Stuff You Like The Liaden Universe

Do you like books? Me too! In this week’s episode we discuss the Liaden Universe: What is it? Would you like it? What’s with the TM? and we do an if-then on the various series within it, and which of them you might like. Also we laugh at hilarious 90s-esque cover art. Because that’s never not funny.

The interesting thing about the Liaden universe is that it’s one of the Internet’s first big success stories.

I love the fact you recommending a book series, and gives us a look into it. Not many review books or dig into it, which really makes me sad, since books has so many to offer!

The internet offered nowadays more freedom for people who want to write a story to show us to everybody, so I am always willing to read anything new! Never heard of the Liaden Universe series but from your review I believe that indeed this Liaden series has much to offer. I wonder why not many heard about it? :/
