Star Wars: Poe Dameron Vol. 3: Legend Lost by Charles Soule

Star Wars: Poe Dameron Vol. 3: Legend LostStar Wars: Poe Dameron Vol. 3: Legend Lost by Charles Soule
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Twists, turns and double dealing.

A good set of adventures with Poe and his squadron. Sorting out the mystery of their betrayal, and more about the fate of Dameron's nemesis Terex. Nicely fit in as back story to The Force Awakens.

The Storms of Crait by Ben Acker

The Storms of Crait (Star Wars: The Last Jedi)
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Nice backstory to Crait!

This one-off book shows us Luke, Leia, Han and Chewie investigating Crait (seen recently in The Last Jedi) as a prospective Rebel base. There's adventure battle and double-dealing along the way. Good story, great artwork; very enjoyable.

John Carter lives!

Well, not John Carter, but....

This is my first foray into the dizzying world of Perry Rhodan, the incredible long-running German Space epic. It was... interesting. Reminiscent in many ways of the sword and planet tales of Edgar Rice Burroughs: light on science, long on valiant battle.

My interest in this was piqued by my recent purchase of "Fire with Fire" a Star Trek novel by German authors. This alone is a first - the English publication of a non-English Star Trek novel. Reading about the authors I found at least one had background with the Perry Rhodan franchise, which lead me to start digging into this gigantic SF edifice. As Mr Spock would say, "fascinating!"

(BTW - shout out to, which has scanned copies of many of the Perry Rhodan books for loan.)
