Alliance-Union books: spoiler alert

There is the general spoiler page for general questions.

I’m making this set of pages for more specific questions.

The rule is: do not ask or comment about a book until it has been at least a month in issue. I think that will make everybody happy re spoilers.

    You can be sure that your “old” books are very much loved.

    (waiting patiently for a new Alliance Universe novel, or two, or three…)

  • I was sitting the other day, thinking how much I’d loved the continuance of the Cyteen/Regenesis group. Will we ever get to see Eversnow – maybe with an ag├Ęd Ari II visiting the newly established base of Reseune there? A continuance of her efforts to shepherd humanity, maybe influence Alliance and help mend fences and keep humanity a cohesive group, rather than the disparate tribes flung to the stars?

    Just some thoughts I had.

      new here, but I’ve been wondering the same thing…I’ve read and re-read those two books several times…i just keep coming back to those two for some reason. I suppose it’s just how much i like the characters of Justin and Ari. Plus the coldwar/spy novel feeling of the last half of Regenesis with Yanni and company running around and hiding out in Novgorod…

    Although I have been enjoying the Foreigner series I still love the Alliance/Union books best. I have recently loaned a copy of Merchanter’s Luck to a friend and got them hooked as well. I know these things are never really predictable but I would love to see some more books in the Alliance/Union setting, it just seems like there is so much more left to explore. I was wondering if it was something that had lost its interest as a background for stories, or whether it was a case of there being other pressures to continue with the Foreigner books, or if it was just that while the story arc of the Foreigner books was not complete it was a matter of following it down to the end.

    I wish the Alliance-Union series and the Faded Sun books were available for Kindle. My ancient paperbacks of these, (some were very hard to acquire,) are in storage since a move, and pages fall out when I read them. These series should be in electronic storage somewhere; they are too good to lose.

    Sherbs and rylarkin – I’m right there with you! My living quarters shrinks with every move and I no longer have room for hard cover or paperbacks. Everything I buy is either on my Kindle or my Fire pad. I’ve been longing for a few years now for a return to the Alliance-Union world. Also the Chanur novels – Chanur’s Legacy left the door open for a return. I realize the Foreigner novels pay the bills and keep the publishers happy, but what about the readers? I got burned out on the Foreigner series a few books ago and haven’t been back since. I check in here every now and then just to see – and hope! – if by some miracle there has been a return to the world(s) I love. It would also be awesome if all the books were available electronically!

    Missed that one, Ragi-at-heart. Thanks for posting it. So Science Fiction is really proving once again just to be science on the way to becoming fact.
