“Timothy Zahn is an American sci-fi writer. He attended Michigan State University, graduating with a BS degree in Physics in 1973. He continued his studies at the University of Illinois and earned an M.Sc. in Physics in 1975. While preparing for a doctorate in physics, his supervisor became ill, and Zahn was never able to finish. In 1975, he began writing science fiction as a hobby, and became a professional writer.

He also wrote the popular “Conquerors Trilogy” (Conquerors’ trilogy, 1994-1996) about a war between humans and an alien species that has seemingly indestructible spaceships and may remain in the form of spirit after death. He also wrote short stories and won a Hugo Award in 1984 for his new Cascade Point. He lives in Oregon with his wife, Anna.”

• Description : The bravest soldiers. The toughest warriors. The ultimate survivors. Among the stars and across the vast expanses of space, the Galactic Civil War rages. On the battlefields of multiple worlds in the Mid Rim, legions of ruthless stormtroopers—bent on crushing resistance to the Empire wherever it arises—are waging close and brutal combat against an armada of freedom fighters. In the streets and alleys of ravaged cities, the front-line forces of the Rebel Alliance are taking the fight to the enemy, pushing deeper into Imperial territory and grappling with the savage flesh-and-blood realities of war on the ground. Leading the charge are the soldiers—men and women, human and nonhuman—of the Sixty-First Mobile Infantry, better known as Twilight Company. Hard-bitten, war-weary, and ferociously loyal to one another, the members of this renegade outfit doggedly survive where others perish, and defiance is their most powerful weapon against the deadliest odds. When orders come down for the rebels to fall back in the face of superior opposition numbers and firepower, Twilight reluctantly complies. Then an unlikely ally radically changes the strategic equation—and gives the Alliance’s hardest-fighting warriors a crucial chance to turn retreat into resurgence. Orders or not, alone and outgunned but unbowed, Twilight Company locks, loads, and prepares to make its boldest maneuver—trading down-and-dirty battle in the trenches for a game-changing strike at the ultimate target: the very heart of the Empire’s military machine.
