Splinter Universe Presents!
Something a little bit different
What this collection is--it's Something A Little Bit Different. We will explain. We'll try to be brief. And we'll start with what it isn't.
It isn't a Liaden Universe® novel
It isn't a collection of Liaden short stories
It isn't an Adventure in the Liaden Universe®
So what is it, you ask.
Well, it's this: bits of novels or stories that stalled; outtakes from published novels; character sketches; and discovery drafts. All of these bits and bobs are Liaden in nature, but they are not—not one of them is—complete. They are of possible interest to devoted fans of the Liaden Universe®; they are not guaranteed to be everyone's cuppa.
Also? Every single one of the said bits and bobs included in this collection has been previously published on Splinter Universe, for the amusement of the authors and the interest of those same devoted fans. There is nothing new here, save the Authors' Introduction.
All of the material in this book has been removed from Splinter Universe; the only place you will find them is in this collection. Why? Because we promised those devoted readers that the material would not be Lost Forever.
Having read this, If you've decided to continue—we welcome you, along with those devoted fans who traveled with us down the years.
