Terry Brooks (Brooks, Terrence Dean, English: Terrence Dean Brooks) (January 8, 1944, Sterling, Illinois, USA) is an American science fiction writer. Biography Terry Brooks was born in 1944 in Illinois, where he spent his childhood and youth. He went to college and soon graduated from Washington and Lee University School of Law. In college, he began writing, and he wrote several short stories in the genres of science fiction, westerns, and realistic prose. In 1977 he wrote and published the Sword of Shannara, a fantasy novel. The plot of the novel concerned the last descendant of the elven family of Shannar, the only one who can master the magic Sword and save the Four Lands from the sorcerer Brona. In his debut, Terry clearly imitated John R.R. Tolkien, and he himself does not deny it. The Sword of Shannara was the first science fiction book to make it to the New York Times bestseller ratings and stayed there for more than five months. Brooks then decided to write professionally and left his legal career to devote all his time to writing books. In 1982, Terry published a sequel, The Elven Stones of Shannara, and Song of Shannara, published in 1985, completed the Omsword trilogy. Brooks moved to Seattle and wrote in 1986 "The Magic Kingdom For Sale", an ironic tale about a common man named Ben Holliday, who suddenly became the master of an entire magical kingdom. The book was the beginning of his new series of novels about the Earthen, which was soon supplemented by The Black Unicorn and Wizard at Large. In 1990, Terry returned to the Four Earths and wrote the tetralogy "The Legacy of Shannara", in which he departed from the previous fairytale-epic canons towards technomagic and post-apocalypse. In the future, Terry did not stop for a long time on one episode, alternating Shannara with the Ground, which helped him try new ideas. In 1996, he wrote First King of Shannara, a prequel to the entire epic, and has recently been working on an even earlier period in the history of the Four Lands. Also penned by Terry Brooks is the novelization of the film "Star Wars - The Phantom Menace", and the trilogy of "dark" fantasy "The Word & amp; Void ". Terry wrote the foreword to the Icewind Dale trilogy by Robert Salvatore. Adaptations In the mid-90s, the Sword of Shannara movie was planned to be filmed, but Terry revoked the film rights after reading the alleged script. The plot of the film planned to deviate too much from the original, moving the action into a post-apocalyptic universe. A screen version of The Magic Kingdom For Sale, directed by Steven Sommers, is scheduled for 2008. Bibliography of Shannar (books are given in internal chronology) * Prelude to Shannara: o The First King of Shannara (1996) * The original Shannara Trilogy: 1.
