    Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan Saga Reading-Order Flowchart

    Hello. I have created over a dozen reading-order flowcharts for various large and popular SF series. Here is one that I created for the Vorkosigan series. It is complete, as of today (March 2, 2021), but I am hoping it will not remain so for very long. I hope you all like it. Regards, Mike

    Cryoburn by Lois McMaster Bujold

    Now we’ve got the romance stuff behind us this series has, at least for non-romance lovers such as myself, definitely improved. It’s also interesting to see how it has morphed from distinctly military biased SF to SF mystery thrillers, and quite successfully so. In fact I’d go so far as to say...

    Which Vorkosigan book to start with?

    Miles Vorkosigan seems to be the key character in Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan series, so I'd like to read the novels that feature him. However, the first few books, Falling Free, Shards of Honour, and Barrayar, don't appear to feature him as a main character - he only seems to come up in...

    A Civil Campaign by Lois McMaster Bujold

    Well I was warned so I can’t really complain. A Civil Campaign is first and foremost a Romance and only a distant second a Science Fiction book. It is a romance with some (slight) plot rather than a plot with some romance, and I am sadly not too keen on such sugary romance (it is too much like...

    Komarr by Lois McMaster Bujold

    This is probably my favourite book so far in the Vorkosigan series; my major complaint with Bujold’s writing up to this point – her often dreadful lack of plausibility – is largely absent in this book as is, somewhat surprisingly, virtually any significant action. I would normally classify...
