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. A wholly absorbing entry in this highly addictive series.--Kirkus, starred review on Antiagon Fire [Modesitt's] world building is seamless and realistic, and his characters are not only well-rounded but somehow familiar. Series fans will put this on their must-read list.--Library Journal, starred review on Imager's Battalion Fast-paced and full of political intrigue, corruption, and more overt forms of mayhem, this novel is a worthy sequel and a wonderful addition to the Imager portfolio. Highly recommended. --City Book Review (Sacramento/San Francisco) on Princeps. Perhaps the best so far in this consistently fascinating series.--Kirkus, starred review, on Scholar. Modesitt has drawn a world intriguing enough by itself and thoroughly integrated the magic of imaging into it. The characters are real people, learning and struggling and dealing with their families. Rivetingly beginning a new series, Imager Portfolio, this is thoroughly absorbing, whetting the appetite for the next installment.Booklist on Imager --Various

Read every single book in the entire series, this book is an ideal ending to what is essentially a prequel series to the initial imager series. It gives you a good understanding of image magic. Recommend it and the series.m

It felt like the end of this series, but there is scope for following new characters in a new book. The eight books in this series have been among Modesitt's best, if not the best, intriguing characters, interesting world, and believable. I shall be re-reading these for years to come.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This looks as though it may be the last of the novels about the career of Quaeryt, introduced in the novel "Scholar". The 5-book saga describes the conflicts leading up to the formation of the land of Solidar and the founding of the Imagers' College there. It forms a prequel to the 3 books centering on the imager Rhennthyl. At the opening of the book, the individual countries that make up Solidar have been largely conquered, and "Rex Regis" deals with their consolidation into a unified whole. Doing this requires Quaeryt to do a lot of i-dotting and t-crossing, unpromising material which the author succeeds in making interesting. The only serious action in the book arises from the decision of a couple of commanders of the conquering army to go fishing in troubled waters. Although I do not wish to spoil, part of the action here involves the <i>literal</i> appearance of a Deus ex machina, and I would have much preferred to see a more mundane solution. Possibly I have misunderstood what the author intended to imply, and it didn't ruin the book for me, but it did knock one star off the rating I would otherwise have given it.

After the previous book in this series this is a big improvement but there are still things I do not like. I don't think it was necessary to tell us so many times that dispatches had not been received and it grates on me how the main character and his consort are always calling each dearest. My main gripe though is how the problem with the enemy imagers is resolved, just not believable. I have read a lot of this author's books but I think is time to look elsewhere for my books in future.

Fully up to the high standard that L E Modesitt has demonstrated in previous books. The only negative comment is that you hate approaching the end of the book, but it is so engrossing that you cannot resist turning the next page.
Can recommend it to all imaginative readers.

This is the final book of this series and comes to a satisfying conclusion. Up to Modesitt's usual standard, he always writes books which you con't put down.
