Lucky Number 7

Now that was an awesome issue! Star Wars Adventure Journal, Vol. 1, No. 7 (WEG, August 1995) included short stories by Timothy Zahn (Mist Encounter, a Thrawn tale later re-printed in the novel Outbound Flight) and Michael A. Stackpole (Missed Chance, a preview of sorts for the X-Wing novels Stackpole was set to release in 1996...and the first ever appearance of Corran Horn!).

Also included was an interview with Stackpole about the Rogue Squadron work, a nice article by Pablo Hidalgo about R-series Astromech Droids, a couple of pieces of nice fiction by Laurie Burns and Charlene Newcomb, and a notable segment called "Into the Core Worlds" by Paul Sudlow. There's even an adventure co-written by Timothy Zahn & Peter Schweighofer, and, of course, a few words from Platt Okeefe. Very nice. Glancing ahead, we will see more of Zahn and Stackpole and the Rogues in later issues of SWAJ. I can't wait!
