The Ant-Man of Malfen by D.P. Prior
Book1 of the Chronicles of the Nameless Dwarf
Nils Fargin reckons he's a big fish in a little pond. After all, he's son of a guildmaster, ain't he? But when he arrives at the brigand settlements in the Outlands, he may be a tad out of his depth.
It had seemed a straight forward enough task, leading a dwarf with no name to the wizard Jankson Brau. Plan was to get some information about a bunch of dwarves who'd headed through the Malfen Pass.
Trouble is, the dwarves are the survivors of the recent massacre at the ravine city, Arx Gravis, and Nils's companion, the Nameless Dwarf, is none other than the butcher they are fleeing from.
Like it or not, Nils's path takes him to the bandit town of Malfen, where the Nameless Dwarf must confront its terrifying ruler, Shent, the Ant-Man.
"I can say with no hyperbole that D.P. Prior is one of the most promising fantasy writers emerging on the scene today. Featuring a style that's intelligent yet accessible, imaginative yet concrete, the books in his Chronicles of the Nameless Dwarf series are a must for anyone hoping to get a sense of what's next in the fantasy genre. All of the books are highly rated and backed by respected reviewers, meaning this should more than tide you over until the next season of Game of Thrones starts." (The Kindle Fire Department)
About The Author...
I was born in the South East of England in the late sixties, just in time to get a good sniff at the Summer of Love.
I spent most of my childhood immersed in fantasy and SF novels as well as Marvel comics. I also had an unhealthy obsession with D&D and was, for a long time, a member of the rather dodgy wargaming society at the Archery recreation ground.
After studying theatre at Lewes I did a season as Father Christmas, worked as a lighting and sound technician, and then trained for three years to be a Mental Health Nurse. I started in one of the Victorian asylums but ended up at the University of Sussex.
Once qualifying, I was immediately off to Aberystwyth to study for a BA in Drama. I also studied Classics and Medieval History and ended up specializing in Acting and Intercultural Theatre.
I gained twenty years of varied experience in mental health, working in acute services, crisis resolution, management of violence and aggression, and eating disorders. This was interspersed with a five month postulancy with the Carmelite Order in Melbourne and further studies at the University of Notre Dame in Western Australia.
On my second sojourn in Australia, following the birth of my son, Theo, I began work on my first completed novel, The Resurrection of Deacon Shader. This went through many iterations and ended up forming the raw material for Cadman’s Gambit, book one of the Shader series. It was at this time that I took to wearing a poncho and Panama hat whilst chopping firewood. It seemed to help with the writing at the time, but now I have my doubts.
I founded and moderated the Mysticism Unbound discussion group to help explore some of the themes for my postgraduate research into Antonin Artaud and the Theatre of Cruelty. Although the group eventually closed it has subsequently been resurrected twice and is currently flourishing on Facebook.
Following my return from Australia I trained to become a personal trainer and set up my own gym (Fitness Instruction for Strength and Health). I specialized in resistance training and worked exclusively with private clients until I sold the gym.
I began to edit professionally in 2009 during a trip to Chicago and this developed into a flourishing business (Homunculus Editing Services).
