The Traviss Irony

Now that Del Rey has acknowledged the film novelizations are "canon unless contradicted", to borrow a phrase from EU Legends Completists, and that this includes the Karen Traviss novelization of the TCW film (though to my knowledge Lucas did not line-edit that one like he did the others), there is a big bit of irony that no one has picked up on.

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.
