Tales from Jabba's Palace

by Kevin J. Anderson
Tales from Jabba's Palace - Kevin J. Anderson N/A

Enter the lair of the galaxy's most notorious criminal in nineteen stories from today's masters of science fiction.

In the dusty heat of twin-sunned Tatooine lives the wealthiest gangster in a hundred worlds, master of a vast crime empire and keeper of vicious, flesh-eating monster for the entertainment(and disposal of his enemies). Bloated and sinister, Jabba the Hutt might have made a good joke – if he weren't so dangerous. A cast of soldiers, spies, assassins, scoundrels, bounty hunters, and pleasure seekers have come to his palace, and every visitor to Jabba's grand abode has a story. Some of them may even live to tell it...
