Suvudu has posted an interview with the new Senior Editor at LucasBooks, Jennifer Heddle. As the new Senior Editor, Jennifer will be overseeing all of the adult fiction Star Wars titles. The interview covers from how she first discovered Star Wars to some of her favorite Star Wars books. She even mentioned her thoughts on reboots.

With 2009’s Death Troopers, the EU branched out into the horror genre for the first time. Shadow Games, which will be out on November 27th, is set to be the first Star Wars thriller. What’s your favorite genre of fiction, and will you try to bring more of that genre to Star Wars?

Well, my favorite genre of fiction is probably fantasy, and integrating that into Star Wars would be interesting. It’s not that difficult if you think about it, since a world in the GFFA without any tech could probably be construed as “fantasy.” And I’ve always thought of Star Wars, particularly Episodes IV through VI, as “space fantasy” more than anything else. 7 What are your thoughts on a partial or full “reboot” of the EU? Personally? I think that if DC and Marvel can do it, then so can we. And I like alternate history stories. But that’s something that ultimately is not my decision.
