About Author
David Gemmell is a full-time writer and a London Times bestseller. Expelled from school at sixteen for organizing a gambling syndicate, he became a laborer by day, and at night his six-foot-four-inch, 230-pound frame allowed him to earn extra money as a bouncer working nightclubs in Soho. He has also worked as a freelance journalist with the London Daily Mail, Daily Mirror, and Daily Express. His first novel, Legend, was published in 1984 and has remained in print ever since. He became a full-time writer in 1986.

Died aged 57 on Friday 28th July, 2006, 2 weeks after heart by-pass surgery.

In honor of heroic fantasy author David Gemmell, the David Gemmell Legend Award will be presented for the very first time in 2009 for the best fantasy novel of 2008. The award will be given to a work written in the spirit of the late author of Legend, Lion of Macedon, and the Troy sequence, among many other novels.
