46: Thrawn: Treason and Star Wars Myths & Fables

A review of two very different recent Stars Wars audiobooks. Thrawn: Treason, written by Timothy Zahn and narrated by Marc Thompson, is the third in the new canon series featuring the Chiss Grand Admiral. Star Wars Myths and Fables, written by George Mann and narrated by James Monroe Iglehart, is a short story collection of mostly stand alone stories that works well for younger (though not too young) listeners or as brief glimpses at the stories within the Star Wars Universe.
