Very Happy Classic!

I don't know why, but I've a funny feeling that Wedge will be in this.

Well that quote officially tells us that this occurs between Ep IV and V.

Leaving open the definite possibility of seeing Jaxxton. Who I'm really REALLY hoping shows up.

Or is that hopping...? Razz

Tentative release date is now apparently December 26th. Really, really looking forward to this book! 4 new characters are going to be in it as well.

This will probably be the first Star Wars book in a very long time I will not buy. I thought Allegiance was sub-par and Choices of One was just awful. The continuity problems alone Scoundrels will create is already giving me a headache. It is fitting that Lucas and Zahn are the ones that got us interested, cause their works are what's going to send so many of us away.

Funny somebody else agrees with me. Choices of One seemed to be received with such amazement and fanfare...and I just didn't like it. I love all of Zahn's books, even Allegiance. And of course I'm a Mara Jade fanatic. But I just couldn't get through Choices of One. Sad

I'm also a huge Mara fan, have been since '92. And her parts of Choices weren't the worst reading ever. But... Luke having his saber taken away by thugs after what we've seen him do in all the comic series (Marvel, Empire, Rebellion, etc...)? Leia designing the move that brought down the walkers in ESB? I call B.S.

I still say that book would have been much better without Luke, Leia and Han. There was little need for the Rebellion to be part of it.

It's been too long since I read it, but I recall liking it. I thought Zahn's writing style had really improved since the Thrawn days. Less wooden.
