It is my misfortune that I missed these books when they first came out. On the other hand, I have now bought all the monster volumes of the old stories that I missed. So I am getting to read them in big gulps. I guess I can move on to the new series of novels. The quality of the stories is uniformly high.

I just found the Liaden universe at the tail end - a book called Saltation. I was so engaged by it I've gone out to get all the other books. I've not actually read this one yet, since I just bought it. But if it's even half as good as the five others I've read, it's going to be wonderful.

Plan B. As part of the Liaden rulers' covert war against Clan Korval, the Department of the Interior hunts the heir Val Con yos'Phelium who once was a DOI Agent of Change killing machine until he met his beloved lifemate former mercenary hybrid Miri Robertson. They try to forge an alliance between his clan and her mother's Clan Erob at a time the Yxtrang military attacks. At the same time his desperate cousin Shan yos'Galan and his lifemate Priscilla believe time has run out so they deploy Plan B. I Dare: Fleeing the DOI hunters, Val Con and Miri have been separated. Meanwhile his cousin Shan and Priscilla search for him because they believe this is the only chance the DOI assault will have on lan Korval as the Liaden rulers offer another cousin of Val, Pat Rin yos'Phelium, leadership of the clan if he allies with them. Newcomers to the Liaden Universe will be better suited reading the books preceding Plan B, especially Carpe Diem, which ends where Plan B begins; I Dare follows immediately after. Both reprinted tales are entertaining outer space adventures with the recurring theme of the evil empire trying to destroy the most dangerous clans so they can succeed in their plan for domination. The heroes are fully developed while Pat will prove to have depth beyond being a shallow cousin. This is an enjoyable omnibus reprint. Harriet Klausner
