Matthew Stover is perhaps best known for his four Star Wars novels, Star Wars: The New Jedi Order: Traitor; Star Wars: Shatterpoint; Star Wars: Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor; and the novelization of the movie Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith. He has also written several fantasy novels, including Iron Dawn and Jericho Moon, and four science fiction/fantasy stories featuring a hero named Caine.
"Stover has conjured up a future out of the darkest dreams of
Philip K. Dick. . . . The wildest sword and sorcery adventuring
since Robert E. Howard's mighty Cimmerian laid down his sword."
-Christopher Rowley, author of the Bazil Broketail series, on Heroes Die
"Blends science, magic, and martial arts into an action-packed tale of adventure and heroism."
