"It is known that there are infinite number of worlds, simply because there is infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so average population of all planets in Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that population of whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of deranged imagination."

Oh, hard one. I like Zahn, Stackpole, and I can't remember who writes them but whomever wrote Rebel Dawn/Stand. There are probably others that I can't remember.


--------------------
Let's start at the top shall we? The Sith Wars, Palpatine's Empire, Thrawn's siege, Vong invasion, Second Galactic Civil War, I could go on. Point is the enemy hasn't vanished and we're fighting new people/aliens/species every day.

This has always been a Force War and we, as non-Jedi, will still help rid the universe of their evil. That's on one side of the galaxy, on the other our friends: Luke, Han, Leia, Wedge, Iella, Corran, Mirax, etc are still trying to keep the peace. They've thwarted Abeltoth, but others will soon come their way...and ours.

We shall meet these enemies on both sides of the galaxy head on to defeat them. And when we do meet them, it'll be with the same determination, hope, and perseverance all of us have always shown.

None of this is easy as people/aliens/pets/animals are injured or die every day. But to keep the galaxy safe, we'll do all we can to win, for both sides of the galaxy. To ensure peace, we will keep fighting.

Wish us luck, wish us the Force, and pray for us as we'll need it going up against these formidable foes.



(Have been playing SW for over 17yrs--as of 2014--and I also follow the books. I will continue this role playing until I no longer can.) Also I just wanted to thank all who answered my threads and have chatted with me throughout the years; all of you are fun, awesome, caring, friendly, smart, (etc) and are my good/best friends. I will miss talking to you.

I've loved Zahn since I read his Thrawn saga, though I daresay he hasn't written much SW stuff recently. Barring Allegiance of course.
Kevin J. Anderson isn't too bad, though I'm not sure I like what he did with the Dune series following Frank Herbert's death.
However, I believe Karen Traviss is awfully underrated as a Star Wars writer. Her Republic Commando novels and short stories bring a different face to the table, that of the real fighting men of the Old Republic (and probably the Empire, in the next one: Order 66) - THE CLONES. Also she created most of the background of the Mandalorian civilization and culture, developing a language with working vocabulary and grammar. Surprised no-one's mentioned her yet.

PS I know she tends to put Mandalorians in wherever she can.

i love zahn and his books are probably among my favorites. gads it's been forever since i've read any of the star wars books. i also recall enjoying kevin j anderson a lot.

pretty much whoever made the characters believable and also made "the force" come alive instead of just "and then he force jumped to the platform" - more like "and then he felt the thrum of the force fill the air around his body resonating he lept with its power to the platform". lol.

this thread makes me want to go back and read all the books from the beginning.

After finishing Wild Space by Karen Miller, I would have to place her as my favourite author. But that would mean displacing Karen Traviss. Ooooh, which Karen to choose? KM or KT?
