MORE ADVENTURES IN THE LIADEN UNIVERSE(R)
Earlier this month, Due Diligence: Adventures in the Liaden Universe(R) No. 24 was published as an ebook, and, a few days later, in response to, er, an outpouring of requests, as a paper book.  Ebook editions are available at Baen Ebooks (in all formats known to man); Amazon (kindle); BN (epub); Kobo; iBooks, &c.  The paper edition of this book is ONLY AVAILABLE THROUGH AMAZON.

Change Management:  Adventures in the Liaden Universe(R) Number 23, which was published as an ebook earlier this year, is also now available as a print book FROM AMAZON ONLY.

We will -- SLOWLY -- be offering the rest of the Adventures in the Liaden Universe(R) backlist in paper.  They will all be available, when they are available, from Amazon ONLY.

PATREON
Sadly, we have fallen behind the rather ambitious schedule we set for ourselves.  We are in the process of rethinking the schedule into a promise we can keep, and hope to resume reading stories for your listening pleasure realsoonnow.

For those who have not yet listened to the stories that are on offer, here's your link (only Patreon subscribers may listen):  https://www.patreon.com/leeandmiller

UPCOMING PUBLICATIONS
Alliance of Equals will be released from Baen as a mass market paperback on August 29.

Lee and Miller will see short story "Dawn's Early Light," published in All Hail Our Robot Conquerors, from Zombies Need Brains LLC, in August.  "Dawn..." is a new story.

Baen has commissioned a short story in support of Neogenesis, to be published to Baen.com in mid-December.

Neogenesis, formerly Fourth of Five, will be published as a hardcover and as an ebook on January 2, 2018.  We assume that there will be an audio edition, but we have not heard that this is so.  Those who indulge in eArcs should start cruising the Baen website in early November.

Original Lee and Miller story, "Excerpts from Two Lives," will be published in the Baen anthology Ship of the Line, to be published in 2018.

Also!  Look for the Agent of Change 30th anniversary edition from Baen in 2018!

CHANGE MANAGEMENT: ADVENTURES IN THE LIADEN UNIVERSE® NUMBER 23
Brand-new eChapbook Change Management is now available for download from Amazon, BN, iBooks, Kobo, 24Symbols, Page Foundry, Scribd, and Tolino.  Baen Ebooks will be offering the new book in their Pinbeam Books catalog, realsoonnow.
Description of the book follows:
Times are perilous, violence rife, and the future uncertain. Success and the survival of all you hold dear may hinge on how you manage change. Some people advise that we “Embrace Change!” Other people realize that change has edges, and if you embrace it the wrong way, it may feel a lot more like a knife than a bromide when it touches your guts. Here are two Lee and Miller stories set in the Liaden Universe®, "Street Cred," original to this chapbook; and "Wise Child," reprinted from Baen.com. Both stories deal with the complications arising from decisive change, and decisive Change Management at the point of peril.
PRE-ORDER SIGNED HARDCOVER COPIES OF THE GATHERING EDGE
Uncle Hugo is now accepting pre-orders for signed and/or personalized copies of The Gathering Edge, the 20th novel of the Liaden Universe® created by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller many, many years ago when they should have been doing more productive things.  Instructions are at the link.  It will help you to recall going in that "personalization" means "In addition to their names, the authors will write something you have specifically requested that they write in your book."  It is also well to remember that the authors reserve the right to NOT include a particular personalization if it offendeth them for any reason. There is no appeal from the authors' judgment in this.

Pre-orders for personalizations will be taken until April 1

THIS IS YOUR LINK TO PRE-ORDER SIGNED AND/OR PERSONALIZED COPIES

GATHERING EDGE EARC NOW AVAILABLE FROM BAEN EBOOKS
The eArc of The Gathering Edge is now available from Baen ebooks, and only from Baen ebooks.  Frequent visitors to this blog will recall that there is a three-way wager regarding the eArc going on, between Belle, Sprite, and me. Here are the particulars.  The eArc will be available until and only until, the hardcover goes on sale, in May.

AND! WATCH THE SKIES!
It is a fact little realized that Agent of Change, the very first Liaden novel written, was published as a Paperback Original by Del Rey Books in 1988.  It was followed, latter in 1988, and in late 1989 by Conflict of Honors and Carpe Diem, also Paperback Originals.

