    I like how I think, too. If I didn't, it'd be a bit of an issue. :p

    If the original topic is still in vogue, then I want to to draw everyone's attention to The Crystal Star by Vonda N. McIntyre. Werewolves, centaurs, alternate realities, and the inability to keep track of Luke's lightsaber color will forever mark it as one of the more genuinely bizarre and ignored pieces of SW lore.

    If you came expecting to see the Sith as written in Knight Errant, you won't get that here–but you still won't be disappointed, because John Jackson Miller can write kriffing everything.

    Fixed.

    Eeeeh... the Fate

    He didn't even get the chance, which was the point. If the Post-NJO was him, Allston, and Zahn, we'd presumably have a much more agreeable GFFA future.

    Interesting. I was not aware he ever showed interest, aside from Lost Tribe of the Sith linking with Fate of the Jedi.

    Don't know if he did show interest. But he didn't write anything round then...

    Everyone, including Lucas himself in shooting down the darksiders as the villains of the NJO as per TERC, says a dark side society can't work out, because they will just implode on themselves; unfortunately for them, they should have waited until John Jackson Miller had at it with the Lost Tribe before coming to such an inaccurate and downright boring conclusion.

    Is this going to become the new "the dark side is a cancer"?

    Millennia of history chronicling the development of an isolated society -- which happens to be made up of Sith, [so/despite that, choose one] it's utterly entertaining!

    And now I have to ask: is it a fun read if you ignore some of the stupidity and continuity issues?

    There once was a Sith girl from Kesh,
    whose ancestors started afresh,
    on a tropical isle
    they commanded through guile
    and creating a great deal of mess.

    Indeed, this and The Crystal Star never get brought up in EU continuity.

    Curiously, while the idea of an interdimensional creature was thought by most SW readers and writers to have no place in Star Wars, apparently this idea was reversed with Abeloth and Mortis. Though FotJ did give us the Lost Tribe of the Sith. Thus bringing us back to full circle.

    (See what I just did?) ;)

    Abeloth and company are still just Force gods, basically--extrapolations of the existing cosmology. Waru remains, I believe, the only explicitly other-dimensional being.

    Well, Abeloth and Co. are certainly more fantasy while Waru is a bit more sc-fi, but I still think of Waru everytime someone mentions 'beyond shadows; and the Throne of Balance and Mortis...

    I keep expecting to hear of a golden scaly thing in some obscure Star Trek novel or Marvel comic. Seriously, Waru had no place even existing in the SW universe, let alone originating there.
