    I know one thing I would not mind is Stackpole getting a chance to come back and working with the new younger wraiths.

    Stackpole is Rogues, Allston is Wraiths. Allston adopted Corran as the go to Jedi, and also write Antilles, Fel and Tainer families often.

    Allston has done the most with random Jedi in the back ground,
    Valin Horn (Human Male) Son of Corran, Went Crazy, Katarn vs. Caedus Battle, Centerpoint Strike Team
    Jysella Horn (Human Female) Daughter of Corran, Went Crazy
    Seha Dorvald (Human Female) Apprentice to Octa, Insider for Jacen, crushes on Valin and Jacen, Infiltrates Senate
    Doran Tainer (Human Male) Son of Tyria and Kell Tainer, Size of "Dwarf Wookiee", Known for crazy plans
    Bandy Geffer (Human Male) Senior Apprentice, Helps out ALOT
    Kolir Hu'lya (Bothan Female) Team Purella, Katarn vs Caedus Battle, Gives Valin attitude
    Sanola Ti (Human Female) Rakehell Squadron, Niece of Kiranna Ti
    Tiu Zax (Omwati Female) Infiltrates Corellia.
    Sothais Saar (Chev Male) Hates Slavery, Used alot in FotJ

    I would love to see him take a handful of these Jedi and make an awesome novel

    It's not uncommon to get sick of something after doing it a certain number of times. Most writers seem to prefer creating new things over continuing old ones.

    I completely agree, a plot moving forward and changing as opposed to X Wing mission after slightly different X Wing mission (not that I am complaining I am NOT) But I heard Allston pitched a few book ideas to Del Rey/LFL during a panel but I don't know what they were

    i thought that was something new. Since when do Mara and a squad of stormtroopers look like deformed bobble heads?

    I like that while we have now discussed the new Shakespeare Star Wars novel, the Kemp Duology, Zahn's hopes for the Maestro Trilogy and Fry has given some new info on his books in his thread, we are no closer to what the original new novel is about.

    Don't forget we also discussed the Battle of Hoth because, you never know, that false rumour could actually end up being the case. :p

    io9 just announced our upcoming novel, STAR WARS: MAUL: LOCKDOWN. From Joe Schreiber, New York Times bestselling author of STAR WARS: DEATH TROOPERS, comes a delirious, action-packed follow-up to last year's DARTH PLAGUEIS. In case you can’t tell from the cover art: It’s a Darth Maul Prison novel. We've been dying to tell you guys about it. Check out a plot synopsis and cover art, and look for the book next year. (FP)

    Pretty disappointed with the Darth Maul novel myself. Not my kinda thing at all. Even the title on the article just sounded kina...why? to me. "The guy who put zombies in the Star Wars Universe is sending Darth Maul behind bars." Deffo gonna give that a miss.

    Darth Maul = YAWN

    I swear that Del Rey's creative tank has been running on nothing but fumes for that last several years.

    I'm okay with this, but I did black out for a second when the article called it "the follow-up to Darth Plagueis".
