Friday morning advert

It’s raining in East Winslow, and aims to do so all day.  So, fine.  I have a section, ahem, “outlined” and words to go before I sleep.

In the meantime, your Friday morning adverts.

  1.  Sharon Lee and Steve Miller (and a Cast of Thousands) will be at the Rhode Island Comic Con in Providence, RI, November 11-13.  Look for us at the Wordfire Booth in the dealers room.  Here’s your link
  2. “The Road to Pomona’s,” a new-old story, with author’s commentary, has been posted to Splinter Universe.  Here’s that link
  3. Lee and Miller and the Liaden Universe® were spotlighted in the October issue of Locus Magazine.  You can download a pdf of the article here.
  4. Speaking of the October issue of Locus, Alliance of Equals appeared in the Number 2 spot for bestselling hardcovers (in July).
  5. Alliance of Equals currently has 241 reviews on Amazon. Steve and I thank everyone who took the time to comment.  It’s never too late to review a book on Amazon — any book on Amazon, not just ours — and by doing so you help the title, the writers, and other readers.
  6. The winter holidays will be here before you know it, and of course you want something Totally Cool to wear.  This is where the Liaden Universe® store at Offworld Designs comes in.  Polo shirts, long-sleeve denim shirts (in cool blue or formal black), the always–popular t-shirts, and! coffee mugs, which make a lovely gift for the hostess or host.  Here’s your link.
  7. The Gathering Edge, the 20th novel-length Liaden Universe® adventure, will be published by Baen in May 2017.
  8. Neogenesis, the 21st novel-length Liaden Universe® adventure, has been scheduled for publication in January 2018.
  9. Steve Miller and Sharon Lee are currently scheduled to attend three science fiction conventions in 2017.  They are:  Boskone, February 17-19, 2017, Boston MA; Marscon (Lee and Miller, writer guests of honor), March 3-5, 2017, Bloomington MN; Confluence  (Lee and Miller, writer guests of honor), August 4-6, 2017.
  10.   Neogenesis, aka The Book Scheduled for January 2018 publication, now stands at 73,891 words, more or less.

As a reward for reading this far, here’s a snippet:

“Only think! I may call upon soldiers and specialists. You may call upon — forgive me — a gaggle of pilots. While they are very fine pilots, they are of little use to us in the absence of –“

  1. Your ‘Road to Pomona’s’ has triggered a memory of the poem used in Diana Wynne Jones’ DEEP SECRET. Something like ‘How many miles is it to Babylon?’
    I think.
    I know I gave the book to a godson.
    Maybe I can just find the poem.
    Maybe then my back-brain will shut up about it.

  2. I wonder if that is the inspiration for the Babylon candles in Neil Gaiman’s book Stardust? Hmmm…

  3. Sharon, as Detritus would say, “Dat’s der puppy.”
    Rebecca, probably. That poem shows up in a lot of places.

  4. Wikipedia suggests that the poem dates back at minimum to the 19th century, and likely much older. It’s been referenced a LOT.

  5. [i]What[/i] a place to cut off the snippet! Good marketing, I guess.
    Get better health, please.
