*Baen ebooks are never available for preorder — this has to do with Baen’s long-standing tradition of making eARCs available.  The ebook edition will be published on the day the paper edition publishes and will be available for purchase at that time from Baen, Amazon, BN, Apple, Kobo, and so on.

**We have no news of an audiobook edition at this time.  Be certain that we will shout this news from the rooftops, once it is in our possession.

  1. I didn’t do a very good job of avoiding reading most of these prior to the eArc this time, but it’s become a bit of a tradition to get the eArcs, and then the books regardless, so; happy to have it and to support both you and Steve, as well as Baen.

  2. Will enjoy seeing Sinit again. Is there a reason that “Wise Child” and “Chimera” haven’t appeared in any of the Constellations yet?

  3. It’s prob’ly me… I have Fortune’s Favor kindle and paperback. My copies contain “Fortune’s Favor” and “Surebleak / Dudley Avenue and Farley Lane”. Is this second story the same as “Opportunity to Seize” listed in LUC 5?

    On another note. TA DA! Bread Alone came through the post, so I am diving straight in. Thank you for a new story set in Low Port.

    Stay safe and well!
