Stover by far. Zahn is good, but Stover has an edge over him

Stackpole. He's not necessarily the world's most talented writer, but of all EU books, his X-wing books and I, Jedi were the ones I enjoyed most.

His other stuff is pretty good too. Talion: Revanent (sp?) is uber spiffy, Once a Hero is okay, and A Hero Born is alright....just a tad on the uber slow side.

I'm limited here, but I'll go with Stover. I loved the allegory, tone, dark humor, verbal irony, etc. of Traitor.

Stover, although Allston and Stackpole are both close seconds.

Unknown, if you liked Traitor and Shatterpoint you'd probably like Heroes Die and Blade of Tyshalle. Both are by Stover and are awesome works. They're very graphic reads also. But awesome books. Both of them are on the top shelf of my non-SW bookcase

I haven't read Shatterpoint, either.

Oh, and I'd still love to see what would happen should Stephen King write a SW book.

Yeah, might be interesting. I think I'll read his Dark Tower novels when my mum has finished with them. And he's finished writing them, of course, lol.

Stackpole is just awesome. Aside from his awesome EU work, his fantasy is some of the best I've read, especially Talion: Revenant and the DragonCrown War Cycle.

I've never read any EU books, so I voted "Other" just to see the results.

I voted for Timothy Zhan, I've only read one of his SW novels, and it was great.

i went ahead and voted for Stover because of Shatterpoint (Mace rules!), but Tim Zahn, Allston, and Stackpole are all awesome as well
