Subterranean Press is proud to announce we're reprinting the first volume of The Malazan Book of the Fallen.
The Malazan Empire is a continent-spanning dominion over which the ruthless Empress Laseen holds sway, her rule enforced by the Claws, the Imperial assassins. Bled dry by incessant warfare and undermined by dissension, signs indicate that the Empire could be crumbling from within.
The Genabackis campaign has been a war of attrition in which the Malazans have spent years fighting the combined forces of local armies aided by the formidable Son of Darkness and Lord of the Tiste Andii, Anomander Rake, the Crimson Guard, the powerful warlord Caladan Brood, and their allies.
Though they emerge victorious from the siege of Pale and impel the flying fortress of Moon’s Spawn to retreat and abandon the conflict, the Malazan triumph is bittersweet. Evidence implies that the Bridgeburners were nearly wiped out by treacherous elements from within the ranks of their own army.
Before any light can be shed on what truly occurred, the Malazan troops are sent marching to subdue Darujhistan, the last of the Free Cities of Genabackis. Soon, as the conflict escalates, powerful forces converge on Darujhistan.
And with gods and Ascendants watching and manipulating events, nothing is as it seems in the City of Blue Fire.
Thus begins The Malazan Book of the Fallen, one of the greatest and most ambitious fantasy epics of our time.

For this edition, Subterranean Press has licensed custom marbling art by artist Jemma Lewis. Jemma sent us the original art, which we used to create the endpapers. This type of marbling pattern is called "Stormont", a historical pattern that was developed in France during the beginning of the 19th century.
Jemma Lewis's marbling art is considered to be some of the best around the world. Subterranean Press has previously used her sheets for our lettered edition of Full Throttle.
