3/19/24 LegendsCon II Annoucement!!

 

https://www.facebook.com/Legendsconofficial/videos/409506058341017

We at Legends Consortium LLC have created an event known as Legendscon to bring fans together in an environment where we can celebrate our love for the Expanded Universe.

After our first successful convention in Burbank, ca, in September of 2023, which included the appearances of Matthew Stover, Randy Stradley, Michael Stackpole, Barbara Hambly, Craig Miller, Abel G. Peña, Sean Stewart, Henry Gilroy, Michael Kogge, Joe Bongiorno, Jason Fry, Corinna Bechko, Mike Hansen, Mark Anthony Austin, Daniel Keys Moran, & Shea Standefer, we have decided to once more unite fans of the Expanded Universe by hosting Legendscon II. 

The Legends Consortium team consists of fans that host this unofficial, community-organized, Expanded Universe-themed charity event known as Legendscon as we are able. While Legendscon is not sponsored by or affiliated with Lucasfilm ltd., we communicate with Lucasfilm and have agreed to adhere to their guidelines for Lucasfilm fan events.

All profits made from Legendscon events are donated to charity in order to better the world with our love of the Expanded Universe. The charity proceeds from Legendscon II shall be donated to the Twin Suns foundation.

Join us at the University Of Texas at Arlington's College Park Center March 15th & 16th, 2025, for Legendscon II, an Expanded Universe event!

Tickets available March 26th, 2024

And for those wondering, in case you missed it or want another set, Supernatural Encounters will be there!

 

3/15/24 Amazon's Supernatural Encounters

So, the three volume set of Supernatural Encounters has been taken down (nothing nefarious) and will return in a new three-volume set at LegendsCon II. Stay tuned tomorrow for an announcement as to the time and place of that convention.

 

3/6/24 Site Construction

The site is going to look weird for now, as I fix the mysterious disappearance of the right border and do some long-needed cleanup of the folders--which is probably what caused the former since I had started that process a few days ago and probably deleted an important file or something. Anyway, I appreciate your patience during this time.

 

2/21/24 Hunters of the EU--Here is a Job!
Hey, you hunters of rare EU lore. Here's a challenge for you, potential new EU (or Infinities) content from back in the day--ten issues from Indonesia! We could really use scans to share with the community, so if you can find them, scan and share them!

Upon Upon a Galaxy!

Thanks to my friend, Luke Van Horn, I've also added the two-page comic lead-up to A New Hope that debuted in the magazine TV Times Magazine in October, 1982, illustrated by Martin Asbury. You can find that here!


2/19/24 Supernatural Art!

I'm happy to post this new piece of Supernatural Encounters art by the Canadian artist Natalie Asplund. Check out more of her work here: https://linktr.ee/NadlyJ. I've been meaning to add a new section for fan art and stories relating to Supernatural Encounters, of which I have a few more, so here we begin with more to come in the months ahead! I've been focused on editing the first of the translated Hungarian Han Solo books, but don't hesitate to send me a reminder.

 

2/16/24 Site News

Rescued Tokyopop's Manga Silver: Perfect Evil from Infinities and placed it in the main timeline. It shows another time in which Vader got confirmation that Luke was in fact his son.

 

2/14/24 EU Announcement: 10 Year Anniversary of the Discontinuation--Group Project!

As many of you know, I don't generally cover EU news here. There are plenty of Youtubers and other places that do that kind of thing. Our focus here is on archiving lost (and potentially lost) EU stories and EU chronology. But this is one I absolutely champion as a positive response to the anniversary of the announcement ending the EU. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mnUBGRke34

 

New Lost Tale!

John Morton, the actor who played Dak Ralter in The Empire Strikes Back has released to me the complete version of "Escape from Kalist," initially published in a truncated version in Galaxy Guide 3: The Empire Strikes Back (West End Games, 1989). It was supposed to be featured in the Star Wars Insider 40th anniversary issue. You can find that on the right-hand side of the page or here.

 

Mystery Solved!

