Cover to Cover #143: L. E. Modesitt, Jr / Michael Pederson

Ordermaster L. E. Modesitt, Jr.
We're happy to welcome back L. E. Modesitt, Jr. (we call him Lee) as he talks about Ordermaster, his 13th title in the Saga of Recluse series. We say "series" loosely, as it's not necessary to read the other 12 stories to enjoy this one. And speaking of accessibility, Lee writes complete stories, with working politics, economics and other systems of support which underline the world. You know... complete!

Michael Pederson Michael is the brain behind Nth Degree - the Fiction and Fandom 'Zine. They've been publishing for three years now, focusing on new fiction and news from the fandom world (as you might gather from the title.)
