The mass market paperback edition of SALVAGE RIGHT will be published on April 30, 2024, and will be available at your favorite bookstore.

The 26th novel set in the Liaden Universe®, RIBBON DANCE will be published in hardcover and ebook editions on June 24, 2024, and will be available from All of the Usual Suspects.

RIBBON DANCE is the direct sequel to 2020’s TRADER’S LEAP, following the continuing efforts of Master Trader Shan yos’Galan to open new and profitable trade routes for Clan Korval.

The blurb: On a world where cake is a necessity, it takes the Grid to protect the civilized and the deaf from the dire influences of the ambient and to keep the chaotic Haosa at bay.

Having arrived at recently Dust-bound Colemeno, Trader Padi yos’Galan is essential to Master Trader Shan yos’Galan’s plan to recoup Korval’s clan fortunes by establishing new routes for the clan’s tradeship. Shan’s inner Healer insists Padi come to terms with her as-yet unplumbed psychic abilities, which might place her in the top tier of dramliz, if she can learn control.

Padi yearns to concentrate on trade, but Colemeno’s fey ambient and deadly long-term politics combine to bring her face-to-face with the Haosa, and in particular with the mysterious and untouchable Tekelia, as Korval’s trade mission’s necessity of a port audit collide with a cruel history of murder, deception, and brutality. Amid the dangers, Padi unexpectedly finds herself eagerly exploring her dramliz side when faced with the unspoken powers of the ambient, the sky-filling energy of the ribbon dance, and Tekelia’s mutable eyes.

    I am 73 years old and reading your books makes me feel like I’m 23. I can’t get any more thankful than that!

  • Beth  says:

    So glad to hear that Eileen Stevens is on the case! We are huge fans of your work, and have every book in print (multiples!) and all the audiobooks as well. We re-read your universe from the beginning leading up to each new major release (and sometimes just because we miss everyone) — can’t even guess at how many times we’ve done that now! And like with any masterwork, the experience only gets more nuanced and layered with each return.
