This book makes me so happy. On the one hand, it took me back to the days of [b:Tales from Jabba's Palace|353476|Tales from Jabba's Palace (Star Wars)|Kevin J. Anderson|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1403191250s/353476.jpg|343685] and [b:Tales of the Bounty Hunters|131776|Tales of the Bounty Hunters (Star Wars)|Kevin J. Anderson|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1411172275s/131776.jpg|2599174], when Star Wars short stories were in their prime and foundational to my reading life. On the other hand, this book fleshes out A New Hope in a way that utterly outstrips the Legends material. The lineup of authors is astonishing and they run the gamut of style, tone, and emotion. There were stories that made me laugh out loud and also those that made me think deeply about aspects of a film I have loved my whole life. There were also stories that brought me to tears, especially around the destruction of Alderaan. This is an absolute must read for Star Wars fans.… (mais)

3.5. This is a hit and miss mix of short stories celebrating Star Wars: A New Hope. With more than forty contributors (therefore, forty stories),it's hard to say that each story is a stand out. Some stories were sadly quite forgettable. However, for every lame story, you get an amazing one that expands and reimagines movements from the film through a supporting character's point of view (from both the original and new canon of characters). I loved how the best of these humanized supporting characters and even aliens within the film. My favorite stories: Gary Whitta's "Raymus" which bridges the gap from Rogue One and A New Hope through the eyes of Captain Antilles, Meg Cabot's take on Aunt Beru, Claudia Gray's study of an old Obi-Wan conversing with force ghost Qui-Gon, Kieron Gillen's amazing story about new canon character Aphra (please Disney make an origin story film about her, please!), and Time of Death by Cavan Scott. There is a story in this collection bound to please any Star Wars fan. Perhaps forty stories was a little much? Neat concept but not necessary. Give us the masterful ones, and that's enough.… (mais)

Loved loved loved this book! I don't usually like collections of short stories, even on a theme, as much as I do novels, but these stories were all equally well-written and this theme was clever: it retells the first Star Wars movie (A New Hope, ahem, Episode IV) from the points of view of a plethora of minor characters, many of whom we hardly see on screen at all. The stories go in order from the beginning of the movie's plotline to the end. So we get a story from the point of view of a stormtrooper, guarding Princess Leia on the first Death Star. We get a fun story told by a Jawa who finds a certain droid's holoprojector. There's a story told by the "mouse droid" on the Death Star involving a secret liasion by certain Imperials. I also loved the story from the diagnoga's point of view, so clever! (That's the trash compactor monster, for those 6 of you who aren't as into Star Wars as I am, haha!) We even get some Yoda and some Qui Gon Jinn stories, too, that cleverly tie in to A New Hope and I just love it! Plus, I got to read stories by many of my favorite YA authors and I met some adult sci fi authors I've never heard of before; that was a fun perk of the book.… (mais)

The funny stories are not just the best, but also profound: The Sith of Datawork, Born in the Storm, The Trigger, Of MSE-6 and Men and The Angle are all excellent and worth the read alone.
