Overview

Written by some of today's leading science fiction writers, these tales sweep us into a world where the only laws are cunning, force, and power -- and only the bravest, craziest, and deadliest dare to tread. Here mercs and smugglers, gangsters and warriors fight toe to toe, side by side, and behind each other's backs in the backwaters of a universe ripped apart by war. . . .

On Zelos II a man and a woman are held prisoner in a dark cell, each fighting in their own way for survival at the hands of Imperial captors -- and a chance for escape that could cost one of them their life. On the tortured landscape of Ryloth, Fenig Nabon awaits a ship of women warriors to complete a dangerous deal: the smuggling of a troupe of dancers to the homeworld of the Hutts -- only to get more than she bargained for. And in a stunning new novella written especially for this collection by Hugo Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Timothy Zahn and Michael A. Stackpole, Senator Garm Bel Iblis, believed dead at the hands of an Imperial assassin, teams up with Hal Horn in a duel against the Empire's most dangerous agent. At stake are the plans for a terrifying new weapon called the Death Star -- and the fate of both the Empire and the New Republic.

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

    This actually wasn't that bad

    The stories were all pretty good. My favorite one was definitely 'No Disentegrations', which involved Boba Fett and the Empire. However the New Republic had nothing to do with that story.

    Great Stories

    All these stories were really well written, but my favorite was 'No Disintigrations, Please.' It tells how Boba Fett takes out an entire Imperial base in order to get his bounty. A really good book!

    Jade Solitaire is a great short story!

    Most of the other stories don't involve many of the main characters we've been known to see often, but my favorite part was Jade Solitaire, featuring Mara Jade. It was so good, I'll give this book a four just for that.

    Zahn and Stackpole save the day

    The opening two stories of this volume are all that need to be read. Zahn and Stackpole are great (even with a weaker story, Zahn shines). This volume of the Tales series is the weakest, but it does have its moments. Not many, but it does have them...
