purchased a ton of book, so I'll have enough material to keep me going for some time before I get into any of the changes.

    any news on the attack of the clones expanded visual dictionary?

    Has it been cancelled?:-(

    I hope we get an internal schematic of Dooku's lightsaber... I want one for Sidious' too in the ROTS expanded version

    Let's hope that doesn't happen.

    I love James S.A.Corey. Its a fake name for Daniel Abraham and Ty Frank (George R R Martins assistant) but their Expanse series is absolutely fantastic science fiction, if you haven't read it yet I strongly reccomend you do. Its three books in currently.

    Am I the only one concerned by how few books there are on the schedule?

    Episode VII is the answer to all of your questions.

    I'm sure people felt that way about the initial Marvel comics as well. And many of those characters and situations have since been deemed apocryphal or retconned into the ground. I myself have read every expanded Universe novel up to this point, save for Annihilation and Mercy Kill. As much as I'd be disappointed to see those stories deemed non or alternate canon, I would still have my collection and the memories to go with them. I've always enjoyed how stories and franchises evolve, and if Star Wars needs to evolve and contradict in order for us to get a quality Sequel Trilogy, then so be it.

    That's sort of my concern.

    On another note, I had ordered Kenobi to my bookstore, expecting it to arrive next week on the release date. I was surprised yesterday to get a call that my order had arrived. A week early? Score.

    Is there a Razor's Edge thread? If not, one should be made since it's within a month of release. I'd do it, but I'm no good with all the stuff that goes into a good OP...

    Do not debate canon.

    I think that references more to what is canon and what is not.
