So! Who needs something to do?
Yeah, I know; me neither.
But! If you do, indeed have time to do a little typing, we have a little typing to be done.
Steve and I are planning to do a retrospective on Welcome to Liad — which will feature all of the author quotes our books have gathered over the years and the re-issues.
However! This means that we need to have those quotes in a file, which — we don’t.
If you would like to type the quotes from the front cover, inside front, and back cover of one book into a reply to this message that will help us get this thing going.
Titles that have author quotes follow. Be aware that some of the quotes included in the Meisha Merlin editions are quite lengthy. Some are more like letters, or reviews. Also, some of the quotes are short bits from actual reviews, from, say Publisher’s Weekly or Analog — those are also typing fodder.
OK, then — titles!

If you’re willing to play this silly game, please type the title and edition of the book you are typing from at the top of your entry. Form for the review is:
A genuine treat for Liaden fans. Rich with detail — the best yet.
—Barry B. Longyear, author of Naked Came the Robot
If no work is included after the author’s name in your chosen title, that’s OK, just leave it like it is, and we’ll figure it out.
So, there you have it. If you’re willing to play — go for it! If not, thanks for listening!
