Worth buying for Blaze of Glory alone, though the other stories are not bad either.
A proud continuation of the trend of things suggesting that they'll be focused on the Empire not actually being about the Empire.
The Star Wars Adventure Journal Lite.
Features a story where Thrawn is not only a brilliant strategist but also a really cool bounty hunter, while Darth Vader is shown to be nothing more than a drooling idiot compared to him
In other words:
That was actually pretty much the final chapter of the book
Thrawn cosplays as Bobba Fett.
Thrawn's the dude playing a dude disguised as another dude.
I know we said "Empire", but we just meant Tales from wherever hell we feel like.
Sorry, but Todd has indeed won.
The one reason to ignore the Genndy Clone Wars.
Ah, Dark Lord. I'll have to think about that one.
Didn't we do this one?
#$$%#, that's supposed to be Dark Lord.
Fixed. There was a random LoE in the middle of my Dark Lord Google results and I grabbed it without thinking.
I'm not a fan of Jedi remaining alive; good thing Vader's here to kill them all.
Vader gets to play antagonist to a new character in a book named for Vader, meanwhile the Empire decides not to let the Wookiees win.
Darth Vader and a legion of stormtroopers attack Kashyyyk in order to root out Jedi, but this time James Luceno plays Vader and there's no kid for him to take home.
Vader finds his mojo, but most of the time some random new Jedi Master finds his own mojo (and his mom) before Vader stabs him to death.
A book billed as a Darth Vader story but with actually not much Vader in it
A book in which our 'plucky' heros (who we just meet in this book) try to fight against the guy the book is named after. Goes as you would expect and is AMAZING!
The Third part in what should have been the Prequel Trilogy, with Labyrinth of Evil as ep 1 and Revenge of the Sith as Ep 2. Admit it you know it would rock.
Evil!Anakin transcends his self-pitying wangst and forges himself into an early days incarnation of the classic Darth Vader we know and love, though almost every writer to follow ignores this completely in favour of more self-pity and wangst.
A story about jerkass Jedi Masters who react to the near-annihilation of their entire Order by shrugging and mouthing off to their Padawans, numerous Star Destroyers almost but not quite named Executor, maybe a chapter or two about Darth Vader, and as many cameos from minor Episode III characters as was humanly possible for James Luceno to insert.
(side note, not part of entry: This book was Luceno's one strike-out in an otherwise stellar bibilography.)
Will Vader ever learn to leave his Anakin side behind and gain confidence in that painful, yet powerfully scary suit?
