Don Blyly at Uncle Hugos Bookstore is working from home after his store was burnt out. He tells us that the exclusive to the Uncles signed-via-tipped-in-sheets Trader’s Leap, the twenty-third novel of the Liaden Universe® by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, has arrived and is being shipped as he has time — he’s already packed some Canadian orders as well as a bunch of US orders.
The official publication date for Leap is December 1, but since Baen doesn’t usually embargo books (and Don’s house can only hold so many books) he’s going ahead now. He mentions that he has more than enough for the 150 or so pre-orders, and he’ll ship new orders first-come basis after the pre-orders are done. If you haven’t yet ordered your signed edition of Trader’s Leap, now is the hour. Here’s your link.
In other news, I have pushed the button to start the publication process of the paper edition of Ambient Conditions: Adventures in the Liaden Universe® Number 31 (yes, written by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller). It can take as long as 72 hours for print editions to make it through Amazon’s system, so patience is still in order. I will post a buy link as soon as there is one.
The ebook edition of Ambient Conditions is still set to publish on November 27.
And that’s this morning’s news.
