Monday is here, and instead of moping about getting up early I ask you to enjoy this little morsel from a book.
This week the morsel is from a non-fiction book, It’s not something I do much, but I’m a great Bujold fan and is having a great time reading The Vorkosigan Companion in between reading fiction. I’m reading it on my Kindle as Baen was nice enough to include a cd-rom with e-editions (in several different formats) of all the books in the Vorkosigan saga when you bought the hard cover edition of the latest Vorkosigan book, “Cryoburn“. Thank you!
“Shards should have been classified as a “gateway drug”. Once I read the story of Captain Cordelia Naismith and Aral Vorkosigan, the Butcher of Komarr, I was doomed. Since then, I’ve read and reread every novel Lois McMaster Bujold has ever written. (And checking facts for this essay kept hooking me into still more rereading!)
