A story about "Adiamante"

by L. E. Modesitt Jr.

In Adiamante, L.E. Modesitt Jr. has once again created a framework for introspection about society. How long will it take us to pay for our sins? Why do societies collapse? Will we ever learn from our mistakes? These questions and more painted against the backdrop of a post collapse earth. Almost no one creates worlds this complex, this rich, and this much fun, all while shining the harsh light of truth on our ugliest secrets.

A story about "Night Watch"

by Terry Pratchett
