From Media Monitor: "Why was starship captain Han Solo booted out of the Empire, and how did he become a smuggler?"


  • The Dark Lord by Kathy Resch ("John shivered, though it was not cold. Vader was closer now; he cold sense it. He spared a moment to glance down the mountain side and instantly regretted it. In the darkness, he could see nothing, and he was wasting precious time.... 'John,' came a soft voice from below, and he looked down, blinking away tears in his eyes. Obi-Wan regarded him with an expression of support and sympathy.") (3)

  • Reluctant Hero by Wendy Rathbone ("Han squinted as blackness threatened again. But he managed to keep it at bay as his eyes focused on a rich, brown face and dancing mahogany eyes. 'You're not really an Empire officer, now, are you? The clothes don't quite fit. Want to tell me about it?" Han coughed before he finally found his voice. 'Wh... who are you?' 'The name's Lando. Lando Calrissian. You looked like you could use a friend and I... well, you caught me on a generous day.'") (35)

  • Race to Torliine by Kathy Resch ("Han was alive. Luke was certain of it. It was there, somehow, in the Force. But the tiny thread of life that he recognized as Han and no other wasn't clear enough to even try to locate him. And Leia, though she'd never spoken of it, blamed him for that...")
