Available 5/99 from Baen Books:
Lazerwarz by Mark Shepherd the third in the Elvendude series.
From Fast Food to Fast Lasers--Dobie's ambitions didn't extend much past working in fast food--until the Lazerwarz arena came to town. There he discovered the world of laser tag and, with it, a warrior's persona he never knew he possessed. Then a goddess in disguise picks him up in a shiny red Corvette, and the fireworks really get started.
Just to recap what was in the last newsletter, I will be putting new releases from Josepha Sherman, Mark Shepherd and Holly Lisle, and, of course, Misty herself, in the newsletters from now on! I've gotten good responses so far, so I'll keep the releases coming!
