I haven't gotten to that yet. He's basically leading the remnants of the Imperial fleet in "Heir."

A cliffhanger?! 'Heir to the Empire' ends on a fucking cliffhanger?!

God dammit. Matt, what's the next book in the series?

Just bought "Dark Force Rising.' After browsing the 'Star Wars' shelves in Borders, I'm totally addicted.

Where do I go after 'The Thrawn Trilogy?" The 'Dark Empire' graphic novels from Dark Horse?

ugh. I dunno. Probably avoid all one-shot books. I think the next logical one is the Jedi Academy trilogy with Kevin J. Anderson (starring super-jedi Kyp Durron). Chronicles the start of Luke trying to set up a Jedi Academy, obviously. I didn't read the other two series there (Black Fleet Crisis and Corellian Trilogy) when I was younger. Then Zahn returns with the Hand of Thrawn duology and you just have some young adults novels about the characters from the Jedi Academy trilogy before the big massive reorganization of the Star Wars universe in the New Jedi Order books.

here's the spergopedia http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Timeline_of_books

Fun shit to read: Tales of the Bounty Hunters, Tales from Jabba's Palace.

I'm well into 'Dark Force Rising' in which a major plot device is that one of the Bothans has accused Admiral Ackbar of treason claiming he embezzled money from the New Republic and is giving it to the Empire.

When I write it out like that, I feel like a total dork.

Finished 'Dark Force Rising' which really found it's legs in the last half. The mix of new characters with old works really well. Maybe this guy should have written the prequels.
