It’s been a while, but here’s a new Splinter — Miri and Priscilla Surprise.
It’s been a busy month for us, what with Trader’s Leap taking its first steps into the world. We’ve done a total of three interviews in support of it and the Liaden Universe® in general.
For those interested, here is a comprehensive list:
Baen editor Tony Daniel interviews Lee and Miller (your choice of audio or video. Princess Jasmine Sprite makes a special guest appearance in the video)
Paul Semel Interviews Lee and Miller (written)
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.
1 Today! Is Trader’s Leap Book Day! This means the hardcover and ebook editions are available from your favorite vendor.
1a If you have Just Now Realized that you would like to have a signed copy of Trader’s Leap, Uncle Hugo’s has a few more pre-signed copies. Here’s your link.
1b If you — yes, you; I see you there in the corner — have finished reading Trader’s Leap and Want to Talk About It, there is a spoiler discussion in progress at this link. This is a moderated venue, so your post will not appear immediately. It will be made public within 24 hours, and usually sooner, but we do sleep, and having the cats moderate just hasn’t worked out.
2 Ambient Conditions: Adventures in the Liaden Universe® Number 31 is now available from your favorite ebook vendor. This chapbook contains two stories — previously published “A Visit to the Galaxy Ballroom,” and title story “Ambient Conditions,” plus an authors’ foreword.
2a The paper edition of Ambient Conditions is available from Amazon only. Here’s your link.
3 Paul Semel interviewed Lee and Miller. You can read the results here.
4 Tomorrow night — that’s Wednesday, December 2, at 7 pm PST — Steve and Sharon will be reading from Trader’s Leap, talking trash, and taking questions at Mysterious Galaxy. If you’d like to be part of this festive occasion, you need to sign up in advance. The instructions for doing so can be found at this link.
5 If you haven’t read “Preferred Seating,” the companion story to “Ambient Conditions,” and teaser for Trader’s Leap, you still have a couple of days to grab it while it’s free at Baen.com. Here’s your link.
EDITED TO ADD 6: The Theory, insofar as it has been expressed to us, is that, yes, there will be an Audible edition of Trader’s Leap. No, we don’t know when. We are sorry not to be more informative, but authors pretty much are the last to know.
And that? Is all the news that’s fit to print.
Everybody stay safe and stay healthy.
1a Tshirts! There is a deadline involved in preordering the new run of Liaden tshirts, and that deadline is! Mother’s Day, May 10. Your order must be in by that date. Shirts ship on a first-ordered, first shipped basis, and will start shipping the week of May 11.
1b If you don’t favor pink, take a look at the shirts on offer lower on the page at the link below, which are not only Not Pink, but are on sale. Also? There are coffee mugs.
2a The ebook edition of Splinter Universe Presents! has now been distributed to all of the Usual Suspects. Here’s the link to Baen. Here’s a universal link to Apple, BN, Kobo, 24 Symbols, and Angus and Robertson. Here’s the link to the Kindle edition.
2b Here’s the link to the paper edition which is available only from Amazon. No, the ebook and the paper edition have not been associated yet. This is something that Amazon does (or, doesn’t do), so telling us really doesn’t advance the cause, thank you.
3 Pinbeam Books (this would be Lee and Miller’s indie publishing arm) is a catalog of Adventures in the Liaden Universe® chapbooks, and other Lee-and-Miller, and Lee, and Miller chapbooks, with links to Amazon, Baen, and BN. This is the link to Pinbeam Books.
4 Please feel free to let your friends and fellow readers know about the limited edition tshirt offer, Pinbeam Books, and about the Liaden Universe® in general. You have the links, use them well and wisely.
5 Everyone stay safe, and stay peaceful. Tell your nearest and dearest that you love them, and thank them for being there.
