Sleight of Hand

Posted on Updated on

My first work of non-fiction Sleight of Hand: Chaos, Authorship & Humanity is due to be published this coming Friday, July 25th. It is a work of literary criticism about Steven Erikson’s Malazan Book of the Fallen.

The cover and blurb are below.

The book is available for pre-order on Smashwords now and will be available on other platforms from Friday.

Steven Erikson’s Malazan Book of the Fallen represents a landmark in fantasy literature. The ten-volume series is a post-modern journey through the mind and soul of the characters and the author himself.
The series is replete with thematic and symbolic explorations and genre tropes. Sleight of Hand explores a selection of the central themes appearing in the series, and is one of the first works to analyse those themes across the entire Malazan Book of the Fallen.
In exploring the journey of the author and his characters, Sleight of Hand becomes an exploration of the journey of a reader and anybody with a tale to tell, as they seek their humanity.
