Cover to Cover #80: L. E. Modesitt, Jr / Tee Morris

L.E. Modesitt, Jr.
Lee has been described as writing "fantasy with rivets." That comment comes from the incredible amount of realism and attention to details not often found in fantasy literature. His latest book, Darknesses, has plenty of fantastic creatures (like sheep from hell) and a focus on politics-- something quite common to Lee's writings.

Following close on the heels is The Ethos Effect, a work of science fiction. Again, Lee doesn't skimp over the economics or social structure, making this world very plausible. Don't think these details matter? Read one of Lee's books and find out for yourself.

Tee Morris
Tee joins Mike and Evo live in the studio! Visiting for the recent CopperCon, Tee talks a bit about a new book to which he contributed called The Complete Guide to Writing Fantasy. Tee wrote several chapters on the book, and anyone who is interested in writing should pick up a copy right away.

World Book Day 2012: Philippa Ballantine

Hunter and Fox

The books that inspired me as a teenager and still do to this day are the Chronicles of Morgaine by CJ Cherryh. Morgaine is a strong female character, that is incredibly forceful and determined. She felt more like Wuthering Heights Heathcliff—which was very unique to me since she is female. Her bondsman is Nhi Vanye who travels […]

World Book Day 2012: Brandy Grandberg

Several years ago I stumbled upon a book called Outlander written by Diana Gabaldon.  After receiving it in the mail, I gave the cover a quick glance over, and threw it aside.  I had no idea the tiny bit of treasure I had held in my hands.  After reading the first book, I was fully […]

World Book Day 2012: J. R. Blackwell

Understanding Comics by Scott McCloud changed the way I think about storytelling. Addressing story structure, character and the development of an artist, McCloud challenged the way I think about creating a story and how to approach the mediums I work within. His style is easy to follow, using words and pictures to convey complex ideas […]
