A long long time ago in a galaxy far far away I read a couple of books about Obi-Wan Kenobi when he was still training as a padawan(before meeting what's his face who took him under apprenticeship.) Then I realized the books weren't written by George Lucas(hell not even the stories in any of the books were..) and so I decided not to read them because I didn't feel they were legitimate enough..

Anyone know if Lucas actually approves each book before it gets published or does he just let the authors do whatever?

Well i know he wrote the first 6 episodes, and a lil more than that.

But this is actually a good question. I think what ends up happening is they strike a deal where random authors can go on with their creative ways using the name as long as Lucas Arts gets shit loads of the money. I haven't read any of the books but i've definitely seen that they have books so way far into the future of the "star wars" franchise that you wonder what the hell is even the point?

Maybe one would have to read the books to figure it out....

Lucas has said he doesnt like the Books that occur after ROTJ.But the Thrawn Trilogy is amazing and the best books IMO.But lucas does observe some of the writing to ensure that it is accurate but he doesnt help that much with the plot

Out of all the books after and before the 6 episodes, I've only witnessed one contradiction; I forget which book exactly, either Shadows of the Empire (takes place between episodes 5 and 6) or one of the Thrawn books. It said something about Vader's hand being cut off by the Emperor for his failure to protect the Death Star, when of course his hand was cut off by Count Dooku.

Other than that, the books are pretty legit. If you wanna find out what books are canon and what aren't, go to wookiepedia. It's the Star Wars Wikipedia.

I've read so far;

Darth Maul; Shadow Hunter
Dark Lord; Rise of Darth Vader
Shadows of the Empire
Truce at Bakura
Thrawn Trilogy

Read some of the comics from before the 6 episodes, the ones before even KOTOR, with Naga Sadow and Exar Kun in them. I also have the first 3 books of the New Jedi Order series, but I haven't gotten to reading them yet.

I bought that some time ago but have since misplaced it, and never even got a chance to begin reading it. I'm a little interested now in picking up Shadows of the Empire.
