Here's the relavent portion of the Journal--let me know which source it's referring to if you can.
(On UFOs) "I've seen a few of these myself, though not exactly. Reminds me of Roswell, New Mexico, 1947. And the "Viking" long ship in '39. And the Sky Pirate in '30."

WOW! Very interesting. Look's like it is refering to the German novel. I've never read it but there is a brief description of it over here.

"Spoilerish" I guess.So be warned.

Awesome! Three points then--two for relevancy, one for obscurity.

So, I guess this means the German novels are canon. Or at least some of them are. Huh.

Leeland Chee confirmed that they're canon at this link. http://forums.starwars.com/thread.js...61663&start=15

I find it interesting that he says they're less likely to be referenced because of the language barrier, yet here one is, brand spankin' new, too.

Thanks for posting that pics, G-Man. I really want to get this. I wonder who the chick in the photo, who's supposed to be Sophia? She looks different to what I was expecting Sophia to look like.

I just got this in the mail today from Amazon. Came faster then I though. I only just ordered Monday. Thank goodness I payed for regular shipping.

Anyway, I've only gotten a chance to page through it a little so far but it is really sweet. Even cooler in person.

It's got a really neat authentic look to it. Love how it poses as an actual journal (as you all know).

Can't wait to read it!

I think it's a must buy for Indy fans.

I noticed in the back page credits that Indy Magnoli was heavily involved in the creation of the journal, that's why it's so great. I love that the lifelong fans have had such an impact on Indy IV...

It's supposed to be at Borders on May 6th. I haven't seen it in a bookstore yet. I'm very excited for this particular tome!

FoA and the Macgregor novels are still canon (says the Lost Journal)

I went out to Barnes and Noble tonight, and found they'd put out the Lost Journal of Indiana Jones book a few days early. So I snapped it up. Intriguingly, there are almost zero references to non-filmed Indy stories: YIJ and the four films take up most of the book. Understandable, as many such sources are extremely dubious story-wise.

However, there are a few pages of the journal devoted to Fate of Atlantis and Indy's relationship with Sophia, plus brief references to the Seven Veils novel and Deirdre Campbell.

So apparently Fate of Atlantis (and Rob Macgregor's novels) are good enough for the Lost Journal writers to include mention of them with the filmed Indy, but nothing else? Well, if we have FOA at least...

Many people regard Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis one of the best Indy tales told yet, in any medium, so it seems a wise move to include it unless it's absolutely contradicted by an actual Lucasfilm production (which FoA, being a LucasArts game, arguably almost is anyway). Presumably nothing in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull obviates it, so...

I haven't read the Rob MacGregor novels in a while, but I loved them all, and I've been looking forward to rereading them soon. Max McCoy's inclusion of a crystal skull element in his books is probably seen as too close to the story of the new movie without expressly supporting it, so I guess his books probably have to go, alas...

Actually, LFL seems to be taking an inclusionistic stance when it comes to Indy's Expanded Adventures. Indy notes the existance of other Crystal Skulls in the lost journal, and mentions that he's searched for many of them already.

Well, there's also a referrence to the Sky Pirates book, and I believe a referrence or two to some of McCoy's books.

So judging from both of your responses, I'm thinking it references a decent amount of Indy history.
