sample text, from the second volume
[From the zine]:

THE STORY SO FAR: Imperial scion Harnon Gerrit wants one thing and one thing only - the chance to revenge himself on the rebels who bested him on Sallus. Learning that the telepath Leyan is on Imra, he employs a slaver, Garff, to capture her so that she can be used as bait to draw the others into his net. Unbeknownst to him, Skywalker has also arrived on Imra aboard the Millenium Falcoln to collect Leyan, whose mission, to collect some data discs from the planet's underground leader, a likeable rogue named Galadyn Palermo, has been successfully accomplished. The Colonel-Supervisor of Imra, Azra Jerdic, with whom Gerrit is theoretically working, has, however, learnt of the Falcon's presence and has men posted around the ship's docking bay.

Although Garff's first attempt to capture Leyan is foiled by Luke, the second succeeds. Due to the large number of Imperial troops on the planet, the rebels have to wait for Galadyn to find Leyan; but the news he brings them is bad - Garff specialises in selling telepaths into slavery, using a telepath in his employ, Daviot, to keep his victims in line. They are aboard a ship en route to Lillenas, a planet famous for its slave markets. Narrowly escaping from the port when Jerdic overrules the better judgement of his garrison's commander, Farron, and has the bay in which the rebels' ship lies attacked, the Falcon heads out Into space with Galadyn joining the rebels on board. As Solo frantically works on the co-ordinates for Lillenas, somewhere ahead, the ship bearing Darth Vader is closing in on them fast . ..
