Steven Erikson se ve skutečnosti jmenuje Steve Rune Lundin. Pseudonym si zvolil podle rodného jména své matky, milovnice dobrodružných románů. Narodil se v kanadském Torontu v roce 1959. Vystudoval paleontologii a 18 let jezdil po vykopávkách v Jižní a Střední Americe. Tak poznal i svou ženu. Spolu se přestěhovali do Anglie, kde však nemohl najít odpovídající místo, takže byl nucen vykonávat různé kancelářské práce. S těmi mohl praštit až ve chvíli, kdy jeho Měsíční zahrady sklidily obrovský úspěch. Autorova popularita má i svou příjemnou stranu – patří k nejlépe placeným autorům tohoto žánru. Nyní se věnuje pouze psaní, jeho cyklus Malazská Kniha padlých má už osm dílů (z plánovaných deseti). Napsal i humornou novelu Potoky krve, popisující dobrodružství nekromantů Korbala a Bauchelaina a jejich lokaje.
Jeho oblíbenými autory jsou například Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum, Stephen King, Glen Cook a Ursula Le Guinová. V oblibě má i RPG hry, vycházející ze systému GURPS. (Fantasy Planet)
