The Traviss Irony
Now that Del Rey has acknowledged the film novelizations are "canon unless contradicted", to borrow a phrase from
See, the Talifan claimed that Traviss threw a hissy fit and quit because some of her work was not considered canon. That is not entirely or even mostly true, but it is the claim.
Well, now she is on the extremely short list of authors whose prior work is considered canon now, insofar as film novelizations.
Her name in lights like that has gotta bug the Talifan something fierce.
