I will read this book. I find most of Zhan's stuff interesting. As long as Thrawn is not mentioned, I will be satisfied. I have not read the 'Outbound Flight'. From what I have read in summaries, the 'Outbound Flight' is not of my taste. I do like Episode IV, V, and VI books. I allways thought it would be interesting to read some EU about events that occured between Episode IV and V. I am in for the read.
