Liaden Universe® InfoDump No. 116

I think we managed to publish two different InfoDumps number 114, so I’m setting this one at 116 on the dial.


Sleeping with the Enemy, Adventures in the Liaden Universe(R) Number 22, has been published at Amazon, BN, ibooks, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Tolino, 24Symbols.  Sleeping contains two stories — “Chimera,” which was originally published on, and “Friend of a Friend,” which is new to this chapbook.  The chapbook also includes an author’s introduction.


The long-promised podcast demonstrating the authors’ pronunciation of some key words and names in the Liaden Universe(R) is now live!  Well.  At least one of the authors, and the first of what looks to be several podcasts.  You can listen here:  http://splinteruniverse...
