E-Books The Dragon Variation I have read and loved all three of these books, but it strikes me as odd to group them thus when "Scout's Progress" and "Local Custom" were already released together in an omnibus edition. Plus it makes sense to group those two - the somewhat parallel stories of Val Con and Shan's parents - but not so much sense to me anyway to add the third book. Except, I suppose, to lure folks into the further adventures with more background knowledge of Clan Korval.. The Dragon Variation is Book Three space adventure novels in the popular Liaden Universe R series in one popularly priced Omni edition Local Custom Master Trader Er Thom yos Galan knows that Liaden custom is to be matched with a proper bride and provide his clan, Korval, with an heir Yet his heart is immersed in another universe, influenced by another culture, and lost to a woman not of his worlThree space adventure novels in the popular Liaden Universe R series in one popularly priced Omni edition Local Custom Master Trader Er Thom yos Galan knows that Liaden custom is to be matched with a proper bride and provide his clan, Korval, with an heir Yet his heart is immersed in another universe, influenced by another culture, and lost to a woman not of his world And to take a Terran wife such as scholar Anne Davis is to risk both his honor and reputation not to mention the lives of loved ones Scout s Progress Aelliana Caylon is a brilliant mathematician, revered by pilots for the life saving revisions she brought to the ven Tura Piloting Tables Despite this, her home life is terrifying, as the target of her elder brother s spite and her mother s indifference Convinced that she has no recourse, Aelliana endures, until, on a dare, she plays a game of chance and wins a spaceship Suddenly she has a way to escape her drab life if she can qualify as a pilot, and survive her brother s abuse Conflict of Honors Declared legally dead by a High Priestess of the Goddess and abandoned by her mother, Priscilla Delacroix has roamed the galaxy for ten years, surviving and becoming a woman of extraordinary skills Now, she s been betrayed and abandoned once again, left on a distant planet by the Liaden starship on which she had been an important officer But she s not alone starship captain Shan yos Galan has his own score to settle with the same enemy and is about to offer her an alliance.. Sharon Lee has been married to her first husband for than half her lifetime she is a friend to cats, a member of the National Carousel Association, and oversees the dubious investment schemes of an improbable number of stuffed animals.Despite having been born in a year of the dragon, Sharon is an introvert She lives in Maine because she likes it there In fact, she likes it so much that she has written five novels set in Maine contemporary fantasy trilogy Carousel Tides, Carousel Sun, Carousel Seas, and mysteries Barnburner and Gunshy.With the aforementioned first husband, Steve Miller, Sharon has written twenty novels of science fiction and fantasy many of them set in the Liaden Universe and numerous short stories She has occasionally been an advertising copywriter, a reporter, photographer, book reviewer, and secretary She was for three years Executive Director of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Inc and was subsequently elected vice president and then president of that organization.. A viral Kindle The Dragon Variation I really enjoyed the three novels that made up this collection, but must point out that the binding was barely up to the task of containing so many pages in one volume.Reading these books in the order they occur, as opposed to the order written, can be very informative about both the universe and the creative processes used. I could more fully appreciate Conflict of Honors after reading the other two, because I better understood the universe and the cultures.Each of the three books stands alone as a complete story, but I do appreciate the collection in this form, and look forward to the other groupings coming out the same way.The odd juxtaposition of adventure SF and stylized romance story took me aback a bit, in both Local Custom and Scout's Progress, but in both cases it worked quite well. Each of the three books focuses on an outsider interacting with the extremely stylized Liaden culture, which allows the reader to better understand both the story and the culture. My own view of the Liaden is that they're sort of high-tech Elves in space, with an overlay of Georgian England.All three books are worth reading, if you find them separately or in this combined edition.
