Product Overview

Once upon a time there was a kingdom that lived in darkness, for the sun, the moon and the stars were hidden in a box, and that box was hidden in a sow's belly, and that sow was hidden in a troll's cave, and that cave was hidden at the end of the world. Once upon a time there was a studio of artists who feared they were doomed to obscurity, for though they worked and they worked, no one was interested in the paintings that stood in racks along their studio walls. The Sun, the Moon, & the Stars is a tale of two quests, of two young men who are reaching for the moon. And the sun. And the stars.

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.
