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
Annotation In the third book of the Recluce series (which appears between THE TOWERS OF THE SUNSET and THE ORDER WAR in the internal chronology of the series), a young man from the magic-oriented island of Recluce becomes obsessed with the sciences--in particular, machinery--and is exiled to the borders of the realms of Chaos.
Editors Note The latest book in the saga of Recluce, this is the story of Dorrin of Recluce, blacksmith and scion of the Order magicians, who invents wonderful devices. His insights violate the rules of Order magic, so he must go into exile in the lands of Chaos--where the forces of the Chaos wizards move across the land and whose ultimate goal is the destruction of Recluce.
Editors Note 2 The chronicles of the magical island of Recluce continue as young Dorrin, fascinated by forbidden science, goes into exile in the lands of Chaos, where he unwillingly invents devices of war to save his land from the evil Chaos wizards
