Author Info
Steven Brust
Stephen Brust provides further evidence of Minnesota as a hotbed of science fiction and fantasy activity, joining Neil Gaiman, Poul Anderson, Clifford D. Simak, Gordon R. Dickson, Emma Bull, Will Shetterly, and others who also live, or lived, there. Much of Brust's work has been a part of the complex Dragaeran Empire series. Beginning with JHEREG (1983), the series follows the saga of the assassin antihero after whom the series is named. Brust's Hungarian ancestry infuses the series, which is set in a kind of alternate world version of Eastern Europe where dragons and magic are commonplace. Equally influenced by the works of Alexander Dumas, Brust has also written several novels in this series based loosely on the Three Musketeers, THE PHOENIX GUARDS (1991) and FIVE HUNDRED YEARS AFTER (1994). Brust is also a musician has recorded a solo CD (which he has stated on several occasions will be his ONLY solo CD) of folk music, and several CDs with the groups, including Cats Laughing--a marginally well-known (in the sf community, anyway) neo-folk band. In 1992, he combined his interests in music and fiction with THE GYPSY, a novel co-written with Megan Lindholm that was released as a CD-ROM containing music the band Boiled in Lead, featuring another Cats Laughing member, Adam Stemple--who, himself, is the son of fantasy author Jane Yolan.

Editors Note 1 On the run for years after a devastating betrayal, short-statured former Jhereg captain, Vlad Taltos, secretly returns to his imperial city home to find that the rackets he once commanded are under the control of a mysterious cabal of women.
Editors Note 2 In which Vlad Taltos confronts the Left Hand of the Jhereg?and discovers the game has more players than he thought... Vlad Taltos, a short-statured, short-lived human in an Empire of tall, long-lived Dragaerans, has always had to keep his wits about him. Long ago, he made a place for himself as a captain of the Jhereg, the noble house that runs the rackets in the great imperial city of Adrilankha. But love, revolution, betrayal, and revenge ensued, and for years now Vlad has been a man on the run, struggling to stay a step ahead of the Jhereg who would kill him without hesitation. Now Vlad's back in Adrilankha. The rackets he used to run are now under the control of the mysterious "Left Hand of the Jhereg"?a secretive cabal of women who report to no man. His ex-wife needs his help. His old enemies aren't sure whether they want to kill him, or talk to him and then kill him. A goddess may be playing tricks with his memory. And the Great Weapon he's carrying seems to have plans of its own? Picking up directly where Issola left off, Dzur is Steven Brust at his best?swashbuckling storytelling with a wry and gritty edge.
