My mother had some old paperbacks that featured Han Solo and Chewbacca prior to their involvement in the Rebellion. Anyone have some titles and, perhaps, ISBN's?

  • I remember these from when I was young. I should reread them, as I was so young I had trouble understanding them (Grade 3 I think?) There was a similar series based around Lando you should also check out. Best part of these: It shows star wars can be fun and cool without jedi all over the damn place.

Maybe these ones:


I've only read Han Solo's Revenge, it was pretty good. These, along with "Splinter of the Mind's Eye" were the first spin-off books.


Might be thinking of the Han Solo Trilogy. A good series, I read it once long ago. It covers Han's early years as a pilot and then a smuggler. Without giving away details, there's a lot of interesting information there about Han's history up to A New Hope.

The series has the following titles:

  • The Paradise Snare
  • The Hutt Gambit
  • Rebel Dawn
  • The Han Solo Adventures were the ones I was looking for (I remember the covers shown in the article). I'll give these a read too though. Thanks!

The books were Han Solo at Stars' End / Han Solo's Revenge / Han Solo and the Lost Legacy written by Brian Daley and were republished in 1992 in a compilation available still from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/The-Han-Solo-Adventures-Revenge/dp/0345379802
