[Winner Lose All] First look at Winner Lose All
RandomHouse.com has added to their online catalogue[External site - opens in a new window/tab] a listing for Winner Lose All: A Lando Calrissian Tale, Timothy Zahn's 65-page e-book novella that is a prequel to his forthcoming Scoundrels novel, with a cover and blurb:

Calrissian’s no stranger to card tournaments, but this one has a truly electrifying atmosphere. That’s because the prize is a rare sculpture worth a whopping fifty million credits. If Lando’s not careful, he’s going to go bust, especially after meeting identical twins Bink and Tavia Kitik, master thieves who have reason to believe that the sculpture is a fake. The Kitiks are beautiful, dangerous, and determined to set things right—and they’ve convinced Lando to help them expose the scam. But what they’re up against is no simple double cross, nor even a twisted triple cross. It is a full-blown power play of colossal proportions. For an unseen mastermind holds all the cards and has a fail-proof solution for every problem: murder.

Winner Lose All is due to be available from 10th December in the US.

[Blood Ties: Boba Fett is Dead] Blood Ties: Boba Fett is Dead
By Tom Taylor et al.
Reviewed by J. L. Polacek, USA
Blood Ties: Boba Fett is Dead was a exhilarating story of Boba Fett. I mean when i first of this i could not believe my own ears that one of the best bounty hunters had actually died. But i knew that it was just trick. As I've seen, Boba Fett is one man you should never ever cross or try to get even with. It was great to see Boba Fett helping his half-brother Connor Freeman out again. Plus i really like how they created tension between Boba Fett over his ex-wife and his daughter. I also like how Fett went to great lengths to find out who was trying to kill him and his family. This shows you that no matter how strong and smart you are, that Boba Fett will not go quietly into the night.

[Darth Maul: Death Sentence] Darth Maul: Death Sentence
By Tom Taylor et al.
Reviewed by J. L. Polacek, USA
Darth Maul: Death Sentence was a great story. I like how Darth Maul was seen at first as hero a "demon of light", how he was seen as a hero to the people till the end. I also like how they had a Trandoshan as a Jedi. We have not seen many of those except as hunter and bounty hunters.
