Drew Karpyshyn

Drew Karpyshyn has a rich legacy as both an author and a video game developer. One of the main creative leaders of the Canadian game company BioWare, Karpyshyn wrote much of the dialog for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic as well as Jade Empire. He then spearheaded his own literary and gaming universe: Mass Effect. The games are complex cosmic adventures centered on fighting a ill-intentioned race of mechanical beings known as Reapers. Karpyshyn's novels about the Mass Effect universe are worth reading even if you're not a gamer, as they feature gripping story lines and thoughtful insights about what contemporary technology may evolve into one day.