This is important for a couple of reasons.

First! Publication in 1988 means that! in 2018, the Liaden Universe® will be 30 years old.

Second! In all that time, and through all the various shufflings and republishings of the various Liaden novels the first three have never been published as single hardcovers.

Third! Baen will be celebrating Thirty Years of Liad starting with a hardcover reprinting -- the very first hardcover printing! -- of Agent of Change in the spring of 2018, with Conflict and Carpe to follow.

Watch the skies for more details.

Publication Date for Alliance of Equals
The Question that Ate October, here at our email boxes and around the web, is: When will the next Liaden novel come out?  Can I get an eArc?  Sample chapters?  Something?

The Answer to this question is:  Alliance of Equals, the nineteenth novel-length adventure in the Liaden Universe®, aka "the book after Dragon in Exile" is scheduled to be released in hardcover on July 5, 2016.

And, in an attempt to forestall the Inevitable:  Baen makes the eArc editions of novels, if any, available somewhere between two to three months ahead of the hardcover publication.  So, you’re looking. . .April/May 2016 for the Alliance of Equals eArc.

Mass Market Edition of Dragon in Exile
Baen will be releasing the paperback edition of Dragon in Exile, which was published in hardcover on June 2, 2015, in June, 2016.

The Gathering Edge
The Gathering Edge is the title of the Liaden Universe® novel that comes after Alliance of Equals.  Sharon and Steve are in the process of writing this novel even now. It is due on our publisher's desk on February 15, 2016.  We do not (that's DO NOT) have a publication date for this title.

Hey, Wanna Get Mugged?
The Liaden Universe® store over at Offworld Designs is now offering Liaden Universe® coffee mugs, in addition to tree-and-dragon denim, polo, and t-shirts.  Mugs and shirts make great gifts! Here's your link.

Do It Like A Delm
The Do It Like a Delm contest was a huge success, and a lot of fun, too!  If you missed the entries, take a look, starting here.

Trivia Isn't Trivial
Sharon and Steve are working in a universe more than a couple million words old, and strive for consistency. That means they often need to recall details like "What does a pre-Exodus Yxtrang salute look like" or "Is Miri left-handed?" or maybe "What's the name of the ship that didn't fire on Cantra when...." While you may see a quick question from the authors on Facebook, far more often they're referring to that resource that both you and they can use -- The Liaden Wiki. Not only can you use it, but you can contribute to it by creating or updating pages and sections. Got a head for ship names or planets or want to be sure the language is right?  The Liaden Wiki is one way you can show off and also help keep the stories -- and entire universes! -- on the right  track!  Go here to see the 105 pages already in place.

HERE'S YOUR LINK TO PRE-ORDER FROM UNCLE HUGO'S

Baen Writes Contract for Two More Liaden Novels
Toni Weisskopf, publisher and woman of all work at Baen Books, has contracted for two additional Liaden Universe® novels, to be handed in during 2018/2019. These two novels are in addition to the Five Book Dash, of which Dragon in Exile is First (of Five) and Alliance of Equals is Second.  Lee and Miller are calling these two newly contracted novels, the Mask Books, for Reasons.

This means that there are currently six more Liaden books in your (and our) future.  If you see Toni at a con, or online, or, yanno, at the grocery store -- be sure to thank her for supporting your reading habit.

Shan and Priscilla Ride Again
We have posted, on Splinter Universe, an introduction to, and two outtake chapters from, Shan and Priscilla Ride Again, a Liaden novel which was never finished, though it was written out to 15 chapters (about 22,000 words).  Here are your links:

Introduction

Outtake Chapters

For the next 16 weeks (aka through August 3, with one week off (the week of June 8) because, Book Tour), we will be posting a chapter from Shan and Priscilla Ride Again on Splinter Universe.  The reason it's 16 weeks for 15 chapters is because there is a prologue, which we will post next Monday, April 13.

Lee and Miller Commit Patreon
Over the years lots of you have asked us for a mechanism to show extra support for what we do, to avoid the necessity of our taking time and energy away from our writing when the slings and arrows of coincidence, cat illnesses, people illnesses, and even car breakdowns.

