Product Description

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...

If you liked 'Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina' then you'll love this title. Nineteen separate stories about bounty hunters, assassins, associates and servants plotting and scheming to come out on top in the ruthless criminal underworld of Jabba the Hutt. Each tale is told from the main characters point of view as they witness and contribute to the events leading up to Jabba's fatal encounter with the Rebel Alliance. The book is well edited with a great sense of continuity throughout as the different stories cross paths with each other (And continue previous plots from other Star Wars books). With stories about 'Boba Fett', 'Salacious Crumb', 'Bib Fortuna' and many more this book is essential for Star Wars fans and an intriguing read for non-fans. So go get it.

If your a fan Of Return of The Jedi, then this is the Star Wars novel for you. The tales in this novel flesh out the events in the film leading up to Jabba`s death. Each tale is told from a different character`s point of view and adds more layers to the story.

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.

Its a great book with five different stories detailing IG88, Denger, Bossk, 4LOM and Zuckuss and Boba Fett. All great stories and worth a read, I loved the one about IG88, although not sure if its canon or not, read it and you'll see what I mean.

Really entertaining,

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!

As Star Wars graphic novels go, 'The Sith War' is second only to 'Dark Empire'. This dramatic story takes place nearly 4000yrs before 'Star Wars: A New Hope' and in it the evil Sith have returned in the form of Sith Lord Exar Kun (from the 'Jedi Academy' novels) and fallen Jedi Ulic Qel-Droma (mentioned in 'Dark Empire' and star of the 'Tales of the Jedi'). This story contains twenty Dark Jedi, six full-scale battles and no less than four lightsaber battles. It's scale is pure Star Wars magic. Also, as the climax of the TOJ story arc, it has no irritating loose ends. Buy it or regret it.

In Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader hires several tough and grim alien bounty hunters to track down Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon. Tales of the Bounty Hunters are a collection of five stories that detail what each bounty hunter was like and their subsequent struggles to capture Han Solo. Because this is a collection of five stories, please don’t be misinformed by my overall two-star rating above. My favourite stories are the ones below, while the other three were either too cynical or had too much description for my taste.

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.

I have recently read quite a few of the Bantam Book Star Wars series and they are very addictive. The reason for that is that you always like to find out that much extra about characters from the Star Wars world. Jabba's Palace does exactly that, most of the people mentioned you may not know by name. It links into the Return of the Jedi film and tells you what happens prior to R2D2 and Seethreepio arriving at Jabba's Palace and concludes some time after Jabba's death. It is very interesting as it is a series of short stories telling about life in Jabba's Palace which used to be a Monastary. It gives lots of views of the events but from different view points. For example there are numerous plots to Kill Jabba and several of them came very close to succeeding. One of the stories I found most interesting was the one telling you about the Sarlaac and what it was like to be inside it being eaten!!. A most enjoyable book and an insight into characters such as the Gamorean Guards, the Rancors keeper and Salacious Crumb.
