Celebrating 25 Years of the Liaden Universe®

About A Liaden Universe Constellation : Volume 1:
 &;. . . adds a bit of sparkle to ordinary life. . . . This series [is] . . . the premier place to find good romantic SF adventure. . . . strong characters finding their own way (and, often, each other) in an action-packed galaxy of worlds. . . . Every story stands on its own; readers don&;t have to be familiar with the Liaden universe. Those who have had the pleasure, though, will find many connections to existing tales.&; &;Analog on A Liaden Universe Constellation: Volume 1.

 About the Liaden Universe® series:
&;Every now and then you come across an author, or in this case, a pair, who write exactly what you want to read, the characters and personalities that make you enjoy meeting them. . . . I rarely rave on and on about stories, but I am devoted to Lee and Miller novels and stories.&; &;Anne McCaffrey

&;These authors consistently deliver stories with a rich, textured setting, intricate plotting, and vivid, interesting characters from fully-realized cultures, both human and alien, and each book gets better.&;&;Elizabeth Moon

&;[A] recommended, powerful pick. . .a fast-paced military and political thriller.&;&;Midwest Book Review on Ghost Ship

&;[D]elightful stories of adventure and romance set in a far future. . .space opera milieu. It&;s all a rather heady mix of Gordon R. Dickson, the Forsythe Saga, and Victoria Holt, with Lee and Millier&;s own unique touches making it all sparkle and sizzle. Anyone whose taste runs toward SF in the true romantic tradition can&;t help but like the Liaden Universe.&;&;Analog

&;[T]he many fans of the Liad universe will welcome the latest&;continuing young pilot Theo Waitley&;s
adventures.&; &; Booklist on Saltation

&;[A]ficionados of intelligent space opera will be thoroughly entertained. . .[T]he authors' craftsmanship is top-notch.&; &;Publishers Weekly on Lee and Miller&;s popular Liaden® thriller, I Dare

The Liaden universe created by Sharon and Lee is a wonderful place to explore. I strongly recommend all their books. I just wish there were more books to read.
