I am re-reading all the Star Wars EU and am now in the early post-ANH era.
K.W. Jeter's books are of interest to me because I am writing my own novel in sort of that style: a present story and a past one - each unfolding as you read along. What happened in the past influences what happens in the future - that sort of thing.
However, I am only reading the "Then" chapters at the moment, to get a handle on EU history.
A giant spider floating through space on a web it built to collect junk (Ku'Ar Mu'Bat) acts as an intermediary between bounty hunters and their employers for a fee, thus facilitating transactions that might be otherwise dangerous for both parties to personally meet.
Behind the scenes, Prince Xizor has contracted for Boba Fett to join the Bounty Hunters' Guild - an organization he's shunned in the past 22 years that he's been hunting. (Fett's 32 years old now - he would have been the first cloned at the end of TPM, since no growth acceleration was used on him).
Xizor hopes that the break-up of the Guild will provide the Empire (and Black Sun) with cheaper bounty hunters not acting in collusion with each other, and Boba Fett joining would be a natural catalyst to that.
Fett probably realizes he's just a pawn in the game, but he likes the idea of thinning the herd amongst the hunters - as for an operative with his reputation, it will only bring him a higher asking price.
All good so far.
But Jeter insists on having page after page of intricate dialogue drag on and on, with characters making speeches! I have written a somewhat lengthy novel myself, but I'm not going for word count. I keep things exciting by saying what I have to say and not dragging it out. It is painful to read Jeter's stuff because it goes on an on.
I've been re-reading the EU trying to decide what parts of the chronology I could set up in cool dioramas with my action figures (that would be different, too).
When I feel compelled to, I'll post either strongly recommending or discouraging someone else from reading something.
I want to strongly discourage you from reading The Bounty Hunters' War Trilogy:
The Mandalorian Armor
For those who hate the Expanded Universe, here are 3 reasons why.
As I've noted on many occasions, there is also much to love, but listen to the advice of your friends that have suffered through the crap and sorted out the jewels.