At one point in our career, we thanked folks, and said we're OK, we've got SRM Publisher to help us through. That's because SRM's purpose was to fill-in the cash flow freelancers see, which comes in lumps (or sometimes even big lumps) a few times a year and which then leave in big lumps to pay the bills that have accumulated during the in-betweens. But SRM closed because of Steve's medical issues that ended up with an ICD implant and a long recovery period. Alas, those sling and arrows of life, didn't stop.

We've had a few readers and fans recognize that situation, and volunteer to support us with a few extra dollars through a monthly direct Paypal donation, or through the mail. Others of our readers participate through our Splinter Universe offerings -- again, some on a per story basis, some through a scheduled donation.

In the face of our house-hunt and approaching deadlines on a whole bunch of books, we finally agreed to test the waters of a more formal crowd-funded system, since we can't **always** come up with a story, chapter or splinter when we're in the midst of book stuff. So we're testing Patreon, a well-known system that in some ways is similar to Kickstarter -- but which doesn't need to meet a number of Kickstarter's not uncomplicated rules and assumptions.

If you'd like to kick in an extra $buck or two every month, you can help. We'll continue to feed Splinter Universe with odds and ends of things as we can and we'll be able to concentrate and knock down the medical bills and the cat bills and car replacement bills along the way while having a clearer idea of how much house we should be looking for -- it might even help us move closer to the ocean!

Here's where you go for details, and to sign on to Patreon. https://www.patreon.com/leeandmiller

If instead you'd like to send direct via Paypal you can do that too -- see the links at Splinter Universe (add links), and if you prefer a snailmail connection -- we're at Steve Miller, PO Box 1586, Waterville, ME 04903 ... thanks!

LEE AND MILLER REGRET
Sharon and Steve are very sorry to have to cancel out of Boskone and SasQuan.  The reasons are complex, having to do with a challenging combination of financial, time, and health resources.  We're not happy about this, but -- our health comes first, as do the two Liaden books that are to be delivered in 2015.

NOTE:  We are, with appropriate time to schedule and prepare, available to Skype to conventions and/or fan gatherings.  Please write to Steve via Facebook or at kinzelATkorvalDOTcom if you would like to coordinate a Skype event.

BOOK TOUR DISTANT EARLY WARNING
In early June, Baen will be sending Steve and Sharon on a Northeast book tour in support of Dragon in Exile, the 18th novel of the Liaden Universe(R).  More details as they are forthcoming.

WE HAD FUN AT PHILCON
We had a great time as Principal Speakers at PhilCon, in mid-November. Thanks to the ConCom for inviting us; for all the folks who stopped to talk with us; and the stuffies who made it their business to attend the Teddy Bear Tea.  Also, a special shout-out to Gene Olmstead, for his outstanding assistance with the Teddy Bear Tea, elevating what we expected to be a pleasant, low-key gathering into one of the High Points of the Season.

For those who were not able to come to PhilCon, the text of our Guest of Honor speech may be read here:  http://korval.com/2014/11/28/lee-and-millers-philcon-principal-speaker-speech-in-its-entirety/

ARCHERS BEACH NEWS
Carousel Seas, the final book in the Archers Beach trilogy, was published on January 6, 2015, and is now available as a trade paperback; an ebook; and an audiobook!  In addition, signed copies of the trade paperback, as well as other Lee, and Lee-and-Miller novels, are available from Uncle Hugo's SF Bookstore in Minneapolis.  Uncle Hugo's does mail order around the world. Here's your link:  http://www.unclehugo.com/prod/ah-lee-miller.php

Also!  Archers Beach novelette, "The night don't seem so lonely," has been published at Baen.com, where you may read it for free.  Here's the link:  http://www.baen.com/The_night_dont_seem_so_lonely.asp

PODCASTS
Sharon recently chatted with Baen editor Tony Daniel about Carousel Seas and the Archers Beach Trilogy, here:  http://baen.com/podcast/mp3/Baen-Free-Radio-Hour-2015-01-02-Sharon-Lee-Magic-39.mp3

Steve and Sharon talk about A Liaden Universe® Constellation Volume 2, here:  http://www.baen.com/podcast/mp3/Baen-Free-Radio-Hour-2014-02-07-Lee-Miller-Shadow-47.mp3

Check out the other many fine podcasts with Baen authors here:  http://baen.com/podcast/podcast.asp

EYE CANDY
For those who missed it, and for those who would like to see it again, here's the link to David Mattingly's cover for Dragon in Exile:  http://korval.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/DragonInExileFinal_Flat.jpg

We're told by those who read kanji and Turkish that the two signs on the sides of the alley read: The Dragon in Exile; and The Dragon is in the Coffeehouse.  Which is really going the extra mile.  And, yes, there is a cat in the painting, as always.

