📚 four of 2020: The Empire Strikes Back, by Donald F. Glut ⭐️⭐️
A clumsy and unimaginative adaptation. Most interesting for the handwritten notes contributed by a former owner of this copy, correcting all the Han/Leia romance to be screen-accurate.
A furious lightsaber duel is under way. DARTH VADER is backing LUKE SKYWALKER towards the end of the gantry. A quick move by Vader chops off Luke’s hand! It goes spinning off into the ventilation shaft.
Luke backs away. He looks down, and realizes there’s nowhere to go but straight down.
