Mark Charan Newton is an English science fiction writer working in the fantasy genre. Born on March 28, 1981. He owes an unusual name to his parents: his father is an Englishman and his mother is from India. Mark Charan Newton is an environmentalist by education, he even wrote articles for the oldest specialized British magazine "The Ecologist" ("Resurgence"). However, after graduation, he first worked in a bookstore, then moved on to the position of editor at the Black Flame imprint and later at Solaris (both at that time belonged to The Black Library). There he was engaged in a variety of areas, but most closely - promoting science fiction, fantasy and horror on both sides of the Atlantic. At the moment, Mark Charan Newton is exclusively engaged in literary activity; lives in Nottingham, UK. Mark`s literary career began after reading the novel "Scar" by Chyna Mieville, under the influence of which he created his debut novel "The Reef". He was 23 at the time. The first publication had to wait four years, "The Reef" came out in a limited edition in a small publishing house "Pendragon Press". Ironically, just six months later, in the giant "Tor" `e, the first book of the tetralogy "Legends of the Red Sun" was published, which became Newton`s calling card. Villjamur Nights opened a cycle that was clearly influenced by Mieville (and, in part, George Martin). The distant future, the dying Earth, magic indistinguishable from technology, coupled with ambiguous living characters and the ability to turn the plot upside down, brought Mark Charan Newton well-deserved fame. After completing the tetralogy in 2012, Mark released the novel "Drakenfield" a year later and thus marked the beginning of a new cycle, radically different from "Legends". The protagonist of the new story, on whose behalf the story is told, Lucan Drakenfeld is a servant of the law, an officer of the Solar Chamber of the Royal Vispassian Union. From the name of the country, you can already guess that the world of Drakenfeld was created with an eye on classic Rome. Readers also note the similarities between the books in the cycle and the historical detectives Ellis Peters or Lindsay Davis. Author`s site: http://markcnewton.com
