Description

For over a thousand years, Order and Chaos have molded the island of Reduce. The Saga of Reduce chronicles the history of this world through eighteen books, L. E. Modesitt, Jr.'s longest and bestselling fantasy series. Reduce Tales Stories from the World of Reduce collects seventeen new short stories and four popular reprints spanning the thousand-year history of Reduce. First time readers will gain a glimpse of the fascinating world and its complex magic system, while longtime readers of the series will be treated to glimpses into the history of the world. Modesitt's essay "Behind the 'Magic' of Reduce" gives insight into his thoughts on developing the magical system that rules the Island of Reduce and its surrounding lands, while "The Vice Marshal's Trial" takes the reader back to the first colonists on Reduce. Old favourites "Black Ordermage" and "The Stranger" stand side-by-side with thrilling new stories.
