Now the author realized s he has not done with the trilogy universe, but nobody in their right mind would write a sequel to spoil that perfection I mentioned.


I chuckle at his fascination with tall, strong-willed redheads. Of course he has an alternate plan but being that everything is monitored, he has to just control the situation. Not that I succeeded. At times the tone is light-hearted but the overriding themes were truly compelling. Its moments like these that give this series its depth, and make me love it! Fictionwise is publishing these novellas separately, but we decided to leave in Ms.

The only downside to the book is that the three stories, though published in this one book, take place between different sets of the major books. I especially appreciate how Bujold’s characters grow boreers learn over the course of the series My favorite Miles Vorkosigan tale is the one where he rescues prisoners of war.

An enjoyable little novella although it doesn’t add a vast amount to the existing canon of the Vorkosigan saga.

Labyrinth – bumold rescue of Taura! The popular adventures of Miles Vorkosigan, a clever and outlandish science-fiction hero for the modern era, continue in these three tales.

Though Bujold never falls into excessive gruesomeness, it still wasn’t my kind of story. The 3 novellas are his flashbacks explaining the expenses. Miles, Mutants and Microbes. This is hands down the best SciFi series of books I’ve ever read. He is an excellent narrator!
