Book of the Week: Captain Vorpatril’s Alliance.

I haven’t really read much that was new this week, but I pulled Lois McMaster Bujold’s Captain Vorpatril’s Alliance out from the depths of my Kindle and it was rewarding. I think that Bujold has grown to be much more affectionate towards Barrayar than she was at the beginning of the series. Perhaps the planet grew on her.

Book of the Week: A Civil Campaign.

I’m kind of unsure whether I should make Lois McMaster Bujold’s A Civil Campaign the Book of the Week.  I mean, yes, it’s bloody brilliant. The Vorkosigan series generally is, and Bujold has a remarkable capacity for precipitating out genuine hilarity from the most unpromising of sources. I just don’t know whether or not it’s the best gateway to the entire Vorkosigan series.  Of course, most people here don’t really need to be told to buy this book, do they?  You already know. You probably already have.

Ach, well, maybe somebody will see this post someday in a Google search.

And thus, we say adieu to The Hunt For Red October. (more…)
