In fantasy book fandom, few authors have a reputation amongst hardcore fans as fearsome as the one that rests upon the shoulders of Steven Erikson , co-author of the Malazan Book of the Fallen series. The Canadian writer, whose real name is Steve Rune Lundin, wields some fearsome credentials. He originally trained as both an archaeologist and anthropologist, and he brings these skills to his novel-writing. His books are billed simultaneously as some of the most challenging and gritty works of fantasy fiction available, but also some of the best, once fans get past the initial reading barriers. It’s common for fantasy fans to recommend Erikson’s work to each other upon learning that a fellow fan has recently finished reading all of another major author’s work – say, Robert Jordan , George R. R.
A review by Neil Walsh Gardens of the Moon is currently available from Bantam in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Steve Erikson has also recently signed on with a German publisher. North Americans, however, will have to content themselves with ordering from abroad -- until some cunning publisher over that way gets a whiff of Erikson's talent.

The series was completed with the publication of The Crippled God in February 2011. Erikson's series is complex with a wide scope, and presents the narratives of a large cast of characters. [ 1 ] [ 2 ] [ 2 ] [ 3 ] [ 4 ] [ 5 ] Erikson's plotting presents a complicated series of events in the world upon which the Malazan Empire is located. Each of the first five novels is relatively self-contained, in that it resolves its respective primary conflict; but many underlying characters and events are interwoven throughout the works of the series, binding it together.
