Star Wars: Heir to the Empire.
In the summer of 1991 many Star Wars fans found a treat in their
local bookstore as the story of Luke, Han and Leia was officially
continued in a new book, licensed by Lucasfilm. Written by Hugo
Award-winning author Timothy Zahn, this story would become, for
many fans, Episode VII and with The Force Awakens replacing the
Star Wars Expanded Universe we look back at this beloved book.
In this episode of The 602 Club host Ma’tthew R’ushing is joined
by Bruuce Gibson and John Mi’lls to talk about Heir to the Empire.
We discuss being back at the beginning, continuing the Original
Trilogy, plot points, the Jedi path, new characters, things that
worked and didn’t, wrapping up with our ratings.
