Описание:
Лиланд Экстон Модезитт (подписывается как Л. Э. Модезитт-мл., полное имя — Лиланд Экстон Модезитт-младший / Leland Exton Modesitt, Jr.; р. 19 октября 1943 г.) - американский писатель-фантаст.
Закончил «Williams Collegе» с твердым убеждением, что поэзия — верх искусства, а фэнтези и фантастика — полнейшая ерунда. Теперь он считает это самым забавным своим юношеским заблуждением.
Модезитт работал и курьером, и спасателем, и добровольным ди-джеем на радио, служил морским пехотинцем, банковским аналитиком, агентом по недвижимости, аналитиком на избирательной кампании, помощником по законодательству и управляющим американского конгрессмена, директором по законодательству и отношениям в Управлении по охране окружающей среды в Конгрессе США, консультантом по экологии в коммуникационной компании и лектором в колледже, ну а по совместительству — писателем.
Наряду с фантастическими романами им написано множество технических книг и статей, большинство с довольно скучными названиями и без единой рифмованной строчки! Первый его рассказ был издан в 1973 году.
Мистер Модезит сумел выдержать воспитание восьмерых детей, с их нежностями к различным грызунам, например, к сиамскому кролику, и коричневому лабрадору. Началось это в 1989 году, когда, закончив карьеру политика в Вашингтоне, он переселился в Нью-Хэмпшир, где и женился. Со своей женой Кэрол и детьми в 1993 году он переехал в штат Юта, где она работает, а он продолжает управлять домашним хаосом! Ну и попутно создавать новые книги.

I


GROWING UP, I always wondered why everything in Wandernaught seemed so dull. Not that I minded the perfectly baked bread routinely produced by my father or by Aunt Elisabet, and I certainly enjoyed the intricately carved toys and other gifts that Uncle Sardit miraculously presented on my birthday or on the High Holidays.
Perfection, especially for a youngster learning about it from cheerfully sober adults, has a price. Mine was boredom, scarcely novel for a young man in the middle of his second decade. But boredom leads to trouble, even when things are designed to be as perfect as possible. Of course, the perfection and striving for perfection that marked the island, though some would term Recluce a smallish continent, had a reason. A good reason, but one hardly acceptable to a restless young man.
“Perfection, Lerris,” my father repeated time after time, “is the price we pay for the good life. Perfection keeps destruction away and provides a safe harbor for the good.”
“But why? And how?” Those were always my questions.
Finally, shortly after I finished the minimum formal schooling, in my case at fifteen, my mother entered the discussion.
“Lerris, there are two fundamental forces in life, and in nature. Creation and destruction. Creation is order. We attempt to maintain it—”
“You sound just like Magister Kerwin…‘Order is all that keeps chaos at bay…because evil and chaos are so closely linked, one should avoid all but the most necessary acts of destruction…’ I know perfection is important. I know it. I know it! And I know it! But why does it have to be so flaming boring?”
She shrugged. “Order is not boring. You are bored with order.” She looked at my father. “Since you are bored with us, and since you are not quite ready for the possibility of undertaking the dangergeld, how would you like to spend a year or so learning about woodworking with your Uncle Sardit?”
“Donara?” asked my father, obviously questioning my mother’s volunteering of his sister’s husband.
“Sardit and I have talked it over, Gunnar. He’s willing to take on the challenge.”
“Challenge?” I blurted. “What challenge? I can learn anything…”
“For about the first three weeks,” my father commented.
“It’s not as though you will ever be a master woodworker, Lerris,” added mother. “But the general skills and discipline will come in useful when you undertake your dangergeld.”
“Me? Why would I ever go tramping off through the wild lands?”
“You will.”
“Most assuredly.”

DAEDALUS BASE
23 MARCH 2114

Alayna Wong-Grant turned her head from the screen wall that could hold more than a dozen displays at once and glanced down at the antique console before her that contained the controls for COFAR—the Combined Farside Array, both the sprawling radio telescope whose rows of polyimide film and its embedded dipole antennas stretched over most of the comparatively flat surfaces of Daedalus Crater and the fifteen-meter optical mirror, if a dish created from powdered lunar regolith, nanitic epoxy, and sprayed aluminum with a limited range of movement could accurately be called a mirror, unlike the ten-meter liquid mercury mirror that it had replaced some twenty years earlier and that had never worked as designed. While those were the main components, COFAR also had a separate dedicated full-spectrum solar optical array as well as the requisite spectrographic and interferometry capabilities.
“Dr. Wong-Grant, image processing is completed for sectors four through seven, with complete comparison to February nineteenth.” The AI’s voice was a pleasant baritone, one of the first changes Alayna had made after arriving at Daedalus. Luis had programmed the AI with what he must have thought was a sexy and husky alto that had grated on Alayna’s nerves with every word uttered. He’d also called the AI “Marcelina.” She’d shortened it to Marcel.
“Thank you, Marcel.” Her words were not quite perfunctory as she scanned the messages that had piled up while she’d slept, not that she slept all that much during the two-week-long Farside night, since that was the most valuable observational time, and there were seemingly always schedule changes, particularly for the optical telescope. With the heavier usage then, there were also always minor maintenance problems, and given the charges users incurred for every minute of observational time, and the precarious financial position of the Farside Foundation, sleep came second to accommodating schedule changes and getting the comparatively few repairs made. Her eyes continued to travel down the message queue, although she knew that Marcel would have awakened her earlier had there been anything truly urgent.
