Did you know the entire Riftwar Saga when you started to write the Magician?

From: Raymond E. Feist
Date: 11 October 1999

Not, obviously, if you mean literally every detail. I had the high points in mind when I wrote Magician, and some sense of where I wanted to go with the Great Uprising. Originally Silverthorn and Darkness were going to be one book, but my publisher decided he wanted two.

Anyway, I usually know a couple of "high points" along the way, but in the main when I start a novel, I only know where it's going to end, and I find out things along the way as I write.

Best, R.E.F.
