About the Author
Maine-based writers Sharon Lee and Steve Miller teamed up in the late 80s to bring the world the story of Kinzel, a inept wizard with a love of cats, a thirst for justice, and a staff of true power. Since then, the husband-and-wife have written dozens of short stories, and eighteen novels, most set in their star-spanning Liaden Universe®. Before settling down to the serene and stable life of a science fiction and fantasy writer, Steve was a traveling poet, a rock-band reviewer, reporter, and editor of a string of community newspapers. Sharon, less adventurous, has been an advertising copywriter, copy editor on night-side news at a small city newspaper, reporter, photographer, and book reviewer. Both credit their newspaper experiences with teaching them the finer points of collaboration. Sharon and Steve passionately believe that reading fiction ought to be fun, and that stories are entertainment. Steve and Sharon maintain a web presence at http://korval.com/

I had a wonderful time going from one part of the Liaden worlds to the next, changing times, and in general, just having a good time. I loved getting back stories of different characters I had read about. Do you need to read the series for to read the short stories? No, but they allude to things you learn in the novels. I highly recommend this book and the series to anyone who enjoys science fiction.
I am now headed to order books 1 and 2. That is how satisfied I am.
There will probably be another book of shorts and I will buy it. BTW, the Liaden Universe now has over twenty books in it with a general rating of above average to excellent. If needful, I can provide a list of the order to read them in but, that is controversial in itself due to opinions of publishing order to chronological order.
It was interesting to see how some of them have changed from the versions posted on Splinter Universe, worth getting the book just for that if you are a fan.
I really miss the old chapbooks though....
and I still can't seem to muster any sympathy for the Kinzel character, he is apparently supposed to be cute but I find him annoying and not fitting into the Liaden universe. Of course the authors get to decide, but.... it baffles me.
Liaden is a magical world filled with honorable people responding to the necessities of family and the world around them.
