Accepting the Lance

Just a reminder that! Accepting the Lance, the twenty-second novel in the long-running and much-feted Liaden Universe® created and co-written by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, will be published in hardcover and ebook editions*on December 3, 2019.

Uncle Hugo’s SF Bookstore will once again be taking pre-orders for signed and/or personalized copies.  The order page will go live after Labor Day.

We know from the volume of email we’re getting that there’s a lot of pent-up demand for this title.  No, sorry, we cannot “push for an earlier release**,” nor are we open to “selling our draft.”  Waiting is, and patience definitely is.  December will happen soon enough.

However!  We have heard from an early reader of the book and we thought it only fair to share her reaction to it, so here you are:

REVISED News regarding Constellation Four preorders

REVISED NEWS you can use for folks who pre-ordered signed and/or personalized copies of Liaden Universe® Constellation Volume Four from Uncle Hugo’s!
 
The books sent out by the warehouse realized that they had been conditioned to do the will of Those Other Than Themselves, and went rogue.
 
As of this typing, the books have been re-acquired and brought back to a sense of proper unity and purpose.
 
However! They had strayed quite far from their mandated path before re-acquisition, and will therefore not raise the Cat Farm and Confusion Factory here in Maine until — next Wednesday.
 
Steve and I apologize for the delay, though as far as I can tell, there wasn’t anything we could have done to be certain it never occurred.

Update: Signed Constellation IVs from Uncle Hugo

News for those who pre-ordered signed and/or personalized copies of Liaden Universe® Constellation Volume Four from Uncle Hugo’s.

UPS tells us that five cases of this title will land on our doorstep tomorrow, Wednesday, May 29, sometime before 8 pm.

Steve and I will sign and/or personalize these books as quickly as we can without breaking a leg, or a wrist.

When we have finished signing the books, we will put them on a UPS truck to Minneapolis, so the Uncle can take care of the hard part of this transaction:  charging credit cards, and packing and shipping books.

We are at this point shooting for Friday as the day we will place the five cases of books on the UPS truck.  We would like that; it’s our goal.  But it may come about that the books will not leave us until Monday...
