Hello, Rangers! It’s once again time to explore the Vorkosiverse with our intrepid Rangers. Paul, Alex, Stina, and Trish (safe from Hurricane Florence in the past), dig into what makes Brothers in Arms such a great addition to Lois McMaster Bujold’s Adventures of Miles Vorkosigan. It basically boils down to the fact that Bujold is willing to make big changes in order to propel her main character’s life forward and sideways and sometimes a bit upside-down. The team discusses new characters (hello, evil clone!) and old, a little bit about Earth as a construct within the Vorkosiverse, how Bujold lets things stick, why Miles is still terrible with women, and a lot more!
Next time in our journey through the Vorkosigan Adventures, we’ll discuss Mirror Dance! It’s possible there are some minor spoilers for this book in this episode as well, because the two are very closely linked.
We hope you enjoy the episode!
