BadSamaritan Posted June 12, 2005 Share Posted June 12, 2005 Ladies and Gentleman, welcome to the first, and hopefully only, Worst Star Wars Novel Awards!! Tonight, we will discover which Star Wars novels not only are horrible reads, but possibly should never have been written in the first place! First and foremost, let me tell you that making this list was far from easy! With so many books out there to read, there were many contenders. But We have whittled them down to the six worst books and/or trilogies. And here they are!! CHILDREN OF THE JEDI by Barbara Hambly - Some consider this to be a very good book at first, but in the end, it turns into just another "Imperial superweapon threatens the galaxy" book. Thats all this book even needed to make the list. THE CRYSTAL STAR by Vonda N. McIntyre - Talk about confusing. We have creatures from alternate universes, former Emperors hands' on mobile planets, and old lovers from Hans past. between all of these, this book blazed its way onto the contentin list. THE NEW REBELLION by Kristine Kathryn Rusch - Fallen jedi apprentice? Check. Luke Skywalker in trouble? Check. Warfleet preparing to cause problems? Check. Making the worst SW Novel ever list? Check check check!!! DARKSABER by Kevin J. Anderson - Look folks, more superweapons!! This time under the command of Dorja the Hutt!! The only thing that comes close to trying to save this book is Admiral Daala re-uniting the Empire. And even that gets a little out of hand. To the list with you!! 18) PLANET OF TWILIGHT by Barbara Hambly - Planet that enhances force users abilities? ok, I can belive that, kinda. Little critters that cause an uncureable plague if they make it off said planet? Ummmm...... Imperial warlord has plans to use sencient rocks to retake the galaxy? What the hell? Ok, thats to much. Welcome to the contention list! The Black Fleet Crisis Trilogy by Michael P. Kube-McDowell - Two factors led to this trilogy making the list. One, Luke searching for his mother. The whole "White current" thing was to much. Way to much. Add in Lando and the Teljkon Vegabond, and you have the ruination of what could have been an excellent trilogy. Ok folks, theres the list!! Now get to voting!! Lets see who the biggest loser really is!! I once knew a great man. Nothing got to him, and he always smiled. May he forever rest in peace, knowing fully well that his freinds shall remember him. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
