    Han Solo should be basking in his moment of glory. After all, the cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But after losing the reward his heroics earned him, Han's got nothing to celebrate. Especially since he's deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. There's a bounty on Han's head - and if he can't cough up the credits, he'll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a king's ransom. Or maybe a gangster's fortune?

    Would you listen to Scoundrels: Star Wars again? Why?

    Zahn some how writes great books that happen to be Star Wars books. But he is also able to capture the Star Wars feel like it could be on the screen. Voices were great as well. Some of the sound effects could be Jaring but by the second or third chapter they became part of the backdrop. Fun book I would buy more.


    What other book might you compare Scoundrels: Star Wars to and why?

    To me it seemed like Oceans 11 meets Star Wars.


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    Both Han and Lando are spot on.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Its Star Wars. Great little space romp.


    Any additional comments?

    More Unabridged Zahn would be great.

  • Ready Player One

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    If you could sum up Agent to the Stars in three words, what would they be?

    Fun Smart Approachable


    What other book might you compare Agent to the Stars to and why?

    Not sure.. Kind of stands on its own.


    What about Wil Wheaton’s performance did you like?

    Wil brings out the characters John creates like no one else. A Scalzi book read by Wil is an instant buy for me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not extreme just fun and funny.

    Red Shirts is on sale now. In the middle and its quite good.

    Some of the Best fantasy I have listened to in a long while. Butcher weaves an impressive yarn showing complexity and grace. Kate reads it with style. Any Dresden fans who have not found there way here should drop everything right now and start this series. Thank you Jim.
