LIFE-SUSPENSION

L. E. MODESITT, JR.

L. E. Modesitt is the bestselling author of the Saga of Recluse, the Spellsong Cycle, the Corean Chronicles, and several other series, as well as a number of standalone novels, such as The Eternity Artifact, The Elysium Commission, and a new book, Haze, thats due out in June. His short fiction has appeared in a number of anthologies, and was recently collected in Viewpoints Critical.

Life-Suspension is set in a future where interstellar travel is possible, but where there is warfare over who controls the lines of interstellar communication. Its a story that shows how thin the lines between all human passions are, especially in war, Modesitt said. I was a military pilot, and Ive tried to capture the feel of those situations, and the contrast between the times of action and the quiet civility of officers in between action.
