I Rejoice in the New Chapbook!
Reviewed in the United States on November 25, 2021
Americans have spent the past two years baking, so it is said. Lee and Miller as well, as readers of their blog will recall; not just the product of yeast and flour and salt, but words as well.
I’m always happy to find a new tale from the Liaden Universe, and to find one that has been a comfort to my soul as this is a rare treat.
This chapbook consolidates the various stories in and around the Bakery, during several spots on the general timeline. These characters, however, are not of Clan Korval, but of lesser clans. The rejected grandson of a wastrel delm, several Terran mercs, medics, Healers, and Lucks; all make appearances in these pages.
If you look to be introduced to the Liaden Universe, this shouldn’t be your first pick. (I suggest starting with Agent of Change.)
But if you know Solcintra Low Port and the streets of aptly-named Surebleak, you will enjoy the stories in this volume.
