Curtis Saxton is the author of two books in the Incredible Cross Sections series. He served as a named consultant on two other Star Wars technical reference books, and provided technical input on others.
He began his Star Wars technical writing career with the unofficial Star Wars Technical Commentaries, a set of detailed documents exploring the nature and limits of the technology of Star Wars. The first Commentaries went online in February 1995.
The fan terms Saxtonite and Saxtonism refer, respectively, to Saxton supporters and his methodology. As some of his conclusions in the Star Wars Technical Commentaries, especially regarding firepower, are controversial, and some fans consider these terms pejorative.[source?]
