. . .or possibly, DEconstruction Site.

I am in the process of taking down the older Splinters — and combining them into a single volume, tentatively entitled Splinter Universe Presents!  The First 17 Years!  Or some such.  This will make the site cleaner and more able to receive a Very Long Splinter that I have been contemplating posting for Some Time.

So!  Watch the Skies!  And if your favorite Splinter goes missing — know that it’s not gone forever.

Added today, the splinter entitled, Daav’s Leaving Town, with author commentary.

Enjoy!

Added today, the splinter entitled “Shan’s getting married,” with author comments.

The discovery of a small folder of short Liaden snippets from the mid-1980s has inspired a fit of housekeeping. We will be, over the next while, posting those snippets, with author commentary, here, so, yanno, watch the skies. Or this site, whichever works best for you.

In the meantime, in order to get my hand back into Splinter Universeing, a non-Liaden snippet from the same time period, indeed! found in the same folder — has been posted here.

Listen to Steve read Lee and Miller’s “A Choice of Weapons.”

Here’s your link.

With the Liaden Universe® World Tour getting on the road again — this time to visit the Pittsburgh area where we’ll be Guests of Honor at Confluence — you might miss us on FaceBook or some of our other social media outlets. While we hope you can catch us at the convention, if you can’t you can still catch up on a couple of Splinter Universe Live reading from the spring.

First, at least timewise, there’s A Gift of Music, as read by Sharon Lee, a story in Sharon’s Carousel Tides universe which appeared originally as a featured story on Baen.com.

Then, there’s Steve’s story Charioteer, which was his first published story in Amazing, sold to Ted White in the mid 70s — it appeared in late 1977 in what was officially the May 1978 issue.

Another story read by Sharon was the joint Lee-Miller Liaden Universe® story The Beggar King, in which Clarence O’Berin arrives on Liad under rather uncertain conditions.

We’re still working on a lot of backlog of stories we’d like to read for you — Sharon’s just added what she considers one of her favorite chapters ever out of the Liaden Universe® to the Patreon site (Chapter 3 of Mouse and Dragon) and it and the fun Liaden story “A Day At The Races” will be available from links here in the fall.

As always, if you want to show support for a particular story you can drop us a note or use the Paypal donate button on the left side of the page. We thank you for all your help!

Listen to Steve read Lee and Miller’s locked-room murder mystery, “A Night at the Opera.”  Here’s your link.

We continue to go through the Lee & Miller archives and as time permits will be adding old stories and splinters as we get to them. Here’s one that hasn’t been seen for awhile.

Running The Race was written by Steve and published in Dream Again: A Journal of Spirituality and Madness, back in 1995, as a follow-on for a workshop he did for his then job as Citizen Access Specialist for the Citizen Access Network . That basically meant he was  Sysop and Chief Trainer for the Maine Meeting Place BBS in its role as an attempted community center for people who, by the of their personal situation and issues, were living in isolation.  Some were physically disabled, some had mental health issues, and all needed a way to communicate.

Many of the participants in the workshop, which took place off-season at a well-known Maine winter resort, wrote or tried to write about their difficulties. Poetry, fiction, screeds, agendas, books — all were in evidence at the workshop. There were lots of plans, lots of big ideas, lots of goals … and eventually two or three actual publications. Steve was invited to contribute on the first issue’s theme, which was isolation.
