Hi Greg,
I bought your Star Wars novel Rogue Planet years ago and read it three times. I recently read it again after watching the revenge of the sith. It makes great sense of the prequel world of Star Wars... i particularly loved the interaction between Anakin and Obiwan, kind of fueling what's to come. I hope that you can do more with them in the future. I think your writing along with Zahn's is the best in the field.

Yours sincerely

Adam O'B.

Thanks, Adam! I think Timothy Zahn is a ruling Jedi master in the Star Wars saga. It was fun to play in George (and Tim's) sandbox!

Adam, you would really like a certain two-in-one paperback I have....Greg's "Hardfought" on one side, turn it upside down and Timnothy Zahn's "Cascade Point" is on the other! Remember that release, Greg? TOR should have put out more of those.....

G'day Greg, I just wanted to know whether I need to read any other Star Wars books in order to read 'Rogue Planet'.
I'm astounded as to how many books have been written in this 'super' series and don't really want to read them (at)all. I've seen the movies (1,2,3-Yawn. 4,5,6-Wide awake) and hope that that's enough.
I suppose that if RP had been written by anyone else, then I wouldn't be asking this question, but you did a great job playing around in Asimov's sand pit that I'm eager to try it.
Regards
David Nelson

G'day, David! ROGUE PLANET makes light reference to events in later STAR WARS novels, otherwise, fits right in between episodes 1 and 2, and movie knowledge is all you'll require.

Hello everyone. While I haven't read many novels from the Star Wars universe, I must say Greg your's is easily my favourite. The way you wove the story and characters into the Star Wars movie universe (as mentioned above) was very satisfying. You captured the "flavour" of the universe to the point where it was like watching one of the movies- meaning I didn't want it to end! Thank-you.

I'm sure you're QUITE happy to write your own fiction (which I love too), but I gotta say it- feel free to write more Star Wars fiction Greg! ;p

Thanks, George! I'm a STAR WARS fan myself--and the chance to write about a teenage Darth Vader seemed too good to pass up. No more books are planned, however.
