Star Wars Galaxy of Fear #12
The Hunger
by John Whitman

Published by Bantam

Scott's Rating:   3.5 out of 4

Tash, Zak, and Hoole decide they must find an uninhabited planet to hide from the Empire (who has incidentally sent Boba Fett to hunt them down). They go to the central registry of planets to look up one that hasn't been fully documented yet. As luck (and the Force) would have it, they pick Dagobah. The gang quickly heads there along with some smugglers who are also on the run. When they arrive, they run into a group of people called the Children. Turns out they are the decendants of some marooned scientists who explored the planet years before. (The same ones seen in the Illustrated Guide to the Star Wars Universe.) As the group begins to be picked off one by one, Zak quickly realizes that they are cannibals! Ack! And don't forget to throw Boba Fett and Yoda into the mix. Will they get off the planet alive?


    The Galaxy of Fear books continue to get better the farther Whitman gets away from the old formula. And this book, dealing with cannibalism, is genuinely creepy. I also like the way that this book subtely ties in with the Illustrated Star Wars Universe. A nice touch. It was also great to see an encounter between Boba Fett and Yoda. I'm not sure how well this will fit into continuity once the new films come out. We'll see.


    I thought that it was odd that neither Hoole or Boba Fett recognized Yoda. As seen in the trailers for The Phantom Menace, Yoda was obviously of some prominence. You'd think they'd recognize him. Also, Boba Fett was kind of wimped out in this. He was a klutz and was captured by the weak Children too quickly. Fett would have been a little harder to pin down, methinks. (But then again, he should not have been launched into the Sarlaac by a lucky hit from Han, either.) Otherwise, this was enjoyable.


    Getting a spoonful of soup and finding a ring in it. Eeeeewww!
