    For all those interested, here is a website pretty much dedicated to the Chronology of the SW books:
    zutroy.com
    Since I am still a Newbie to all things Star Wars, I don't know how accurate it is, but it is pretty impressive to see how many books have been dedicated to such an awsome story.

    It is just a story isn't it?

    Story? What are you talking about?

    If you start reading the books, start with Shadows of the Empire.

    OK, here we go. First of all, if you see AHH, it stands for A New Hope, or Episode 4 (the frist movie from 1977). This is the 'zero year' for the timeline. Stories are either so many years before of after ANH.

    1. Go here: http://www.theforce.net/timeline/ Once you click there, go to the left and you will see the entire Star Wars timeline divided into eras. click on any of them, and you will find an EXHAUSTIVE list of all written material for that era- including stuff from magazines, kiddie books, comic books, and regular novels. If you are new to Star Wars fiction, you can get lost here (I am no newbie, and I was beginning to get lost). However, what is cool is that there are full color scans of all the covers.

    Try Shadows of the Empire, or The Thrawn Trilogy First. Keep in mind that while this list is in chronological order, the books weren?t written that way. This is why sometimes you will see characters, places, and events from the ?past? referenced in whatever your are reading, and sometimes they are not referenced.

    Everything has to go through Lucasfilm Licensing, and they try to keep some continuity.

    I have read most of these, but not all. I haven?t
