    Guy Gavriel Kay

    In the middle of the 80s the canadaian Guy Gavriel Kay (1954-) published his first novel. He had got involved with fantasy when he as a student helped Christopher Tolkien to bring order into the papers that JRR Tolkien had left, and to finish Tolkiens last novel: Silmarillion.
    Kay's debutnovel, The Summer Tree (1985), was the first in a trilogy called The Fionavar Tapestry. The other two novels were The Wandering Fire (1986) and The Darkest Road (1986).
    The story is in much built on nordic and celtic mythology and is about five students that found themselves in a mystic world called Fionavar. Fionavar is the mother of all world, all myths and legends comes from this world.
    The story is much darker and more realistic than fantasy usually are, the students aren't immortal and found themselves and quite deep trouble.
    In the later books by Kay, the magic has got smaller place and the historic telling has getting more space. Tigana (1990) and A song for Arbonne (1992) is still stories of fantasy while The Lions of Al-Rassan (1995) is more of a historic novel.
