J. Gregory Keyes
J. Gregory Keyes, the
author of several fantasy novels and a graduate student in anthropology
at the University of Georgia,
was born in Meridian
and spent his childhood in Mississippi and on the Navajo
Indian Reservation in Arizona. His immersion in Navajo culture at
an early age, coupled with tales drawn from his own familys
partial Native American ancestry, led Keyes to his interest in linguistics,
rituals, myths, and legends. His first novel, The Waterborn
was released in 1996, and his second, The Blackgod, came
out the following year. His third novel, Newtons Cannon,
launched his Age of Unreason series, an alternative-history
fantasy in which Isaac Newton discovers the secrets of alchemy.
Subsequent titles in the series are A Calculus of Angels (1999),
Empire of Unreason (2000), and the final installment in the
series, The Shadows of God (2001). He has also authored several
books in the Star Wars: The New Jedi Order series, Edge
of Victory I: Conquest and Edge of Victory II: Rebirth,
under the name Greg Keyes (2001). His most recent novel, The
Briar King (2003), is the first book in the Kingdoms of Thorn
and Bone series.
