    It occurred to me the other day that there are a sizeable number of sources for Star Wars literature (novels, novellas, short stories etc.).

    1. Novels - Electronic and hard copy
    2. Anthologies - "Tales of.." and Del Rey Samplers
    3. Magazines - Star Wars Insider, Stars Wars Galaxy, Star Wars Gamer.
    4. Role-Playing Sources - Star Wars Adventure Journals.

    Are there any futher sources to add to the following list?

    You forgot Movies. The 6 movies by George Lucas, the clone wars series, and any star wars thing on DVD/VHS.

    I should add, change the settings, so that you could "read" the spoken words. Hence, literature.

    4. Role-Playing Sources - Star Wars Adventure Journals.
    5. Subtitles on the Movies/TV Series
    6. Cereal Boxes
    7. Toilet Paper

    They seem sensible additions to the list.....

    The Essential Guides don't seem to fit anywhere on that list, nor other random guidebooks like the Visual Dictionaries, Dressing a Galaxy, The Star Wars Cookbook II: Darth Malt and More Galactic Recipes, et al.

    I agree, but I was more focussed on Star Wars fiction.

    Ah, fair enough. There are some short fiction pieces in Jedi vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force, as well as some narrative stuff in The Essential Guide to Warfare, off the top of my head.

    oh wait I'm so stupid :oops: -- how could I forget the comics? (for some reason I thought these were mentioned in the OP -- geez I've probably got more of these than all the other sources combined!)

    @Jedi_Ferguson - Great shout, completely forgotten that some of those books contain fiction. Recent article on starwars.com even had unused passages from the Essential Guide to Warfare which may have been fiction.

    @anakinfansince1983 - I think that's probably covered by the "novels" on the list?

    @Barriss_Coffee - Embarrassingly I completely forgot them too, added them to my second list though.

    Were there any audio books which have never been published in paper form?
    Any other role playing sources with fiction in?
    Any other Star Wars magazines which may have had fiction in them?

    The radio dramas of all three original SW films have bonus scenes that you can't find in the films. A lot of West End Games' role playing sources have fiction in them; Heir to the Empire Sourcebook, Dark Empire Sourcebook, etc. Video games also seem like they would fit into your list. Really just browse through here and you'll find a lot of crap.
