Oh, not overtly – Other than Walter Jon Williams having been a actual Star Wars author – but here’s two interesting reads that I urge you to compare and contrast: Williams on writer geeks and the TFN Lit forum’s ‘Why you and I shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near the canon’ thread.
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.
