From the Inside Flap
Sixteen stories from the most infamous cantina in the universe...by some of today's leading writers of science fiction.
In a far corner of the universe, on the small desert planet of Tatooine, there is a dark, nic-i-tain-filled cantina where you can down your favorite intoxicant while listening to the best jazz riffs in the universe. But beware your fellow denizens of this pangalactic watering hole, for they are cutthroats and cutpurses, assassins and troopers, humans and aliens, gangsters and thieves....

I also enjoyed the discussion at the end of the book that gave wonderful information about the different time lines in the Star Wars Saga as well as reading lists and excerpts from various books.
What's nice (or not so nice) is that these stories offer you perspectives and connected stories about the characters in the cantina. Some authors reveal hidden facts about the story you read one or two chapters ago that other authors wrote. It's rather quite cool. Other authors don't really spend too much effort tying in their story in a unique and interesting way, but then again, you don't see any star wars novels made by them for very long. All in all, a very rare and interesting look at some famous background characters which is a nice change of pace.
The Band's Tale: Kind of boring, but informative 5/10
Greedo's Tale: The best of the book 10/10
Tonnika Sisters: Not well written, kind of confusing 6/10
Muftak & Kabe: I really liked this one 8/10
Hammerhead's Tale: Liked this one too 8/10
Bartender's Tale: This one is just filler material, not very interesting at all 4/10
Nightily: It was unexpected and alright 6/10
Devaronian's Tale: Pretty boring, filler material 5/10
The Jawa's Tale: I really liked this one a lot 9/10
The Ranat's Tale: A tie-in with The Jawa's Tale, all I can say is somewhat filler 6/10
The Stormtrooper's Tale: A drag at times, but a quite unexpected ending
Soup's On: This one is absolute garbage and completely filler 2/10
The Spacer's Tale: Some of the dialogue I find unbelievable, but I liked it 8/10
Doctor Death: It was really ok 7/10
Drawing the Maps of Peace: This one was very good 9/10
One Last Night: I thought this one was confusing but better than some of the others 6/10
I recommend taking this out from the library or buying it used in mass paperback. It's worth reading, especially for the cantina lovers out there, but it is in no way one of the best Star Wars books.
P.S. Go prequels!
especially to those die hard Star Wars fans that want to be taken to a galaxy far away.
