Author Info
Stephen R. Donaldson
Soon after his birth, Stephen R. Donaldson moved with his parents--a medical missionary and a prosthetist--from Cleveland, Ohio to India, where his father worked extensively with lepers. Returning to the U.S. in 1963, Donaldson attended the College of Wooster, where he received a B.A. in 1968, followed by an M.A. from Kent State University in 1971. Shortly thereafter, he began work on THE CHRONICLES OF THOMAS COVENANT. Clearly inspired by his time in India, it tells the story of a leper drawn into an alternate reality, where, much to his annoyance, he is expected to be a hero. The manuscript completed, Donaldson began sending the book to publishers alphabetically. It was rejected by every one. As a last-ditch effort, he re-sent it to Ballantine Books, the publisher of Tolkien's LORD OF THE RINGS, a series to which Donaldson felt his work bore some similarities as far as structure and style. As luck would have it, Ballantine had hired a new editor since the previous mailing, and together they came up with some extensive changes, which Donaldson then used to revise the book. It appeared in 1977, split into three volumes, to great acclaim. Eventually becoming a six-book series, the Covenant books comprise Donaldson's major work to date. His five-volume Gap series was also met with considerable fanfare. In addition to these titles and a handful of other books, Donaldson has written short stories and, under a pseudonym, several detective novels.
From the Publisher
Annotation One evening Terisa Morgan is visited by a man in her mirror. His name is Geraden and he convinces her that she must join him in a parallel land called Mordent, which only she can deliver from the evil that threatens it. The first book in the "Mordant's Need" duology.
Editors Note With The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, Stephen R. Donaldson changed the face of fantasy fiction forever. In The Mirror of Her Dreams, the astonishing first novel in the two-volume Mordant’s Need series, Donaldson shows us a world of wondrous beauty and seductive illusion, where mirrors hold the deadliest of magics and nothing is what it seems. . . .The daughter of rich but neglectful parents, Terisa Morgan lives alone in a New York City apartment, a young woman who has grown to doubt her own existence. Surrounded by the flat reassurance of mirrors, she leads an unfulfilled life—until the night a strange man named Geraden comes crashing through one of her mirrors, on a quest to find a champion to save his kingdom of Mordant from a pervasive evil that threatens the land. Terisa is no champion. She wields neither magic nor power. And yet, much to her own surprise, when Geraden begs her to come back with him, she agrees.Now, in a culture where women are little more than the playthings of powerful men, in a castle honeycombed with secret passages and clever traps, in a kingdom threatened from without and within by enemies able to appear and vanish out of thin air, Terisa must become more than the pale reflection of a person. For the way back to Earth is closed to her. And the enemies of Mordant will stop at nothing to see her dead.
