I have hard evidence in the form of a delivered manuscript, which I have read. We'll be publishing it in hardcover in November.(PNH, rasfw, <email@example.com>). About, BTW, Barritt's Tomb.
By the way, I am Jake Kesinger, not Steven Brust. His address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Steven Karl Zoltán Brust was born on November 23, 1955. His parents raised both their children and the household plants by the system of Benevolent Neglect (and insist that it worked with the plants). His care and supervision have since been taken over by his family: his wife, Reen; his son, Corwin Edward; and his twin daughters, Aliera Jean and Carolyn Rozsa. He presently earns his living as a systems programmer for a computer manufacturer and as a drummer for a suburban white reggae C&W band. He also plays the guitar, acts in community theatre, fences, practices pistol-shooting, studies Shotokan karate, invents traditional Hungarian cuisine, serves as vice-president of the Minnesota Science Fiction Society, and is planning to get some sleep Real Soon Now.Five Hundred Years After has:
Steven Brust is a Minneapolis writer of Hungarian ancestry and the father of several novels and four children, non necessarily in that order. In addition to writing, cooking, and starting arguments, Brust plays drums, banjo, and guitar in a variety of musical groups, including the legendary Cats Laughing. He lives in a large Victorian house and he drives a car that must be seen to be believed.
Paarfi: Very well. Tell me, then, what do the initials ``PJF'' after your name indicate?See also Phoenix's Explanation.
Brust:(annoyed) I said I don't want to get into that.
Paarfi:(stiffly) I beg your pardon. But if you are going to go so far as to insist on having obscure initials after your name on the very title page of a novel, I should think the reader would have the right to know what these initials indicate. Is it an elaborate joke? Is it a statement of that you hope to accomplish? Come, sir. Here is your chance to explain to your public.
(Brust declines to answer)
Paarfi: As you wish.

The Man also has a homepage on wavefront.
ISBN: 0-812-56410-3). It's not canon, there are sections which blatantly contradict most of the end of Taltos, and I can't find Devera. Some of Brust's characters apppearing include Sethra, Aliera, Morrolan, Zerika II, Adron, Sethra the Younger, the Sorceress in Green, and Vlad. There are illustrations; I suppose the artist did the best he could but his Dragaerans don't look anything different than humans (and one of them has a moustache!). It has to be between Taltos and Yendi timeline wise, but other than that I can't place it any closer. More to come.
He has also written the following non-Dragaera books:
The cycle is described by the following poem (copyright Steven Brust)
Phoenix sinks into decay
Haughty dragon yearns to slay.
Lyorn growls and lowers horn
Tiassa dreams and plots are born.
Hawk looks down from lofty flight
Dzur stalks and blends with night.
Issola strikes from courtly bow
Tsalmoth maintains though none knows how.
Vallista rends and then rebuilds
Jhereg feeds on others' kills.
Quiet iorich won't forget
Sly chreotha weaves his net.
Yendi coils and strikes unseen
Orca circles, hard and lean.
Frightened teckla hides in grass
Jhegaala shifts as moments pass
Athyra rules minds' interplay
Phoenix rise from ashes gray.
