Guy Gavriel Kay

Guy Gavriel Kay was born in Weyburn, Saskatchewan, on 7 November 1954 to Samuel Kay, a surgeon, and Sybil (Birstein) Kay. He has two brothers Jeffrey and Rex, who are, respectively, a lawyer and a psychiatrist. Kay himself trained to be a lawyer, earning his LL.B. from the University of Toronto after his B.A. in philosophy from Manitoba. However, he now earns his living as a novelist. Kay currently lives in Toronto with his wife Laura and their two sons. Kay’s love of literature came early since his parents, both readers, read to their son regularly. Kay’s introduction to fantasy came through reading Greek myths, fairy tales, and later, authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien, E.R. Eddison, Lord Dunsany, and Fritz Leiber. As an adult, he is an omnivorous reader, consuming large amounts of non-fiction as well as fiction. A few of the fiction writers Kay particularly respects are Gabriel García Márquez, Milan Kundera, Thomas Flanagan, Shirley Hazzard, Cormac McCarthy, as well as the earlier works of Dorothy Dunnett, Updike’s ‘Rabbit’ novels, and George Garrett’s Elizabethan historical fiction. A critical development in Kay’s career as a writer came from his acquaintence with Christopher Tolkien, J.R.R. Tolkien’s son, when Kay was a student of philosophy at the University of Manitoba. When Christopher Tolkien was named literary executor after his father died, he invited Kay to Oxford to assist him in editing Tolkien’s fragmentary and uncompleted ‘The Silmarillion’. Kay accepted; as he comments, ‘Who in their right mind would NOT have been interested in the project?’ Kay worked on ‘The Silmarillion’ for a year, from 1974-1975. The year that Kay spent working on the Tolkien project reinforced his interest in writing, but at the same time he became aware that it was not a profession to be...

Katharine Kerr

Katharine Kerr was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1944 to a family which considered itself British-in-exile far more than American. In 1962, she moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, and has lived there ever since. After leaving Stanford University she worked in a number of low-paying jobs while she read extensively in the fields of classical archaeology and literature, medieval and Dark Ages history, and modern fiction. Eventually she met up with an old friend from school, Howard Kerr, who loved cats, books and baseball as much as she did; they were married in 1973. In 1979 a friend gave Katherine her first fantasy role-playing game. She became so intrigued with gaming and with the fantasy field that she began writing articles for gaming magazines, and for some time was a contributing editor to ‘Dragon’ magazine, as well as devising gaming modules. Now, however, she is devoting herself exclusively to fiction, for the simple reason that there are only twenty-four hours in a...
