Michael A. Stackpole is still an award-winning game designer, computer game designer and writer who is uncomfortable about this third-person bio thing. Not much has changed since the last bio, actually, except there is a third dog in the house: Saint, the great-grandson of Ruthless and the great-grandnephew of Ember, the other two dogs living here. Growing up in Vermont, Mike only ever had one dog at a time in the house, but if all three of these Cardigan Welsh Corgis were piled into one dog, they would equal the Labrador with which he grew up. Mike still plays soccer on weekends and is on a team with players who do all sorts of things to make him look really good. He's still riding his mountain bike--the more he rides it, the less of a mountain he becomes. By the time you're reading this, he should have finished his final X-wing book. He'll also have finished scripting bunches of the X-wing Rogue Squadron comic from Dark Horse, which he finds to be a lot of fun. And, after all, if you can't have fun writing, there is absolutely no reason to do it--it's too much hard work otherwise. His next big project is an epic fantasy series for Bantam called the Dragoncrown War and he's really looking forward to it. From the Paperback edition.
