Plan B (A Liaden Universe Novel) O.K., another Liaden Universe® book. What can I say, I like the writing of Miller & Lee and certainly this series. This takes place a moderately short time after the stories in Partners in Necessity. The Department of the Interior, a secret Liaden agency, has declared war on Clan Korval. With Val Con yos'Phelium still a fugitive, it falls on his cousin Shan yos'Galen to invoke Plan B, the code name of clan's strategy to defend itself in the face of an all-powerful enemy.
335 pages; Fine/Fine. New. SIGNED by both authors. Boards are straight, tips are pointed, spine is square and pages are clean. DJ is also Fine. In protective sleeve. An excellent gift! Plan B, A Liaden Universe Novel. We have both hardcover and trade paper copies
Science Fiction & Fantasy, Liaden Universe®
If you would like to see what other books we have by them, you can do a search for Steve Miller & Sharon Lee. Or maybe you would like some more information about them? If so, why don't you take a look at our Liaden Universe Page.
The Cat's Job (Liaden Universe) 2010 Special Edition ; Contains "Ginger and the Bully of Lowergate Court", "The Cat's Job", "The Big Ice", and a crossover Laiden Universe short story "Kings of the Cats" in which Val Con gets summoned by Kinzel the wizard leaving Miri in the Laiden Universe figuring out how to bring him back.
I originally picked this up (the older edition) to read for the story "Kings of the Cats" because it was a story with Val Con and Miri but the other three stories are well worth reading also. Some of you know I like to re-read and when I re-read this one, it won't be just because of the Val Con and Miri story.
Science Fiction & Fantasy, Liaden Universe®
Wizard By Trade by Jim Butcher. NY SFBC 2006 0739465813 / 9780739465813 First Thus; Wizard by Trade, The Dresden Files: Includes Summer Knight & Death Masks. 598 pages; Fine/Fine. New book. Un-read. This Book Club is the first hardcover edition of this collection of stories. Boards are straight, tips are pointed, spine is square and pages are clean. DJ is Fine! With a tiny bit of shelf rub at edges. In protective sleeve. Fantastic art work by Daniel Dos Santos. An Excellent Gift! For Harry Dresden, the only wizard listed in the Chicago phone book, when it rains, it pours. In fact, it pours toads, always a sign something bad is about to happen, But Harry takes such omens in stride, given that his rattletrap VW Bug needs constant upkeep, and his 30 pound guard cat wants regular meals.
From Publishers Weekly
New, Science Fiction & Fantasy
Harry Dresden, Chicago's only consulting wizard, takes on phobophages, creatures that feed on fear who attack a horror film convention, in the diverting eighth installment of Butcher's increasingly complicated Dresden Files series (Dead Beat, etc.). Harry finds that fighting monsters is only the prelude to maneuvers amid the warring wizards of the White Council and the vampire Red Court. Less and less V.I. Warshawski with witchcraft, Harry aims his deductive powers at political intrigues rather than crime solving. The body count from the magical melees, however, would do any hard-boiled gumshoe proud. Butcher's believable, likable set of characters go for the jocular much more than the jugular. Deeper fears do run through the book, and Harry, taking on an apprentice, has to face up to the consequences of his all-too-human failings. Look for the series to really take off with the debut of a two-hour pilot on the Sci-Fi Channel this summer produced by Nicholas Cage. (May)
