In the first volume, follow Han through a botched smuggling run, an illegal pickup, and a raid on the notorious Star's End Prison. In the second volume, Han is down on his luck looking for work. A friend brings him some information about a classified job. Han takes the job, desperate for cash- to find out he is transporting a shipment of slaves. Thinking fast, he and Chewie turn the tables on the slavers and free the slaves. Han Solo scours the skies for the nasty joker who set him up, because revenge can be so sweet. The third adventure, Han Solo and the Lost Legacy, takes Han to an interstellar college, where he meets an old friend who knows the location of a long-lost treasure. Once on the planet his friends have described, his precious ship, the Millennium Falcon, is hijacked. Their chances of survival are so slim, they might as well risk it all.

I bought these when they were first published 30 years ago. They were a fun read back then and they still are. Thanks for the e-book copy the scotch tape is falling off my paperback originals.

First of all, my appologies to all those who really liked those three novels, but I found them way boring, unlike the other SW books I read so far, and they are way many, none of these stories add anything to the whole Star Wars plot, is like watching a TV show full of stand alone episodes, the books have many earthy references which really throw you off, it is a galaxy far far away, remember? If you really want to know more about Han Solo, you better read The Han Solo Trilogy, those three books really tell you how he became to be the Han Solo we first saw on the original Star Wars movie.

Star Wars is so rich in detail that for some, to focus solely on the story of the Jedi miss an entire section of the Star Wars universe. That is, those who were caught in the middle of the struggle those trying to make a living, by any means they could employ. The Han Solo Adventures follow Han and Chewbacca through the Corporate Sector, and their trials and tribulations to make a living. In short, these three books are classic adventure storytelling, which the late Brian Daley has done to perfection. These books get better and better each time you read them, and have, for me, become stories as dear to me as the original movies (IV, V, and VI).

This is the trilogy that portrays what Han Solo was doing before the Rebellion. What the newer Star Wars fans don't realize is that Han Solo is 15 - 20 years older than Luke and Leia, and this is just part of his story prior to getting involved in the fight against the Empire. After the Grand Admiral Thrawn trilogy, the Star Wars novels copied the Star Trek formula with the "Oh my goodness, all is lost!" for the first 95% of the book/series and then "Oh, we just have to unplug the power!" to fix everything and the story is done. I'm glad I can go back and read this trilogy to remember that the Star Wars universe is more than just poorly written Jedi stories.
