Editorial Reviews

Don Sakers
"A. . .heady mix of Gordon R. Dickson, the Forsythe Saga, and Victoria Holt, with Lee and Miller’s own unique touches making it all sparkle and fizz. Anyone whose taste runs toward SF in the true romantic tradition can’t help but like the Liaden Universe." —Analog

Meet the Author

Maine-based writers Sharon Lee and Steve Miller teamed up in the late '80s to bring the world the story of Kinzel, a inept wizard with a love of cats, a thirst for justice, and a staff of true power. Since then, the husband-and-wife have written dozens of short stories, and eighteen novels, most set in their star-spanning Liaden Universe®. Before settling down to the serene and stable life of a science fiction and fantasy writer, Steve was a traveling poet, a rock-band reviewer, reporter, and editor of a string of community newspapers. Sharon, less adventurous, has been an advertising copywriter, copy editor on night-side news at a small city newspaper, reporter, photographer, and book reviewer. Both credit their newspaper experiences with teaching them the finer points of collaboration. Sharon and Steve passionately believe that reading fiction ought to be fun, and that stories are entertainment. Steve and Sharon maintain a web presence at www.korval.com

    Highly Recommended

    These short stories set in the Liaden Universe are, as are all the Liaden books, wonderful. I especially liked the second story about Ren Zel and Anthora. Lee & Miller are authors of books that are in my "to be re-read" pile. Definitely a good read, but read the other in the series first.

    Must-read stories!

    Having read all of the Liaden full length books, I was reluctant to read a serie of short stories, however these were all that were available on my Nook, so I purchased one, then another then all of them. What a wonderful addition they turned out to be. Not only highly entertaining in their own right, but useful in filling in the details and characters touched on in the novels. I am looking forward to B&N adding "Local Custom" and "Scout's Progress", as well as all of the other excellent Lee and Miller Liaden stories, to their listing.
