The Belgariad

I’m a huge book dork, it’s a fact that I’ve learned to live with over the years. And one of the greatest series of my youth was the tale of the boy Garion and his quest to find the Orb of Aldur. Yes, my friends, I speak of “The Belgariad” series. Consisting of five books, it details the trials and growth of our budding young hero and his companions as they seek this holy relic that will balance the scales between good and evil. These days, the writing level would most likely be considered young adult but this story transcends such petty things. It inspires and teaches, allowing the reader to watch as our young boy grows into more than a man, he becomes a hero.

I’ve long wished this series would be given the Lord of the Rings/Game of Thrones treatment, that someone would create a visual representation worthy of this epic tale. But alas, it has yet to happen. But my life was improved ever so slightly by this fan-made trailer, which you can watch below. Made from pieces of other films and shows, it is perhaps the best representation I have seen to date. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did/do. With all of the original content coming out on Netflix, do you think they could find the time to maybe just make me a little thirteen episode season for each book? I’d really appreciate it, if so.

Best-selling author David Eddings died yesterday in Carson City, NV, at age 77. No cause of death was given.

Eddings was a giant in the world of fantasy literature with most of his popularity stemming from his Belgariad and Malloreon book series. The now-classic Pawn of Prophecy launched the epic Belgariad series in 1982 and was instantly embraced by fans of the fantasy genre.

The author collaborated on most of his works with his wife Leigh Eddings, who died in 2007 at the age of 69. Born in Spokane, WA, Eddings studied literature and drama in college, receiving a Master’s Degree from the University of Washington in 1961 before being drafted into the U.S. Army. In 1973, Eddings wrote a fictional adventure novel High Hunt, but later switch to fantasy writing after seeing a copy of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings in its 78th printing made him realize that the genre was still a viable one.
