Timothy Zahn (born September 1, 1951 in Chicago, Illinois) is a writer of science fiction short stories and novels. His novella Cascade Point won the 1984 Hugo Award.[1] He is the author of the Blackcollar trilogy and the Cobra series (seven novels so far), ten Star Wars Expanded Universe novels, including seven novels featuring Grand Admiral Thrawn: the Thrawn Trilogy, the Hand of Thrawn duology, Outbound Flight, and Choices of One.

The Thrawn trilogy marked a revival in the fortunes of the Star Wars franchise, bringing it widespread attention for the first time in years; all three Thrawn-trilogy novels made the New York Times best-seller lists,[2] and set the stage and tone for most of the franchise's Expanded-Universe content.[3] Zahn also wrote the young adult Dragonback series and the popular Conquerors' Trilogy.
