Hey all -- With some extra time this past year, I gathered together some different newspaper clippings from the coverage that followed the release of "Vector Prime" in 1999. I figured maybe the forum would like to see some of these. It was quite a media event -- this sampling of newspaper articles (sometimes nationally syndicated) is only a small sample of what there was -- but I figure it's kind of a neat thing to see all put together. Chewbacca's death received full-on memorials, tributes, reactions -- the whole lot. It should be said the release of the New Jedi Order series was quite the deal, with a Mark Hamill-narrating-as-Luke commercial and poster distributed around, so it would make sense that this provoked the widespread coverage it did. I know the book itself stayed on the NYT Bestsellers List for 4 weeks. Within these articles, I believe the forum itself gets a mention (as well as a specific user, wormie2). Feel free to share if you have any memories of this event, or your reactions to this slice of SW (and EU) history. Anyway, enjoy the clippings and little trip down memory lane!
