Rate this:
In the dusty heat of twin-sunned Tatooine lives the wealthiest gangster in a hundred worlds, master of a vast crime empire and keeper of a vicious, flesh-eating monster for entertainment (and disposal of his enemies). Bloated and sinister, Jabba the Hutt might have made a good joke -- if he weren't so dangerous. A cast of soldiers, spies, assassins, scoundrels, bounty hunters, and pleasure seekers have come to his palace, and every visitor to Jabba's grand abode has a story. Some of them may even live to tell it. . . .

Great book! I'll try to keep this spoiler free, but leave a little insight to help you decide whether this book is for you or not.

Basically, it's a collection of short stories revolving around the time of "Return of the Jedi" occurring about 4-ABY timewise. Most of the short stories revolve around official canon so this one is a keeper- it's not like the other EU stuff that could get thrown out by the new continuity rules post-IP sale.

We see the backstories and after-stories of many of the prominent cast of goons, thugs, (and even some heroes) lurking around Jabba's Palace around the time of his downfall.

Most importantly, be sure to catch the short story about Boba Fett's little tumble into the Sarlacc Pit. A must read !!

I read this book a few years ago and enjoyed all the backstories of characters that you see onscreen for only a few moments. I recently reread the story about Mara Jade; I had just read the Thrawn trilogy and needed a Mara Jade fix.
