Bill Smith -- BillSmithBooks.com or OutlawGalaxy.com -- is the author of the Outlaw Galaxy series of space adventure stories, as well as the author of Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels (Del Rey Books), Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology (Del Rey Books) and Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game, Second Edition (West End Games). He edited or contributed to dozens of Star Wars RPG products.
He and his family live in the foothills of New York's Adirondack Mountains. When not dreaming up stories of thrilling space fantasy, he can often be found at the local stock car tracks watching cars go around in a circle real fast. He considers himself an honorary Canadian and is enamored of slaw dogs, poutine, pretty paper money, progressive politics and Rush (the Greatest Band that ever has been and ever will be, emphatically NOT the blowhard political propagandist).
