Timothy Zahn read the first three chapters of his upcoming novel Scoundrels at Origins Game Fair in Columbus, OH.
It did not disappoint.
The first three chapters will suck readers in within moments. If the rest of the book is the same way, then Scoundrels is bound to be a fun, exciting trip into the Star Wars universe.
Zahn showed off the full cover (looks fantastic). Zahn writes Han Solo perfectly. Each smart remark and quip feels like it should be in the movies. In addition, he gave character to Chewbacca (visible in the excerpt previously released) that resonates strongly.
No doubt here, I’m picking up Scoundrels the day of release.
The novel takes place directly after A New Hope. Winter doesn’t know that Leia is alive.
Look for a recap of Aaron Allston, Michael Stackpole and Timothy Zahn talking about Star Wars novels. It will be up soon.