Those who would like a print of this cover art (and, also, possibly of others of the Mattingly covers), write to David Mattingly at davidATmattinglyDOTcom.

SILLY SEASON
Award Season is upon us, where authors point to their work published in the previous year, and ask readers to remember those works when it comes time to vote on the Nebulas, Hugos, and other awards and best-of lists that are coming up.

Lee and Miller had published several novelettes in 2014.  Here are the titles, and the links, so that you may read, or re-read, the work:

LIADEN WIKI NEEDS YOU
In case you haven't noticed, Gus Fleischman and various other volunteers have been building a wiki designed especially for those interested in things Liaden. You can find it here:
http://liaden.wikia.com/wiki/Liaden_Wiki  ; and you'll see it covers such things as a timeline, names, bows, and more – lots more – there are 75 pages worth so far. If there's something you'd like to see (Is there a section on weaponry? How about a list of planets? What food (if any) has been named?) you can add it, help beef up what's there, or make a request to your friends. If you've always wanted to reach out to other Friends of Liad, this is a good place to start!

PhilCon, Here We Come!
Sharon Lee and Steve Miller will be Principal Speakers at the 78th celebration of PhilCon, sharing the stage with Bob Eggleton and Kyle Cassidy. PhilCon will be held from November 21-23 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Here's your link.

Audio Edition of Carousel Sun now Available!
The Audible edition of Carousel Sun, the second book in Sharon Lee's Archers Beach trilogy, is now available! Here's your link.

Preorder signed and/or personalized copy of Carousel Seas from the Uncle!
If you would like a signed and/or personalized copy of the trade paperback edition of CAROUSEL SEAS -- the THIRD book in Sharon Lee's Archers Beach trilogy -- which will be published in January 2015 (that's ONLY FOUR MONTHS from now!) here's how to make that happen. Notice that there is a DEADLINE involved, so order early and often.

* You may now pre-order a signed copy of Carousel Seas from Uncle Hugo’s Bookstore via this link.

*You may also, for a limited time, have your pre-ordered signed book *personalized.* “Personalized” means you ask the author to write something special on the title page in addition to their name. These can be as simple as, “To Marge,” and as complex as “To Marge in memory of that night in Seattle.” *Fair Warning*: I, as the Signing Author reserve the right not to inscribe a book with a personalization I find to be, in my sole judgment: (1) offensive, (2) too long, (3) anything else. You will use the Special Instructions box on the order form to write out your personalization — Please check your spelling, ’cause I’m going to assume that you’ve typed it out exactly as you want it.

**There is a deadline involved* if you want your pre-ordered signed copy of Carousel Seas *personalized*. That *deadline is November 15, 2014*. So you need to do this now.

*There will only be a limited number of signed copies of /Carousel Seas/ available, they will only be available through Uncle Hugo’s SF Bookstore in Minneapolis. The exact number of signed copies available depends upon how many are pre-ordered. So, sooner is better than later to order, if you want a signed copy.

**Here's that link again.

Thanks very much for your interest and support.

*SIGNED AND PERSONALIZED CAROUSEL SUN AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER*
The following message from the Uncle has just arrived:

/We've arranged for our order of Carousel Sun by Sharon Lee (sequel to Carousel Tide) to be shipped from the bindery to the author for signature and then shipped on to us. If you pre-order a copy before the end of December and request a personalization as well as a signature, we'll try to arrange it. The book won't be shipped until around the end of January or beginning of February, and you can continue to order a signed copy until we're sold out. But if you wait until January to order a copy, you won't get a personalized copy. (Yes, we still have signed hardcover copies of the last 2 Liaden Universe® novels by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller.) The link to all the signed Lee & Miller stuff is on the Browse Our New Books page./
/Best regards,/
/Don Blyly/
/Uncle Hugo's Science Fiction Bookstore/

