Here's a look at the Skyblaze cover, if my upload works this time -- we're having intermittent connections caused by winds in the cables.... and if that works, maybe more news...


Otherwise, here's the Infodump previously seen in several elsewheres: this is

Liaden Universe® InfoDump No. 86


GENERAL NOTE RE SKYBLAZE AND OTHER SCHEDULES

Steve's cardiomyopathy, diagnosed while he was hospitalized in October for pneumonia, resulted in drug therapy, tests, and monitoring in November and December; in mid-January he an AICD/defibrillator implant to bolster the drug therapies. That procedure and resultant medical limitations (like not being able to lift more than 5 lbs for more than six weeks!) have slowed the production of Skyblaze, which is at the printer being readied now. Steve should be able to begin packing around March 7, about 1 month behind schedule. If you have yet to preorder this chapbook you may still use the pre-order page (ignore original closing date) -- this
page will be now be good through March 1, 2011. http://www.korval.com/skyblaze/
