Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I guess that's the difference -- I never took those claims of Star Wars tie-in canonicity seriously. I mean, there were plenty of inconsistencies between the early novels and comics from the '70s and '80s and the later works under the "Expanded Universe" rubric, so the pretense that they could all be crammed together into a consistent whole always felt disingenuous to me. Even if I had continued to read SW tie-ins in that era (I lost interest about 2/3 of the way through the Thrawn trilogy), I wouldn't have given too much weight to their alleged canon status.
