Memories of Ice: A Tale of the Malazan Book of the Fallen

A terrifying force has emerged from the ravaged continent of Genabackis. Like a tide of corrupted blood, the Pannion Domin seethes across the land, devouring all who fail to heed the word of its prophet, the Pannion Seer. In its path stands an uneasy alliance: Dujek Onearm's Host and Whiskeyjack's veteran Bridgeburners alongside old adversaries - the warlord Caladan Brood, Anomander Rake and his Tiste Andii. Outnumbered and mistrustful, they must get word to potential allies, including the Grey Swords, a mercenary brotherhood sworn to defend the besieged city of Capustan at all costs. But more ancient clans are gathering. In answer to some primal summons, the T'lan Imass have risen. For something malign threatens this world: the Warrens are poisoned and rumours abound of a god unchained and intent on revenge...

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.
