Marseguro among L.E. Modesitt Jr.’s list of favorite books of 2008

Just found that over at Fantasy Book Critic, where they’ve asked a number of authors to talk about the year past and the year to come, L.E. Modesitt Jr. has listed Marseguro among his 2008 favorites (and thanks to Janet for spotting this for me). Modesitt writes (and, sigh, drops the last T on Willett, but oh, well):


“Other Times Than Peace”, a collection of military stories from Baen Books by David Drake, a classical scholar and former attorney who experienced war as a tanker, and whose stories about the dilemmas and problems soldiers face are always worth considering. “Marseguro”, a novel from DAW by Edward Willet that explores the collision of interstellar war/colonization, bioengineering, and fundamentalist human religion, and the consequences of extremism. “Galactic North”, a collection of works from Ace by Alastair Reynolds, with some chilling insights displayed in these short visions of the future.

NOTE: I originally thought it was Robert, host of the Fantasy Book Critic blog, who had listed Marseguro as a favorite; I’ve corrected the original post.

    You’re having one of those days, aren’t you? I think I’ll go have an identity crisis… ROFL

    Congrats anyway. That was pretty cool.
