Let’s do the time warp, again

If you one of those who missed last night’s Wild Party at Mysterious Galaxy in honor of the release of Trader’s Leap, the twenty-third novel of the Liaden Universe® created and written by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller — there’s good news!

Through the magic of the internet, and the kindness of Mysterious Galaxy bookstore, you can see how it all went down.

Trader’s Leap Book Party at Mysterious Galaxy!

OK! Trader’s Leap party tonight at Mysterious Galaxy 7 pm PACIFIC TIME. Steve Miller (who I can no longer link to, WTF Facebook?) and I will be reading from Trader’s Leap, talking about our books and the Interconnectedness of All Things, and answering questions.
 
If you’d like to attend the party, you need to sign up IN ADVANCE. I’ll put the link for instructions at the bottom of this post, after I say two more things.  OK, three more things.
 
1. This platform is not one we’ve used before, so if the instructions don’t work for you, you need to ping Mysterious Galaxy.
 
2. Yes, I’m aware that my name is misspelled.
 
3. If you can’t get to the live jam tonight, we’re told that it will be posted to YOUTUBE so that you can see it all as it happened, later.

Trader’s Leap is shipping and! Ambient Conditions Update

Don Blyly at Uncle Hugos Bookstore is working from home after his store was burnt out.  He tells us that the exclusive to the Uncles signed-via-tipped-in-sheets Trader’s Leap, the twenty-third novel of the Liaden Universe® by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, has arrived and is being shipped as he has time — he’s already packed some Canadian orders as well as a bunch of US orders.

The official publication date for Leap is December 1, but since Baen doesn’t usually embargo books (and Don’s house can only hold so many books) he’s going ahead now. He mentions that he has more than enough for the 150 or so pre-orders, and he’ll ship new orders first-come basis after the pre-orders are done.  If you haven’t yet ordered your signed edition of Trader’s Leap, now is the hour.  Here’s your link.

Pre-order signed copies of Trader’s Leap from the Uncle

Uncle Hugo’s is ready to accept your pre-orders for signed (but not personalized*) copies of Trader’s Leap.

Here’s your link

*For those who missed the news, Uncles Hugo and Edgar burned to the ground in the recent rioting in Minneapolis.  Store owner Don Blyly will be mailing the signed books from his apartment.  The only way this could be made to work at all was to ask Baen to do a limited run of Trader’s Leap hardcovers with pages pre-signed by Lee and Miller bound in.  This method is known in the industry as “tipped in,” which you will see in the book description when you click that link above.

The Wrong Lance by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller is available for pre-order in the Ithing store, Kindle, Kobo and Nook stores. Order today if you like. This is the out-take of material originally written for but then not used for Accepting the Lance, and thus is non-canon…

YES, it will be available from Baen, on October 27. Baen is not able to do pre-orders for Pinbeam Books. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

A paper edition may happen — we’re still trying to figure this out. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
