    I'm definitely curious to see how Aftermath turns out, and I'm excited that they're creating content for the time period between original trilogy an ep. VII. Is anyone familiar with Chuck Wendig's other work? The name is familiar, but I don't think I've read anything he's written.

    I finished Heir to the Jedi. The second half was much better than the first, but I still wouldn't really recommend it.

    So, I'm considering getting back into reading Star Wars stuff. I was super into it in late elementary-middle school, so I've been out of the loop since... the late 90's. And, I know that means I'm just about as lost as can be. I've been poking around reading different blogs and such, and still am at a loss as to a good place to pick back up. Everyone recommends Thrawn, obviously, and as I have read it, I don't know if I want to go back to it, or start something new. Granted, it has been... 20 years, so I suppose it is kind of new at this point. ;) Anyone have any suggestions?

    I'm sorely regretting (yet again) selling off all of my books back in the day.

    If you're not sure you want to reread Thrawn, what about everything else by Timothy Zahn. :D I would especially recommend Allegiance and Choices of One.

    Ok, I've settled on rereading a handful of ones that I had read when I was younger, just to get back into the groove of things. I don't know how many I will stick with before branching out into new material, but I'm realizing that I did need a bit of a re-introduction back into the EU. Right now, I decided to tackle Truce at Bakura... and I'm remembering why I didn't put it into my frequent reread rotation. :| But, since it's immediately after RotJ, it seemed like a good place to jump back into things.

    I have all the ‘legend’ books. Started with the Jedi Academy trilogy, then got the Zahn trilogy, which is some of the best storytelling in the entire Star Wars franchise imho. I also love the X-wing/I Jedi series, and I also like the collections of short stories (Tales from Jabba’s Palace/MOs Eisley Cantina)

    So I've really liked Zahn's new Thrawn trilogy. If you watch the shows they have made his Thrawn features heavily in the Rebels series. I like that they had Zahn re-write him into the cannon timeline as well.
