The rules specify we use Holocron continuity rankings, which author statements aren't part of.

Author quotes shine when there's two equally plausible ways to interpret something.

Depends on how much input the author had in creating the character as we know it.

Sometimes authors can be caught lying when put on the spot in an interview. For example Luceno established in Darth Plaugeis, the ritual of essence transfer was lost when Darth Gravid sabotaged the Sith archives, but in a questionnaire, when one asked how Sidious came about the knowledge, he said Darth Gean cut her master's attempts short of essence transfer, in complete contrast to what the novel established, hense the reason Plagueis doesn't possess it. There is a perfectly logical in-universe explanation for Sidious rediscovering the secret; Dooku in the Republic Comics, through Vos rediscovered Darth Andedu's Holocron and Sidious could have easily acquired it along with all of Dooku's other assets after his demise.

Sidious acquired the ability from Ashka Boda, not Andeddu

Interesting, thanks for pointing that out.
