The latest edition of Star Wars Insider includes “Heist”, a short story by Timothy Zahn that precludes the events of his upcoming novel, Scoundrels. Like Winner Lose All, this story features a few of the scoundrels, in this case it’s just Tavia and Bink Kitik. In “Heist”, the twin sisters work a con on a wealthy individual named Christoff. The heist takes place on a starliner cruise, and while brief, it does help introduced the new characters. Bink is a bit of a troublemaker, while her sister Tavia is the more ethical one. Tavia is also good with electronics.

If you don’t have a subscription to Star Wars Insider but would still like to check out Timothy Zahn’s new short story “Heist”, then don’t forget that you can use the Zinio Digital Magazines’ previewer. Follow the link, click on the cover of Star Wars Inisder 138, and flip through the magazine to page 48. Remember, you only get three zoom ups, so use them wisely. It’s just enough to check out the new story and the artwork by Brian Rood.
