More About the Author

No matter what anyone claims, writers are made, not born, and what and how they write is the result of just how they were made... or how they made themselves. I began by writing poetry, which was published only in small magazines, and then went on to write administrative reports while I was a U.S. Naval aviator, followed by research papers, speeches, economic and technical studies, and policy and briefing papers. Along the way, I've been a delivery boy; a lifeguard; an unpaid radio disc jockey; a U.S. Navy pilot; a market research analyst; a real estate agent; director of research for a political campaign; legislative assistant and staff director for U.S. Congressmen; Director of Legislation and Congressional Relations for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; a consultant on environmental, regulatory, and communications issues; a college lecturer and writer in residence; and unpaid treasurer of a civic music arts association.

As a result, my writing tends to incorporate all of the above, in addition to the science fiction I read from a very early age. After close to sixty published novels, and perhaps a score of short stories, it's fairly clear to me that "what kind of writer" I am for readers tends to depend on which of my books each reader has read.

Along the way, I've weathered eight children, a fondness for three-piece suits [which has deteriorated into a love of vests], a brown Labrador, a white cockapoo, an energetic Shih-tzu, two scheming dachshunds, a capricious spaniel, a crazy Saluki-Aussie, and various assorted pet rodents. Finally, in 1989, to escape nearly twenty years of occupational captivity in Washington, D.C., I escaped to New Hampshire. There I was fortunate enough to find and marry a lovely lyric soprano, and we moved to Cedar City, Utah, in 1993, where she directs the voice and opera program at Southern Utah University and where I attempt to create and manage chaos in the process of writing.




Product Description

Review

Praise for The Imager Portfolio Solidly engrossing.--Kirkus Reviews on Princeps. The author excels in creating worlds that are believable down to the last detail and characters whose vitality expresses itself in actions that have resounding consequences.--Library Journal on Scholar. Quaeryt is a fascinating character, and his trials and journey are action packed and yet intellectual.--RT Book Reviews, 4 stars, on Scholar. Modesitt has only one style: subtle intrigues anchored in vividly drawn, complex characters, stiffly formal conversations and descriptional arabesques in tones of gray. Perhaps the best so far in this consistently fascinating series.--Kirkus, Starred Review, on Scholar. Modesitt's work shines with engrossing characters, terrific plotting, and realistic world-building.--RT Book Reviews on Imager. The Imager Portfolio features some of the best characters Modesitt has ever created.--Booklist on Imager's Challenge. Modesitt has drawn a superb portrait of an honest and powerful man handed a crisis that even he may not be able to handle. . . . Extremely satisfying.Booklist on Imager's Intrigue --Various --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I don't know how he does it but Mr Modesitt yet again produces a book that I just couldn't put down. The Imager Portfolio and The Saga of Recluse are well thought out, imaginative, and unputdownable reads, all of them!!!
This gentleman has somehow escaped the glory and acclamation of other authors who have produced more 'fashionable' books.
Mr Modessit is up there with the best, Katherine Kerr, Robin Hobb, Brent Weeks, Terry Goodkind, in fact he stands atop of the pile!!

I resent books like this. L.E. Modesitt is a perfectly competent writer ... when he can be bothered. He has written some splendid material, such as "The Magic of Recluce" and the "Forever Hero" novels. He has also written inferior works, more or less routinely, as sequels.

This is an inferior work, Modesitt by numbers. All his military campaigns are exactly the same. The countryside is sketchily realised, the people interactions invariably involve the hero sitting around with minimal forces, worrying at his colleagues and subordinates and getting constantly reassured by them - something that is quite simply unbelievable and irritating. Indeed there is a parody waiting to be written where all the minor characters groan at the author making them constantly pet the hero. So frankly it's boring a lot of the time. Modesitt's ability to keep the reader with him means you finish the work; but only just.

Much of the plot is silly. The hero - never mind his name, it's the same hero as every other Modesitt book - goes off on a dangerous diplomatic mission, with wife (!). Instead of negotiating the council of Khel make pointless speeches. After which, for no obvious reason, the hero goes and stands on a hill-top while people get him dive-bombed by eagles.

Anybody with an elementary experience of human interactions will find all this incredible. Khel itself was tedious and improbable as a country.

Likewise the scenes where the hero is involved in pacifying Bovaria. I wonder if Modesitt knows that there are memoirs, written by imperial civil servants who had to do precisely such a role in difficult country, after British forces had won the major battle but now had to create a nation? (e.g.

I have a little problem with these books. I've been reading this series back to back and have to keep stopping to recharge my ereader.

Anyway, enough of my problems.

Very subtle and very well written series. I have the original imager series set in a future time after this one and I will be rereading it after I have finished this one, as I think I will get a lot more information out of it. Every time I read these books I pick up things I have missed. The different customs of the lands he travels through are very well thought out and I find myself living the book. I want to know what happens, but I don't want the story to end

Great plot, good story line. This story grabs your attention from the beginning and doesn't let go, and I will be reading this again and again. Good series.

As a fan of Modesitt (I've read just about everything he's written) I can say this is a jolly good read. It's not him at his best but Modesitt always writes cogently, clearly and engages the reader well. His characters are similar to those in his other books. It's a good plot and full of action. I also like the way the worlds he creates link with one another and the way he plays with his hero and similar themes in each novel.

If you want to know why I'm still reading this series, please see my review for Imager's Battalion.

I'm still in a quandary!

Modesitt does again in this amazing Prequel to the Imager series- all the past references in the original series are now coming to life in the life and loves of a Founder of Solidar as he and his wife in their separate ways build a land that will protect the future of Imagers and the land around them and its place in the world

4 stars because this is a typically competent offering by L E Modesitt. I know and like his style and I like his characters and their situations. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
