Rumors abound that the Crippled God is now unchained and intent on a terrible revenge. The Elder Gods, too, are seeking to return.
The Fokrul Assail are drawing upon a terrible power; their desire is to cleanse the world - to eradicate every civilization, to annihilate every human - in order to begin anew. For Sergeant Whiskeyjack and his Bridgeburners and for Tattersail, sole surviving sorceress of the Second Legion, the aftermath of the siege of Pale should have been a time to mourn the dead.
Like a fanatical tide of corrupted blood, it seethes across the land, devouring all who fail to heed the Word of its elusive prophet, the Pannion Seer. Deadhouse Gates: A Tale of the Malazan Book of Fallen by Steven Ericson - PDF free download eBook For the impending struggle between these two peoples is but a pale reflection of a far more profound, primal battle--a confrontation with the still-raw wound of an old betrayal and the craving for revenge at its seething heart.
Descriptions are just enough to paint a picture without being cumbersome. Dire portents plague his nights and haunt the city streets like fiends of shadow.
It seems that, once more, there will be dragons in the world. Yet as the two sides gather for a pivotal treaty neither truly wants, ancient forces are awakening. Or of necessity kept under firm heel. Conceived and written on a panoramic scale, Gardens of the Moon is epic fantasy of the highest order--an enthralling adventure by an outstanding new voice.

ISBN Version 1. Esslemont worlds to conquer worlds to share Acknowledgements No novel is ever written in isolation. The author wishes to thank the following for their support over the years: Preface to Gardens of the Moon redux There is no point in beginning something without ambition.
In so many aspects of my life I have held to that notion, and it has led to more than one fiery crash through the years.
I still recall, with some bitterness, the response Cam Ian C. Esslemont and I received when flogging our co-written feature film and television scripts: Very funny, very dark Good luck.

Something like everything else out there. Something less Did we really hear an invitation to mediocrity? Sure sounded like it.
Well, screw that. Gardens of the Moon. Just to muse on that title resurrects all those notions of ambition, all that youthful ferocity that seemed to drive me headlong against a wall time and again.
The need to push.
Defy convention. Go for the throat. I like to think I was entirely aware of what I was doing back then.
That my vision was crystal clear and that I was actually standing there, ready to spit in the face of the genre, even as I reveled in it for how could I not? As much as I railed against the tropes, I loved reading the stuff. Now, I'm not so sure.
It's easy to ride on instinct in the moment, only to look back later and attribute cogent mindfulness to everything that worked while ignoring everything that didn't.
Too easy. In the years and many novels since, certain facts have made themselves plain. Beginning with Gardens of the Moon, readers will either hate my stuff or love it. There's no in-between. Naturally, I'd rather everybody loved it, but I understand why this will never be the case. These are not lazy books.

You can't float through, you just can't. Even more problematic, the first novel begins halfway through a seeming marathon - you either hit the ground running and stay on your feet or you're toast.
When challenged with writing this preface, I did consider for a time using it as a means of gentling the blow, of easing the shock of being dropped from a great height into very deep water, right there on page one of Gardens of the Moon.
Some background, some history, some setting of the stage.

I've since mostly rejected the idea. Dammit, I don't recall Frank Herbert doing anything like that with Dune, and if any novel out there was a direct inspiration in terms of structure, that was the one.
I'm writing a history and fictional or not, history has no real beginning point; even the rise and fall of civilizations are far more muddled on the front and back ends than many people might think.
Gardens of the Moon's bare bones first saw life in a role-playing game. Its first draught was as a feature film co-written by the two creators of the Malazan world, myself and Ian C.
Esslemont; a script that languished for lack of interest 'we don't do fantasy films because they suck.
It's a dead genre. It involves costumes and costume dramas are as dead as Westerns' - all this before a whole slew of production companies shoved that truism in their faces, all this long before Lord of the Rings hit the big screen.
And that was just it. We were there. We had the goods, we knew that Adult Epic Fantasy was film's last unexplored genre - we didn't count Willow, which only earned merit in our eyes for the crossroads scene; the rest of the stuff was for kids through and through. And all the other films coming out in that genre were either B flicks or egregiously flawed in our eyes gods, what could have been done with Conan! We wanted sophisticated shit, you see. We were pushing Fantasy in that sizzling, scintillating context of jaw-dropping admiration.
We were, in other words, as ambitious as hell. Probably, too, we weren't ready. We didn't quite have the stuff. Thinking past our abilities, trapped in the lack of experience.
The curse of the young. When life took Cam in one direction and me in another, we both carried with us the notes for an entire created world. Constructed through hours upon hours of gaming. We had an enormous history all worked out - the raw material for twenty novels, twice as many films. And we each had copies of a script nobody wanted. The decision to begin writing the history of the Malazan world began a few years later. I would convert the script into a novel. Cam would write a related novel entitled Return of the Crimson Guard and now, all these years later, and fresh on the heels of his Night of Knives, Cam's first epic, Return, is going to be published.
As works of fiction, authorship would belong to the actual writer, the person putting word after word onto the page. For Gardens, the conversion meant almost starting from scratch. The script was three acts all set in Darujhistan. The main events were the assassin war on the rooftops and the grand, explosive finale of the fete.
There was virtually nothing else.
No back story, no context, no real introduction of characters. Ambition never goes away. It may shuffle off, grumbling, feet dragging, only to slide across into something else - usually the next project. It doesn't take 'no' for an answer.Erikson shows a masterful control of an immense plot Very funny, very dark However, it seems the empire is not alone in this great game.

Just to muse on that title resurrects all those notions of ambition, all that youthful ferocity that seemed to drive me headlong against a wall time and again. He idolizes his older brother Jack, a tattooed Adonis with perfection in his blood, and together they idolize the Winnipeg Jets. And sometimes, on midnight afternoons, I ask myself: This masterwork of the imagination may be the high watermark of epic fantasy' Glen Cook 'Truly epic in scope, Erikson has no peer when it comes to action and imagination, and joins the ranks of Tolkien and Donaldson in his mythic vision and perhaps then goes one better' SF Site 'Rare is the writer who so fluidly combines a sense of mythic power and depth of world with fully realized characters and thrilling action, but Steven Erikson manages it spectacularly' Michael A.
Esslemont and I received when flogging our co-written feature film and television scripts: Tavore, the Adjunct to the Empress, has arrived in the last remaining Malazan stronghold of Seven Cities. Some background, some history, some setting of the stage.
