Timothy Zahn (September 1, 1951-) is a ScienceFiction, {{Fantasy}} and SpaceOpera author, best known for writing Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy, one of the founding contributions to the old Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse (now Franchise/StarWarsLegends). Among fans, he's often considered to be among the best, if not ''the'' best, of the ''Star Wars'' authors. There are a number of factors involved in that, including his respect for Imperial characters as multidimensional beings, his ability to write immensely complicated and detailed plots, the fact that he reads and uses the other books in the EU, and his habit of foreshadowing things that will be revisited years later in different books.

In the final years of the Legends canon, a lot of his characters were killed off unceremoniously. Reputedly, he knows that although he created them he doesn't have a say in how they die, but he's still a bit annoyed that none of the authors doing so bothered contacting him. However, with Disney's acquisition of the ''Star Wars'' franchise and the development of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'', his most iconic character Grand Admiral Thrawn [[SchrodingersCanon is being indicted into the "official" canon,]] with Zahn himself not only [[ApprovalOfGod approving of his character's true-to-form interpretation]] but ''also'' writing a new Thrawn novel to be released in April 2017. One wonders how many more of Timothy Zahn's concepts will be introduced alongside Thrawn, but it would be safe to leave that with those who indulge in WildMassGuessing.
