I had no idea when SF Signal asked me to participate in their latest Mind Meld on tie-ins that they’d get so many actual writers who had written Star Wars (Sean Williams, William C. Dietz, Kevin J. Anderson, Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Walter Jon Williams.) Plus many other names familiar to genre readers and the blogosphere. And me. It’s a little unsettling. Really cool, but unsettling.
SF Signal points to a blog entry by Lou Anders about his essay for the book Star Wars on Trial. The book includes contributions from Matt Stover, Karen Traviss, Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Keith R. A. DeCandido for the defense, and the site even has a forum that I expect to show up on Fandom Wank the minute our nuttier fandomates discover it.
