This is the eighteenth novel detailing the adventures of Clan Korval and other residents of the Liaden Universe®.
The hardcover will be in bookstores in June 2015. For those who treasure a passion for eArcs, count backward four months from June for your probable release date. No word yet on whether there will be an audiobook edition.
More news as it becomes available.
So, where are you going to be next Saturday?
We’re going to be hanging with the cool kids in Boothbay Harbor.
We’ve had a busy few days here in the wilds of Maine. Not only have we arrived at an agreement for Liaden Universe Companion #3 — but Audible is putting Fledgling on a this week only sale…
You only have until Saturday, May 17 http://www.audible.com/pd/Sci-Fi-Fantasy/Fledgling-Audiobook/B008YL6CDG?source_code=SCLGB907YWS102913 to get Fledgling for $3.95!
While we’re working on the still untitled first-of-five Liaden novels under contract we’re still watching — and experiencing! — as the rest of the Liaden Universe expands.
If you haven’t bookmarked and checked on Splinter Universe you may want to go there and do that, because — well, see this: “Code of Honor” is up now.
The site itself is at http://splinteruniverse.com
We’ve published a new Liaden Universe® story over at the Splinter Universe site — look for “Roving Gambler” along with other splinters and stories. We’ll be updating that site more regularly now — watch for some spoken word reprises of older (non-Liaden) Lee & Miller fiction starting soon. You can help support these efforts — you’ll see donation buttons on the stories and in the margins there.
Coming up this summer, Lee & Miller will be attending DetCon 1 — this years NASFIC or North American Science Fiction Convention. That’ll be in July, and we expect to have an evening Liaden party, autograph, have Friends of Liad breakfast, and read from works in progress — as well as be on panels and wander the wonders of the convention. Our Splinter Universe site helps support our travel to meet fans around the US.
Meanwhile, if you’ve got questions or think you may have missed a story, there are two sites to check out. One is the Liaden Universe® Wiki, a fan organized and run site with all kinds of Liaden information. If you want to get answers to mysteries, or to help solve questions for others, that’s a great place to visit. The other place is Pinbeam Books, where there’s a list of the available Lee & Miller chapbook releases in ebook format. We don;t sell from that site — but it tells you what’s available and where to get it — Amazon, B&N/Nook, or Smashwords.
Now through February 19, 2014, Audible is selling Agent of Change and Crystal Soldier, among other fine “first books” for only $4.95. Go here, and check it out!
Please feel free to pass this on to your friends!
For January we’ve added a new story to the line-up over at Splinter Universe — you can find it there now. We plan to add a story each month as well as the occasional guest story as well. The new story, “The Rifle’s First Wife” is a novelette of just over 13000 words and will be online for a few months. If you’d like to support these expanded efforts, read the story, and find a donate link at the end.
Meanwhile, as things stand now Sharon will not be at Boskone the weekend between Valentine’s Day and President’s Day, but Steve will. Look for a Friends of Liad Breakfast, probably Saturday February 15 in one of the hotel restaurants. Steve had a full slate of program items, a reading, signing and kaffeeklatsch on schedule.
