- "Wookieepedia is a fabulous resource. Love it and use it a lot. But it's always a starting pt for further verification, not an endpoint."
- ―Jason Fry
Jason C. Fry is the author of numerous Star Wars stories and reference books. He has written for Wizards of the Coast and Star Wars Insider. He also frequents the forums of TheForce.net. He has a special interest in Star Wars astrography and was a co-author of The Essential Atlas with Daniel Wallace. The likenesses of Fry and Wallace were even used in one image of hyperspace scouts in the Atlas.
Although he has primarily written Star Wars reference books and articles, Fry has also expanded into the realm of fiction, having authored such works as the short story "Deader than a Triton Moon" and the young-readers' novel The Clone Wars: Darth Maul: Shadow Conspiracy. His first original novel, titled The Jupiter Pirates: Hunt for the Hydra, was released by HarperCollins Publishing on December 23, 2013.
In 2017, Fry was tapped to write the adult novelization of the film Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi. Fry also authored the associated The Last Jedi titles Bomber Command and Incredible Cross-Sections. Fry has stated that although he doesn't want to write a novelization for the 2019 film Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker, he would like to help whoever ends up being hired to write it.
