Every guy who's ever seen Star Wars has wanted to be Han Solo. Now, A.C. Crispin's Han Solo Trilogy fills in the backstory, and does it well. Rebel Dawn tries to bridge the gap to the original trilogy and tie up loose ends with Han and Bria's relationship. It also explains why Chewie worried Lando still held a grudge against Han.

I did like the intrigue with the Hutts. Crispin makes them into believable mafioso types. Xizor was also well employed. At the least, the trilogy will give you a new respect for everybody's favorite smuggler and how far he's traveled to become respectable.
