Archaeologist and anthropologist Steven Erikson is the author of the landmark, multi-volume epic fantasy, ‘The Malazan Book of the Fallen’, which has been hailed ‘a masterwork of the imagination’. The first novel in this astonishing ten-book series, Gardens of the Moon, was shortlisted for the World Fantasy Award. He has also written a number of novellas set in the same world. Forge of Darkness begins the Kharkanas Trilogy – a series which takes readers back to the origins of the Malazan world – and Fall of Light continues this epic tale. A lifelong science fiction reader, he has also written fiction affectionately parodying a long-running SF TV series and, most recently, a novel of first contact, Rejoice! Steven Erikson lives in Victoria, Canada.
Set in the awe-inspiring world of the Malazan Empire, three tales of the enigmatic and ever-so-slightly evil necromancers Bauchelain and Korbal Broach collected together in a single, readily available volume.
The necromancers Bauchelain and Korbal Broach – scourges of civilization, raisers of the dead, reapers of the souls of the living, devourers of hope, betrayers of faith, slayers of the innocent and modest personifications of evil – have a lot to answer for and answer they will, but first they must lie, murder and cheat their way through three more escapades in some of the more deprived fringes and impoverished communities of the Malazan Empire. Much to the shame of their long-suffering general factotum, Emancipoor Reese…
Here then – for readers’ delectation and entertainment – are those escapades, namely the novellas The Crack’d Pot Trail, The Wurms of Blearmouth and The Fiends of Nightmaria . . .
