Suvudu has posted an interview with Star Wars: The Essential Reader’s Companion author Pablo Hidalgo. The interview covers a lot of ground and includes some of the artwork.
Had you read all of these books and short stories already or was any of this material completely new to you?
PH: Definitely, just because I had been busy. There was even a lot of material that had come out since I started working here that I’d just never had a chance to read or really dive into. In some cases I was just reading summaries at the time and this was an opportunity to read them more fully. There was a degree of catch-up and this gave me the excuse to read those. For whatever reason, I’d never read the Last of the Jedi series when they came out, and now I had the chance. I really enjoyed them. I think Jude Watson did an amazing job. When you look at how many books she’s written and the particular era of the EU she had carved out, it was fun to get that closure and finish her particular story.
