Raymond E. Feist (full name Raymond Elias Feist, though also known as Ray Feist), is a Southern Californian by birth and a San Diegan by choice. He was educated at the University of California, San Diego, where he received his B.A. in Communication Arts with Honors in 1977.
A New York Times, and Times of London Best-seller, he is the author of Magician, Silverthorn, and A Darkness at Sethanon, the three novels comprising The Riftwar Saga, the first series in the Arc that has become known as the Riftwar Cycle.

Subsequently he wrote the Serpentwar Saga, and The Riftwar Legacy series, which is based in part on the hugely successful computer games set in his universe, Betrayal at Krondor and Return to Krondor.
In more recent collaborations, we saw the arrival of the Legends of the Riftwar, which included, Honoured Enemy with William Forstchen, Murder in LaMut with Joel Rosenberg, and Jimmy the Hand with Steve M. Stirling.
Following a move to the Eastern Realms, he has introduced us to Talon of the Silverhawk and the Conclave of the Shadows. The subsequent trilogy, the Darkwar Saga comprising Flight of the Nighthawks, Into a Dark Realm, and Wrath of a Mad God.
His last book of The Chaoswar Sage and the overall Riftwar Cycle, Magician’s End we see a conclusion to the events spanning centuries in story time, or over 30 years real time.
A new adventure, in a new, world will soon be here. King of Ashes, the first book in the new series Firemane, is due for release in early April 2018.
Raymond’s hobbies include collecting movies on DVD, fine wine, books on the history of Professional Football, and the works of American Illustrators.
