The need for speed
redster
kinzel
Actually, this time of the year in Maine you've got to be careful of speed. Not only are the roads suddenly edged with snow and ice, they're also fraught with crossing deer, moose, turkeys, squirrels (not so much a danger as long as you don't over react)...and the increasingly common instant pothole.

Speaking of speed (you knew there was a tie-in, I bet)... we've shipped all the pre-orders of Allies I can locate as well as some of the more recent orders. This so much that I'll have to run to Augusta tomorrow to deliver some chapbooks for reprinting. Busy is good, I'm told.

In case you missed it:

Fledgling
...A Liaden Universe® Adventure
is being updated about once a day... right now the update is not fiction, but a story of sorts nonetheless... because the page features a progress bar on how many chapters of Fledgling have been funded... and how far along we are on the next. IIRC, we're currently nearly 50% funded for chapter 6, scheduled for release March 5th, 2007. Please feel free to take news of this project elsewhere, as has been previously discussed.

By the way if you see a particularly interesting mention of Fledgling, let us know. If you'd like to interview us about Fledgling for a blog or podcast, please let us know here or at the Theo Waitley community page ... and yes, Theo is *not now and has never been* a vampire.

THE BOOK IS IN THE MAIL

Holiday chapbook, that is! All of the _Allies_ pre-orders have now been shipped, and we have reports of some already arriving at their intended destinations. There was some delay -- a little over a week -- due to flu passing through the Lee-Miller household just before Thanksgiving, but all is in order now.

For those who were waiting for the book to be available on the general SRM catalog page -- wait no longer. It may now be purchased (unsigned) from http://www.korval.com/srmcat2.htm


ALL-NEW LIADEN UNIVERSE(R) NOVEL

Sharon Lee and Steve Miller are pleased to announce that we will be serializing Liaden Universe(R) novel _/Fledgling/_ on the web starting January 22, 2007. This novel is so new that it hasn't even been written yet. We'll be using a modified chapter-a-week schedule which depends in part on reader interest and support.

For those who have read _/I Dare_/, this will be the story of Theo
Waitley, who had a "kind of complicated" problem to lay before the delm of Korval.

More information about the project can be found at
