Here's another vote for Timothy Zahn
What about Greg Bear?
Shouldn't this poll be called
Favorite Author other than Timothy Zahn?
It is missing several others too.
My favorite EU author is Timothy Zahn, but he's not on your list. Mike Stackpole would be my second choice.
I voted Stackpole only because he's my favorite after the noticeably absent Zhan. There might only be 10 polling options, but still, he should have been on there. After all, it was the Thrawn books that restarted Star Wars for all intents and purposes.
I know some people have taken issue with this poll, and that was certainly the point. Polls here are flawed, especially so when there is only a limited number of choices.
No one single author is "absent," because a list of people was given - so a decision between those choices is required. No SW author is any more important than any other in continuing the saga, so one's absence should be just as important as any others.
Basically polls here, and the "polls" prior to this feature are simply for "fun" - and that's about all they'll ever be worth. If I could've I would have posted every single Star Wars author ever to contribute to the saga - but it would be an only slightly more valid poll than this one.
In any case, keep posting your favorite authors, it's interesting nonetheless.
I figured mine was just a write in.
Hey, with all the problem this country has with voting, did TFN need to add to it?
Zahn, by a mile.
Dude, you forgot Zahn.
My favorite is Kevin J. Andersen.
in the interest of fairness, this poll should be locked and a new one created that represents all major Star Wars authors, Zahn and Anderson included.
In the interest of fairness, I'll let Ghengis create it.
I voted for Dan Wallace cause he's done a whole lot of cool things, and he started out like us. Fans. He was a hardcore fan before he was hired to do whatever by LFL. So, thats cool.
After that, Salvatore and Stackpole and. . . ohh, I love them all!
Why wasn't she included? Her portrayal of Han is second to none, IMHO.
I think the reason not everyone is included, is because, there is only room for 10 choices, in the poll creation program. Ghengis put up the choice he wanted to know about, I assume.
Zahn, voted for Stackpole, my second favorite.
No matter why he feels Zahn is falling out of favor, he forgets him himself
Zahn, as many of us.
Now, as I am posting, Zahn gets 13 votes, ahead of the poll.
#2 is Mike Stackpole with 8 votes,
#3 is Aaron Allston with 6 votes,
#4 ex aequo are James Luceno and Kathy Tyers (5)
#6 is RA Salvatore (4)
1 vote for all others except Jude Watson (0)
I think he's getting more votes then the others and hes not even on the list!!!
I feel pretty dumb this morning, I don't even know all the authors on there.
Oh yeah my vote is for Zahn.
