There have been many authors that have written Star Wars books over the years and I was wondering who was your favorite author and why? For me personally I can't decide. I like all of them for some reason or other. Timothy Zahn has the most authentic feel of the movies to me. I like that he has the first chapter start on a Star Destroyer or some Trade Federation ship in Outbound Flight. Matthew Stover's books are thought provoking. James Luceno brings in a lot of continuity points from other books and puts them into his books Aaron Allston and Michael A. Stackpole have starfighter action with a lot of humor in them. Karen Traviss has Mando's in them and a lot of action Troy Denning writes a lot of action and does a good Han and Leia relationship Drew Karpyshyn writes Sith novels pretty good. Michael Reaves has written in bools in the Prequel era. There are other authors that have written books but the only ones I could get on the poll.
