Short Stories

There are several pilot-related short stories which have been published in the RPG magazines, first in the Star Wars Adventure Journal, and then in the Star Wars Gamer. When the Gamer ceased to exist after 10 issues, the SW Insider started to publish the short stories (the first one appeared in #62)

Various stories from the Adventure Journal were published in the books "Star Wars: Tales from the Empire" and "Star Wars: Tales from the New Republic". A few of them have a connection to Rogue Squadron (listed in light blue). As I've never read the Adventure Journal, I don't know if there are any other pilot-related stories that have never been published in a book; if so, please let me know.
