Over on Del Rey's Suvudu sci-fi blog, I interviewed new LucasBooks Senior Editor Jennifer Heddle about her job and her interest in the Star Wars franchise. If you want to learn more about the new "top dog" of Star Wars fiction over at Lucas Licensing, this interview is definitely worth checking out. Here's one of the questions I asked her, as well as her response:
What event in the Expanded Universe had the biggest impact on you as a reader?
Again, this is a tough one to answer. Maybe Chewbacca dying, since I had essentially already stopped reading the books at that point and then when I heard about Chewie’s death I thought, “Well, that’s it for me then.” Of course I now have to eat my words as there have been some great stories told since then!
