Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Han Solo trusts no one, and does no favors. But when the best illegal ship rebuilder in the galaxy disappears, Han and Chewbacca agree to go after him — after all, the Millennium Falcon needs some very special repairs. Their search pits them against powerful and ruthless enemies out to destroy them, and finally leads them to an airless speck of desolate asteroid — the Authority prison planet known as Star's End.

Han Solo's Revenge

For a cool ten thousand credits, Han and Chewbacca will do just about anything — except transport slaves. For one thing, it means an instant death sentence. So when a high-paying cargo shipment turns out to be a consignment of slaves, Han and Chewie have to think fast. But Han forms a plan to turn the tables on the slavers and free the captives. Then, good deed accomplished, he scours the skies for the nasty joker who set him up — because revenge can be so sweet.

Han Solo and The Lost Legacy

There's a fabled treasure at stake and a price on Han's head. So he and Chewbacca head for a planet rumored to hide undreamed-of riches. But once they get there, Han's beloved spacecraft, the Millennium Falcon, is hijacked by a band of assassins and killer robots. Their chances for survival are so slim, they might as well risk it all....

Synopsis:

How did Princess Leia and the Rebels get the plans for the Death Star? Just what was so dangerous about Beggar's Canyon? What compelled Princess Leia, of the peaceful planet Alderaan, to join the Rebellion? How did Artoo-Detoo and See-Threepio evade Imperial stormtroopers while Luke Skywalker and Ben Kenobi were in the Mos Eisley cantina? What kept money-hungry Han Solo from double-crossing Luke and Ben? How did Leia withstand Darth Vader's hideous torture method? What were Grand Moff Tarkin's secret plans for the Death Star? In the original radio dramatization script, you'll find the answers to these questions and many others - as you discover new scenes and facts and relive the excitement of the original Star Wars adventure. But there's also another adventure: the story of the dramatization itself. A behind-the-scenes introduction by the script's author, Brian Daley, will take you into the recording studio with Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and others - where weeks of creative give-and-take and intense on-the-spot rewriting produced the Star Wars dramatization heard by thousands. This original script, with dialogue never heard on the air, is the missing chapter in the history of a tale that began a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

Synopsis:

Han Solo soars again--in this awesome trilogy of his extraordinary exploits. Ride with him as he rides to the rescue, narrowly escapes certain death, and foils evil in its ruthelss tracks!
