    And you referenced one of my favorite obscure bits, the Confederacy meeting on Chanosant! :D

    Congratulations on finally getting the piece on Kligson published. It was well worth the wait. =D=

    While Viva Space Vegas! managed to beat you to publishing what you had in mind for Wermis, I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say that even though it's non-canon I'd just love to read it if you ever put it up on your Tumblr or something. It would be a shame for something that you've worked so hard on to try and get published to never be read by fans. No pressure, of course, but did I mention that it's my birthday tomorrow? :p

    But in all seriousness, thank you for giving us another fantastic chapter. Brilliant, as always.

    Is your birthday the 7th or the 8th?

    The 8th. I live in Australia though, so it just hit a bit over an hour and a half ago. :D

    Excellent. We share a birthday. Happy birthday to us both, time zone vagaries notwithstanding.

    Honestly -- that would be good enough for me. It's far more acknowledgement than he usually gets. :p


    (Happy birthday eve, Jason and Paxis)

    I can't help but feel like we've drifted slightly from the initial purpose of the Official Jason Fry Discussion Thread.

    The Official Jason Fry thinks it's hilarious, but his obscenely bloated ego is punctured by the sadness of discovering new messages aren't about him.

    Which, come to think of it, might not be a bad thing.

    We do? Happy birthday, Jason! I can't help but get the feeling that me getting a happy birthday from one of my favourite authors slightly outweighs your happy birthday from a casual fan, but I nevertheless wish you an amazing day. You deserve it.

    Jason, this may have already been asked, but will your future book, Star Wars Rebels: Servants of the Empire: Edge of the Galaxy be part of the new canon? Are you working with the Story Group? Or are junior novel's like this and Ezra's Gamble separate from the new official continuity?

    PS: Thanks for doing what you do.

    You're welcome -- thanks for the kind words.

    AFAIK it's part of the new canon. Yep, worked with Story Group -- though that wasn't a very mysterious process. See my Eleven-ThirtyEight interview for (a few) more details.

    So just because all Expanded Universe stuff is being classified as "Legends", it won't affect your updates of the Author's Cuts of the Essential Guide to Warfare?

    Thanks for the quick answer! The official statement only mentioned the Del Rey books, so I wasn't %100 sure. Thanks for clearing it up!

    I wouldn't expect it to, no. The May Author's Cut was prepared when LFL had to know the announcement was on the way, and it was business as usual.

    I would classify the Warfare stuff as Legends continuity and would expect the Rebels YA novel to be part of the new continuity.

    But I'm still figuring this out just like everybody else. I'm sure it will be clearer in a few more months. In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy the tales I read/see and try to craft ones for other people to enjoy, and not worry too much about their canon status.

    Ouch time, as they say: Brent Friedman's been dropping bits from the unproduced TCW Season 7/8 scripts on Twitter, and revealed one arc would have taken place on Anaxes and Skako Minor. I created Anaxes. It could've been in TCW. /sobs quietly to self
