Some basic information about the X-wing and New Jedi Order (NJO) books. If a German translation is available, the corresponding data is given in brackets.

Over the time I might add other Star Wars books as well, but I'll mainly concentrate on the X-wing series (since it is my favorite). If you are interested in more detailed information about all SW books, please visit Florian's site (it's in English and German). He has a lot more about them than I do.

I use a rating system with maximum twelve points (or X-wings *g*). So 12/12 is best, 1/12 is worst. If you click on the X-wings, you'll get my review of the book. Please be careful, the reviews contain spoilers. Books that are only available in electronic format are marked in light orange.

Besides the books, there are also a Rogue Squadron comic series and some pilot-related short stories.
