Hello, Rangers! We’re back to dig into the uhhh… I would say 6th book, but this is where things get a little complicated. We skipped Ethan of Athos, because the collective decision by the veterans is that it should be burned in the depths of hell, and went straight to Borders of Infinity, which includes the novellas Borders of Infinity, Labyrinth, and The Mountains of Mourning. In this novel, McMaster Bujold included a framing story in order to tie the trio of short stories together. Paul, Trish, Kate, and Stina (straight off a drop-ship) discuss the stories and why they’re an important addition to the Vorkosiverse, including rich world-building, excellent secondary characters, and some important character building motivations for Miles Vorkosigan himself. Have a listen!
Next time in our journey through the Vorkosigan Adventures, we’ll be discussing Brothers in Arms, a favorite of the vetarans! Will the newbies agree?
We hope you enjoy the episode!
