"When I write a book, I put everything I have into it; so the more I have, the more the books become. Some people get freaked out by them: mostly the people who believe, mistakenly, that fantasy is about escaping reality. To them I say: If you have a problem with reality, you should be spending more time dealing with your life, and less time reading popcorn fantasy."
―Matthew Stover[src]

Matthew Woodring Stover is an author of several Star Wars novels, including The New Jedi Order: Traitor, Shatterpoint, Revenge of the Sith novelization and Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor, as well as the short stories Equipment and The Tenebrous Way. He lives outside of Chicago.

His first three Star Wars novels are much more violent and morally gray than most other Star Wars works, a fact that has earned him both avid fans and relentless detractors. His non-Star Wars novels have garnered a smaller but loyal audience, though only his two most recent novels, retroactively dubbed as part of the Acts of Caine cycle, are still in print. Stover lists some of his prime fantastic influences as Roger Zelazny, Stephen R. Donaldson, and Fritz Leiber. His dedication in Blade of Tyshalle cites other late "friends" including Leo Tolstoy and Friedrich Nietzsche.
