Post 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?

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 , but I consider everything up to fan fiction canon.

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

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

Who is everyones favorite author.

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

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?

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.

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.
