    Re: What Are the names of Han Solo's Kids

    Well now that we've got the kids' names sorted, this topic has moved toward appreciation of the EU books. Always a good topic. I like to buy the hardcover of books I'm planning on keeping. I did by Shadows of the Empire in harback when it came out, and I bought the novelizations of both prequel movies in the hardcover editions as well. Those are the only Star Wars hardcovers I have. I have around 10 paperbacks of EU novels, of which I've read approximately 1/2. I did like the Thrawn Trilogy, but didn't like Kevin Anderson's Trilogy that came out shortly after. Courtship of Leia was alright, as was Splinter in the Mind's Eye. I didn't particularly care for the NJO book I read - the one where Chewie bites it at the end (the only reason I bought the book was to see how he kicked off). I had a hard time creating a good Yuuzhan Vong visual for myself (as I did with the Sssii Ruuk reading the courtship of Leia). My preference is for them to use established Lucasian alien groups, as my own creations don't mesh well with the established stuff. Not sure why.

    I would recommend to anyone that they read the novellizations of the movies. Those are my favorite books by far.

    Donald Rumsfeld briefed the President this morning. He told Bush that 3 Brazilian solders were killed in Iraq. all the color drained from Bush's face,visibly shaken, almost in tears. Finally, he composed himself and asked Rumsfeld, "Just exactly how many is a brazillion?

    Actually, that was truce at Bakura

    I have just about ALL the SW books, minus the Galaxy of Fear serious, half of the YJK books, the misc ep1 journals, and the third hardback of the Dark Forces books. Everything else I have and have bought a hardback of if possible (I have 29 SW hardbacks so far).

    and and yes, to whom the poster before me was (forgot the name when I hit Quote for this post). Chewie dies, but this is OLD news and I would think is no longer a spoiler. It was on news channels and was a really big to do. Trust me, he goes out with a bang!

    yeah it bites that one of the beloved characters dies, but it has tohappen sooner or later. This isnt Highlander.

    EU doesn't count. Chewie's alive and Boba Fett went out like a punk.
    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.

    Besides Shadows, those are the only ones I like.

    Tales From Jabba's Palace was actually kinda cool too.

    Re: What Are the names of Han Solo's Kids

    Not the EU arguement again.

    So what constitutes EU...in your opinion?

    The Radio Drama?
    Novels?
    The Holiday Special?
    The Ewoks Movie?
    The Droids Cartoons?
    The Ewoks Cartoons?
    Comics?
    The Clone Wars Cartoons?

    What about the novels of the movies themselves?
    May the force be with you.
