Guy Gavriel Kay

Guy Gavriel Kay

Guy Gavriel Kay (born 1954, Canada) is the internationally bestselling author of twelve books. He has been awarded the International Goliardos Prize for his work in the literature of the fantastic, is a two-time winner of the Aurora Award, and has been nominated five times for the World Fantasy Award. His works have been translated into 22 languages. He was retained by J.R.R. Tolkien's estate to work with Christopher Tolkien in the reconstruction of the posthumously published Tolkien work, The Silmarillion.

After completing the Fionavar Tapestry trilogy, which showed the influence of a variety of Celtic and Norse myths, Guy Gavriel Kay began writing epic historical fantasies. Although magic is generally present to some extent and the books do take place on a variety of fantasy worlds, these later novels tend to be inspired by actual historical events.
