    We recently had Jason on our podcast and talked with him about Moving Target, The Weapon of a Jedi, The Secret Academy, and The Jupiter Pirates. Spoilers for all (and we definitely have to get Jason back on after December 18 to get his answers for some of our other questions :) ).

    Rey's Survival Guide is cool and everything, but when are we getting Holshef's Poems?

    Not major story stuff, but there are some tidbits that I hope give you more of a sense of the character. And the book complements some other upcoming things. Looking forward to being able to actually talk about this stuff!

    Ha. That would be awesome. (And awesomely unlikely to happen.)

    But you have inspired me to find a place for a Holshef poem as an Easter egg somewhere.

    One thing is sure, jasonfry, you're keeping busy. Busy like an Endorian bee, if I might say so. And loads of new planets for future Atlas updates too! But that's another story.

    Hi, Jason, I sent you some stuff relating to the Telsij/Yong issue. I'd be interested to know how that's going.

    Got it. Sorry, forgot to respond. Thank you for doing that. Probably be a while before I can investigate/raise it.

    I am busy ... but that one isn't me despite the database listing saying so. Should be a few things that really are me hitting databases soon.

    Since people ask, databases can be in error because schedules/plans/assignments get reshuffled, old info gets copied over, a potential author name gets used as a placeholder and not updated later, or sometimes it's just a mistake. It happens.

    Question for folks: On Friday I'm not just appearing on a panel with fellow Star Wars authors but moderating it.

    SO. Authors on the panel are Timothy Zahn, Michael Stackpole, John Ostrander, Ryder Windham and me.

    -- What questions do you have for those folks individually?

    -- What questions do you have for them as a group?

    Leave 'em here or send me a message. And thanks!

    Would it be considered too dumb to ask Ryder Windham if he had an existing Design in mind when he mentioned the TIE infiltrator in the Death Star Owner's Technical Manual?

    Who's your favorite character (or character portrayal, for non-original characters) in the other authors' works?


    Q inspired by Zahn and Stackpole being really good at sharing each others' characters and stuff. I dunno to what extent everyone reads everything or not, but it'd be interesting to know.

    Which of their characters they'd most like to see used in the ST.

    Thrawn and Mara don't count.

    I guess the one question I'd have for Zahn, Stackpole and Ostrander is if asked, would they be willing to contribute any stories to the new canon? For Windham, I'd ask if he is considering writing any SW adult novels/comic series.

    Will we get new canon post endor stories from these authors and which if any fanfavorite legends characters will or could be canonized in their opinion?

    What do they think about the new canon material and what are their expectations for TFA?

    I have interesting questions for Stackpole.

    QUESTIONS FOR MICHAEL A. STACKPOLE:


    1) How old were Lujayne Forge and her sister Inyri when they joined the Rogues?

    2) How old is Horton Salm?

    3) What became of Telsij Cayr, Aggressor Seven? Could she be Champion Five or Champion Six from the beginning of Wedge's Gamble?

    4) What are the names of Gavin Darklighter's children, the two adopted boys then his own children with Sera Faleur? What do you think became of them?

    5) If you could write another X-wing novel, where would you have set it?

    6) Would you be interested in writing an X-wing novel for the new timeline?

    7) What do you think happened to Aril Nunb in the Yuuzhan Vong War?

    8) What do you think happened to Kir Vantai (the Duros admiral from Isard's Revenge), Virar Needa (Lorth Needa's nephew from Wedge's Gamble) and Uwlla Iillor (the Interdictor Cruiser Black Asp/Corusca Rainbow captain)?

    9) Which Sate Pestage died at Krennel's hands? clone or real?

    10) What is Asyr Sei'lar's fate following Isard's Revenge?

    11) How old is Traest Kre'fey in the Dark Tide books and what was his story prior to the Vong War? Was he involved in anything spectacular when he joined the New Republic military in the Galactic Civil War?

    12) Did Inyri Forge ever marry?

    13) When did Alinn Varth and Kral Nevil join the Rogues and what were their stories?

    14) What became of Reme Pollar, Vurrulf and Ghufran from I, Jedi? Also species and homeworlds?
    This is all I want to know :)

    I can't think of anything smart...

    What is your name?
    What is your favourite Lightsaber Colour?
    What is the capital city of the planet Bunduki?
    What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen Loonee Bird?

    Just in case they don't answer, I can help you:

    1) That's what people call me.
    2) Either berl, crynor, nusp, or onsible. I'm not picky.
    3) Äslajä. (Go figure how you're supposed to pronounce it if you don't speak Finnish!)
    4) What do you mean? An Endorian or Corellian Loonee Bird?
