Read full description of the books De Leerling en de Magiër:In de Vale wordt de landelijke rust ruw verstoord door de komst van de gevreesde Groene Man, onder wiens bruingrijze mantel de magiër Gwydion schuilgaat. Hij is gekomen om de jonge Will weg te halen uit het huis van zijn pleegouders om hem inzicht te geven in de Taal der Stenen. Deze taal staat aan de basis van ons bestaan. Het is de taal van de schepping, de ruwe vorm die grootse magie kan ontketenen.
Will twijfelt, want de wereld buiten de Vale is groot en gevaarlijk. Maar zijn toekomstige leermeester is onverbiddelijk. Dus vertrekken ze samen - de leerling en de magiër - hun avontuur tegemoet.
Read information about the authorI was born in Staffordshire, near Etruria, the place made famous by Josiah Wedgwood, but was brought up in Sydney, Australia and later in Lancashire, England. I studied astrophysics at Newcastle University, where I started the student science fiction society. Writing novels has always played a part in my life, and I've tried to see the world enough to be able to write fiction with the help of personal experience.
After university, the US oil industry was booming so I went to Dallas, Texas, later on I worked on rigs in various parts of the Middle East and the war-torn heart of Africa. I was aboard the Ron Tappmeyer, a rig that blew out in the Persian Gulf, killing 19 men. It was dangerous work, but well-paid, and it took me to places that outsiders rarely see, like the Rub-al-Khali of Arabia and hard-to-reach parts of equatorial Africa.
When I left the oilfields, I spent time on travel, first to East Berlin and Warsaw, then to Moscow and Leningrad. From there I took the Trans-Siberian railway to Japan. In Hong Kong, I worked on a road survey, took tea with the heir of the last king of Upper Burma near Mandalay, and on the path to Everest base camp just happened to run into Sir Edmund Hillary. After traveling around most of India, Sri Lanka and Indonesia, I returned home and took up a job with the BBC. Four years later, I left BBC TV to write. I finally settled in London, but I still like to head off to interesting parts when time allows.
