About this Event
L. E. Modesitt, Jr. is the bestselling author of the fantasy series The Saga of Recluce and the Imager Portfolio. His science fiction includes Adiamante, the Ecolitan novels, the Forever Hero Trilogy, and Archform: Beauty. Besides a writer, Modesitt has been a U.S. Navy pilot, a legislative assistant and staff director for a U.S. Congressman, Director of Legislation and Congressional Relations for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and a college lecturer. He lives in Cedar City, Utah.
Modesitt’s latest novel, Quantum Shadows, is a masterful blend of religion and myth in an adventure that pits old gods and new against one another in a far future world for a philosophical cross-genre tale.
Welcome to Heaven, a world where the ten major religions of mankind each have its own land governed by a capital city and ruled by a Hegemon – a god, or a prophet of god. Corvyn, also known as the Shadow of the Raven, is an incredibly powerful air spirit. When an unknown force burns a mysterious black image into the holy place of each House of the Decalivre in the shape of a trident, Corvyn must discover what entity could possibly wield that much power. The stakes are nothing less than another Fall of humankind, and if he doesn’t stop it, mankind will not rise from these ashes.
With overtones of some of the genre’s greatest writers, such as Roger Zelanzy and Gene Wolfe, Modesitt create a formidable and elegant world with intricate detail and powerful imagination that will appeal to lifelong fans and newcomers alike.
