Overview

Adventures in the Liaden Universe® Number 10

When space pilots dance, they move...

. . .readers asked the questions:

What happens when Korval moves to Surebleak?
What happens when Pat Rin and Val Con get together?
What happens when Aunt Kareen tries to bring the Code to the frontier?

Answers to some of these perplexing questions can be found in "Lord of the Dance," an original Liaden Universe® story appearing for the first time in With Stars Underfoot. Series readers will recognize most of the characters, though many of them are putting on holiday finery for this wintertime outing in a most unusual location.

Also included in this chapbook is "This House," a Liaden Universe® story written specifically at the request of Janis Ian for the 2003 Janis Ian tribute anthology STARS. If you haven't read the anthology, you haven't read "This House."

From award-winning science fiction authors Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, another fine, fun read!


". . .tight, well-wrought prose, economical characterization, and basically charitable vision of humanity. . ." -- Tangent Online

"The writing is as rich with detail as anything by C.J. Cherryh, while the general approach. . .reminds of Andre Norton." -- Analog
