From the Back Cover
Enter the lair of the galaxy's most notorious criminal in nineteen stories from todays masters of science fiction.
In the dusty heat of twin-sunned Tatooine lives the wealthiest gangster in a hundred worlds, master of a vast crime empire and keeper of a vicious, flesh-eating monster for entertainment (and disposal of his enemies). Bloated and sinister, Jabba the Hutt might have made a good joke - if he weren't so dangerous. A cast of soldiers, spies, assassins, scoundrels, bounty hunters, and pleasure seekers have come to his palace, and every visitor to Jabba's grand abode has a story. Some of them may even live to tell it...

I found this to be and it kept me coming back for me. It was great to find out about the minor characters such as The Gamorrean Guard and Bib Fortuna.
If you like Star Wars and are not familiar with the novels then start with this one.
Excellent back stories to all the bounty hunters we know, or at least have heard of, and it gives us a new and vaster insight into the world of Star Wars...bought it to get me through boring days and ended up reading it all the time!
Therefore I am is the story of assassin droid IG-88’s rise to sentience and his superior way of hunting. This was by far the most enjoyable story in this collection. I thought IG-88’s droid thought-processes and his robot diligence were engagingly descriptive. The scenes were suffused with action, and insightful perspectives on the Empire’s methods. Therefore I am is a must-read, and makes purchasing the collection ... bearable.
Payback is the story of Dengar, the imperially enhanced and emotionally stripped humanoid. He seeks revenge against Han Solo after a race went sour. I was intrigued by the character and his warped sense of morality, and I was pulled into the settings of the world he was first on, as well as his curious assassin methods. Despite this, his fear of Darth Vader didn’t mesh well for me, and several encounters with Boba Fett led me to conclude that he was anybody’s fool! The story drew me back in at times with his connection to a female alien.
Overall, if you were looking for unusual contrasts and hunting methods between the bounty hunters then I recommend you purchase this collection. However, if you’re looking for character depth and struggle then I would give this a miss.Read more ›
