Re: Best Star Wars & Terminator novels-Need Recommendations...*SPOILER
There are 2 Terminator trilogies that take place right after T2 leaves off you could try. The subplot of one is The John Connor Chronicles (No relation to the later series). This one is a little invovled, telling the story of three different timelines, but everything is clearly labeled so you should have no trouble following it. I read it in Febuary 2006 and loved it.
The second is three different titles:
These also tell the story from the point where T2 leaves off, but I haven't read them yet, so that's all I know about them.
These are, in my opinion, the best Terminator novels produced (I'm very sorry Greg - I haven't read your novel yet but I'm certain it'll be great too).
