Thanks for posting this. Nice to have it all in one place. The Thrawn Trilogy Sourcebook is one of my fave WEG books.

Sorry about the coughing fit.

Does anyone have any experience with the DarkStryder campaign or the Kathol sector? Seems pretty epic.

I own it, but it's a hell of a read. I've never done much more than skim through it. Looks cool, though.

Was there ever a hardcover for the Thrawn Trilogy book or was it softcover only?

AFAIK, it was softcover only. I never saw (or even heard of!) a hardcover copy.

I concur. The three individual novel sourcebooks were hardbacks, but the trilogy sourcebook was paperback only AFAIK.

This saves me from searching; thanks for that

It's a little more complicated than that. I have the three individual sourcebooks.

Heir to the Empire, First printing: July 1992 (softcover)
Dark Force Rising, First printing: April 1993 (softcover)
The Last Command (hardcover). I acquired that much later than the first two. As it's still shrink-wrapped I can't tell you the date of printing.

Wait, you have The Last Command Sourcebook in hardcover? I thought those didn't exist. What's the ISBN number?

EDIT: Huh, according to Wookieepedia, they actually were in hardcover. Who knew? I certainly didn't.

I never meant to imply that the three individual novel sourcebooks were hardback only, which is why I left out the word only. The three individual sourcebooks were available in hardback, and the trilogy was not AFAIK (thus "paperback only"). I used to have the three individual hardbacks, and I still do have the trilogy sourcebook softcover.

As I recall I acquired each hardback as soon as it was available. It goes against the standard book publishing model to have softcovers available then publish hardback editions, or softcovers simultaneously published with the hardbacks, so I am almost certain any individual novel paperback sourcebooks would have come out later, at least in America.

Whill's right: hardcovers generally come out before softcovers. I have the Thrawn trilogy sourcebook which is indeed a softcover, but while I remember seeing the individual novel sourcebooks, I remember seeing them as softcovers. I don't remember ever seeing hardcover versions, but then again, when these books came out, I was not as much an avid fan of Star Wars D6 as I am now, so I wouldn't have known about the hardcover versions even existing. (Gawds, I'm still kicking myself for not getting the Platt's Smuggling Guide when I had the chance!) As soon as I saw the picture of the Last Command hardcover at Wookieepedia earlier today, I knew that that they did indeed exist.

I can see how you intended that. It is certainly a tenable reading, though perhaps not the most likely reading in context. You said, "The three individual novel sourcebooks were hardbacks" a reasonable reading of this is that the word only was implied. As an example, compare the sentence "the Drabatan species were short and gray-green in color." Should we expect to see a pink or a tall Drabatan?

I cannot speak to that. These aren't novels where the overwhelming majority are published in hardback first and paperback later. Whether that model applies to game books, who can say? What the two softback copies list is a first printing date. Maybe that is the first printing date for any version of the sourcebooks. Maybe it is the first paperback printing date.

In any case I purchased them from a local game and hobby store in Michigan years before I bought the hardback copy. IIR I acquired the hardback in a WEG close out sale so who knows how long it sat in WEG's warehouse.
