A brand new novella from an acknowledged master of fantasy, a publishing event.
From the international bestselling author of The Chronicles ofThomas Covenant comes an extensive and all original new fantasy novella.
Augur's Gambit is a tight and action-filled novella of more than 40,000 words. A novella with all the rich word-building and acute characterisation that readers have come to expect from the man who re-invigorated the whole genre in the 1980s and went on to write one of Fantasy's landmark series.
Revelling in the sense of freedom that comes from writing a new creation after the massive, controlled effort of the ten book epic of the Chronicles this is a novella that will both delight existing fans and win new readers for Donaldson's uniquely rich and intelligent fantasies.
Stephen Donaldson spent 13 years in India, where his father was a medical missionary and orthopaedic surgeon; the idea for Thomas Covenant grew out of his father's work with lepers. The first trilogy won him the British Fantasy and John W. Campbell Awards; he won the World Fantasy Award for his collection REAVE THE JUST AND OTHER TALES. As well as fantasy and science fiction, he has also written a number of crime novels. He lives with his family in New Mexico.
