Note to all the ships at sea -- electronic book news
This is a good news post, a slight rewrite of a note posted to the Friends of Liad mailing list last evening,
just before our late, celebratory dinner. It is good to have a good news post, eh?

So yes, here at the Cat farm and Confusion Factory we're greatly pleased to tell you that, through the perseverance of our agent and the goodwill of folks who recently suffered a great loss, the
first ten Liaden Universe(r) novels will be appearing as Baen ebooks
, with
the first volume (Korval's Legacy) currently expected to go on sale within 60 days or so.

The details of timing and packaging are still being worked out by indomitable Toni Weisskopf and Arnold Bailey, but we've already sent the text of the books on and expect that progress will be reasonably swift.

We want to thank all of you who have given us suggestions, both for Baen and for other ebook publishers; as well as those who championed an SRM Publisher expansion into the ebook field. We looked very carefully looked at many options.... and we're sure we will be quite happy to have our Liaden novels available electronically once again, and feel that Baen offers the best combination of access, focus, and compatibility for our needs and the needs of our many ebook-reading fans.

We also want to acknowledge our special thanks to Toni Weisskopf for permitting us to announce this to the Friends of Liad mailing list before the news was available elsewhere.

Oh yes, one more thing -- please feel free to spread the word to every Middlesex village and farm... and to all those SF fans you know, too.

Steve and Sharon
