A collection of 19 tales set in the lair of the Star Wars galaxy's most notorious and dangerous criminal, Jabba the Hutt. This book contains stories by Kevin Anderson, M. Shayne Bell, John Gregory Betancourt, Kenneth C. Flint, Ester Friesner and Barbara Hambly amongst others. SOFT

Awesome McPossum!

This collection was pretty cool. B'omarr monks, that enough made this collection cool. I enjoyed [b:Tales of the Bounty Hunters|131776|Tales of the Bounty Hunters|Kevin J. Anderson|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1320438026s/131776.jpg|2599174] a little bit more, as this really revolved directly around the Sarlac feeding and what leads up to it, which means many of the stories have some real overlap.

Boba vs Sarlacc. It was kind of a weirdly written story. ( )

Solid book, but some of the stories are not as good as others. The book mainly suffers from the fact it features stories about characters I just don't care about. But it is very readable and the story featuring Boba Fett is good. ( )

Star Wars Tales From Jabba's Palace is a great compilation of short stories from various authors. Kevin J. Anderson edits this book and does a good job of it. The stories take place at various times ranging from when life in the palace was normal to the time Luke Skywalker and his friends turned the place into an uproar. There are really good back stories for characters that are unmissable in Jabba's court and for those whom you see on screen in Star Wars VI for barley a moment. An altogether fun and entertaining novel that's pretty easy to read, thanks to it's being broken into nineteen stories. ( )

Good ole ROTJ revisited, well written and fun to dig into the backstories of some if the characters in the SW universe. Faves: the Weequay's divine magic 8-ball; the Ugly One finding love; Bobba Fett. ( )

—See-Threepio to Artoo-Detoo

who has been more helpful than any of Jabba's minions could ever have been, offering suggestions, troubleshooting obstacles, and navigating me through a forest of details that would have given even a Hutt a headache!

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0553568159, Mass Market Paperback)

One of the more prolific--and proficient--Star Wars authors, Kevin J. Anderson, edits and contributes to this anthology of ... well, tales from Jabba's palace. Each of the 19 short tales focuses on a different personality, from the rancor keeper to Salacious Crumb, putting faces and facts on the internecine intrigue swirling around everyone's favorite Huttese crime lord. (As it turns out, you can find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy than Mos Eisley.) Find out how Bib Fortuna hoped to overthrow Jabba, or hear the philosophical ramblings of a not-so-bright teenage skiff guard. Or, perhaps best, learn how Boba Fett escaped the Sarlacc in the Great Pit of Carkoon. Style, mood, and quality vary by author, but these Tales are mostly funny and mostly well done, including those by Anderson, Star Trek author A.C. Crispin, Nebula-winner George Alec Effinger, and Hugo-winner Timothy Zahn. --Paul Hughes
