In all of the time that I was doing worldbuilding for The Horse Thieves I never gave much thought to the existence of actual horses.

description

My being put off by the animated Clone Wars series meant that I was an extreme latecomer to Star Wars: Rebels. The show had long ended by the time I started watching in 2020.

But as I watched the first season of The Mandalorian and began to dive into the Mandalore-specific episodes of Clone Wars, it became clear that Rebels would also have an important bearing on the overall narrative.

“Life is too short to read bad books.”
Patrick Scalisi

“You're miserable, edgy and tired. You're in the perfect mood for journalism.”
Warren Ellis

“I think that storytelling and creation are very close to what the center of what magic is about.
