After spending years writing poetry, political speeches and analyses, as well as economic and technical reports on extraordinarily detailed and often boring subjects, I finally got around to writing my first short story, which was published in 1973. I kept submitting and occasionally having published stories until an editor indicated he'd refuse to buy any more until I wrote a novel. So I did, and it was published in 1982, and I've been writing novels -- along with a few short stories -- ever since.If you want to know more, you can visit my website at www.lemodesittjr.com.

I have very little good to say about Solar Express, so let me start and end with something positive. It seems obvious that L.E. Modesitt is very intelligent and has a great passion for writing. Lots of people have positive things to say about his works, which include fantasy and science fiction. I h...

There are some actors who it is said can make it a pleasure to listen to ANYTHING, be it the phone book or the part of The Book of Numbers that reads: The Israelites set out from Ramses and encamped at Succoth.
