Margaret Weis began her collaboration with Tracy Hickman on the Dragonlance(R) series more than twenty years ago when she was an editor for TSR, Inc. Two decades later she is the author of numerous Dragonlance novels, the four-volume galactic fantasy Star of the Guardian, and co-author with Don Perrin of The Doom Brigade, Draconian Measures, Knights of the Black Earth, Robot Blues, and Hung Out. She and Perrin are also the authors of Brothers in Arms, the sequel to Weis' best-selling novel The Soulforge. In 1983, when Tracy Hickman was driving across country to start a new job at TSR, Inc. as a game designer, he conceived of a world in which dragons would play a big part. That world became the Dragonlance campaign setting and helped launch Hickman's career as a major voice in fantasy fiction. He has also written, in collaboration with Margaret Weis, the Darksword series and the Death Gate Cycle, is the designer of the game setting Starshield, and is the author of The Immortals. In his spare time -- not that he has much -- he lives in Utah with his wife, two daughters, and two sons.
