Author: Star Wars, Thrawn
Timothy Zahn has published fifty-six novels, over a hundred short stories and novelettes, and five collections of short fiction in his career. Best known for his twelve Star Wars novels, he is also the author of the Quadrail series, the Cobra series, the Conquerors Trilogy, and the young-adult Dragonback series.
Zahn is responsible for creating numerous characters beloved in the Star Wars Universe including Mara Jade, Talon Karrde, Noghri, and Grand Admiral Thrawn.
Grand Admiral Thrawn instantly became a fan favorite in the Star Wars Universe and one of the most significant antagonists and villians from the Star Wars Expanded Universe. The Thrawn trilogy sparked life in the Star Wars franchise in the early 90’s. All three Thrawn trilogy novels made the New York Times Best Seller List. Zahn later followed up with two more Thrawn novels.
After the Disney declaration in 2014 to move all of these novels to non-canon, Thrawn appeared in Star Wars Rebels and brought him right back into the Star Wars canon. Soon after, Timothy Zahn was set to write a new trilogy for the character. The first two novels, Thrawn and Thrawn: Alliances, became New York Times Best Sellers in 2017 and 2018 respectively. His final novel, Thrawn: Treason, is set for a July 2019 release.
