A very interesting book written from the point of view of various people in the Star Wars universe. Not necessarily a book on the conceptual design of the Star Wars look, but rather almost a sociology book. The chapters go around to various planets (all from the original trilogy) and are written from the perspective of explorers, sociologists, aliens, governmental employees, etc. It has a very "you are living in this universe" type of feel, as oppose to, "this is what the writers and producers wanted Star Wars to look like". It contains a great deal of the original artwork by famous Star Wars conceptual artist Ralph McQuarrie. His work really adds a unique and in-depth visualization to what you're reading. Overall, it's a unique look at the worlds and cultures of Star Wars and provides insight that you wouldn't get from simply watching the films. Read it during my childhood and still have it today. ( )

A pleasure to read for Star Wars fans. Divided in to several chapters all taking place on different planets from movies ie Dagoba, Tattoine, Yavin 4, etc. All are written from different perspectives. The Tattoine for example is written from the point of view a shaping-shifting sociologist. The Dagoba is told as a journal of a exporation team sent out in the late days of the Republic. It was well-written and the illustrations throughout the book were beautiful in my opinion. ( )

Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana, she's attractive and well-mannered but only a few close friends - which isn't surprising, considering Sookie has abilities as a mind reader. It's not a quality that has the guys beating down her door - unless they're vampires, werewolves, or other supernatural beings. And now some of them aren't just friendly - they're family. When Sookie sees her brother Jason's eyes start to change, she knows he's about to turn into a werepanther for the first time. Her concern for her brother becomes cold fear when a sniper sets his deadly sights on the local changeling population - and Jason's new panther brethren suspect he may be the shooter. Now, Sookie has until the next full moon to find out who's behind the attacks - unless the killer decides to find her first.… (more)
