I bid you dark greetings, followers of the First 181st Exar Kun Appeciation Extravaganza! Ever since the year began, we've seen Exar Kun evolve from an arrogant Jedi Student to a ghost in a stone building; we've seen him evolve from a ghost in a stone building to another person annoyed by Corran Horn. What we haven't seen, though, is the story he was actually made for. Not the background story, not "the true story authorities didn't want to tell you". Just the story of how the guy who overslept Episode 4 suddenly wakes up to find a bunch of people occupying his creepy old stone temple and eventually gets evicted by them. Other people losing their home in this trilogy of misery include the tenants of the Maw Installation, some people on planet Carida, and even a poor slave boy isn't allowed to remain in the spot where he grew up. Kevin J. Anderson's Jedi Academy Trilogy, which we obviously start discussing with Jedi Search, has waited five years for inclusion in our discussion schedule. It is indeed one of the better known works in the formative EU, second in its importance and fame only to the Thrawn trilogy; but it's also seen a lot more criticism. Most of which will pop up again in this discussion, I guess. Now, where do we start?
