message 1: by Michael (new)

Michael C Sorrentino Why is Star Wars: Tarkin listed twice?


message 2: by Jules (new)

Jules Star Wars: Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir is a Dark Horse comic and not in the "new" EU.

Actually, because it is based on unproduced scripts from The Clone Wars Animated Series it is in the new canon.


message 4: by Josh (new)

Josh Why are people voting on books that haven't been released or even pre-released yet? How annoying!!! The Dark Side is with you, you feckless voters!


Michelle (In Libris Veritas) I'm so confused. How is Heir to the Jedi canon, when the first book (and I assume, the second) of the Empire and Rebellions trilogy is listed under "Legends"? Am I missing something or is this as silly as it is seems?

Heir to the Jedi is a new book that has yet to be released. It is set between Episode IV and V.

Oh I know that. I meant Razor's Edge and Honor Among Thieves, which are listed in the same trilogy as Heir to the Jedi. Razor's Edge is marked as one of the Legend titles. It's just odd that they would make one book of a trilogy canon but not the others.

I believe after Disney/Lucasfilm announced the new canon that Del Rey decided to make Heir to the Jedi not count as part of the trilogy as originally planned. Whatever plans Del Rey had went out the door after the announcement.

Ah okay, that makes sense! Thanks!

Ari People don't add more individual comics. Because in a year or so this list will be huge, let's stick to Collected Volumes like the Maul one. Until the first one comes out, let's leave these ones here.

Completely agreed.

because it's an unproduced clone wars script it counts.


message 13: by Michael (new)

Michael C Sorrentino Why is "The Starhawk Chronicles" listed here, as far as I can tell it has nothing to do with Star Wars.

deleted it. i don't know why would put it there.

They have said it is in both


message 16: by Ari (last edited Sep 03, 2015 01:44PM) (new)

Ari changed the title of the list slightly so there's a motive/purpose to vote for any book and not just a catalogue of canon material.


message 17: by Gary (new)

Gary Muldoon Son of Dathomir isn't canon.


message 18: by Tim (new)

Tim Gary wrote: "Son of Dathomir isn't canon."

Yes, it is.


message 19: by Ari (new)

Ari Tim wrote: "Gary wrote: "Son of Dathomir isn't canon."

Yes, it is."

Yup, it's a continuation of the Clone Wars arc.


message 20: by Revan (new)

Revan Votes in, good list!


message 21: by Sophia (new)

Sophia Michael wrote: "Why is Star Wars: Tarkin listed twice?"

Because it's just that good!


message 22: by Brandon (new)

Brandon Less Does anyone know of a list like this but ONLY novels.

I've just created one: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/9...


message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

The original and prequel trilogy novelizations are no longer canon.


message 25: by Q. (new)

Q. There are a bunch of Legends novels on this list.


message 26: by Tim (new)

Tim Yea I thought the Old Republic books are Legends? At least the books I just bought are...

Ari Tim wrote: "Yea I thought the Old Republic books are Legends? At least the books I just bought are..."

duly noted, i shall remove legends books but i suspect, someone is sabotaging the list...


message 28: by Ari (new)

Ari since anyone can add list, this list will get flooded but legends supporters, the only way is to created a closed list so that only one person can add books. sadly, this list is irrelevant now
