Timothy Zahn was born in Chicago in 1951 and grew up in the western suburb of
Lombard. He attended Michigan State University, earning a B.S. degree in physics in 1973,
and moved on to the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. He earned a M.S. degree
there, also in physics, in 1975, and continued work toward a doctorate. Also in 1975, he began
a new hobby: writing science fiction. At first a strictly spare-time avocation, over the next
three years he gradually gave more time to it until he sold his first story in December 1978
(“Ernie,” Analog, September 1979). In 1980 he left grad school and began writing full time.
Since then he has published sixty novels, over a hundred short stories and novelettes,
and five collections of short fiction. Best known for his fourteen Star Wars novels, he is also
the author of the Quadrail series, the Cobra series, the Conquerors trilogy, the Sibyl’s War
trilogy, and the young-adult Dragonback series.
His latest books are Star Wars: Thrawn Ascendancy Book 1: Chaos Rising; Queen:
Sibyl’s War Book 3; and A Call to Vengeance, the third of the Manticore Ascendant series
with David Weber and Thomas Pope. Upcoming books include Star Wars: Thrawn
Ascendancy Book 2: Greater Good, and Star Wars: Thrawn Ascendancy Book 3: Lesser Evil.