*Here's the bullet-point version:*

1. You may now pre-order a signed copy of /Carousel Sun/ from Uncle Hugo's Bookstore via this link: http://www.unclehugo.com/prod/ah-lee-miller.php
<http://www.unclehugo.com/prod/ah-lee-miller.php>

2. You may also, for a limited time, have your pre-ordered signed book *PERSONALIZED.* "Personalized" means you ask the author to write something special on the title page //in addition to// their name. These can be as simple as, "To Marge," and as complex as "To Marge in memory of that night in Seattle." Fair Warning: As the Signing Author, Sharon reserves the right //not// to inscribe a book with a personalization she finds to be, in her sole judgment: (1) offensive, (2) too long, (3) anything else. In such cases, she will sign your book -- period. You will use the Special Instructions box on the order form to write out your personalization -- /PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPELLING/, because Sharon is going to assume that you've typed it out /exactly/ as you want it.

3. **THERE IS A DEADLINE INVOLVED** if you want your pre-ordered signed copy of /Carousel Sun/ **personalized**. That deadline is *DECEMBER 31, 2013*. So you need to do this now.

4. There will only be a limited number of signed copies of /Carousel Sun/ available, they will only be available through Uncle Hugo's SF Bookstore in Minneapolis. The exact number of signed copies available depends upon how many are pre-ordered. So, sooner is better than later to order, if you want a signed copy.

5.HERE'S THE LINK AGAIN: http://www.unclehugo.com/prod/ah-lee-miller.php

6. The Uncle is doing me -- and you! -- a pretty substantial favor here, so please be courteous. And while you're at the Lee-and-Miller book page that the link above leads to, take a few minutes to look around.

Thank you for your interest and support.

Okey-dokey, then!  This is going to be chock-full of Stuff, so bear with me.  I'll try to break things out into Subjects, to make it easier to digest.

The 2013 Liaden Universe® World Tour and Trade Secret Push!

Steve and I want to thank everyone who made our book tour a reality: Baen publisher Toni Weisskopf; Corinda Carfora, the Baen publicist; our wonderful drivers, Jim and Aileen; photographer David Decker; and most especially the intrepid indie bookstore owners and staff who put themselves out to make us feel welcome: Tyler Stewart at Pandemonium; Brian and crew at Toadstool Books in Milford NH; Patty Cryan of Annie's Bookstop in Worcester;  Maria Perry of Flights of Fantasy; Joan Silvestro at Book Trader of Hamilton; and Thea Kotroba at the Chester County Book Company -- and the PR folks at the Burlington, Worcester, Holyoke, and UPenn Barnes and Noble Bookstores --

And! Everyone who came out to meet us, listened to us talk, asked questions, and got their books signed.  It was great to meet you, live and in person!

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

For those interested, there are pictures of the tour here.  We'll add more, as soon as we get them off Steve's camera.  Also!  If you have a picture from the tour that you'd like to see added to the album, email it to me at rolanniATGmailDOTcom, with your name and where it was taken.

We also want to thank PhilCon, for adding us to the list of panelists at what amounted to the Last Possible Second; especially Todd and Joanie Dashoff, and programming chair Hugh Casey.  We had a blast.

And we'd especially like to thank Robert the Red Cap at the 30th Street Station in Philadelphia, who sorted us out, got us to the train on time, made sure we were sitting on the right side, and wished us a safe trip back to Maine.

Also -- is that one badass angel overlooking that train station, or what?

One more stop on the Trade Secret tour

Steve and I will be talking sci-fi and signing books at Books-a-Million in South Portland, Maine, this Sunday, November 17, from 2-4 pm.  Here's a map, with phone number and address.  Hope to see you there!

Signed Trade Secrets on-hand at Uncle Hugos!

Uncle has fulfilled all preorders; and still has a few signed copies of Trade Secret in-hand, so if you missed getting a signed copy -- or if you'd like to give a signed copy as a Yule gift (books make wonderful presents!) -- you can still order from Uncle Hugo.  Here's the link.

Carousel Sun news!

For them what partakes, the eArc of Carousel Sun, sequel to Carousel Tides, is now available from Baen.  Here's the link.

The tradepaper edition of Carousel Sun will hit the shelves of your favorite bookstore in February 2014; the ebook, a few weeks earlier.  At this point, I have no news of an audio edition.

