Hook a friend on Liad

the kids

Back in February 1988, Del Rey Books published as a paperback original a space opera that asked the musical question, Can a rich boy with a severe personality disorder, and a brother who is a giant sentient turtle, find true love and lasting happiness with a tough-talking retired mercenary soldier on the run from the Mob?  The title of this odd little novel was Agent of Change, from first-time novelists Sharon Lee and Steve Miller.

This! is the novel that set up the Liaden Universe®, now sixteen books strong.  And now?  You can download it for free from these sources, DRM-free:

The Baen Free Library (in all ebook formats known to man)

Amazon (kindle)

Please share this news with all your friends, and especially with your friends who need the Liaden Universe® in their lives.

In other news, it snowed last night.

For my nephews birthday last month, I gave him the first three books, and he asked what they were about I just told him Giant Turtles, but there wasnt enough Turtle in them for me..

He just asked me if there were more books... *smirk*

You can never have too many Giant Turtles, is my thinking...

Good on you -- and on your nephew!

Have spread the word on Goodreads and the Booksmugglers (who are doing Old School Wednesdays as a recurring feature and could do with getting to know the Liaden Universe, I think ^^).

What the Subject says.

And on a personal note: I think this is "A Good Thing". And I hope it introduces lots of new readers to Liad.

Thank you!

Sadly, we have but the single penguin, and he's beginning to show his age. He does class the place up, though.
