    Which upcoming EU works are you most looking forward to?

    I had a thread on this which I kept updating, before the move, but the new search engine for the boards is terrible compared to the old board's google search engine. And there have been so many new releases and announcements since then that it makes sense to start over now... and now we can have a poll instead of me keep doing the averages!

    It's too bad that polls are limited to only 10 choices, though. I didn't list all the reference books coming out for that reason (like the Essential Guide to the Underworld, the 3rd edition of the Essential Guide to Characters, etc.) but I did include "OTHER." I know I couldn't fit in the Sword of the Jedi trilogy but at least that's not likely to be released until 2014, same with the Kemp duology we know nothing about right now... couldn't fit Dark Times in either... and I'm not sure what's going on with some comic book series like Invasion, Jedi, and Blood Ties. Is there anything else I'm forgetting?

    See the poll above for the choices.

    I'm enjoying Dawn of the Jedi, as well as Agent of the Empire. Some of the novels really haven my interest piqued. But Legacy (Vol. 2) is probably what has me the most excited. I really loved the last one, hopefully this one can be just as good.

    LEGACY!

    I really, really hope at Dark Horse starts hyping it soon to generate interest, the same way they did with the first volume. I want interviews, little spoilers, and a issue #0 that sets the stage. :-D

    Kenobi, without a doubt. It's going to be the Darth Plagueis of Jedi-themed books. :cool:

    Rebels because I love the era and Crucible because I'm curious about it's relationship to the ST (and maybe by the time of it's release we'll know something.)

    I'm surprised Kenobi is getting so many votes... what do we know about it, so far? Besides author and main character, of course.

    Author and main character. That's not enough?

    Also it's in a relativly unexplored era.

    I like Obi-wan, but in the past he hasn't been one of my favorite characters to read about. And I still haven't gotten a chance to get JJM's Knight Errant book yet.

    Kenobi & Crucible.

    I would expect Kenobi to comfortably win this. Unless the comic-lovers get in on the act excessively.

    I'm tempted to say Legacy, to see more of that era, but I had to vote for the Kenobi novel by John Jackson Miller, as JJM has a great track record (loved the Knight Errant novel), and Obi-wan is one of my favorite characters, and so the combination of those two factors sounds like it'll make for an awesome novel.

    The first Episode-VII tie-in, obviously.

    Other than that, Kenobi, Crucible (though I'd be content with a summary of that) and the Kemp duology.
