A buddy read with Choko and Maria.
It’s Essence of Miles, without some of the external stuff from his Naismith adventures and without an Amazon he can try to make Lady Vorkosigan, which gets on my nerves sometimes. On to The Vor Game. He has that quality that o for great leaders – the ability to infect the mind with an idea.
Borders of Infinity by Lois McMaster Bujold
A seemingly odd novella that showcases Mile doing the honorable and caring thing, at the expense of the mission. He’s a softy with a temper, an impulsive tyrant with boundless energy and ideas. Some deep and provocative thoughts in “The Mountains of Mourning”, as well as the classic murder-mystery plot, make that story probably my favorite, with the tragedy-laden eponymous prison camp story coming in second and “Labyrinth” in th A collection of three very different short stories from Miles Vorkosigan’s colourful military and political history, linked by a framing story that seems a bit thin in terms of logistics and character motivation, but works well enough to link them all together.
This one comes right after Labrynth. In this one, Miles goes undercover in a Cetagandan prisoner-of-war camp. Being Vor, Miles says, means never mustering out.

Bujold’s short framing story for those who may also wish to read the other two novellas he Mountains of Mourning and Labyrinth. Make sure you use the pond incident from Komarr in your answer. The 3 novellas are his flashbacks explaining the expenses. See all reviews. Miles is a genius, but he has to work twice as hard as everyone loiis to keep up physically.

Buddy read with Choko and Evgeny. Seriously there was no need for this mix of chronologically different tales – and this is the only reason for 1 star less from otherwise practically perfect read. The dome-shaped prison is actually a complete sphere, but the bottom half is underground. The second, Labrynth, he has to rescue a scientist who wants to defect. Miles has completed his time at the Imperial Military Academy and is on home leave awaiting his first assignment.
infinigy No sex, the murder is before the story, and minimal violence. The pilot was expecting such turbulence that the beverage service was canceled and the seatbelt light was never extinguished, but if there were any bumps I didn’t notice them.
This collection of novellas contain my favorite of all the Miles stories, the novella called The Mountains of Mcmster. Pitt was then released to be murdered by his fellows as a traitor, leaving the commandant without blood on her hands.

The result of this has been chaos and the victimisation of the weak by the strong. Miles rounded up Tris and Oliver, explaining to them that he intended the troops rescued to become the core of the new Marilac resistance, and sent them to facilitate unloading onto the freighters in orbit. The world Miles was born into has been once more rediscovered by the star faring humanity who originally settled it, and the imperial houses who rule his planet are fighting for their place and survival among the stars.
Even if Miles’s galloping libido in the 2nd and 3rd stories does occasionally make me want to smack him. This would not be easy, however, since the Cetagandans were employing a state-of-the-art force domeimpossible to breach from the inside, to keep the prisoners in check with minimal effort.

Before being assigned to duty, Miles accidentally encounters a distraught country woman on the Barrayaran estate who demands justice for her infant daughter, the victim of infanticide. Her fantasy mcmastwr HarperCollins includes the award-winning Chalion series and the Sharing Knife tetralogy; her science fiction from Baen Books features the perennially bestselling Vorkosigan Saga.

Sometimes, Bujold goes wonky on justice, or even simple consequences. Term paper folks still with me? Of borderd he has an alternate plan but being that everything is monitored, he has to just control the situation. The food was delivered twice daily in a single pile randomly located around the perimeter of the dome, forcing prisoners to fight each other for their food ration.
It’s sad but not horrific or angst-ridden. Remember that this was first published in way before ‘reality’ TV shows. I do disagree with the characters’ sex lives; byjold me integrity requires monogamy with an official certificate.
It’s in this volume, but I can’t remember the name of it.
