Guy Gavriel Kay
Guy Gavriel Kay was born and raised in Canada. He lives in Toronto, although much of his writing has been done while living in Europe. Between 1984 and 1987, the three books that make up The Fionavar Tapestry (The Summer Tree, The Wandering Fire and The Darkest Road) were published in the UK, USA and Canada, and translated into eight languages. The books won numerous awards and accolades, including Canada's Casper Award for Best Novel in the fantasy genre in 1986 and Kay's nomination for the John W. Campbell Award as best new writer in the genre. Prior to writing this epic trilogy, Kay was retained by the Estate of J. R. R. Tolkien at Oxford in 1974-5 to assist Christopher Tolkien in the editorial construction of the unfinished, posthumously published, The Silmarillion. He studied law and was called to the Bar in 1982, but decided not to practise. In addition to writing books he serves as principal writer and Associate Producer for CBC Radio's international award-winning series, 'The Scales of Justice', which was first broadcast in 1983.
