Forgotten Realms: The Library

Philip Athans

Author: Philip Athans

Philip has been a writer since he first put crayon to paper. An avid role-player since the 70's, he credits Robert E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and R. A. Salvatore as inspirations for his fantasy style.

His professional career began with a short story published in the science-fiction magazine Starshore and moved on to novels. Most recently, and with only minor plying of the whip by his editor, he wrote Baldur's Gate, a novelization of the much anticipated computer game. He enjoys being a part of the Forgotten Realms community and is already hard at work on a sequel.

Despite being a talented writer, Philip is somewhat shy when it comes to writing personal biographies, which is why we find ourselves with so little to say about him.
