Here’s what Traviss had to say about the book during a publishing panel at Comic-Con International:

“Why did the Mandalorians side with the Yuuzhan Vong? What were they thinking? They’re not stupid, they had to have their reasons, and that was the gap I wanted to fill. It’s actually not what it seems. And the title, A Practical Man, is a reference to an obscure song that I’m not very sure few people would have heard in the UK. It’s about sticking to what you believe.”


The cover artist is Steven D. Anderson; the illustration is based on a recent publicity still.

    I’m really looking forward to this! It’s a little surprising that Traviss hasn’t read Ann Crispin’s Fett trilogy, The Bounty Hunter Wars, which was simply amazing. I hope that she isn’t full of herself, like a musician that won’t play any covers.

    A true fan wouldn’t be able to resist the other stories. Even Boba read fiction…

    Oops, that should be K.W. Jeter on The Bounty Hunter Wars. (I was also impressed with the Han Solo Trilogy, written by Crispen)
