Lostworlds are any Star Wars Expanded Universe material that either was in some stage of planning or development, was at some point on a publishers schedule, would have been published but got cancelled, or no longer exists. This includes (but is not limited to) lost, never-finished, or cancelled novels, comics, games and RPG materials. If something was published officially, but no official copies are in existence any longer, they also qualify as a Lostworld, as is the case with the formerly online comic Prelude to Rebellion #0.

Lostworlds are therefore not part of the official Star Wars continuity timelines. On occasion some of the intended ideas from Lostworlds do later get to see light of day in some form or another in other official sources, however they often times do not exactly resemble the original source. Lostworlds status does not apply to fan fiction, even if written by authors of other official Star Wars literature.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: 
I would like to thank Andrew Gordon, who was the previous keeper of the project, for doing so much of the research before I took over.  He also provided some of the summary speculation and helped with some timeline placements.

I would also like to thank Michael Potts, who started the whole idea on the Jedi Council Literature forum.  He also made contributions including help with some timeline placements. Lostworlds exists as an appendix to the popular Star Wars Time Tales created by Christopher McElroy and Michael Potts.

I would also like to thank Nathan Butler for his contributions and help with some timeline placements.  Much of the information on this page also appears as "historical curiosities" in his popular Star Wars Timeline Gold.

Also a warm thanks is due for the contributions of several other members of the Jedi Council forums including Mavrick889, Genghis12, Valiento, Ana Vitorrian, LanceJade, Mastadge, and KamSolusar.
