EVERYONE should read about Liad

Shortly after I met D he introduced me to the wonderful Liaden books. They are sci-fi with a bit of romance thrown in. The books quickly became very important to me and since then I've reread them several times. I eagerly look forwad to reading each new book.

One of the aspects that I love about these books is the extreme honor and respect that is required in that society. They made me think about who I want to be and how I want to treat people. Now I find myself often wishing I could just keep a stack of them on around and hand them out to everyone. I wish they were on standard reading lists. The problem of course is that I feel most people today wouldn't get the concepts.

Mental note: need to bring make sure my palm is charged cause now I feel like I need to read them again.

When I grow up, I want to be Anne. But then, actually, now that I think of it, I wouldn't mind being Daav, either. It'd mean a sex change but I could deal. Or just maybe have a job at Benjali's.

Oh yes.

OK, you're the second person on my f-list *today* to recommend these. I wonder how many the library has.

hey I wandered over here from Stevie_Stevier's journal (he mentioned you and I was wondering if I knew you, as new people pop up on LJ all the time), and I saw you mentioned the Liaden books...I also love them. The differing cultural themes, the idea of high honor, does a lot for me. I haven't found a lot of books that bring out those concepts as well.

You might be interested to know that the authors of the Liad books are on lj… Sharon is rolanni and I’m pretty sure that Steve is kinzel. There’s also a group, liaden_spoilers for bits from upcoming books.

Just FYI from a random fof surfer.

Thanks. Actually all of the above were added to my friends list about 2 weeks ago when I discovered this information leading up to Boscon.
