Canon, in terms of a fictional universe, is any material that is considered to be genuine, or can be directly referenced as material produced by the original author or creator of a series. Basically, something that is "canon" means it is something which actually happened in that fictional universe. An example of something non-canon is a fan-fiction; a fan fiction about a particular story is not "canon", as the story in the fan fiction never actually happened in that fictional universe.

Word of the Titans is also directly canon, being a collection of the creators words relating to Erfworld.
