Han Solo's extraordinary exploits continue in this awesome trilogy.

Han Solo at Stars' End

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 fianlly leads them to an airless speck of desolate asteroid- the Authority prison planet known as Stars' 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 of survival are so slim, they might as well risk it all...

Oh wow. I remember this - I read it so many times I think it almost fell apart on me. This was a _lot_ of fun, and I particularly loved Han Solo at Stars' End and Han Solo And The Lost Legacy.

Yeah, they were pulp, but Daley did a good job with them anyway and brought a host of mad beautiful ideas to the Star Wars setting as a result.

Worth it folks.

The best expanded universe stories. Better written than any other star wars novels.

Brian Daley was an indisputably talented author. Not only did he pen these three Han Solo books in this one volume, he also wrote the NPR scripts for all three Star Wars radio productions. Of these three books, Han Solo and the Lost Legacy was always my favorite. I used to love to read these books repeatedly when I was a kid. The most enjoyable aspects of these stories was getting a look at Han and Chewbacca's life as smugglers before "going straight" and joining the rebellion. The prose is stellar and the plots solid. Having all three in a single volume is also a treat.
