R.A. Salvatore appears at Mysterious Galaxy on Wednesday October 15, 2014 at 5:00 pm to sign Rise of the King!

In the second book of the Companions Codex, the latest series in the New York Times best-selling saga of dark elf Drizzt Do’Urden, R.A. Salvatore picks up with the fan-favorite storyline of dwarf king Bruenor Battlehammer and his bloody feud with the orc kingdom of Many Arrows.

About the Author
R.A. Salvatore was born in Massachusetts in 1959. His love affair with fantasy, and with literature in general, began during his freshman year of college when he was given a copy of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings as a Christmas gift. He promptly changed his major from computer science to journalism. He received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications in 1981, then returned for the degree he always cherished, the Bachelor of Arts in English. He began writing seriously in 1982, penning the manuscript that would become Echoes of the Fourth Magic.

His first published novel was The Crystal Shard from TSR in 1988 and he is still best known as the creator of the dark elf Drizzt, one of fantasy’s most beloved characters. His novel The Silent Blade won the Origins Award, and Bob was the recipient of the prestigious Chandler Reward of Merit for his work in the field of young adult Literature. In the fall of 1997, his letters, manuscripts, and other professional papers were donated to the R.A. Salvatore Library at his alma mater, Fitchburg State College in Fitchburg, Massachusetts.

John Darnielle will be joined in conversation by Eisner Award–winning comic book writer Matt Fraction at Powell’s Books on Wednesday October 1, 2014 at 7:30 pm.

As the creator of a text-based role-playing game, Sean Phillips, isolated by a disfiguring injury since the age of 17, guides players from around the world through his intricately imagined terrain. An audacious and gripping debut novel from John Darnielle — front man for The Mountain Goats — Wolf in White Van (Farrar Straus Giroux) is a marvel of storytelling brio and genuine literary delicacy.
