Agreed. I wouldn't mind seeing Legacy "prequel" books by Ordover. I've always been interested in the backstory of Legacy.

I wouldn't be surprised if they did tie in novels, if they did more comics in the era. We have gotten a Knights Errant, and now a Dawn of the Jedi novel, so they appear to be doing comic/novel tie ins as a regular(ish?) thing now.
The tie-ins to the Legacy era have already started in the novels. Check out Paul S. Kemp's Jaden Korr duology and both Legacy of the Force and Fate of the Jedi series and you'll see some clear, and not so clear ties to the Legacy comics. I can only imagine that as the novels progress that we'll get even more references.

I think I read on Wookiepedia that one of the Legacy of the Force books had a someone visiting the One Sith from Legacy.

Re: post Fate of the Jedi trilogy, OT era series announced

Not sure if this has been brought up already but at Celebration VI Del Ray also announced that the next Essential Guide to Characters would be out next summer. Dan Wallace is the author , and all 150 images of art are being done by "Star Wars: Dark Times" artist Doug Wheatley (who I'm not familiar with). This is actually exciting news. It's been quite awhile since the last edition...I think the last release coincided with "The Attack of the Clones" release, so this is gonna be a big update.

I don't really have any interest in those Essential Guide books anymore, they become outdated as soon as a new novel comes out. Plus they're kind of redundant in the wiki era.

True...I've always been a sucker for them though, and the art work is normally fantastic.

Yep, Alema Rar, a fallen and slightly crazy Jedi, visited the One Sith so the authors could specify their relation to what Lumiya was up to.

A certain One Sith with heterochromia (well, sort of) also made an appear in the final Fate of the Jedi novel. Also Jacen specifically calls him the Dark Man he saw on the Throne of Balance, so his actions possibly stopped the One Sith from coming to Dominance within the next decade or so (based on Jacen seeing his daughter by the Dark Man's side) and delaying that conflict for a century.

Re: post Fate of the Jedi trilogy, OT era series announced

The Star Wars Books Facebook page posted this preview art banner for "Sword of the Jedi" from artist John Van Fleet. Pretty awesome if you ask me.

That is a neat image. I guess she's going after more of the Lost Sith then?

Hopefully they do more than just pay lip service to this Sword of the Jedi thing. It was introduced what 10 years ago? And not much has been done with it.

Re: post Fate of the Jedi trilogy, OT era series announced

I believe that it was introduced near the end of the New Jedi Order saga. Jaina kind of finally accepted the title during her training by Boba Fett prior to facing Jacen for the final time (I might be wrong, it's been a long time since I've read those books).

Luke bestowed the title upon her in Destiny's Way, published October 2002. So, yeah, it's been ten years since the title was introduced, and fuck all has been done to imbue it with any meaning beyond "Jaina is a badass." As if we even needed a special title to know that...
