Author Info
L.E. Modesitt
Born in 1943 as Leland Exter, L. E. Modesitt studied poetry at Williams College in Massachusetts, graduating with a B.A. in 1965. He joined the navy as a pilot that same year, eventually attaining the rank of lieutenant before leaving in 1969. He began graduate studies at the University of Denver in 1970, but left for the world of politics, working on the campaign trail. His first story was published in 1973, the same year that he became a legislative assistant first for U.S. Congressman Bill Armstrong and then for Ken Kramer. Modesitt married Christina Gribben in 1977, and the couple eventually had eight children. Briefly, he held a position at Georgetown University as a lecturer, but in 1981, he went to work for the Environmental Protection Agency. Modesitt's first novel, THE FIRES OF PARATIME, was published in 1982. He has since published a number of series and stand-alone novels, including the highly regarded Recluse series. In 1989, Modesitt left Washington, D.C., where he had lived since starting at the E.P.A., and met a lyric soprano whom he married (he and his first wife were divorced several years earlier). Modesitt's 1994 novel OF TANGIBLE GHOSTS, alludes to something of a fictionalized version of the couple's romance in the context of its larger concerns. That novel's sequel, THE GHOST OF THE REVELATOR, follows the heroes--a professor and his singer wife--as they visit Utah, a permanent move that the Modesitts made themselves in 1993.
From the Publisher
Editors Note The world of Corus is threatened by its global leaders' plans to redesign the planet in anticipation of a superior race's arrival, an effort that would reduce the psychic Pteridons to the status of a lesser race and render humans as little more than cattle. By the author of Scepters. Reprint.
Editors Note 1 L. E. Modesitt, Jr. returns to the world of Corus to continue the epic trilogy begun in Alector's Choice. It is the story of the fall of a great civilization and the tale of the Alector, Colonel Dainyl, and Captain Mykel, the Corean human with special abilities.  The world Corus has been redesigned to become the new home of a superior race from a distant world whose very life depends on drawing sustenance from the biological life force of a planet. Meanwhile, their plans are supervised by a staff of Alectors, who in effect rule the world. The Alectors alone have access to the huge flying Pteridons they have bred, and the superior weapons that underpin their psychic talents.The time is now fast approaching for the transfer of the whole population from the old world nearly bled dry of life force to Corus. But neither the Alectors (who will be reduced in status when the real powers arrive) nor the local humans (who seem destined to become no more than cattle, though they know nothing of this) are ready. And the mysterious Ancient Ones, the true natives of Corus and assumed to have died out in eons past, still survive, and they have their own powers. The situation builds toward an explosive climax.
