For more than 30 years, fans have been waiting for the definitive guide to the monsters, vehicles and aliens in the Star Wars universe. Some of them may find that this collection of essays by Andrew Rilstone passes the time while they carry on waiting. Starting with the opening night of Phantom Menace, Andrew explains why the prequels aren't quite as bad as everyone say; wonders if sometimes a lightsaber is just a lightsaber; and tries to show why the Saga has become so important to so many people. A very personal journey to the heart of the Star Wars saga, in the company of such luminaries as Joseph Campbell, Jack Kirby...and Bob Dylan? Includes parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 of the seminal "Little Orphan Anakin", though not necessarily in that order. ...the most intelligent and insightful articles ever on the Star Wars hexology....” Mike Taylor ...one of the best things I’ve read on the whole Star Wars phenomenon in the last 27 years... “Speedysnail”