Now! Don Blyly of Uncle Hugo's and I are working out a system that will allow me to sign and personalize pre-ordered copies of Carousel Sun.  As soon as we have the bugs worked out, I'll give you the link, and instructions.  So, watch the skies.  Or the waves.  Or, yanno, both.

The Tomorrow Log coming from Audible!

Lee and Miller's The Tomorrow Log will be available from Audible.com on December 3, 2013, narrated By Kevin T. Collins.

Speaking of Audible. . .

You are of course aware that Every! Liaden Universe®! Novel! in existence can be downloaded as audiobooks from Audible.com.   Here's a link to the whole series.

Introduction to a book tour
Frequent auditors of this journal will recall that Lee and Miller will be embarking in the near future on a book tour. The complete tour schedule is reproduced at the end of this blog entry, for your convenience.

PLEASE NOTE that we have added one more stop, in Maine, at the end of the tour. We'll be signing, reading, talking and doing who knows what other crazy things at Books-a-Million on Sunday, November 17, from 2-4 p.m.

Also! We will be documenting the bookstore. Look for commentary at www.korval.com, and photos at http://www.pinterest.com/rolanni/2013-liaden-universe-world-tour/

Please feel free to distribute the schedule below wherever it may be of interest.


Clarifying the book tour

We'd like to take just a moment to clarify something about the book tour. The tour is in support of a few things: Lee & Miller, the Liaden Universe®, Baen -- but it is in Direct Support of Trade Secret, the 17th novel in the Liaden Universe® which, yes, is scheduled to be "published" on November 5.

There seems to be a little bit of confusion regarding this word "published," which more correctly ought to be rendered, "available in bookstores."

See, the books have already been "published," which in this usage means "printed." We know this because Steve and Sharon received their authors' copies a week or so ago. This means that, even now, there are Trade Secrets in the S&S warehouse, and Trade Secrets on their way to distributors, and Trade Secrets directly on their way to bookstores. . .

. . .and Trade Secrets on their way, via the Sekrit Publicist Underground, directly to all of the stores where we will be signing, and! to the nice folks who will be escorting us during the various stages of our tour.

Which is the long way of saying that, Yes, Trade Secret will be on hand at our signings -- even those signings that happen before November 5 -- and if you come to one of our signings, you will be able to buy a book and see us sign it for you in front of your very eyes.

Which, you gotta admit, is kind of cool.

*Free Liaden Universe® Story

One more reminder -- "Out of True," a Liaden Universe® short story will be available to read for! free! on the Baen front page, starting. . .call it mid-day, Eastern Daylight Time, on Tuesday, October 15. You will have to scroll down a bit (fiction on the Baen front page is published, as we used to say in the newspaper biz, "below the fold") to find it.

Speaking of Trade Secret. . .
. . .the eArc is now available in every format known to humankind, direct from Baen. Here's the link.

Remember that eArcs are uncorrected; expect spelling errors and grammatical atrocities of every stripe and patch; names may morph in the middle of the story; continuity may be found in disarray. You have been warned.

Will there be a Trade Secret Audiobook?
To the best of our knowledge, based on a conversation with Mr. Feldberg of Audible at the BEA -- yes, there will be an audiobook edition of Trade Secret, to be released simultaneously with the hardcover, in November.

Speaking of Audiobooks. . .
. . .we have here in our hands the contract for an audio edition of The Tomorrow Log. Details regarding publication date and narrator to come.

rolanni: (Tea and dragon)

Silver Anniversary!
The Liaden Universe® didn’t start out as a Universe; it started out as one book. That book, a quirky little space opera called Agent of Change, was published by Del Rey as a paperback original, in February, 1988.

Which is to say, twenty-five years ago, this February.

But, wait! There's more!

Not only is February 2013 the Silver Anniversary of the Liaden Universe®, but the sixteenth novel in the Universe, Necessity’s Child, will be released on February 5, in hardcover, signed hardcover, ebook, and audiobook!

Also?  Every single Liaden Universe® novel ever written is — at this very instant! — in print, as omnibus, hardcover, trade paper, mass market, ebook, and/or audiobook editions!

Having survived as writers for twenty-five years is an achievement by itself. To have all of our novels in print during that twenty-fifth year is. . .amazing. And humbling.

