For over 1,000 years, Order and Chaos have molded the island of Recluce. The Saga of Recluce chronicles the history of this world through 18 books, L. E. Modesitt, Jr.'s longest and best-selling fantasy series. Recluce Tales: Stories from the World of Recluce collects 17 new short stories and four popular reprints spanning the thousand-year history of Recluce. First-time audiences will gain a glimpse of the fascinating world and its complex magic system, while longtime fans of the series will be treated to glimpses into the history of the world. Modesitt's essay "Behind the 'Magic' of Recluce" gives insight into his thoughts on developing the magical system that rules the Island of Recluce and its surrounding lands, while "The Vice Marshal's Trial" takes the listener back to the first colonists on Recluce. Old favorites, such as "Black Ordermage" and "The Stranger," stand side-by-side with thrilling new stories.
"Helpfully, the stories present in the internal chronological order in which they occur in the world of Recluce. . . . complex and satisfying . . . Modesitt is excellent company." (Kirkus)

Both are fabulous
He is Perfect with all the Recluce Saga books
If you haven't read (or listened to) the Recluce Saga- which, by the way, you should- this might not make sense to you. But for those of us who have been following L E Modesitt Jr through this wonderful adventure, RECLUCE TALES is fantastic.
P.S. The last story is amazingly poignant.
