House of Chains

In Northern Genabackis, just before the events recounted in GARDENS OF THE MOON, a raiding party of savage tribal warriors descends from the mountains into the southern flat lands. Their intention is to wreak havoc among the despised lowlanders, but for the one named Karsa Orlong it marks the beginning of what will prove an extraordinary destiny. Some years later, it is the aftermath of the Chain of Dogs. Coltaine, revered commander of the Malazan 7th Army is dead. And now Tavore, elder sister of Ganoes Paran and Adjunct to the Empress, has arrived in the last remaining Malazan stronghold of the Seven Cities to take charge. Untested and new to command, she must hone a small army of twelve thousand soldiers, mostly raw recruits, into a viable fighting force and lead them into battle against the massed hordes of Sha'ik's Whirlwind. Her only hope lies in resurrecting the shattered faith of the few remaining survivors from Coltaine's legendary march, veterans one and all. In...

Steven Erikson (born October 7, 1959) is the pseudonym of Steve Rune Lundin, a Canadian novelist, who was educated and trained as both an archaeologist and anthropologist. His best-known work is the on-going series, the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

Biography

Steven Erikson was born in Toronto, Canada, grew up in Winnipeg, lived in the UK with his wife and son, and has since returned to Canada. He is an anthropologist and archaeologist by training [http://us.macmillan.com/author/stevenerikson Steven Erikson's page at macmillan.com] ] and is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop.

Works

His first fantasy novel, "Gardens of the Moon" (1999), constitutes the first of ten projected volumes of the "Malazan Book of the Fallen". His style of writing tends towards complex plots with multiple point-of-view characters. The Malazan world was devised by Steven Erikson and Ian Cameron Esslemont, initially as a setting for a role-playing game. "Gardens of the Moon" began as a movie script but evolved into a novel, which Erikson completed in 1991-92 but failed to sell.

In the late 1990s, Bantam UK bought "Gardens of the Moon" and requested that Erikson write additional books in the same series. Using the history of the world created by himself and Esslemont as a guide, he mapped out the series of ten novels. The rights to the "Malazan Book of the Fallen" were sold for approximately £500,000, among the "largest fees ever paid for a fantasy series" [Interview with SFX magazine, issue #99, Christmas 2002.] .

Erikson has stated explicitly that he enjoys playing with and overturning the conventions of fantasy, presenting characters that violate the stereotypes associated with their roles, [http://fantasyhotlist.blogspot.com/2006/01/new-steven-erikson-interview.html Fantasy hotlist interview with Steven Erikson] ] an obvious point being the insightful and murderous barbarian Karsa Orlong. He deliberately began the Malazan Book of the Fallen series in the midst of an ongoing story rather than beginning with a more conventional opening.
