His first novel was a comptemporary adventure story, High Hunt. But he has always been interested in the field of fantasy, and developed the Belgariad series to develop certain technical and philosophical ideas concerning the fantasy genre. After the success of the Belgariad he consolidated his success with two further popular series, The Mallorean and The Elenium.
