    Heir to the Empire is definitely an awesome book, but it's not the first expanded universe story written. That honor goes to Splinter of the Mind's Eye, by Alan Dean Foster(to note, Foster also ghost-wrote the novelization of the original Star Wars movie).

    Also published before Heir to the Empire were the Han Solo trilogy and the Lando Calrissian trilogy.

    Of course, in quality, all of those, while still good books, are dwarfed by the Heir to the Empire trilogy. In fact, most of the newer star wars books are also dwarfed by the Heir to the Empire trilogy. It's that good.
