Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0977663949, Paperback)Even Clan Korval needs friends, and the kinds of friends they often need aren't simply buddies and pals, but allies. As Cantra so succinctly put it: "In the matter of allies only two things are important. First, can he shoot? Second, will he aim at your enemy?" Allies features several stories dealing with members of Clan Korval, including the Miri Robertson story, "Fighting Chance," which led off Tanya Huff and Alexander Potter's Women of War anthology in 2005 and features a young Miri on Surebleak. The other story, "Prodigal Son", which is original to this chapbook, shows Val Con returning to Vandar, the scene of much action early in the Agent of Change sequence, where things set in motion during his first visit are coming to a very dangerous conclusion.

Adventures in the Liaden Universe Number 12 "In the matter of allies only two things are important. First, can he shoot? Second, will he aim at your enemy?" Allies, Adventures in the Liaden Universe #12 celebrates Cantra's often repeated quote with two prime examples. First, Fighting Chance is a short story featuring young Miri Robertson coming face-to- face with a two violent men and a life-changing decision. This story appeared as lead in Women of War in 2005. Next is the new Sharon Lee and Steve Miller novelette Prodigal Son. Val Con's necessity as Delm Korval requires him to leave pregnant Miri and return to the backward world Vandar. His enemies from the Department of the Interior threaten the well-being not only of his former bandmates Kem and Hakan, but Zhena Trelu and the entire planet. How could he foresee that Hakan's active curiosity would attract them?
