…to one day have a cover as awesome as this.
I read some of Alan Dean Foster’s stuff when I was a kid and always enjoyed it (Nor Crystal Tears was fantastic). He wrote a Star Wars book, Splinter of the Mind’s Eye which was, I believe, the first EU book ever written, at least for Star Wars, which puts in the running for first EU ever. It came out before the revelations of Empire, so there’s a romantic sub plot between Luke and Leia that’s hilariously creepy. Maybe I’ll hunt around and find some of his other stuff sometime.
