GW fans...rejoice! Apparently, GW's head scriptwriter Katsuyuki Sumisawa's GW novel will be serialized in the magazine Gundam Ace.
I'll say, the story is certainly interesting and while I didn't like the story would shift away from the pilots a bit, I still think this could be a good novel. As for debates about the novel's "canon-ness", considering it's being written someone who had about as much creative input on GW as anyone, I'd say it's canon.
