I read 'Splinter of the Mind's Eye' (written in 1977) and to be honest, was less than impressed. So, for obvious reasons I was a bit dubious about these stories written at (roughly) the same time. But when I saw them collected together..., I figured (since I'm a collector) I'd give them a try. BOY WAS I EVER SHOCKED! I discovered that, although there are few links to the modern saga of Star Wars novels, it has by a long shot the best ever characterisation of that dashing rogue that every boy wanted to be when he was a kid, Han Solo. This trilogy doesn't have the scope or rich continuity of A.C Crispin's Han Solo Trilogy, but you really get a sense of these two smugglers being the best in the game. An action packed read.

I am a big Star Wars fan and have been since the tender age of 12, when I first saw the film, I have this trilogy in three separate paperbacks but I haven't read them in about 30 years. So when I saw the set as one purchase for the kindle I purchased and re-read them and was a little bit disappointed by the odd spelling errors, didn't anyone proof read them beforehand. Saying that though, the stories are not too taxing and an easy read.

Han (smuggler/rogue) & Chewbacca (walking carpet) on various exploits on the edge of the Empire, so no Star Destroyers, Tie fighters or Stormtroopers in any of these tales and just a passing mention of the Old Republic and Jedi's. Set in the Corporate Sector with their own security forces called Espos, no real defined villains or space battles to write home about.

Stars End is basically a prison break after Chewie is captured and Han is forced to rescue him with the aid of some forgetable characters, except for a droid called Bollux, how did they get away with naming him that,(did they reject Bal-5AC, Go-Nad or Test-E5). Revenge is Han & Chewie in trouble yet again, mixed up with slavers & Lost legacy is a hunt for a despots treasure on a world in the Tion Hegemony.

Worth reading if for no other reason than to hang out with a couple of iconic characters from a great story, but don't expect a classic. This is good but not brilliant.

As the title suggests, this is an omnibus of three novels that chart the adventures of Han Solo, Chewbacca and the Millennium Falcon sometime before the events of ‘Star Wars: A New Hope’. Although chronologically within the expanded universe of Star Wars they take place before ‘A New Hope’ they are in no way any type of prequels to it; at least not thematically. Their focus is rather to showcase the lifestyle of Han Solo before he finds new meaning with the rebellion.

Originally published in the late seventies between the cinematic releases of ‘A New Hope’ and ‘The Empire Strikes Back’, the author of these novels could only base the characters of Han and Chewbacca from what was seen in the original film. The Han Solo of these books is the out and out ‘rogue’ version we first meet in ‘A New Hope’ and the author has done a good job of capturing that. By the end of ‘A New Hope’ Han’s character has already started to develop. But of course such development cannot be included in these novels. There are some efforts at foreshadowing this by providing an insight into his conscience at times. It is little more than revealing a moral side that Solo tries to ignore, but is a nice touch.

Although set in the Star Wars universe there isn’t a great deal of content that would be reminiscent of it nowadays. However, some of it is set in the Tion Cluster and there are also mentions of Mindor and swoop bikes; all of which may well have their origins in these books. The Empire is mentioned but doesn’t really play a role. Instead the Falcon’s crew seem to have run-ins with a large corporate organisation known as the Authority that rules a sizable portion of the galaxy (a bit like the Trade Federation, Intergalactic Banking Clan, etc).

Brian Daley did a fantastic job on these novels. He wrote
perfectly for Han and Chewie even before they were fully
developed (the books were written in 1979 and 1980). An
important part of the novel is the characterization, at
which Daley is very talented. Han and Chewie speak and act
like they would in the movies. The Solo adventures are
action-packed and never slow down. A must read for Han Solo
fans. If you're looking for something in a Star Wars novel
besides seeing MORE remnants of the Empire pop up again and
again, you HAVE to read these books. In them, Han deals with
the Corporate Sector Authority, a group unrelated to the
Empire, but just as dangerous. Daley introduces new and
interesting characters that become as much a part of the book
as Han or Chewbacca. These books will definitely not disappoint
a true Star Wars fan. They're full of all the action and
excitement that epitomize Star Wars. I would give the books
a 10 except that there are a few somewhat goofy moments. In
"Han Solo's Revenge", Chewbacca escapes stampeding animals by
quickly making a glider out of a dead pterosaur. That seems a
bit ridiculous to me, but everything else is just perfect.
