The Great Migration — (2005-2006) With Steve Miller. Publisher: Centuries in the past, mankind fought a seemingly unbeatable adversary from sector to sector across the Spiral Arm until the war ground to a standstill and the Enemy withdrew. Believing that they had won, the citizens of the galaxy rebuilt. The Inner Worlds, which had escaped the worst of the war’s ravages, became even more insular, while the Rim worlds adopted a free and easy way with law and order. Now, hundreds of years after their withdrawal, the Enemy is back — and this time they’ll be satisfied with nothing less than the extinction of the galaxy.

The Naming of Kinzel — (2011) Publisher: Three stories of power, innocence, and magic. Kinzel the Foolish: Meet Kinzel, ‘prentice to Mad Siljan the herb lady. Not quite the village fool. Not quite.

Kinzel the Innocent: Against his master’s — and his own! — expectation, Kinzel has won a wizard’s staff, and, having done so, he can no longer stay in his master’s house. So, he sets to see the world, finding it as wondrous as the world seems to find him. It’s a good life, but it may be a short one, for Kinzel has made powerful enemies.

That is the question the traveling wise man Kinzel is called upon to decide.

If you’re in the market for a highly readable and somewhat unpredictable collection of fantasy and science fiction, with subtle humor, irony, and good story sense, Endeavors of Will by Sharon Lee may well be what you’re looking for! Included in this collection are: Stolen Laughter, The Winter Consort, The Pretender, The Silver Pathway, Stormshelter, The Girl, The Cat and Deviant, A Matter of Ceremony, The Handsome Prince, and the poem Cards.
