The Mage-Fire War (The Saga Of Recluce book 22) by L.E. Modesitt, Jr. (book review).

‘The Mage-Fire War’ is the 22nd book of ‘The Saga Of Recluce’. but don’t let that put you off as they can mostly be read independently. This is the third book featuring Beltur, a nice, ruthless young man who’s an order mage of great power. The previous Beltur books were ‘The Mongrel Mage’ and ‘Outcasts […]

The Mongrel Mage (The Recluse Saga book 19) by L.E. Modesitt, Jr. (book review).

‘The Mongrel Mage’ is the 19th novel in the on-going ‘The Recluse Saga’ but you don’t have to read the other eighteen to follow it. Even so, I imagine that most people who buy this book will have some of the others and at least understand Modesitt’s magical system of order and chaos. Essentially, order […]

Assassin’s Price (The Eleventh Book of The Imager Portfolio) by L.E. Modesitt, Jr (book review).

Another damned thick book. Always scribble, scribble, scribble! Huh, Mister Modesitt? Like Edward Gibbon, L.E. Modesitt, Jr. writes long books, also of a historical nature except his are fantasy. ‘Assassin’s Price’ is the 11th book in ‘The Imager Portfolio’ and I’ve read every one of them. Imagers are men and women with a kind of […]

Treachery’s Tools : the Tenth Book of the Imager Portfolio by L.E. Modesitt, Jr. (book review).

‘Treachery’s Tools’ continues L.E. Modesitt Jr’s ‘Imager Portfolio’ series set on the continent of Solidar, on the world of Terahnar, though the planet’s name is seldom mentioned and if there are any other continents on it they haven’t come up yet. In previous books, the land has been united under a Rex Regis, thanks largely […]

The One-Eyed Man by L.E. Modesitt, Jr. (book review).

A couple of years ago I read ‘Adiamante’ by L.E. Modesitt, Jr and it was excellent. It was the first of his books I’d read and up to that point I hadn’t realised he wrote Science Fiction, having only seen his fantasy books in the past. ‘The One-Eyed Man’, subtitled ‘A Fugue, With Winds And […]

Death Rays And The Popular Media, 1876-1939 by William J. Fanning, Jr. (book review).

The kind of happy subject you want this time of year is ‘Death Rays And The Popular Media’. Specifically from their source between ‘1879-1939’ and as the sub-title goes, ‘A Study Of Directed Energy Weapons In Fact, Fiction And Film’. We are talking ray guns here, folks, and if you thought this was a modern […]

The Thin Black Line: Perspectives On Vince Colletta by Robert L. Bryant, Jr. (book review).

‘The Mystery of Vince Colletta! Hero or Villain? You decide!’ So says a dramatic, comic-style black box at the start of ‘Chapter 1: The Controversy.’ Other chapters are titled ‘Inking Asgard’, ‘Rivets And Trees’, ‘The Fourth World’ and ‘The Guy On The Assembly Line’. There’s an introduction with quotes from various debaters in an on-line […]
