Christian W. Freed was born in Buffalo, N.Y. more years ago than he would like to remember. After spending more than 20 years in the active duty US Army he has turned his talents to writing.

The battle of Helm's Deep was visually pleasing, but it was a complete waste of life. I try to use real tactics and go from there. (less)

The Malazan Book of the Fallen is 10 books and accompanied by several smaller companion novels set within the overall timeline. I also got hooked on L E Modesitt Jr's Recluse novels. As for influence- I would say Dennis McKiernan inspired me when I was still a child. (less)

How many writers- new and old- suffer from trying to create something original? With more books being published than ever before, finding an original concept is proving more difficult. Let’s forget the part where Shakespeare basically ruined it for all when he knocked out the ten major themes in books. Seriously, save a little for the rest of us.


The bottom line is that chances are that great id...
