About three decades ago, Raymond E. Feist’s Magician introduced fantasy readers all around the world to Pug and Midkemia. Magician was the first book in the Riftwar Saga, and the first series in what was later become known as the Riftwar Cycle. Ray concluded the tales this May with Magician’s End. But Midkemia: The Chronicles of Pug, offers readers a unique additional in-depth look at the world, complete with first person narrative and gorgeous artwork.
Appearing with Ray will be co-author and friend, Stephen Abrams.
Part travel log/journal and part atlas, Midkemia: The Chronicles of Pug brings the fictional world of Midkemia to vivid, illustrative life, and gives readers a completely new look at the creative genius of Raymond E. Feist. Written in first-person--a first for veteran bestseller Raymond Feist--the book details the life and times of Pug of Stardock, the hero of Feist's The Chaoswar Trilogy. Beautiful hand-drawn maps illustrate the changes in Midkemia's geography as war ravages the land and physically alters the landscape; dedicated readers and fans can literally trace the changes made by each battle. Complete with thirty pieces of specially commissioned artwork, this book is a totally immersive look into the world of Midkemia as never experienced before.
