Sharon does intend to continue writing in the Liaden Universe®, at least to fulfill the three books still under contract. Those books will appear under the byline of Sharon Lee and Steve Miller.

Steve was not quite finished with his clean-up pass of Double Vision when he left us. Sharon will finish that project as she has time, and will let the world know when it’s ready for preorder.

Trade Lanes was left in a state of disarray. Sharon is not certain that she can write this novel. Time will tell. Thank you for your understanding.

The mass market edition of Salvage Right, the 100th Lee-and-Miller collaboration, will publish on April 30, and may be preodered now from All of the Usual Suspects.

1 The eARC (electronic Advance Reading Copy) of Ribbon Dance is now available from Baen Books. Here’s the link

2 A spoiler discussion page has been set up for those folks who have read the eARC and Want To Talk About It. Here’s that link

3 If you have read the eARC, please considering sharing a review on Goodreads,, or on your social media, to help other readers decide if they want to prorder the hardcover.

4 Sharon spoke with the Uncle regarding signed copies of Ribbon Dance, and it’s been decided that signed copies WILL BE offered for preorder. The preorder page has not yet gone live, but the Webmaster has received the go-ahead, so — Watch the Skies at Uncle Hugo’s SF Bookstore.

5 Ribbon Dance hardcover and ebook will release on June 4. Sharon has an inquiry in to Baen regarding the audiobook release, but has not received any information as of — oh, let’s call it press time; that sounds official.

  1. Thanks for the update. Had wondered about the future of our beloved series. If you would bring it to a close when the current contract terminates.
