Exclusive new Ylendrian short story - "Want, Take, Have" - S. Reesa Herberth and Michelle Moore

As a special surprise for all the lovely LASR/WC readers, Michelle Moore and I have written a new short story, and you get first dibs on it.

It's a follow up to our most recent novel, The Slipstream Con, set one year after the events in that book, and answers the very important question: What do you get the bounty hunters who have everything?

You can find the full story on our website, largely because I couldn't figure out how to do a "read more" tag on Blogger, and I don't want to swamp the blog.

Want, Take, Have: A Slipstream short

Just to tease you, I've included a short intro below. Enjoy!

They found him sitting in a café, sipping a glass of iced tea and perusing the menu. The entire scene was familiar, a rose-tinted tribute to their first meeting. Long ago, when Tal and Vanya had first set their sights on running down Kellen Frey, King of Crimes Nobody Could Prove He'd Committed, they'd interviewed a recent victim of his at the very same café. At the time, they'd had no idea that they were actually dining with the man himself, while he scoped them out to see if they were really a threat.

"I got a nice white wine." Kellen gestured to the open bottle and the two empty glasses in front of their places as they sat down. They'd been on a job the last time, and there hadn't been any wine.

"You know, it took us awhile to figure out what your sketch meant. Or that it was even supposed to be a clue." Tal poured for the three of them, just a little extra in his own glass. It was a really excellent bottle, and it would have been a shame to let it go to waste.

Kellen grinned, blue eyes alight as he inclined his head and sipped. “You’re smarter than you let on. I knew you’d get here in time.”

What's the best anniversary present you've ever gotten? Probably not from an interstellar art thief, sure, but what makes an anniversary special is how you feel about the other person anyway, right?

My husband travels a lot on business. Last year he got me a puppy on our anniversary to keep me company while he is away. A year later she runs the house and us! LOL

Best anniversary present was actually a weekend away with my sister's. A day to recharge, while my dh stayed home with the kidlets.

Full body massage, mani, pedi and then a wonderful date night where he set up the overnight babysitting!

I would love an anniversary puppy! I liked when I got chocolate dipped fruit, a decorated apartment, table set, and home cooked meal!

I think the best anniversary present was a made from scratch dinner. Very thoughtful and delicious. Pretty much any present would make me happy :)
