Rides a Dread Legion

Серия: "The International Bestseller"

A lost race of elves, the taredhel or 'people of the stars', have found a way across the universe to reach Midkemia. On their current home world, these elves are hard pressed by a ravaging demon horde, and what was once a huge empire has been reduced to a handful of survivors. The cornerstone of taredhel lore is the tale of their lost origins in the world they call simply "Home", a place lost in the mists of time. Now they are convinced that Midkemia is that place, and they are coming to reclaim it. Ruthless and arrogant, the taredhel intend to let nothing stand in their way; but before long, Pug and the Conclave realise that it's not necessarily the elves, but the demon horde pursuing them where the true danger lies. And hanging over Pug always is the prophecy that he will be doomed to watch everyone he loves die before him...

Biography

Raymond E. Feist was born in 1945 in Los Angeles, and was raised in Southern California. He was born with the surname Gonzales, but was subsequently adopted by Felix E. Feist when his mother remarried. He graduated with a B.A. in Communication Arts with Honors in 1977 from the University of California at San Diego. During that year Feist had some ideas for a novel about a boy who would be a magician. He wrote the novel two years later, and it was published in 1982 by Doubleday. Feist currently lives in San Diego with his children, where he collects fine wine, DVDs, and books on a variety of topics of personal interest: wine, biographies, history, and, especially, the history of American Professional Football.cite web|url=http://www.crydee.com/raymond-feist/biography|title= Biography|accessdate=2008-06-14|publisher=Crydee.com]

Works

The Riftwar Cycle

The overwhelming majority of Feist's works are part of The Riftwar Cycle, a fictional universe featuring the worlds of Midkemia and Kelewan.cite web|url=http://www.scifan.com/writers/ff/FeistRaymond.asp|title=Writer: Raymond E. Feist (1945 - , United States)|accessdate=2008-06-14|publisher=www.scifan.com] Human magicians on the two planets are able to create "rifts" through dimensionless space that can connect planets in different solar systems. Other creatures are able to move through this dimensionless space as well. The novels and short stories of The Riftwar Cycle record the adventures of the people on the various worlds.

"Midkemia" was originally created as an alternative to the Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) role-playing game. When Feist studied at the University of California, San Diego, he and his friends created a new role-playing game based on the world of Midkemia. They called themselves the "Thursday Nighters", because they played the Midkemia role-playing game every Thursday evening. After some time, when the group changed and began meeting on Fridays, they became known as the "Friday Nighters". The original group have since formed a company called Midkemia Press, which has continued publishing campaigns set in Midkemia.cite web|url=http://www.writerswrite.com/journal/mar00/feist.htm|title=A Conversation With Raymond Feist|accessdate=2008-06-14|author=Claire E.

Other works

Feist has published one non-Riftwar novel, Faerie Tale, a horror story set in the state of New York. He has also published several short stories in various anthologies.
