What is it like to work in a universe like George Lucas created? The restrictions that it gives you set certain boundaries. Did you feel cornered in your imagination at times?

I ask this as i am attempting to write in the Star-trek world, its daunting to say the least.

Thanks

I was given considerable latitude while writing ROGUE PLANET. But then, I knew pretty much what my degrees of freedom would be! So I did not push too hard in certain directions. Even so, I was surprised by how much I was allowed to shape the SW history--mostly by collating facts derived from other sources, of course. Great fun. When I wrote my ST novel twenty-three years ago (wow, has it been that long?) I was also given similar latitude. Other writers have experienced greater or lesser degrees of freedom.
