Stephen R. Donaldson

Stephen R. Donaldson is best known for “The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant,” beginning with Lord Foul’s Bane (1977) and ending with The Last Dark (2013). However, he has also published a five-volume science fiction epic (the Gap sequence), a two-volume high fantasy (Mordant’s Need), four crime novels (the Axbrewder/Fistoulari mysteries), and two short story collections. Remarkably, every story he has published is still in print. Of his many awards, the one of which he is most proud is his Doctor of Literature degree from the University of St. Andrews (Scotland)
