Now Shadows of the Empire....there's a terrific SW novel.
The only Star Wars novel I read was one about an alien invasion - I cannot remember the name but it was dreadful and I never finished it. I swapped it with someone for a Parker novel - I got the better end of the deal.
Vector Prime, perhaps? I know that book turned a lot of people off the EU--actually, I stopped following regularly cause of New Jedi Order.
JoeZhang might be talking about the novels featuring the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. They were set about 25 years after ROTJ and created a real division between many fans, some loving the idea of a threat even greater than the old Galactic Empire and others not liking the "Borgification" of the SW universe with some giant, collective alien threat.
