Three complete novels of humorous adventure, one of them a Hugo Award finalist, plus a trio of witty short stories with the distinctive Leinster touch.

The Pirates of Zan¾When a young man is accused and jailed unjustly, he is given a secret offer¾in return for help in escaping, he must shake up the galactic establishment, which is getting dangerously set in its ways. He succeeds beyond anyone's wildest expectations, seemingly becoming a space pirate, but being in reality, the deadliest do-gooder in the galaxy.Gateway to Elsewhere¾Suppose that somewhere the world of the Arabian Nights is real, including very powerful and dangerous djinns, who are nothing like Aladdin's big blue pal. A man from our world wouldn't have a chance against them . . . or would heThe Duplicators ¾ A planet where everyone has a machine which can duplicate anything would be the wealthiest world in the galaxy, right Wrong. And unless the hapless voyager who's trapped on the planet can find a solution to its problem, his voyaging will be over¾permanently.
Plus three short stories, including "A Logic Named Joe," an uncannily prophetic story of home computers and the internet ¾ written in 1946!

"Murray Leinster was not only a very good writer, he was a pioneer. He invented the field of parallel-universe stories with his "Sidewise in Time," and his "First Contact" set the pattern for all the stories that followed of¾well¾of first contact with alien civilizations. The wondrous thing about his work is that those great, trend-setting stories read as fresh and timely as they did all those years ago." ¾Frederik Pohl

". . . good stories, marvelously put together. . . . It's a pleasure to watch such a masterly craftsman at work, producing a couple of hours of diverting reading with unfailing skill." ¾Robert Silverberg

About the author (2005)

Maine-based writers Sharon Lee and Steve Miller teamed up in the late 80s to bring the world the story of Kinzel, a inept wizard with a love of cats, a thirst for justice, and a staff of true power. Since then, the husband-and-wife have written dozens of short stories, and eighteen novels, most set in their star-spanning Liaden UniverseÎ. Before settling down to the serene and stable life of a science fiction and fantasy writer, Steve was a traveling poet, a rock-band reviewer, reporter, and editor of a string of community newspapers. Sharon, less adventurous, has been an advertising copywriter, copy editor on night-side news at a small city newspaper, reporter, photographer, and book reviewer. Both credit their newspaper experiences with teaching them the finer points of collaboration. Sharon and Steve passionately believe that reading fiction ought to be fun, and that stories are entertainment.
