Kenobi author John Jackson Miller did a live Facebook chat on Del Rey’s Star Wars Books Facebook Page. You can check out the full chat here, or our edited recap below. This was probably one of the best live chats I’ve seen yet. In fact John answered so many questions that he was banned from Facebook.

John Jackson Miller: Glad to be here! Happy to talk about things Kenobi and Star Wars in general. (Hoping to keep things relatively spoiler free — for more spoiler-y kinds of questions, I suggest posting to this thread on my website, where I’ll be addressing the more detailed questions later on: http://blog.farawaypress.com/…)

Hi John, I’m a big fan of your work. Are we ever going to see Zayne Carrick again?

JJM: It’s a big galaxy, and he’s still around, so anything’s possible. It was many years between X-Wing novels and another one happened. So we’ll see!