For those who are planning to attend Boskone, we’ll be hosting a dual Silver Anniversary/Book Launch party there. We’re also mulling over some web celebrations, because really — you’re only in print twenty-five
years once.

Help Build a Liaden Universe® Party Game
We would like to have available at least one Liaden-themed party game for the Big! Boskone Liaden Bash! Since there’s not likely to be enough space in the room to set up a Sticks table (never mind that I don’t
think Massachusetts law allows payouts), and competition knife-throwing is right out, we thought we’d have a basket full of quotations/brief passages available. The idea would be that a partier would pick up a piece of paper out of the basket, read the quote aloud, and the first person who identifies the book/story from which the quote is taken and/or the character speaking will win the adoration of the rest of the party goers. Rumor is that we may have prizes available to us, so there exists the chance of a quote-off, also.

So! We need your help. Post your favorite quote and source (note: I will really need the entire quote as it appears in the novel/story and the source) here.

The link takes you to a moderated forum. That means that a human being must clear your comment, so it may not appear immediately. Never fear, it will appear eventually.

Let the games begin! And thank you for your help!

About that 16th Novel in the Liaden Universe®
Signed copies of Necessity's Child are available for pre-order from Uncle Hugo's SF Bookstore in Minneapolis (they do mail order! worldwide!) -- here's your link -- and from your favorite online and indie bookstores.

Also! There will be an audiobook edition released concurrently with the hardcover, on February 5, from Audible.com. Here's that link.

And, of course, the ebook edition is available (as has always been the case) in multiple formats (including ePub/Nook) from Baen -- and, additionally, in Kindle format from Amazon.com.

Also Available from Uncle Hugo. . .
Signed copies of the hardcover editions of Ghost Ship and Dragon Ship. Use this link, and scroll down.

Liaden Story on Baen Website!  Mark your Calendars!
On Tuesday, January 15 (holy cheese! That's four days from now!), short story "Eleutherios" will be posted on the Baen website below the fold (just scroll down a little; you'll find it -- in fact there's a story by Wen Spencer up there right now, so you could practice, just to be sure you've got the technique down). The story may be read for free -- no donations, no log-ins, no sign-ups!

The Liaden Wiki Needs You!

Friend of Liad Gus Fleischmann took the initiative, and gathered the enormous amount of Liaden information that was all in pieces all over the web into the Liaden Wiki: http://liaden.wikia.com/wiki/Liaden_Wiki

The wiki is meant as a resource for readers (and for authors, too).

The material Gus gathered needs to be ordered, proofread, tweaked -- and added to! -- and for that, we need you. Please consider pitching in.

Thank you!

Publication Schedule
January 15: “Eleutherios,” short story, Baen front page
February 5: Necessity’s Child, hardcover, signed hardcover, ebook, audiobook
July 2: Liaden Universe® Constellation, Volume 1, tradepaper, ebook
August: Essay in Dragonwriter: A Tribute to Anne McCaffrey and Pern, Benbella Press
August 27: Dragon Ship, mass market
November 5:  Trade Secrets, hardcover, ebook
January 5, 2014:  Liaden Universe® Constellation, Volume 2, tradepaper, ebook

Delivery Schedule
February 14: Carousel Sun (contemporary fantasy by Sharon)
August 15: Carousel Seas (contemporary fantasy by Sharon)
May 15, 2014: First of Five Liaden Universe® novels
February 15, 2015: Second of Five Liaden Universe® novels
November 15, 2015: Third of Five Liaden Universe® novels
August 15, 2016: Fourth of Five Liaden Universe® novels
May 15, 2017: Fifth of Five Liaden Universe® novels

…please be aware that the above are turn-in dates; the publisher sets the publication dates and they are, therefore, A Mystery. One thing that we can say definitively is that the publisher will not publish any of the above novels before they’ve been turned in.

A Reminder About Those Five Liaden Novels. . .
. . .referenced above. Those five books, in their entirety, comprise the "sequel" to Dragon Ship. Yes, it IS complicated.

Where in the World Are Lee and Miller?
Boskone, February 15-17, 2013, Boston (http://www.nesfa.org/boskone/)

At this point, Steve and Sharon have no plans to attend either WorldCon nor DragonCon in 2013.
