And Stackpole just wrote on his blog today ...

Quote:
What’s your next Star Wars™ novel? I loved writing in the Star Wars™ universe, and have many fond memories of working on the novels, short stories and comics. I am very happy that Aaron’s been given a new X-wing book to write. However, I’m not scheduled to do any new Star Wars™ work. Del Rey and Dark Horse Comics hold the publishing rights to the property, so it’s their decision as to who they ask to work for them. If they don’t have a place for me in their publishing program, they won’t invite me in. It’s a business decision. I understand that and respect it. They know where I am, and if their needs change, they know how to get in touch.


Come on. He wants this to happen. Based on the long lines to meet him and the packed panels he was on at Dragon*Con, the fans want this to happen.

Maybe Shelly Shapiro doesn't like Corran Horn. He got shafted pretty hard in FOTJ.

Even if that is true, one editor not liking a character shouldn't affect a series that way. Especially considering how popular Corran Horn is.

ALL the Jedi have gotten shafted in FotJ, Kenth Hamner the worst of all.

The petition has been picking up speed the last few days. Be sure to pass it along on other forums, on Facebook, and on Twitter if you really want to add signatures.

Mostly.

It is still a HUGE improvement over LotF in that regard.

Almost 60 signatures now. I think we had around 20 a few days ago. Can we hit 75 by the end of Monday? Spread the word about the petition everywhere you can!

As you lot may have seen, we posted a new column today featuring five reasons that Michael Stackpole should return to Star Wars. http://www.eucantina.net/archives/11095

The awesome part? Michael Stackpole just linked to the article on Twitter and Facebook! So it seems very likely that Mike has seen your petition, Skuldren, and that he would agree with the strong suggestion for his return! Very Happy

Mike just retweeted and Facebook'd this? Well Del Rey, there's really no question as to whether or not he wants to come back anymore.

I find it a bit humorous to see Stackpole post a link to an article called "The Return of Stackpole".

I wonder how many signatures we would really need to impress Del Rey.
