Author Biography: From Wikipedia
R. Scott Bakker is a Canadian fantasy author. He grew up on a tobacco farm in the Simcoe area, and in 1986, attended the University of Western Ontario to pursue a degree in Literature, and later an MA in Theory and Criticism. After completing his formal education with a Ph.D. in Philosophy at Vanderbilt University, he moved to London, Ontario, where he now lives with his wife.

His first work is his high fantasy trilogy, The Prince of Nothing, which is composed of:

* The Darkness That Comes Before (2004)
* The Warrior Prophet (2005)
* The Thousandfold Thought (2006)

Further books are expected to explore the Prince of Nothing universe, although they will take place well after the trilogy's conclusion and involve some new characters. The next sequence, The Aspect-Emperor, will begin twenty years after the conclusion of The Thousandfold Thought. Only a few characters will be carried over from the preceding series. There will also be a further third series (also likely a duology), with the entire seven-book sequence known as The Second Apocalypse. "
