Raymond E. Feist (born 1945) is an American author, mostly specialising in fantasy fiction.

Betrayal at Krondor
The computer game company Dynamix, a division of Sierra On-line, released a critically acclaimed computer game based on Feist's Riftwar series: Betrayal at Krondor. Feist contributed the text and dialogue and the game was noted for exceptionally good story and gameplay. This game was released in 1993. The events in this game are told in the book Krondor: The Betrayal.
Return to Krondor
Sierra On-Line once again releases another computer game set in Raymond E. Feist's Midkemia. This game occurs a few years after the previous game, Betrayal at Krondor. It was released in 1998 and the events in this game are told in the book Krondor: Tear of the Gods.
