. . . is it just me, or does anyone else think there's just one too many post-LotF novels at the moment???

I don't think so really. It depends what they will go to us in those novels. Personally I think they can make all the remaining 20 or so novels in the contract post-LoTF if they do couple of resurrections... Wink

If this one wouldn't have been about a minor character, I would have said there are too many. However there are no release dates, so they may be well placed apart.

I don't think there are too many, but if they get messy, it could get annoying/overwhelming. Like post-NJO is a huge era that needs to be filled. Even with LotF, there's so much that goes unexplained. I feel like there's this huge white expanse with a few black dots here and there representing what we've learned about this era. However, the black dots are scattered abroad and there aren't many lines connecting them. So should there be more books in this era? Yes. But it should be done in a way that connects the dots and fills in the blanks. And that's my 2 cents on the matter.

I don't know . . . it just seems like everytime I log on, there's another new post-LotF series or book. It just feels like they're trying to cram too much in.

I do think it seems like there are a lot of post LOTF books, but if they all focus on different characters and such, it shouldn't be too bad. Would I like to see more about the other eras? Sure, and there's still several books in the contract that need to find homes *cough,cough*KOTOR*cough,cough* Very Happy

Aside from the Sith Era and (of course) the Legacy Era, I think the other era's should be generally laid to rest.

I'm not so sure; you could still follow other characters through those eras, but you don't want it to become too cluttered as The Clone Wars are starting to look....

The more books, the better. I can read pretty fast and my appetite is like Waru. "The Great Waru needs more input!" Ha ha. The more books they start laying out, the better our chances of seeing our favorite minor characters getting some page time. Lowbaca's gotta fit in here somewhere...

Jaden Korr! That's awesome! I'm not sure why that has me so excited, but maybe it's because it's actually about something different. What with all the post-LotF stuff coming out, this is a breath of fresh air. And I like Jaden! But does anybody know what Jaden's canon self is? Or is there one yet? I haven't bothered to look. Maybe I should...

Jaden Korr is a male of unknown species from Coruscant according to Wookieepedia. Nothing beyond that.

He was supposedly in Fury, I don't remember though.

Hmm...so I wonder what he'll be specified as, then. Or if they can get away with even mentioning that? Confused

I hope Jaden Corr is not just another male jedi... somthing like the Zabrak female option from the game would be pretty cool.

Or a male Zabrak would be cool, too. Especially if they already have him listed as male. Because then we could get another Darth Maul, except a Jedi this time! He was the coolest Sith...too bad he had to go so early. Sad
