SYNOPSIS
The denizens of the Star Wars universe–soldiers, spies, smugglers, pleasure seekers and cutthroats of every stripe. Ever wonder what their stories are, what brought them to the Mos Eisley cantina or how they ended up in Jabba the Hutt's palace? Here's your chance to find out. Kevin J. Anderson has pulled together 40–count 'em–40 wildly imaginative tales by some of SF's leading writers, among them Timothy Zahn, Barbara Hambly, Judy and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, Daniel Keys Moran, Esther Friesner, George Alec Effinger and AC Crispin.

There's the tale of Bib Fortuna, Jabba the Hutt's majordomo, who has plans to overthrow the Hutt and take over his fortune–if he isn't betrayed by his co-conspirators first....

Oola, the Dancer, proud and graceful, who dances the perfect dance–on the edge of eternity....

Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes, Jabba's full-time musicians who dare to break their exclusive contract for one dazzling gig....

The Hammerhead Momaw Nadon, an exiled Ithorian priest who plots to destroy a vicious Imperial Lieutenant–even if he must break his most sacred vow to do it....

And Boba Fett, the galaxy's most feared bounty hunter, who embarks on what may be his last great adventure–tracking and killing his old adversary Han Solo.

Each has a story to tell...if he lives to tell it.

The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
