That would be fun. More chaos agents,  albeit on a somewhat smaller scale than the core dragons. :)

Depends on who marries in where.  Imagine Nova contracting for an heir for The Weatherman, or Beautiful?  Or - unlikely, but hey - Diglon Rifle.

Yes, unless of course the Rifle finagles a lengthening of his first marriage.
And of course there is Theo...

I don't really see Theo doing the whole "bear an heir for the clan" thing, not the way she was raised.
Although, some of her responses await the resolution of Win Tor's medical issues, I believe.

One thing on that, you can hear the pronunciation of those Liaden words; and that would be a big help, I suspect.

Yes, except I don't care how they are supposed to be pronounced, I've been pronouncing them with Norwegian sounds in my head while reading for more than ten years now. The "correct" way just throws me out of the story when I hear it now.

There is that.  :)
I'll admit to some curiosity, though.  As when, in... Carpe Diem I think? ... Nova & Miri's mentor discover the clan Erob connection & the "Tiazan" confusion.

Yes, I sometimes wonder but if I do hear it I tend to then disregard it LOL

I get the same thing with some words.  I still pronounce "Hurog" MY way in spite of having heard the way Patty & Mike say it.

I've got my paperback of "Dragon Ship" sitting by me, and happened to glance at the cover endorsement.  I had to laugh.  Anne McCaffrey's been dead three years, this book came out in 2012, and the quote on the cover is "...I am devoted to Lee and Miller novels and stories." -- Anne McCaffrey

Now it's true, she did a foreword or something for them several years ago where she said their first 3 Liaden novels were comfort reads for her, but c'mon, she was already dead a year when this initially came out in hardcover; can't you find someone ALIVE to put on the quotes?
