STAR WARS LITERATURE TIMELINE by MIKE BEIDLER
with updates by George 'Jake' Tringali


INTRODUCTION 

"What is 'canon' in the Star Wars universe?" 
"Is this novel 'official?'" 
"Did the events in this comic series actually take place?" 

    These are tough questions.  Although the canonicity question has been 
debated ever since Marvel began to create Star Wars comics beyond the scope 
of the first movie, and Alan Dean Foster's Splinter of the Mind's Eye was 
first published, it was Timothy Zahn's Heir to the Empire that made fans 
ask the question more frequently and earnestly than ever before.  In 1991, 
Lucasfilm, Ltd. commissioned Dark Horse Comics and about a dozen popular 
science fiction novelists to continue the Star Wars saga beyond the events 
told in the third motion picture Star Wars: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.  
And in a minor coup d'etat, Lucasfilm allowed Dark Horse Comics to add to 
the Star Wars mythos with adventures taking place four thousand years 
before the first movie Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope.  With this 
proliferation of Star Wars literature and the increasingly watchful eye 
of thousands of true and loyal fans the canon question has become foremost 
in many of our minds. 

    Of course, some of you are wondering, "What the heck is canon?"  
Referencing The American Heritage Dictionary, Second College Edition, and 
eliminating any definitions that have religious connotations, canon means: 

"3. A basis for judgment; standard; criterion."
"7. An authoritative list, as of the works of an author." 

    Therefore, in our particular case, George Lucas, the author and creator 
of the Star Wars saga, is the only individual who can define what books, 
comics, or video games are authoritative when discussing the Star Wars 
universe and its characters, places, and events.  According to the premiere 
issue of the Star Wars Insider, the only works "canonized" have been the 
movies, their novelizations, and their radio drama adaptations.  So what 
about novels like Heir to the Empire and the Jedi Academy trilogy, and 
comic series such as Dark Empire?  West End Games, which produces exhaustive 
source material based on the movies and various novels, states in the Heir 
to the Empire Source book that "this and all other products that take place 
after the events depicted in Return of the Jedi are the author's vision of 
what may have happened.  The true fate of the heroes and villains of the 
Star Wars universe remains the exclusive province of George Lucas and 
Lucasfilm, Ltd."  Kevin J. Anderson, author of the Jedi Academy trilogy, 
states in the introduction to the Dark Empire trade paperback that "when you 
read Dark Empire, or any of the other novels, remember that although 
Lucasfilm has approved them, they are our sequels, not George Lucas's.  If 
Lucasfilm ever makes films that take place after Return of the Jedi, they 
will be George Lucas's own creations, probably with no connection to 
anything we have written."  So what does this mean?  Will George Lucas 
ignore all the events, characters, and premises that Timothy Zahn, Kevin J. 
Anderson, and Tom Veitch wrote about?  Will all the books and comics have 
been bought in vain?  Will a Star Wars "otherworld" suddenly exist when and 
if George Lucas makes episodes VII-IX?  Only time will tell.  In a related 
subject, many fans love to point out inconsistencies and changed premises 
that are (supposedly) inevitable when so many books and comics are being 
written in a relatively short period of time.  So do these inconsistencies, 
some major, some minor, affect the canonicity of a book or comic? That's 
another question in itself . . . . 

    Regardless, this is my attempt at putting all the Star Wars literature 
I could find into a (hopefully) clear timeline. And note that I have stated 
which literature is not considered Star Wars canon by the majority of fans. 
Although most fans would probably agree with my assessment of a particular 
work's non-canonicity, this determination, of course, is purely my own 
opinion. If you tend to disagree with me on a certain canonicity matter, 
have literature to add to the list, or have any corrections/modifications 
for a future version, e-mail me at < LkSkywlkr@aol.com > 

( NOTE: I'd appreciate it if you sent any corrections/updates to me too 
        at < tringg@rpi.edu >. )

Thanks and May The Force Be With You.
