    We shall never speak of that again (esp. since it's not even canon anymore ;)).

    Waru exists on a higher plane than canon. He simply is.

    Never really understood the fanbase that Waru got.

    I would love to see the species introduced in Crystal Star in the NEU.

    I like the caveat on canon with Fake Wedge. You wrote your story so that it didn't outright say that the chap next to Luke in the briefing room is Col.

    I think the liberalism with a certain point of view has been refreshing. I suspect the upcoming Luke novel is the same.

    Hoping that Essential Atlas and Essential Guide to Warfare means that a lot of the old EU pre TPM history will get re-canonized.

    I hope not, I don't want to see the new stuff weighed down by old stuff recreated

    Out of curiosity, what was the scene you first picked to write?

    Also- the Mon Cala fan in my laughed out loud at the Kelemah line about humans looking alike. It was genuinely funny, plus a nice reminder that the galaxy isn't only seen through human eyes. ;)

    You did a damned fine job weaving all the various reasons/concepts as to why Wedge pulled out of the Trench Run. Ditto showing his heroism and humility. Thank you for giving Wedge a moment to shine, he's been sadly missed of late and your story did great justice to the character, both canon & Legends. :)

    I don't think they need to get into the specific details as much as the broad strokes. The Formation and expansion of the Republic, the Alsakan Conflicts, Pius Dea Crusades, the mapping of the hyperspace lanes, etc...

    But that will only lead to people, deliberately or not, will have what happened in those mentioned eras in the back of their mind when creating the new stuff, or if they are lacy just copy what happened in OEU. I rather see them them use neutral terms like: the Founding, First expansion, First Great Expansion, the Great Split, Consolidation Era, etc.; and/or come up stuff that's references to other works, like: the Five Jeddak Conflict, Tannhäuser Expansion, the Republic-Mongo War, etc.

    I had avoided this thread until I could read your story and oh boy did it deliver!

    Thanks for the notes too!

    Well, "Fake Wedge": checked!

    Next item in your list is "Bigger Luke", right? RIGHT??? :p

    Well hello! Welcome to The Last Jedi week. So exciting -- can't wait to see everyone discussing this movie.

    I've got two books coming out "day and date," as they say in the business.

    Bomber Command -- a replica journal along the lines of Rey's Survival Guide, focused on Paige Tico, her experiences as a gunner aboard a Resistance bomber, and her relationship with her sister Rose. It's a complement to Elizabeth Wein's novel Cobalt Squadron.

    The Last Jedi: Incredible Cross-Sections -- you know how these books go by now. Same team as TFA -- me and Kemp Remillard. Cool details, lore, etc. (Got an interview coming up on this one so don't want to step on more details.)

    And if you wanna look ahead to March, the novelization. (And Rose Tico: My Resistance, but that doesn't seem to be listed yet.) Gotta stay mum on the novelization for now.

    As always, those links will support the Jason Fry Beer & Mortgage Fund. We sincerely thank you for your patronage.

    More importantly, ENJOY THE MOVIE!

    Looking forward to it. It opens on Dec 14 in the UK and I have a ticket to an 11AM 3D showing at the local cinema.

    I'm looking forward to the Bomber Command (not sure I knew that even existed before) and the novelization.

    Warning: Major Spoilers to TLJ

    What does Luke do at the end of the movie? Is it a new force technique similar to astral projection or is he simply force ghosting? If it's the second, would the other force ghosts like Obi Wan, Yoda or Anakin also be able to interact with the world like Luke does?

    Another thing. Do we get the background history of Snoke in your Novelization of TLJ?

    Sorry, but will be staying mum on the novelization for a while yet.

    I'm that kind of excited where I'm bouncing up and down, and so happy I kind of feel like throwing up.

    Basically how I was at Prom.

    Fun deep dive into TLJ Incredible Cross-Sections with Eleven-ThirtyEight and our own @AdmiralNick22. For those interested, I break down how I approach the writing of a CS spread....

    If you use an @, and then start writing their name, you should be given the option to autofill.
