Interview request by ProfessorToftyEdit

Submitted on: 22:19, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
Purpose: Jason Fry is the author of such titles as The Clone Wars: Darth Maul: Shadow Conspiracy and the upcoming The Weapon of a Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure, as well as reference works like The Essential Guide to Warfare. Recently, he was written two titles in the Servants of the Empire series and has two more coming out this year to complete the series. This interview would focus mainly on the two titles in that series, but would be open for other questions as well. I messed up on the last interview, but this one would be open for anyone to submit questions before I send off the questions for the actual interview.


  • Fry's Servants of the Empire is a fascinating addition to the Star Wars universe. I'd love to learn more about it and it'd be great to learn more about some of Fry's other titles as well. Since his e-mail is publicly available on his website, I figure it's worth a shot. ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:19, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
    • I hesitate to say this when we haven't recorded an episode yet (first episode will be recorded on Wednesday) but I'd rather save bigger names like this for the WookieeCast. Not sure how well it'd go if we did an email interview and then, potentially soon after, asked him to be on the podcast. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:29, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
      • Oh, okay! I didn't think of that, and, well, I already submitted the request. I suppose, though, that if I get a response, I could just ask him if he would be willing to hold on it and do WookieCast instead. ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:38, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
        • According to Wookieepedia:Interviews, you're supposed to get approval before sending an interview request. That should have been done before you sent an email. It also says "Do not submit multiple interviews to a given VIP in a short period of time (think months)," which also put WookieeCast in a bind. But the cat's out of the bag now, and my intention certainly isn't to scuttle people taking the intiative. Please just let me or Floyd know what Jason says before you reply further. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:57, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
          • Oops. Well, I think it's okay. I've already sent him another message letting him know about Wookieecast and that it would be better to hold for now, so I don't think we have to worry about any conflict as far as multiple requests go. Besides, there's been so little action with this lately that I think a little slack could probably be allowed. ProfessorTofty (talk) 23:02, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
            • Brandon - I just heard back and he's quite alright with waiting -- he said he's happy to help us out with whatever we need. So no worries. ProfessorTofty (talk) 00:38, March 20, 2015 (UTC)

You are free to choose to omit or reject any question that is asked, for whatever reason.
