    Del Rey released my Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith e-books for free -- more than a million downloads all told -- yet despite everyone already having the stories, a print edition was constantly requested. That book is now on its 13th printing. (With some extra content by me, as suggested above: my maps and an additional story.)

    It's not always possible to make every format available, but giving readers more options generally nets out positive.

    I think we're ignoring the elephant in the room (who is given to wearing a sweater over his uniform):

    If you want an April novel, just re-read Final Frontier or Best Destiny. Both feature Captain Robert T. April very prominently.

    To coin a phrase, "Sorry about that."

    Yes. I knew there was another Captain April novel I was missing. And there's probably at least one more.

    Just joking. And, yes, I briefly read the thread title as referring to Captain April. :)

    Never saw Zootopia, so no, I wasn't referencing that.

    You didn't have to. I was referencing it on my own.

    That was the first place I looked. I just looked again. Best Destiny and Captain to Captain were both buried in a scroll window (presumably to make more room for ads).

    Same scroll window also mentions A Flag Full of Stars; did April actually appear in that?

    Also in one of the paths in Michael J Dodge's Which Way book, "Voyage to Adventure".

    Wouldn't that imply he had passed away, then? Or was he just always missing the beginning of staff briefings? ;)
