Lee, Sharon / Miller, Steve  
Liaden: Necessity's Child
Publisher's signed edition with signature page tipped in; signed by both authors. The kompani sees none as enemy, and yet few as friend, existing in many places, living quietly in the shadows, thriving off the bounty that others have no wit to secure, nor skill to defend. Their private history is unwritten; their recall rooted in dance and dream. Clan Korval is in many ways the opposite: wealthy in enemies, fortunate in friends, protecting itself with vigor, and teaching even its youngest children the art of war. When representatives of Clan Korval arrive on the planet Surebleak where the kompani has lived secret and aloof, it seems to the kompani that they are borne by the very winds of change, and their plans may bring catastrophe, changing the culture, and the kompani, forever. There, the lives of three people intersect: Kezzi, apprentice to the kompani's grandmother; Syl Vor, Clan Korval's youngest warrior; and Rys, a man without a world, or a past.

Signed by the author on the title page. For six years, former temple assassin Aral Kingslayer has lived by picking up odd jobs on the wrong side of the law.

Aral has a new life now, with a fresh identity and new responsibilities, but he soon finds himself involved in a war that will leave him with no way out and no idea who to trust.

The Mirage
11/9/2001: Christian fundamentalists hijack four jetliners. They fly two into the Tigris & Euphrates World Trade Towers in Baghdad, and a third into the Arab Defense Ministry in Riyadh. The fourth plane, believed to be bound for Mecca, is brought down by its passengers. The United Arab States declare a War on Terror. Arabian and Persian troops invade the eastern seaboard of the US and establish a Green Zone in Washington, DC. 2009: Mustafa, an Arab Homeland Security agent, interrogates a captured suicide bomber, who claims that the world they are living in is a mirage - in the real world, the US is the superpower, not the Arab states. A search of the bomber's apartment turns up a copy of the New York Times dated September 12, 2011, that appears to support his claim. Other captured terrorists have been telling the same story. The president wants answers, but Mustafa discovers he's not the only interested party - gangster Saddam Hussein is conducting his own investigation. And the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee - war hero Osama bin Laden - will stop at nothing to hide the truth.
