Brust presents the latest novel in his "New York Times"-bestselling Vlad Taltos series.
From the Publisher:

Author Bio
Steven Brust
Stephen Brust provides further evidence of Minnesota as a hotbed of science fiction and fantasy activity, joining Neil Gaiman, Poul Anderson, Clifford D. Simak, Gordon R. Dickson, Emma Bull, Will Shetterly, and others who also live, or lived, there. Much of Brust's work has been a part of the complex Dragaeran Empire series. Beginning with JHEREG (1983), the series follows the saga of the assassin antihero after whom the series is named. Brust's Hungarian ancestry infuses the series, which is set in a kind of alternate world version of Eastern Europe where dragons and magic are commonplace. Equally influenced by the works of Alexander Dumas, Brust has also written several novels in this series based loosely on the Three Musketeers, THE PHOENIX GUARDS (1991) and FIVE HUNDRED YEARS AFTER (1994). Brust is also a musician has recorded a solo CD (which he has stated on several occasions will be his ONLY solo CD) of folk music, and several CDs with the groups, including Cats Laughing--a marginally well-known (in the sf community, anyway) neo-folk band. In 1992, he combined his interests in music and fiction with THE GYPSY, a novel co-written with Megan Lindholm that was released as a CD-ROM containing music the band Boiled in Lead, featuring another Cats Laughing member, Adam Stemple--who, himself, is the son of fantasy author Jane Yolan.

Praise

"Fans will love the full cast of favorite characters and the resolution of longstanding plots and mysteries, and like most of Brust's books, this witty, wry tale stands well alone and is very accessible to new readers." 02/14/2011

"Tiassa showcases Brust's great versatility and the vast sweep of the Vlad Taltos books. Like all the books in the series, it's a cracking adventure yarn, a finely tuned piece of literary storytelling, and a frustrating reminder that the adventures of Vlad Taltos will take many more books to complete, and these books aren't finished, and you will have to wait and wait and wait to read them." - Cory Doctorow 05/02/2011
