Star Wars Jabba the Hut-Art of the Deal (Paperback)
|The most loathsome character in the galaxy oozes through this collection of four short stories.|
The Gaar Suppoon Hit
Jabba finds himself bartering with Garr Suppoon, rumored to be an absolute demon at the negotiating table. There's a valuable lesson to be learned here: in a deal with the demon, you can always refuse. In a deal with Jabba, it's not advised.
The Hunger of Princess Nampi
Jabba has an old saying: if you can't beat 'em, buy 'em out! And that's just what he attempts to do when he encounters an unexpected nemesis on his journey through the galaxy. But he may have to part with something more personal than his precious spice if he's going to close this deal!
The Dynasty Trap
Jabba has a hot freighter on his hands and he's looking to unload it, quickly and discreetly. Enter Cabrool Nuum, a second-hand ship trader whose reputation for discretion is as long as his many years in the business. Unfortunately for Jabba, the years seem to have caught up with Cabrool, and his murderous offspring have taken advantage of the old man's dotage, just as they plan to take advantage of Jabba's impending arrival!
Everyone hopes to get a big break someday, move up to the top seat in their line of work. But when that line of work is intergalactic crime, you've got to make your own breaks. Bib Fortuna, Jabba's loyal lieutenant, has plotted a slave revolt against the Hurt. We've seen how Jabba handles negotiations -- now we'll see how he handles Betrayal.
