    I'm not sure that Wraith Squadron was that forgotten. One of the last old EU novels before the Disney sale/canon overhaul was a Wraith Squadron novel. (The author of the series also died a few years later).

    I also have a bit of a soft spot for "River of Chaos" a Louise Simonson comic series from the mid 90's dealing with a defecting Imperial pilot (By now a well-worn Star Wars trope it seems) and also featuring Leia as a side character.

    I think Adumar has more concentrated humor - Allstonís A-Game is well above most of his peers in both the series and the novel... but for some reason, Wes Janson, of all people, being the straight man to a just-recently-laid Wedge Antilles is the extra winner for me.

    By the by... would anyone else agree with me that Allstonís X-Wing books were better than Stackpoleís? Stack pole is still very good... but I like the characters better under Allstonís hands, and Isard, while a pretty good villain, feels totally outmatched by Zsinj... and the entire culture of Cartaan on Adumar.
