Re: tell me about Star Wars novels!

I guess a timeline of "essential" novels, at least in my opinion, could go something like this:

Rogue Planet by Greg Bear (not my favorite EU novel, but it's kind of a prequel to the NJO series)
Outbound Flight by Timothy Zahn
Shatterpoint by Matthew Stover (not really essential, but the subject plays a role later, plus it's just an awesome book)
Allegiance by Timothy Zahn
Shadows of the Empire by Steve Perry (I personally don't think it's essential, but others do, and it's a decent book)
The Truce at Bakura by Kathy Tyers (not great, but it directly follows ROTJ and has a few important character moments)
Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor by Matthew Stover

Although I personally prefer to kind of ignore almost everything that takes place after NJO, and just imagine that the storyline jumps from NJO to Legacy, one hundred years later.
