I've never really thought about it, so I'll give it a quick thought now. AC Crispin: Never read her Han Solo trilogy and for a long time I actually thought she was male, like AC Slater. I've read both of her short stories and liked them well enough. Elaine Cunningham: Dark Journey was the worst of the NJO, imo. I haven't read any of her short stories. Kristine Kathryn Rusch: I actually enjoyed The New Rebellion. Karen Miller: I haven't read any of her work. Vonda N. McIntyre: The Crystal Star......I can't really speak well of it. It has a bizarre amusement to it, but that doesn't make it good. I actually vastly prefer the kids' plot to the Waru plot. Barbara Hambly: Children of the Jedi is just absolutely dreadful with no redeeming qualities whatsoever, possibly the worst EU novel ever published. Planet of Twilight is also terrible, but at least has a few amusing aspects to it. Still terrible, though. Nightlily is amusing enough, though Taster's Choice is forgettable. Haven't read her other short story. Kathy Tyers: The Truce at Bakura is alright. Yea space dinosaurs and entechment. Balance Point is on the low end of the NJO. It's pretty bad really, but nowhere near as bad as Dark Journey. Dat dude's Marakin theory makes it more amusing. The Band's Tale and Oola's Tale were passable. I actually enjoyed The Tale of Bossk. Haven't read her other work. Probably the best of the major female EU authors, though that's not saying much. Judith Reeves-Stevens: Wrote The Tale of EV-9D9 and The Tale of the Wolfman and the Lamproid with her husband Garfield, which I thought were both solid. Marina Fitch: Wrote The Whiphid's Tale with Mark Budz, also solid. Jennifer Roberson: Her Tales on Dannik Jerriko are terrible. Jude Watson: I've only read a few of her young readers' novels and thought they were passable. Deborah Wheeler: The Tale of Ree-Yees is one of the worst of The Tales from Jabba's Palace. Overall poor performance by female SW authors, can't say I'm a fan of any of them. EDIT: Just realized how far off topic we are.
