Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire and the Mos Eisley Cantina In our recent forays into the Star Wars Expanded Universe, we’ve been exploring the stories that took place during the events of the original trilogy. First up, we’ve got the Shadows of the Empire novel (and soundtrack?), which let us know just how hard it was to get Han’s rescue mission together, and introduced us all the to Black Sun. Then we tackle Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina , chock-full of short stories starring… just about any figure you can remember from that bar. There’s some seriously goofy fun to be had, in this collection!
