Subject: [LMB] Penric on Paper

I am pleased to report that Subterranean Press has made an offer to do a
print edition of the novella "Penric's Demon".


Unlike larger publishers, they can do smaller, more quirky projects, and
seem a very good fit for this novella-length work.

The ink is not yet dry on the contract, so I can't give you publication
specifics for the good reason that they don't yet exist. But the
probabilities are release sometime in the later part of 2016, and a
modest hardcover run, with a limited number of signed copies.

So, all you people who asked in the comments for a paper edition, here
you go. Subterranean does some very pretty book design, so I expect it
will be worth the wait.

Title: Victory Conditions (The Rashomon Remix)

Fandom: Vorkosigan

Remix of Improvisation by fawatson

Characters: Miles Vorkosigan, Ivan Vorpatril, Cadet Kostolitz, Baz Jesek's awkward younger cousin who isn't canon but totally should be.

Rating: General

Word count: ~8600

Summary: After an Academy training exercise goes - not wrong, Miles would insist, just unexpected - the squad reassembles to take stock. Kostolitz is trying to figure out the Vor; Ivan wants to do things like a normal person for once, whatever that entails; and Jesek is just happy to be included. Meanwhile, somebody's just a little too interested in what Miles' squad is up to. This is incredibly silly, and I meant every word.

Notes: Based almost entirely on canon from The Warrior's Apprentice, though there are some oblique references to things that happen in later books.

Available on AO3, Dreamwidth or Livejournal

Illyan's Daughters
Three chapters- complete
Words: 7328

"...They called us Illyan's Daughters, but that name came later as our numbers grew. Some called us the 'damaged' daughters but we weren't damaged; granted most of us were bruised by life but those bruises were part of what we were but not the sole reason of what we became. Illyan gave us a chance that's all I know and our loyalty would always be to him first. Always.

This is a story of one of those daughters..."

Title: The Offer
Fandom: Vorkosigan
Author: beatrice_otter
Characters: Aral's unnamed sister, Piotr Vorkosigan, Ezar Vorbarra
Wordcount: 4182
Summary: Fedosia Vorkosigan has spent the last decade administrating her father's district in relative obscurity. She liked it. The Emperor's proposition, on the other hand …

Fic on AO3

( Fedosia Vorkosigan did not often see her son. Or her father. The first she regretted very little, and the second not at all. )

Timeline note:
I am using the timeline put together by Tel, which has been very helpful.
The timeline is indexed to Ezar's birth year. I am assuming that Fedosia was born the same year that Aral's unnamed first wife was born in canon, the year Ezar was 35, and that she married Ges the same year Aral would have married Ges' sister (the year Ezar was 53 and Fedosia was 18). Ges died the same year Aral's first wife died in canon (Ezar 55, Fedosia 20), and this story takes place ten years later (Ezar 65, Fedosia 30). Ezar died at age 77, twelve years after this story. In canon, Serg and Kareen were married when Ezar was 68 and Gregor was born when Ezar was 72, the year after the Komarr invasion.

You Can Steal What You Love...But You Can't Love What you Steal | Martya's Confession


Summary: Ivan and Martya are divorced. Ekaterin received a letter from Delia with a plea on behalf of her sister...

Characters: Ekaterin, Delia and Martya - in letter form.

This is Part 2 of That Choice You Made but it's not neccessary, I've just realised, to read this in order to understand the "You Can Steal..." fic,  which now makes me think why did I write those 11 chapters when this summarieses the whole thing!!!! (Well except for the bits with Miles thinking his dad's off his rocker n stuff...)

Many thanks to you lovely readers :D
