Suvudu has an interview with Millennium Falcon Owner’s Workshop Manual author Ryder Windham today. The interview covers Windham’s work with both novels and reference books, the differences between the two, and of course the Millennium Falcon.

What did your collaboration with Haynes involve? How did they assist you in writing the book?

I worked very closely with Haynes editor Derek Smith, and also the artists Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas. I wrote a rough outline with proposed topics for each spread, and then Chris and Chris added more stuff, and then we shuffled things around until we filled 125 pages of material, including the inside back cover. All involved can correct me or beat me up if I’m wrong, but I think it was my idea to present other ships in the YT-series to help illustrate the evolution of the YT-1300. If I had a question about some part of the Falcon and I couldn’t find information in a reference book, Chris and Chris either sent me the info or gave me their own suggestions for how I might write certain bits. The project was very collaborative.
