    Before Thrawn I'm assuming? They wouldn't do Post Rebels without Filoni.

    I wonder if we get into the political landscape of the ascendancy and how they differ from both empire and the republic. Sooner or later this will become the new empire that herous have to fight against.

    Wasn't Hand of Thrawn split into 3 books in Germany or Japan?

    I think Visions of the Future was split into two books in some countries.

    Thrawn-style analysis:
    Post lays claim to cynicism. Deployment of emoticon is an attempt to support it. Jid cannot hide that his commitment to cynicism is lacking, as evidenced by his posting history. Language used clearly indicates he will be won over with minimal effort.

    Excellent. I hope Zahn writes a Thrawn book a year until he dies.

    One could argue that Survivor's Quest was a spiritual third chapter to the Hand of Thrawn duology in an epilogue sort of way.

    But, no matter- a trilogy of trilogies, a quadrilogy of trilogies, we end up with us = :D

    Lucasbooks are really going all in on the Thrawn-Zahn stuff, though. I guess now that he's canon they want as much Zahn-penned stuff on the guy as they can get.

    (Though I'm assuming sales numbers and name recognition play a factor as well)

    Book one should be called The First Command. Probably won't happen but I can wish.

    I wonder if they recanonise Thrawn's brother. And if he was a family man before. Give us a Thrawn jr.
