Good Wednesday to ya! Sending Happy Birthday Wishes to Fantasy Author Stephan Donaldson, May 13, heck, that's today! You may know that Stephan Donaldson is "a fantasy, science fiction and mystery novelist, most famous for his ten-novel fantasy series, "The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever" "which was published in 1977 and rapidly became a classic, establishing Donaldson as one of the most important figures in modern fantasy. It was named Best Novel of the Year by the British Fantasy Society, and earned the author, the John W. Campbell Award as best new writer. In 1980, his success continued with the publication of the first volume in his equally popular second trilogy, 'The Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant'.
"His work is characterized by psychological complexity, conceptual abstractness, moral bleakness, and the use of an arcane vocabulary, and has attracted critical praise for its "imagination, vivid characterizations, and fast pace".
His other bestselling work includes his first collection of short stories, 'Daughter of Regals', which has recently been reissued, and the two books in the bestselling Mordant's Need series, 'The Mirror of Her Dreams' and 'A Man Rides Through'.
His most recent work is the acclaimed Gap series, an epic five-volume science-fiction adventure that begins in 'The Real Story' and continues in 'Forbidden Knowledge', 'A Dark and Hungry God Arises', 'Chaos and Order' and, most recently, 'This Day All Gods Die', the latest in a long line of 'Sunday Times' top-ten bestsellers."
"He earned his bachelor's degree from The College of Wooster and a Master's degree from Kent State University. He currently resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico." -wikipedia and Fantastic Fiction
