Bantam Series: Canon?
 
Do you consider the Indiana Jones novels to be canon or just a loose extended universe.

Also what book would you pick to continue the series?

indifan101 07-04-2005 11:45 AM

:) Indiana Jones and the Dinasour Eggs.

OhioJones 07-05-2005 11:44 AM

I would pick Indiana Jones and the Secret of the Sphinx

:whip:

I consider just about everything canon, including the comics, video games, etc. but I know that not everyone does.
Some consider only the movies to be canon, and I have heard of a few people who only consider Raiders as canon and not the sequels.

I agree, I think of indy as very open ended, and meant for the charachter to have many different adventures. I dont really know what I'm trying to say here :p , but I consider everything up to fan fiction canon.

OhioJones 07-06-2005 05:50 PM

I guess I consider everything to be canon as well.

The guy does have and awful LOT of adventures though.

One thing I hate is the contradiction between The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles T.V show and the Indy books that were put out by Bantam books. In the T.V show Indy said he wantted to be an archaeologist in 1919 and in 1920 he was going to school to be one but in the books he graduates college in 1920 with a degree in linguistics :confused:

Lucasfilm needs to give me the job of keeping everything in line. They could pay me to be an official indy fanboy that sits in an office and watches the movies/shows/books looking for plot holes :p

That would be a kick ass job :whip: I would apply for it.

OhioJones 07-11-2005 02:31 PM

Who is everyones favorite author.

Mine would have to be Max Mcoy, Rob Mcgregor had his moments though.

indifan101 07-11-2005 02:47 PM

Michael Crichton, Arthur C. Clarke and Tom Clancy! :D I love to read Jules Verne also!

OhioJones 07-11-2005 11:00 PM

:rolleyes: :o Let me correct myself who is everyones favorite Indy author

Grimdiana Bones 07-11-2005 11:31 PM

I havent read any of max mccoys books yet, I'm looking forward to them though. Every review I've read seems to say he is the better author, and I enjoy rob mcgregor, so max must be dynomite.

Can anyone back this up?

OhioJones 07-11-2005 11:33 PM

I can! Mcgregor is boring half the time and hardly captures the character of Jones in most of his novels (Minus of course Genesis Deluge). You will love Mcoy IMHO.

Webley 07-11-2005 11:36 PM

I dig all the Indy books even the Martin Caidin ones :whip:You have to admitt Gale Parker is a cool Indy girl.

OhioJones 07-12-2005 12:06 PM

I was not a big fan of Caiden at all. I have both of them but never read Sky Pirates.

I have to agree. McCoy captured the spirit of Indy the best.

Be sure to read them in order. ;)

My last name is McCoy! Interesting?

OhioJones 07-12-2005 06:46 PM

Funny coiencidence? You didnt happen to write the best Indy novels around did you? ;)

indifan101 07-12-2005 06:54 PM

Hey I can dream, can't I? :D

OhioJones 07-12-2005 11:11 PM

Well I guess so.

Favorite Picks:

Secret of the Sphinx
Hollow Earth
Genesis Deluge

indifan101 07-13-2005 12:52 PM

Hollow Earth wasn't that bad in reality I liked it!
