    Oh, that sexuality was not repressed, let me tell you.

    Hmm. [face_thinking]

    I can see Cruise. I can also see Kilmer. Which makes it even more perfect, really.

    ZOMG, YES!

    This is brilliant news! [face_cowboy] (I feel the hat is appropriate given the Western style)

    I predict this is going to end just before Ben rocks up to help Luke in the Jundland Wastes in ANH...

    Will "Go haunt Yoda!" be in this?

    I sense a disturbance in the forums. No, wait, that's optimism. Carry on. Congratulations for JJM for a hardback. While reading Lost Tribe of the Sith I was really amazed how the writing style got better and better. From Savior onwards it was golden, and Pantheon-Secrets-Pandemonium were awesome, especially the character of Varner Hilts.

    Organa
    Tarkin
    Jade (well, that would be more of a Zahn book)

    I want a Tarkin book so bad. Provided it's by a good author who researches the billion obscure sources on him.

    So, I guess, Luceno.

    Oh, there's surely an evolution in style -- those stories were written over the course of several years. Everything from "Purgatory" onward came after writing the Knight Errant novel, so I had a few new experience points to spend. (I did make some minor revisions to the earlier material when we did the Collected Stories, but it wasn't an entirely new draft.)

    Since the storyline itself was always leaping forward in time, my own multi-month gaps between returns to Kesh didn't feel as strange to me as they might otherwise have; they may have even helped. I probably wouldn't suggest those kinds of breaks between writing chapters of any other kind of serial, though -- it gets hard to pick up where you left off. I actually just posted my notes on the whole project a few days ago.

    A long but good day. Thanks for the kind words, all!

    Well, based on the movies, 5-8 minutes after he steps into a bar and orders a drink.

    Sweet, looking forward to this! :D

    I'm not really an audiobook listener, but if they do make an audiobook of this, I hope they get James Arnold Taylor to do it. [face_praying]

    Lando, he deserves more attention and JJM did a great job with Gryph and Rusher so he can write good rogues.

    I posted on your blog once or twice. Did you wait for the news to finally get an avatar?

    Lando definitely deserves his own "Rebels" book. JJM could do a fantastic job with him.

    Well, how about this? A new SW project is announced and is met with....

    Unanimous approval and enthusiasm !? [face_hypnotized]:eek:

    The apocalypse of Daiman is upon us!

    I actually typed Calrissian at first, but honestly he has a decent amount of coverage of that era between the Han Solo Trilogy and the Lando Adventures.
    I'd rather see Tarkin, who we only have a little bit of his history, but a lot of tantalizing hints. And it could include Ackbar too, to get Nick onboard with the idea.

    Although I love JJM works (Knight Errant, Kotor, Lost tribe), that man turns everything into gold... but here I'm not interested. I had enough of the original star wars characters, enough with the clone wars and darth vader's adventures. The only good thing is that we don't know anything about Obi wan in a post clone wars era.
    I really would have love new characters in a new era... but it's JJM, I give him a chance.

    Cause it needed to be said twice.

    When is it set, or will it go over several years?

    See? See?
    I've said it before and I'll say it again now -- whatever weird decisions LFL or Del Rey seem to be making every once and again, I'll never give up on the franchise. At least every other year they manage to surprise me with a project that's (to me) totally out of left field, and at the same time completely awesome.

    Also, wicked artwork. If they take that as the cover, this might just be the first SW hardcover I'll buy since Vector Prime.

    This is great news.

    This exactly why I'll never stop buying the books.

    Also, I love that you chose the Allana & Anji art as your pic :D
