Liaden Universe® InfoDump No. 77

Liaden Universe® InfoDump No. 77

That's right, the first 10 Liaden Universe® novels will be returning to print, repackaged with new covers by Baen Books
into 4 trade paper omnibus editions, thanks to yeoman efforts by our agent Jennifer Jackson.
The ink is still drying on this, so publication dates, volume titles,
and cover artists are still up in the air. The likely order of appearance is below.

Omnibus One: Local Custom, Scout's Progress, Conflict of Honors
Omnibus Two: Agent of Change, Carpe Diem
Omnibus Three: Plan B, I Dare
Omnibus Four: Crystal Soldier, Crystal Dragon, Balance of Trade

When we have dates and other information, we'll let you know.

Liaden Universe® authors Sharon Lee and Steve Miller will be appearing at Anticipation, WorldCon 67, in Montreal, Canada
starting later this week. The authors are scheduled for readings, signings, panels, a Friends of Liad breakfast, and general
frivolity -- join them if you can. The schedule at is still on as the authors madly pack.

FLEDGLING has begun soliciting reviews for Fledgling, which is officially due out in September; expect some copies to surface in bookstores and
conventions before then. Watch the skies, Theo is on her way!

Double Vision, the new 298 page collection of Sharon Lee and Steve Miller's work outside the Liaden Universe®, is shipping now.
With some stories dating to 1976 Double Vision is a great way to see the early individual work as well as the start of the collaboration
that led to the Liaden experience. Available from select genreshops and convention dealers as well as from the SRM Publisher
website at See WORLDCON WOW, below

The Liaden Universe novella MISFITS, previously avialable only electronically from Jim Baen's Universe, will be coming out in
paper format from SRM Publisher Ltd. in September, 2009. Subscriptions are available online. See WORLDCON WOW, below.

SRM Publisher will have a presentation at Worldcon, but no sales table. Since so many Lee & Miller readers aren't able to
come to the presentation to pick up the discount coupon postcards Steve will be handing out, we'll share the 20% off
coupon code with readers of this INFODUMP. That secret code is "Worldcon Wow" .... right. Also -- since the entire SRM Publisher retinue --
warehouse wranglers, office staff, and packing crew -- will be at worldcon, there will be a break in shipping new orders until
August 15. That secret code is "Worldcon Wow" and that's good for the entire SRM PUblisher catalog, though quantities of some items
may be limited to available stock. "Worldcon Wow" is the code, got that? Twenty percent off as a show special. Yes! The coupon special
runs until August 15. Worldcon Wow.

Steve Miller and Sharon Lee will be literary Guests of Honor at the following upcoming science fiction and fantasy conventions:
Oasis 23, May 28 -- 30, 2010, Orlando, Florida  ( )
