    Only on the third Saturday following the vernal equinox.

    Have there been any crazed madmen or alien species trying to rule the galaxy?


    Not counting yourself?

    Any superweapons created to aid in ruling the galaxy?


    Only the Party AT-AT and the TIE Fighter of Love.

    Have any bounty hunters or gangsters been un-killed or re-introduced?


    Didn't Vader show up 5 years post-ROTJ at a Wal-Mart in Tennesseeooine?

    Have there been any continuity errors or contradictory stories?
    No, because all those were cleared up in Crisis on Infinite Earths.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    The other thing to remember is that this all takes place over a period of 30 years, so Han is pushing sixty, and Luke and Leia are in their late forties. It lends an element to the epic quality of the written stories.

    People tend to picture these characters like they were in the novels. I try to picture them like they look now (in interviews and such).

    Amy, yet another good one is "Splinter of the Mind's Eye" by Alan Dean Foster

    It was the first book ever written in the so called "expanded universe" in 1978.

    It's a great story and they also have the comic series for it.

    Whichever you choose, I'm sure you'll enjoy! All the books mentioned are great!

    That list is missing the Galaxy of Fear books. How could they not include them? I mean, one story involved cannibals and Boba Fett on Dagobah! Dude!

    If you really want a quick run down...buy the "essential" guides to charachters, vehicles, weapons, etc...that will give you a quick run down. There one that deals with time lines and events...but I can't recall the title of the it...essential guide to blah, blah, blah. The Stars Wars universe??? or something like that...just surf amazon.

    Or you could just resort to a slightly old, slightly out dated star wars bible. The Star Wars encyclopedia has tons of info, brief, but it will help answer some questions and its a good reference or starting point.

    Actually the list was missing all the young adult novels (i.e. Jedi Apprentice/Quest, Young/Junior Jedi Knights, Glove of D.Vader, etc.). It was my goof about the GOF books. Time for a BSLOS...

    "Someone left the cake out in the rain...
    I don't think that I can take it
    'cause it took so long to bake it
    and I'll never have that recipe again
    Oooh, nooo! oh oh no no!!!"


    Here's the rest of the Galaxy of Fear books:
    #1 Eaten Alive
    #2 City of the Dead
    #3 Planet Plague
    #4 The Nightmare Machine
    #5 Ghost of the Jedi
    #6 Army of Terror
    #7 The Brain Spiders
    #8 The Swarm
    #9 Spore
    #10 The Doomsday Ship
    #11 Clones
    #12 The Hunger

    I miss any other novels (not just resource/information ones)?

    Well thats one hell of a list . Thanks I looked for Tatooine Ghost today when I was at work, and we have ZERO SW books. I'll try another Wal-Mart tomarrow after work.

    Now the list is excellent in my eyes. You can never leave off the Galaxy of Fear. Featuring cameos by all of our favorite SW characters, and some had those holographic covers!

    I'm sorry, I just liked those books more than I thought I would when I read them.
