Ted Fauster Wikipedia
Ted Fauster writes both science fantasy, which is a hybrid of fantasy fiction and science fiction, and sword and sorcery style fantasy fiction that is strongly influenced by the tabletop game, Dungeons & Dragons. His books are big and bold, and very quest-oriented.
At the heart of every Ted Fauster book lies adventure, camaraderie, and a good quest. The struggle for survival is always a key element. Ted’s characters often form tight brotherhoods of warriors and adventurers who work together to overcome all odds. Along the way, there is technology to overcome, mysteries to be solved, monsters to battle and dungeons to be cleared.
While he remains true to his Jack Chalker/Tad Williams and Fritz Leiber/Robert E. Howard roots, Ted is also inspired by the contemporary genre masters including R. A. Salvatore, Jay Lake, Terry Brooks, Neil Gaiman, and many more.
