Asyouknowbob, Steve and I will be hosting a Liaden Universe® Silver Anniversary party at Boskone. We therefore wish to have available at least one Liaden-themed party game. Since there’s not likely to be enough space in the room to set up a Sticks table (never mind that I don’t think Massachusetts law allows payouts), and competition knife-throwing is right out, we thought we’d have a basket full of quotations/brief passages available. The idea would be that a partier would pick up a piece of paper out of the basket, read the quote aloud, and the first person who identifies the book/story from which the quote is taken and/or the character speaking will win the adoration of the rest of the party goers. Rumor is that we may have prizes available to us, so there exists the chance of a quote-off, also.
So! We need your help. Send me your favorite quotes and/or scenes! Or, actually, post them below this message (note: I will need the entire quote as it appears in the novel/story *and* the source).
This is, asyoualsoknowbob, a moderated forum. That means that a human being must clear your comment, so it may not appear immediately. Never fear, it will appear eventually.
Let the games begin.
