New World Blues

Posted by spragujs on April 6, 2012

The Palencar Project cover artTor.com ran a series of 5 short stories based on a piece of art by John Jude Palencar in March, and this one in particular was written by L. E. Modesitt, Jr. whose Imager Portfolio novels I’ve been reading most recently.  “New World Blues” takes the picture in a completely different direction than I’d expected, and in so few words manages to imply a whole huge background of a universe as well as to empower a character.  It’s a quick, inspiring read, and I recommend it.

Read here for the story behind the collection, and go here to purchase an ebook of the 5 stories.
