The Lando Calrissian Adventures, being one of the set of older Star Wars novels, are often overlooked by both the die-hard, and the wanna-be Star Wars fan alike. Though the three novels don't include most of the tie-ins with the movies and other Star Wars books out there, Lando Calrissian seems to exist mostly in a world of his own, away from most of the other Star wars adventures. I suppose that L. Neil Smith really wanted to create your average science fiction story, without the need for Empires or Jedi. And boy, he did a great job! Instead of the Force, we meet a mysterious sorceror bent on revenge, and a mysterious race of ancient magic users. Instead of the Empire, Smith gives us police and con men out to swindle Lando at every turn. and yes, we can't overlook the casino scenes! Smith writes a casino (sabaac in the Star Wars universe) scene worthy of Ian Fleming himself. The book also contains some of best plot twists I've ever seen in a Star Wars book. And with that on your mind, go enjoy Lando's adventures, both as a Star Wars fan, and a science fiction fan in general.
