    I read a fifty page free sample yesterday, and gorram it, I wanted MORE! (Which is exactly the point of the free sample, duh.)

    Apparently so. I didn't know until a couple days ago. Looking forward to it. He is the man after all. :D

    I'm thinking about starting on Yoda: Dark Rendezvous. I always have trouble getting into prequel books. No matter how hard they fight we already know itdoesn't matter. Vader still rises. :p

    READ IT! Yoda: Dark Rendezvous is so very very good. I love that one. You really get an insight into just how great of a character Yoda really was.

    I am a little excited about it. I read somewhere, maybe one of the character guides, that Yoda has a silly sense of humor. That would be fun to see. The wise old sage is a comedian too.

    We saw a little of that in the movie did we not? When he comments about his age to Luke?

    A little. But the guide said that he likes to play pranks too.

    Guess I'll find out if the author actually put anything like that in there. Either way, a book dedicated to Yoda should be good.


    Edit: I'm pretty sure the guide said that. I'll check to make sure. I'm curious now.

    Agreed. An answer to the name of his species might be interesting. Although I might also be disappointed that the mystery would then be over. [face_thinking]

    He does play pranks. And is completely ridiculous at times. You almost forget that he's the Jedi Master.

    No such luck, his species isn't revealed.

    Well, wookiepedia says that it's unknown. I think it's one of those things we'll never actually learn. I'm okay with that.

    I am too. But still, one does wonder on occasion... [face_thinking]

    This. A thousand times this. I just want to read books in the OT/GCW Era with non-force powered Rebs vs Imps on the rim somewhere. Did that stop after the Wraiths and "Tales of" books in the 90's? (Speaking of, what happened to the "Tales of" books. Some of those had great stories!)

    Kenobi is written by John Jackson Miller.

    I'd have read Yoda: Dark Rendezvous years ago if I could have got my hands on it!

    I have nearly all of the Tales books, and you're right - some of those stories were truly great. Tales from Jabba's Palace was the first Star Wars book I ever read, and my first introduction to Mara Jade, who I loved even then.

    I always thought they needed that. Like maybe a series where they show the major conflicts from the non big three perspective. I'd love to see a thrawn trilogy book from the perspective of imp solders and maybe switching between them and some garm bel ilbis(sp?) troops maybe a non main storyline noghri.

    Honestly, I really enjoyed the two Boba Fett stories in those books, back when Boba Fett was just a badass bounty hunter with a code instead of an incredibl'a !TruMandalorian!McAwesome secret clone.

    No Disentegrations, when Fett takes on an entire Imperial Garrison Base while pursuing the brother of its commander was fantastic, but "The Last One Standing: The Tale of Boba Fett" takes first prize as my favorite short story in Star Wars.

    If you haven't read it, read it: An aging Han Solo takes a little break from family and respectability and goes on one last smuggling run to a rimworld planet out of his past, but an old contact informs Boba Fett of his location...

    It's good. I mean really good. That Fett is canon for me. :cool:

    Was that in Tales of the Bounty Hunters? It sounds familiar. If it's the one I'm thinking of, it was good.


    I really liked the Tales books, but I had trouble getting into Tales from the Empire. Or was it Tales from the New Republic. [face_thinking]

    You'd think you'd be able to tell the difference! :p ;)
