    Following the events of Return of the Jedi, Bib Fortuna travels to a dark world where he meets with a talking mouse in a hooded robe who foretells of the end of time, when all that Bib knows will be as dust and time will literally be rewritten as darkness falls unto the worlds of man and mousekind alike.

    Edit: And I've just see that @krtmd already did this. I hate you :p

    I never did understand why Mickey donned dark robes. Riku was at least on a very obvious journey through the darkness, but Mickey just seemed to be acting obtuse. He didn't go evil, didn't get influenced by the darkness... he just wanted to dress in drag?

    From memory, I think they're meant to protect you in the realm of darkness or something.

    ****

    Anyway, since @krtmd had already done the Episode VII link, my second entry:

    Bib Fortuna travels to the word of Dentro where his encounter with a man with white eyes called Guff Mac sets in motion a forced chain of events that will bring about many dark falls in the decades ahead.

    Bib Fortuna (not not-Bib) is the last sane being in a galaxy with splitting timelines and continuities, and must defeat the Dark Falls, whose history-altering conspiracy reaches further than the Galactic Civil War and pushes beyond the fourth wall.

    @Havac wins the round amid hilariously tough competition, and I win the "demonstrate why Jello should never be given an ounce of power" contest. Moving on...

    Ruins of Dantooine.

    Snark for snark's sake will be disqualified. Make it funny, make it tough, but make it count.

    The only Star Wars Galaxies tie-in; for a very good reason.

    Dusque Mistflier goes on a MacGuffin hunt with a tall dark stranger who's totally not an Imperial agent, whilst enjoying exotic locales and zoological specimens animals and meeting everyone from the movies, but is betrayed by the man who is definitely not a bad guy and joins the Rebellion because Empire bad, rebels good.

    The Uncle Leo of sexism wanders around Galaxies locations for generic-plot reasons, meets Galaxies NPCs for no specific reason, observes Galaxies wildlife for surprisingly logical reasons, and eventually things happen and there's a twist that no one really cares about, because this uber-bland book manages to make even Inquisitors boring.

    I've not read Ruins of Dantooine and have often wondered what the problem is...

    But you have just given me reason to NEVER go near Ruins of Dantooine.

    The only Star Wars book that the entire fandom agrees should be avoided (even more than Jedi Trial); read, and see why Crystal Star really is a gift from a deity in comparison to this!

    A hapless spacer wanders around collecting plot points and meeting designated NPCs in a manner as much like an MMORPG newbie as can possibly be managed, while the villains succeed only in being astonishingly forgettable.

    Jedi trial wasn't THAT bad.....comparatively, anyway.

    A book starring Inquisitor Lame Wretch -- err I mean Loam Redge --.where the preview chapter describing Vader as a force of nature is as good as it gets, so don't waste your time with the rest of it.

    I think Waiting for Godot is a comic masterpiece... at least the way they play it in Dublin. But then, I also enjoyed Ruins of Dantooine. (Not on the same level, though...)


    My entry:

    A safari through the outskirts of the Galactic Civil War, featuring lots of scenic views, some exobotany and a healthy dose of awkward romance, plus cameos.

    I admit I had fun when I had to write an essay about it and just royally took the existential proverbial by saying Godot was a magic Irish fairy that lived in reeds and that Vladimir and Estragon standing around a blasted tree could be seen as a parallel of the Stewards of Gondor waiting for the White Tree to grow leaves once more. :p

    And I bet you Beckett would have loved it. He was quite a funny person apparently. At least when he wasn't stalking James Joyce's daughter in cattle wagons.

    Never read it, but it sounds like Tattooine Ghost with a different set of characters.

    Believe me, Tatooine Ghost is parsecs better!

    To be quite honest, some of you guys are doing a fantastic job in making me want to read this book.

    Congratulations/shame on you
