Focus on... Steven Erikson

Publié le par Colloque Antiquité-SFFF




Known by his fans as Steven Erikson, Steve Rune Lundin (1959) is a talented writer and the creator of the very popular Malazan Book of the Fallen novels and novellas. His first work Gardens of the Moon (1999) was acclaimed for its "combination of originality and intelligent, strong and exciting storytelling". It can be said with certainty that he belongs to the canon of fantasy writers and joins the ranks of much respected authors like Robin Hobb and George R.R. Martin. He surmounts the classical themes of the fantasy genre by creating complex characters who do not simply belong to the categories of ‘goodies’ and ‘badies’. Steven Erikson has also been well received for ‘non-malazan’ books as we can see with stories such as Revolvo or for works written as ‘Steven Lundin’ like When she’s gone.  Before he became a writer Erikson studied anthropology, archaeology and graduated at the Iowo Writer’s Workshop. His studies served him well later on as a source of inspiration for his writing career.
