Returning triumphantly to the brilliantly evoked near-Renaissance world of A Brightness Long Ago and Children of Earth and Sky, international bestselling author Guy Gavriel Kay tells a story of vengeance, power, and love.
When asked about his predilection towards fantastic historical fiction, Guy Gavriel Kay explains that the genre “takes incidents out of a very specific time and place and opens up possibilities for the writer — and the reader — to consider the themes, the elements of a story, as applying to a wide range of times and places… And, paradoxically… it might actually be seen to apply more to a reader’s own life.”
Guy Gavriel Kay’s titles include Tigana, The Lions of Al-Rassan, and Ysabel, which won the International Goliardos Prize and the World Fantasy Award in 2008. In 2014, Kay was named to the Order of Canada. His work has been translated into more than 25 languages.
His latest work, All the Seas of the World, is a page-turning drama that offers reflections on memory, fate, and the random events that can shape our lives. The Toronto Star’s Robert J. Wiersema describes is as “a thrilling and exciting reading experience, and one which will more than satisfy fans of Kay’s fiction.”
