    Stover, Miller, Luceno, Reaves, and Perry are all they need as far as quality Star Wars novels are concerned. Get rid of the rest and beg Sean Stewart to return.

    So very torn right now. Love the concept of novels being planned with movies/tv as canon.

    Forget that. Ars Dangor. Luceno cannot omit him this time. Dangor is the one who promoted Tarkin to grand moff.

    He's deeply involved with that man's career.

    WE WANT ARS DANGOR.

    I want this to be the start of the swashbuckling Young Tarkin Adventures, battling insidious pirates in the days of the Outland Regions Security Force.

    Alongside Screed and Dodonna.

    It would make ANH more fun.

    I can't wait to read more about Captain Tarkin.

    I've long felt that Luceno should write a Tarkin novel. Tarkin clearly knows more than the average Imperial citizen and has a special connection to Palpatine and Vader, connections that have long made me curious.

    I think this can only be seen as a good sign.

    Struck by a passing thought. He may technically get away with omitting Ars Dangor this time, as for the moment, Ars Dangor may no longer be canon. :p

    I can still ban ex mods, you know. Just saying. :p


    Ars Dangor is non-negotiable. I cannot see how the new canon could possibly hold up without him.

    I very much like the odds of Lars Andgor appearing at some point.

    I don't see why Ars Dangor wouldn't appear. If it were up to me, I would put Luceno in charge of the entire EU.

    Alternate as necessary according to the progression of the NeU.