So, the long-held mystery of who Alex Wheeler (the pen name of the Scholastic six book Star Wars: Rebel Force series) really is--and whether it was actually Jude Watson--has finally been solved thanks to the sleuthing of u/Cowboyrex1234 and u/xilban as brought to our attention by Nick Schuessler: https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWarsEU/comments/1aqt0wc/

an_eu_mystery_or_the_curious_case_of_alex_wheeler/

 

The short answer is: It was Robin Wasserman, the author of numerous young adult novels and shorts.

 

2/4/24 Supernatural Excitement!

Checking out Eddie with a poster of his character, Adder Hive the Jinn, from Supernatural Encounters! This thing rocks!

 

With the debut of Supernatural Encounters on Amazon.com has come an array of videos and discussions. As always, I'll add them to the SE page and Discord server as they drop.

 

Some samples include:

As always, thank you to everyone involved in these, to the editors, to the fans! Love you all!

 

2/3/24 Supernatural Encounters Amazon.com UPDATE!

Amazon has now available to order the three trade-paperback volumes that make up Supernatural Encounters: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0CTGVFF19?binding=paperback&qid=1706980906&sr=1-1&ref=dbs_dp_rwt_sb_pc_tpbk.

This is, of course, being made available at cost and will remain up for an unknown period of time. If you feel so inclined, please let the larger EU community know about it (on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Instagram, or other servers).

There will be a Lulu.com release in the Spring, which will be a hardcover set of these three volumes, with the illustrations in Vol 3 being in color. My hope is to make these available for easy purchase on that site, but I'll know more about that as we get closer to the Spring.

As to the single-volume hardcover and softcover editions, I hope to have some available at LegendsCon in 2025 (stay tuned for the dates and venue which should drop any day). These will have the *new* LegendsCon logos on them and will feature 2nd edition text to distinguish them from the 2023 editions.

Stay in the Light!

2/1/24 Site Update

Added TOR: Legacy of the Sith to 3626 BBY. Also, thanks to Quinlan Vos (Brennan), the rare Battle for Theed three-page comic by Mike Stackpole is now available for download here! Check out Brennan's video about it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sO_bhy6HeXw

 

1/19/24 Mythos Madness

Special thanks again to Quinlan Vos (Brennan) for providing us with the rare Star Wars Mythos from Sideshow Collectibles, which he talks about here. Check it out and download Star Wars Mythos here.

 

Also, the short story, "Jodo Kast & Dengar: Preying for Time," which has been floating around the internet for awhile now, has been added to the Star Wars: Adventure Journal #18.

 

1/18/24 T4-329, do you copy?

Special thanks to Quinlan Vos (Brennan) for supplying us with the rare and hard-to-find TK-329 Tweets that were used as part of the promotional campaign for Dark Troopers! You can find them here and on the side-bar on the right.

 

1/11/24 A Celebratory Time

Its with considerable humility and gratitude that Supernatural Encounters continues to receive love online. The fans are nothing short of amazing, creative, fun people, and they deserve the best. Join our Discord if you haven't already (message me here) and/or check out the great and growing content on SE's media page. As regards the second edition, it will be a three-volume, trade paperback set (illustrations will be collected in the third volume along with Cult Encounters, the appendices, and endnotes). Stay tuned here (or on the aforementioned Discord server) for news and updates.

 

1/8/24 Happy New Year!

We're off to a bang this year with Supernatural Encounters related content. Check out the SE page for the complete list, but some of the recent ones include Alex's (Sombraptor) five-part interview with me,

 

Listed by year is the archived news for that year, as well as the website updates that had originally been on a separate page.  I've decided to combine them by date for those long-time fans of this site, as well as any that are curious to see my chronological thoughts and editorials over the years. Occasionally, you'll see non-Star Wars material from my other timeline sites included, as this was before I had the lightbulb moment when I realized that each universe should have its own "latest news" and "updates" page. Please note too that these pages are being kept for nostalgia and research purposes. None of the internal links, of which there are many, will actually work, as they were created at the time the Star Wars Expanded Universe Timeline was listed under the umbrella site Timelineuniverse.net, which is no longer the case.
