Steven Erikson’s Bio from the Malazan Empire website –
He is an anthropologist and archaeologist by training and a graduate of the acclaimed Iowa Writer’s Workshop. His debut fantasy novel, Gardens of the Moon, marked the opening chapter in the epic Malazan Book of the Fallen sequence, which has been hailed as one of the most significant works of fantasy of this millennium.
BACK COVER SUMMARY:
The Malazan Empire simmers with discontent, bled dry by interminable warfare, bitter infighting and bloody confrontations with ancient and implacable sorcerers. Even the imperial legions, long inured to the bloodshed, yearn for some respite. Yet Empress Laseen's rule remains absolute, enforced by her dread Claw assassins.
For Sergeant Whiskeyjack and his squad of Bridgeburners, and for Tattersail, their lone surviving mage, the aftermath of the siege of Pale should have been a time to mourn the many dead. But Darujhistan, last of the Free Cities, yet holds out. It is to this ancient citadel that Laseen turns her predatory gaze.
However, the Empire is not alone in this great game. Sinister, shadowbound forces are gathering as the gods themselves prepare to play their hand . . .
Conceived and written on a panoramic scale, Gardens of the Moon is epic fantasy of the highest order--an enthralling adventure by an outstanding voice.
