Children are the glue ...
that holds a society together...
...but not all children are born to fortunate times.
And not all children bring joy.

Calamity's Child introduces two children of mischance and explores the ways in which they changed the world around them.

In "Sweet Waters," a Liaden survey pilot discovers a planetary tragedy, only to have it take on a decidedly personal flavor when his ship crash-lands and he must make his way in a doomed culture.

"A Night at the Opera" explores the correlation between great heart and great magic — and what price is too high to pay for revenge.
