Michael A. Stackpole
Isard's Revenge (Star Wars: X-Wing, Book 8)
Bantam Spectra (paperback, 336 pages, $5.99/$8.99 Can)
Publication date: April 13, 1999

Michael Stackpole kicked off the Star Wars: X-Wing series with the first four books before Aaron Allston took over for books 5-7. Now Stackpole is back for the latest installment. "After having been instrumental in defeating Thrawn, the Rogues return to Coruscant to celebrate their great victory. It is here that they make a terrible discovery--Ysanne Isard did not die at Thyferra and it is she who has been leaving a trail of dead bodies of those who were with Corran Horn on the Lusankya. Now it's up to the Rogues to rescue their compatriots and foil the remnants of the Empire."
Battletech: Prince of Havoc (Twilight of the Clans, Volume VII)
Roc (paperback, 288 pages, $5.99/$7.99 Can)
Publication date: January 1, 1999

Michael A. Stackpole, in addition to being one of the standard bearers for Star Wars fiction with the X-Wing series and the new bestseller I, Jedi, is also closely associated with the Battletech universe thanks to his seminal early Warrior Trilogy. He also wrote Grave Covenant (Twilight of the Clans, Volume II), and Lethal Heritage, among others. "Trained to be the Inner Sphere's finest warrior, Prince Victor-Steiner Davion has only known one enemy in battle: the Clans. A year earlier he led a massive counter-strike against the Smoke Jaguar Clan, pursuing them all the way to their homeworld. He then faced all of the Clans in one last battle for supremacy. But for a man of war like Prince Victor, can there ever be peace? When he returns home he finds the Inner Sphere in tatters, with a new order in power...leaving him a hero without a home.

Eyes of Silver
Bantam Spectra (paperback, 447 pages, $5.99/$7.99 Can)
Publication date: December 15, 1998

The latest fantasy epic from the author of Once A Hero, A Hero Born, and the Star Wars: X-Wing series looks like a standalone novel. "Eight centuries ago, the legendary Keerana Dost conquored a vast empire. Now younger nations battle for the remnants of his realm. As the turmoil spreads, princes and spies, priests and heretics are drawn into the fray. The warrior-priest Malachy Kidd, blinded in combat years before, finds himself holding the fate of the world in his hands, using his powerful battlemagics in service to his god... protecting a figure who may be the very devil himself." I dunno about you, but those silver eyes creep me out.
Star Wars: I, Jedi
Bantam Spectra (reprint, paperback, 577 pages, $5.99/$8.99 Can)
Publication date: June 2, 1999 (First Edition: May 1998)

One of the better Star Wars novels of last year is reprinted with fairly handy timing. "Corran Horn was an officer in the Corellian Security Force before casting his lot with the New Republic. As the grandson of a legendary Jedi hero, he has latent Force powers that have yet to be developed. But he has managed to distinguish himself with Rogue Squadron, the X-wing fighter force that has become the scourge of the Empire and of the pirates that prey on Republic shipping. When a new pirate band begins terrorizing the space lanes, the Rogue Squadron seems at last to have met its match. The pirates appear uncannily aware of the squadron's plans and tactics, and are able to escape even the cleverest ambushes. Either there is a security leak...or the pirates have access to a dark and unnatural power that only a trained Jedi could contend with."
