Miller, Steve

Tagged: Author

(1950-    ) US author who began publishing work of genre interest with "Shalgiel" for Flux Magazine in 1976, one of his few solo works, as he soon began collaborating with Sharon Lee with "The Naming of Kinzel: The Foolish" (June 1984 Fantasy Book); all his novels have been with Lee, primarily the Liaden Universe sequence of Space Opera tales, set in expansive (though not adventurously described) interstellar venues. The first two titles, Agent of Change (1988) and Carpe Diem (1989), are closely linked adventure tales featuring an interstellar agent on the loose; the heroine of Conflict of Honors (1988) is a starship crewperson who undergoes various travails in her quest to become a pilot. As the series progresses, its depiction of the interrelations between the Liaden and Terran civilizations becomes more and more focused on patterns of behaviour through the prism of romance: marriages, contemplated and actual, are not infrequent. The authors' other series [for details see Checklist] mix sf and fantasy, weighted toward the latter. [JC]
