A novelist and independent scholar, Mark Sebanc (pronounced: "Sea-Bank") lives deep in the rural hinterland of Ontario some 200 kilometres west of Ottawa near Algonquin Park, Canada’s famed wilderness area, with his Costa Rican wife. Trained as a classicist, with a B.A. and M.A. in Latin and Greek from the University of Toronto, he has worked as an editor and translator of numerous scholarly works. His editorial credits include, for example, The Flame Imperishable, Jonathan McIntosh’s landmark work on the metaphysical underpinnings of Tolkien’s legendarium. He is also the originating co-author of The Stoneholding and Darkling Fields of Arvon, the first two books of the Legacy of the Stone Harp epic fantasy series. Both are published by Baen as part of a project expected to run to five titles. Most recently, he was given the commission by the Estate of the late William A.S. Sarjeant to edit and overhaul extensively Sarjeant’s monumental 12 novel Perilous Quest for Lyonesse epic historical fantasy series.
