   David Gemmell was born in London, England, in the 
   summer of 1948. 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 and has been hailed by many as 
   the king of Heroic fantasty.
