^Why does it have to be the "last" time you enjoy them? I mean, it's all equally unreal whether it's consistent with the movies or not, so why should consistency matter to whether you find it enjoyable to read the story? I mean, did people stop watching or reading 2001: A Space Odyssey after the real year 2001 arrived and contradicted the events of the movie/book? Did libraries throw out all their copies of 1984 once 1984 arrived? Is War of the Worlds impossible to enjoy now that we know there's no civilization on Mars? And those are things that are contradicted by reality. Who cares if one work of fiction is contradicted by another work of fiction? If it was a good story before, it'll still be a good story.
oh, don't get me wrong, Chris. I will still always enjoy them. I guess it has more to do with how its been beaten into fans heads that these post-Jedi books were meant to be THE official post-jedi cannon. For instance, even though Federation by Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens no longer meshes with what's on tv/film, I still immensely enjoy the book. I guess i'll just see these post-jedi books in a different light, than how I used to personally view them. Also, I guess I've always had this personal chronology of star wars events wrapped up in my head for the past 20+ plus years.
