Master the Vorkosiverse!
"I've always tried to write the kind of book I most loved to read: character-centered adventure. Readers return to such books because those characters have become their friends, and there is no limit to the number of times you want to be with your friends again."
—Lois McMaster Bujold, from The Vorkosigan Companion.
It's the companion for everything Miles and Vorkosigan: Insightful essays, encyclopedic entries on the characters, the plots and—most of all—the fantastic world-building! Plus, an extensive story-behind-the-story essay on the creation of the books, and a Bujold mini-biography!
"Bujold mixes quirky humor with action [and] superb character development. [E]normously satisfying."
