our latest info dump, as going out now...


Liaden Universe(R) InfoDump Number 55


ALLIES: ADVENTURES IN THE LIADEN UNIVERSE(R) NUMBER 12

_Allies_ consists of two stories of Clan Korval. The Miri Robertson
story, "Fighting Chance," which led off Tanya Huff and Alexander
Potter's _Women of War_ anthology in 2005 shows a young Miri on
Surebleak. The other story, "Prodigal Son", which is original to this
chapbook, shows Val Con returning to Vandar, the scene of much action
early in the _Agent of Change_ sequence, where things set in motion during
his first visit are coming to a very dangerous conclusion.

SNIPPETS of the two stories included in _Allies_ are now available for
perusal. "Fighting Chance" can be found at
http://www.korval.com/bloorue/chance.htm ...while "Prodigal Son" may be
read at http://www.korval.com/bloorue/prodigalsnip.htm

Signed copies of _Allies_ may be pre-ordered until November 17, 2006, and
will ship the week of November 19, 2006. For more information and to
pre-order, visit the SRM Publisher catalog page at

NEWS FROM MEISHA MERLIN
_Web of the Trident_, which details the continuing adventures of Gem ser
Edreth, begun in _The Tomorrow Log_, is scheduled for a spring release in
hardcover from Meisha Merlin. Pre-orders are now being taken at the
Meisha Merlin site (http://www.meishamerlin.com). Please note that Sharon
and Steve will *not* (that's NOT) be signing the pre-ordered books. There
is the possibility of having signed bookplates included with the
pre-orders, but the details of this have not yet been worked out with the
publisher.

Cover art for _Web_ is by Donato Giancola (http://www.donatoart.com).

For the procrastinators among us, Meisha Merlin reports that they have
less than ten copies of the hardcover edition of _Crystal Dragon_ left on
hand. We note that there are some copies still available in bookstores and
bookstore warehouses.

In January 2007, Meisha Merlin will publish _The Tomorrow Log_ in mass
market paperback. This will be Meisha Merlin's very *first* mass market
paperback and they're hoping for a good response from readers as well as
the distribution channel.

The trade paperback edition of _Crystal Dragon_ will be published by
Meisha Merlin in February 2007, and pre-orders are now being taken at the
Meisha Merlin site.

NEWS FROM ACE BOOKS
