Star Wars has given fans many books to read over the years, and for those willing delve into the old Legends titles, there’s a lot to enjoy. Today we’re kicking off a new series highlighting the authors of those old Legends novels and sharing some trivia you might enjoy. To get things started, we present Aaron Allston.

Biography

Aaron Allston was born in Corsicana, Texas on December 8, 1960. By 1982, he was an editor of the magazine Space Gamer, and the next year he worked as a freelance game designer, author of the supplement Autoduel Champions, and helped launch the magazine Fantasy Gamer. He wrote his first novel in 1988 called Web of Danger which was packaged as a two for one book along with Acolytes of Darkness by Flint Dille and David Marconi. It would take 10 more years before readers would see his first Star Wars novel, Wraith Squadron, which kicked off a long relationship with the franchise. From 1998 to 2012, Allston graced fans with thirteen Star Wars novels and two short stories. Sadly, Allston passed away in 2014 from heart failure. I met Aaron at Star Wars Celebration VI back in 2012 in Orlando, Florida, one of my favorite Celebrations because of that. It’s a memory I’ll cherish. While Aaron may be gone from the world, his books live on. Continue Reading Author Holocron Series: Aaron Allston…
