Star Wars: Hand of Thrawn

This two volume set, Specter of the Past (1997)  Vision of the Future (1998), follows events over ten years after Return of the Jedi. Much more should have changed in the New Republic and the fledgling Imperial Empire. That said, reading about the same characters, planets, organizations, and goals becomes a real slog. There are some compelling events but again only a Star Wars fanatic would sit down to read the Thrawn trilogy preceding these works, really making a pentalogy. The first three books are worth a read, the latter two a Wikipedia entry. Like everything else in life though it needed more Lando.

Stars Wars: Scoundrels (2013)

I haven’t read too many Star Wars titles, maybe 2 or 3. They were enjoyable but missed some of the no-good pirate feel, opting to focus on Luke and his drama. So when Timothy Zahn released Scoundrels I had to jump. I mean look at that cover. Any Star Wars fiend will admit to its more than enticing imagery. Hilarious in parts, exciting to no end, and full of new ¬†characters: Scoundrels is pure Star Wars heist antics.
