Korte biografie
Born in 1947 in Cleveland, Ohio, Stephen R. Donaldson lived in India (where his father was a medical missionary) until 1963. He graduated from the College of Wooster (Ohio) in 1968, served two years as a conscientious objector during the Vietnam War, doing hospital work in Akron, then attended Kent State University, where he received his M.A. in English in 1971.After dropping out of his Ph.D. program and moving to New Jersey in order to write fiction, Donaldson made his publishing debut with the first "Covenant" trilogy in 1977. That enabled him to move to a healthier climate. He now lives in New Mexico.The novels for which he is best known have received a number of awards. However, the achievements of which he is most proud are the ones that seemed the most unlikely. In 1993 he received a Doctor of Literature degree from the College of Wooster, and in 1994 he gained a black belt in Shotokan karate from Sensei Mike Heister and Anshin Personal Defense.After completing the five-book, seven-year Gap sequence of science fiction novels, Donaldson spent quite some time "on vacation." However, he has now returned to work. His most recent book prior to The Man Who Fought Alone was a second collection of short fiction, Reave the Just and Other Tales. He is currently hard at work on "The Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant".



In dit deel gaan Thomas Covenant en zijn gezelschap ten strijde. Het eerste gedeelte verhaalt de terugkomst van de groep naar het Land. Dit deel van het verhaal was saai. Had hier het gevoel dat dit aan het verhaal toegevoegd was als boekvulling. Het tweede gedeelte verhaalt de eindstrijd. Veel aktie en de moeite waard om te lezen.

Dit deel verhaalt de tocht via zee in hun zoektocht naar de Ene Boom, waarvan Thomas Covenant denkt dat die de redding is van het land.
Ik heb ontzettend van genoten dat er meer achtergrond over het ontstaan van het land werd vrijgegeven. Het verhaal is zo goed dat ik besloot om ook De Laatste Kronieken aan te kopen. Stephen Donaldson wordt met elk deel die ik lees beter in het schrijven over de omzwervingen van Thomas Covenant en co.
