Lost Star Wars Short Story Now Online Again

by Rich Handley

Several years ago, I had a short story published on starwars.com titled "Lando Calrissian: Idiot's Array," which was a sequel to two other Star Wars tales I'd co-written ("Crimson Bounty," with Charlene Newcomb, for Star Wars Adventure Journal #14 and "Lady Luck," with Darko Macan, for Star Wars Tales #3). Unfortunately, the short-fiction section was later removed from starwars.com, leaving "Idiot's Array" in limbo.

A scene from "Lady Luck," set shortly before "Idiot's Array." Dominic Raynor's
resemblance to Michael Corleone in The Godfather Part III is no coincidence.

Today, I found out (thanks to friends Ed Erdelac and Greg Mitchell) that Del Rey Books has made a deal with Lucasfilm to present all of these lost tales on its site. "Idiot's Array" is now available here. This is a big relief, as I was always bummed out about its unexpected unavailability, as were all of the authors whose work had been taken offline.
