View Full Version : Novels beyond the NJO?

I was reading TheForce.Net's Books page (here (http://www.theforce.net/books/index.html)) and I noticed this, from a CineScape report:


The end of the NEW JEDI ORDER books will not, however, mean an end to original novels using the characters of Luke, Leia and Han. Other novels, set chronologically between RETURN OF THE JEDI and NEW JEDI ORDER will be published.

Huh? Did I miss something? Will the NJO books be, chronologically, the last Star Wars novels?

Is that what's just planned for the time being (til, say EPIII)? Or is it meant as a swan song to the entire SW novel series? Am I just misinterpreting what was said?

If the NJO is The End...then, that just kinda sucks. I wanted to see what happened afterwards.

You can. In your RPG group most easily and chances are, you'll hit the soul of Star Wars better than some of the authors of NJO.

But i know what you mean about the end of a book series. I wish some of mine could go on... but then you start running into book series that just, won't end! Like those Recluse novels by Modesitt. Ugh!

Thanks for the link, Frobi, must have missed that thread.

It sounds like there hasn't been anything official either way...I'm betting they're going to hold off on post-NJO books until after EPIII.

And you've got a good point there, Ravager. If post-NJO books aren't done for a while, that'll give GMs wanting to keep their games 'correct' within the EU a much easier time.

Thanks guys.
