Looks like the cancellation is now official. There had also been earlier an Hirac Delest post about an email from one of the editors that had also made the cancellation sound pretty certain, but now it's definite. ):

Just seeing how they handled illustrating an andalite would have been cool. We didn't even get to see Ax's head for book #8 :(

Oh, boy. I was ambivalent about the re-release but now I'm sad.

Yes. But I have ranted about that before - at length - and so I'll spare everyone the tl;dr.

Damn you, Scholastic. This could have done well. It could have.

Damn it, damn it, damn it.. I really wanted to support Applegrant by buying these books new, since I never bought them when they first came out. I mean, I have new copies of 1-6, but... that's not enough :(

Sigh.

That's true. :) I checked Amazon, and Everworld is actually not out of print like I thought it was, so I'm definitely buying those first of all.

Haha, yes, with mysterious inheritances from long-lost relatives ;)

Maybe it's because of genre and target market? Everworld is definitely YA and definitely fantasy. Maybe it had to do with print runs or something.

Yeah, that's stretching it, isn't it? Maybe Scholastic operates by the same time-bending rules as Qantas and Emirates. Or maybe it's the Ellimist.

Oh wait, maybe it's not in print? There are only eleven new copies available for Search for Senna on Amazon, and seventeen of Land of Loss. I'm not sure if new copies automatically mean a book's in print, though.

Yeah, someone asked a question about it on the AMA and KA jokingly said something like, "Yeah, you and the other six people who read that series."

Hey, for all we know the Ellimist is secretly Michael Grant (http://animorphs.livejournal.com/718993.html#comments). Who wants to sabotage his own book sales to avoid blowing his cover. IT'S A CONSPIRACYYYYY.

Yes it is very sad I was really hoping for a copy of the Andalite Chronicles.
