Author Info
Mercedes Lackey
Mercedes Lackey's father was an avid science fiction reader, and it was through him that she was introduced to the genre. One of first sf books she read was Andre Norton's BEAST MASTER. Lackey began to write her own stories set in Norton's Witch World. Setting aside writing to attend Purdue University, she graduated in 1972 with a B.Sc. in biology. After graduation, she held a variety of odd jobs, including security guard and artist's model, before ending up, almost by accident, as a computer programmer. In 1982, she moved to Tulsa and went to work for American Airlines. She also began to write again, eventually striking up a correspondence with writer Marion Zimmer Bradley. In 1985, Lackey's first story was published in an anthology edited by Bradley. Lackey had long been involved in the somewhat nefarious world of science fiction conventions and gatherings, and began to write song lyrics to be performed at these events. Originally, she began to compose songs about scenes she was writing in order to strip down the writing to the barest minimum and get a handle on what she really wanted to say--a technique she continues to use. Her songs proved very popular (over 50 of them have been set to music and recorded!), and one attracted the attention of writer C. J. Cherryh, who encouraged Lackey to write her first novel, 1987s ARROWS OF THE QUEEN. That book turned out to be the first in what was to be the lengthy, and on-going, Valdemar series. A prolific and popular writer, Lackey has written, or co-written, more than 50 books since 1982, and she shows no signs of slowing down.

Editors Note It’s good to be meta-human, a superhuman hero in a world of normals. Use your superpowers, fight crime, stave off the occasional rogue mutant—then get some rest and have a nice day. But when swastika-laden robotic warriors from an alternate and incredibly advanced Third Reich discover a way to breach the barrier between worlds, the metas face an opponent that will push them to the edge of extinction.And if they can survive the transdimensional menace, the titanic effort will finally push the metas onward to find their true place in society and force them to forge a new, heroic destiny for their kind!From New York Times best-seller and science fiction and fantasy mistress of adventure Mercedes Lackey together with a team of topnotch collaborators, the start of a new saga of superpowers—and the very human men and women who must learn to wield them without losing themselves in the process!About Mercedes Lackey:“With [Mercedes Lackey], suspense never lags...”—Kliatt
