About the Author

Gemmell with Snaga

David Gemmell (1948-2006) was a bestselling British fantasy author. A former journalist and newspaper editor from west London, Gemmell published his debut novel, Legend, in 1984. The work quickly became a classic, and he went on to write over thirty novels. Receiving both commercial and critical acclaim, Gemmell's novels characteristically feature morally grey heroes, fast-paced action sequences and strong themes of honour, courage and redemption. He is widely regarded as one of the finest writers of heroic fantasy. Gemmell died of coronary artery disease while working on Fall of Kings in his home near Hastings in 2006. The novel was completed by his wife Stella Gemmell and published posthumously. Read more...
