    Dash Rendar. Jacen Solo. Sana Starros. Mara Jade. None of these characters would exist without the brilliant minds of the authors who have contributed to our galaxy far, far away for the past 40 years. Crack open the spine of your favorite Star Wars book and get ready to vote in this week's new SWNN poll!





    Did you mourn when Chewbacca had a moon fall on him? Wonder what became of Rae Sloane after the Battle of Jakku? Wish that Prince Xizor would stay as far away from Princess Leia as possible? Star Wars has given us countless stories about smugglers, droids, ****-wailers, and Hutts - but now it's time to decide WHO gave you your most fond literary memories. Ranging from legacy to canon to comics, these writers have worked tirelessly to deliver fun and exciting stories to all corners of the galaxy.



    Thrawn, crazy clones, and the Solo twins - oh my! Is Timothy Zahn your go-to writer for all things Star Wars - the Hugo Awards certainly thought so! Maybe you're more into dogfighting starfighters pulling off military strikes on Imperial bases in Michael A. Stackpole and Aaron Allston's X-Wing series! Comic book reader who can't wait to explore more of Ben Kenobi's lost journals in Jason Aaron's run on the flagship title? Who can forget Claudia Gray's star crossed lovers, Thane and Ciena, in Lost Stars?



    Fan of The Clone Wars excited to read more about Ahsoka thanks to E.K. Johnston? Prequel apologist with Matthew Stover at the top of your list for elevating the tragedy of Anakin Skywalker in his novelization of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith? Are you an old school Star Wars fan who can't get enough of Brian Daley's adventures of Han Solo?



    So many books, so many authors. Vote for your favorite, start a book club, and keep reading!



    We picked 15 of some of the most prominent Star Wars authors/comic writers. Some were selected based on their individual popularity and others for the sheer amount of Star Wars content they have produced over the years. Obviously, there are so many other authors that didn't make the list. You are allowed to select up to three authors in the poll. Also, you have the option to add an author that is not on the poll.

    I, Jedi by Stackpole is one of my favorite books growing up. I remember reading Jedi Academy on the bus by Anderson, Dark Apprentice is a great title for a book( I also like Champions of the Force). I can't forget A.C. Crispin, she should be added to this list. I've read Bloodline and I'm now reading Lost Stars, I read the manga to Lost Stars First. I really think Claudia Gray is OVERRATED, ironically I'm looking forward to her book Master and Apprentice. I liked Jude Watson's Jedi Apprentice books during the prequel era. Stover's Shatterpoint is another fun read. These books enhanced the lackluster prequels I love so much. I can't forget Dark Journey by Cunningham. And most of all, Tales of anthologies hold a special place in my heart, too many authors to list here...

    So many couldn't pick one. They all produced great reads.
