This worked much better as a mystery than 'The Mountains Of Mourning' - which may have well been a dummy run for this book - and proves that Bujold is a master mystery writer. Filled with political intrigue and swashbuckling derring do, this proves to be much more in the realms of the later novels.

This novella is basically a murder mystery that works well enough but could have worked better if it had been incorporated into a full book. It also foreshadows Mil

The cover of this omnibus is a hilarious trainwreck. Miles with a mullet, eh? But, who am I to judge a book by it's cover? I've read all these stories before, but the humor and twists are still just as delightful.

The Vor Game doesn't end where you'd expect it to. The first few chapters were originally published as the short story "The Weatherman", and it does feel separate from the rest of the narrative. At any rate, the novel involves mystery and a daring rescue, resolved haphazardly in a very

Contains The Vor Game, Borders of Infinity, and The Mountains of Mourning. Miles Vorkosigan's very first assignment after graduating from the academy is as meteorological officer at Ice Station Zebra. He is sent to address his recurring problems with insubordination. He is not very successful. As the new Chief Weatherman for the camp he has never taken a single course in meteorology and nearly freezes to death. Twice.
Most of the rest of the time Miles acts as Admiral Naismith. He reattaches him

I've now read about 5 of the Vorkosigan books and enjoyed them. Everyone is different, even though about the same world and the same hero. Bujold is an imaginative writer; these books have an underlying theme of discrimination but also good plots full of adventure.
