drewkarpyshynSciFi News did an interview with Star Wars author Drew Karpyshyn. The interview covers Drew’s work in both the gaming and publishing industry, touching on some broad topics here and there.

You were successful at Stars Wars material both in gaming and in books. Did at first you feel like you were one of the chosen few who was lucky enough to enter the huge empire that makes up Star Wars? Also did you ever get the chance to meet George Lucas?

Drew Karpyshyn: Working with the Star Wars franchise is an honor, and I realized right from the start how lucky I was to be given the opportunity. There are a lot of folks out there who want to write for Star Wars, so you need some pretty strong credentials to get in. Luckily for me, my work on the KOTOR video game and my early Forgotten Realms novels was enough to convince the powers-that-be to give me a shot. But even though I’ve now written five Star Wars novels, I still haven’t had the chance to meet George Lucas himself.
