Archers Beach is a more-than-slightly battered resort town on the coast of Maine, but there's something a little bit special about it. Magic works there, sort-of, and the trenvay—the beings that guard the land and the people—work their own kind of magic.
Includes two short stories, "The Gift of Music," and "The night don't seem so lonely."
Both stories were previously published at Baen.com
This is a work of fiction. All the characters and events portrayed in this novel are fiction or are used fictitiously.
Meet William Drew Faro the 4th—a human from Khareton's TriGrace Academy—and Trikura Dai—a rock-chewing, space-faring Chenri who is definitely not of this world!
Now imagine a star-spanning civilization where information is bought, sold, and bartered, where scary dimensional folds allow hyperflight between stars, and where a young Terran student information broker has been given the OK to "go farshloggin"—to take up the path that will permit him to "walk Osara" with the Chenri, the canniest info-brokers of all.
He's willing. He faces pirates, politics, police, and plots. All he has to do is survive. . .
In Master Walk, award-winning science fiction authors Sharon Lee and Steve Miller bring a new YA universe to life. Introducing The Advocacy, a rough-and-tumble civilization that has a mix of sentient races and a lot to learn.
Two stories touching on Archers Beach, Maine, scene of the novels Carousel Tides, Carousel Sun, and Carousel Seas, that explore the "what came after" or "what came before" in the lives of several characters from the novels.

Steve Miller is rapidly approaching one of those milestones many writers never reach—one million words in print. He's written science fiction, been a reporter, edited newspapers, and written articles for newspapers.
As a drama critic Steve's covered opening night plays and as a blues and rock music critic he's covered everything from one-gig garage bands to the Baltimore club scene to Bob Dylan and Little Feat in concert.
TimeRags II might seem an oddity to those who know him as a fictioneer, critic, or journalist, but Steve—grandson of internationally esteemed poet Dorothea Neale—spent portions of his early writing years as a touring coffee house poet and reader. In response to audience requests, Steve's first book, TimeRags, was published in 1975 in an edition of 200 copies.
TimeRags II updates that edition, with three poems added and two deleted; a number of typographical errors have been corrected and some minor changes in punctuation and order of presentation were made.
