More About Stephen R. Lawhead
Stephen Lawhead is an internationally acclaimed author of mythic history and imaginative fiction. He was born in 1950, in Nebraska in the USA. His early life was lived in America where he earned a university degree in Fine Arts and attended theological seminary for two years.
His first professional writing was done at Campus Life magazine in Chicago, where he was an editor and staff writer. During his five years at Campus Life he wrote hundreds of articles and several non-fiction books.
After a brief and unsuccessful foray into the music business—as president of his own record company—he launched his free-lance career in 1981. In the Hall of the Dragon King was his first novel.
In 1986 the Lawhead family moved to Britain so that Stephen could conduct research for the PENDRAGON CYCLE books. They settled there permanently in 1990, with some years spent living in Austria and a sabbatical in the United States.
In addition to his twenty-four novels, he has written nine children's books, many of them originally offered to his two sons, Drake and Ross. He is married to Alice Slaikeu Lawhead, with whom he has collaborated on books and articles. They make their home in Oxford, England.
Stephen's non-fiction, fiction and children's titles have variously been published in twenty-four foreign languages. He has won numerous industry awards, and in 2003 was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters by the University of Nebraska.

Reviews - What do customers think about Paradise War (Song Of Albion V1)?
Great Fantasy Jul 10, 2008
This book was one my parents bought for me, it took me a while to get into it, but I was determined to read it. Halfway through the book I got to where I didn't want to put it down at all, I just sat and finished the entire book in one day, a great book that I would read again.
good Apr 21, 2008
Good book. well written and keeps your attention all the way through. excellent discriptive writing.
A good beginning Feb 8, 2008
This was a good and exciting read. I was first exposed to Stephen Lawhead when I read Hood. The Paradise War was reminiscent of Hood and Scarlet of the King Raven trilogy. Lawhead's knowledge of Celtic lore and his story telling is intriguing. I highly recommend this to all readers of fantasy and mythology.
Eh, why such good reviews? Sep 12, 2007
Another series created out of the idea that a run of the mill dude discovers an alternate world, where he all a sudden becomes courageous and forgets his past. Besides that, the build up of a great magical climax is greatly over hyped, as it falls flat. Dont buy this novel if you are looking for your next great fantasy read
Super Reader Aug 27, 2007
A solid fantasy trilogy, with the often useful hook of placing a modern man into the setting - with the twist that he becomes one of the great Celtic heroes, but not quite how you expect. The other thing is that he is an arts grad student nerd, too, so even more surprising. Not remarkable though, certainly would not read it again. A grad student and friend go on a wild trip, and find a supposedly extinct prehistoric ox, then follow it, and end up in a Celtic mythic Albion, and have to adapt fast.
