Then she lost the book. Thanks, sweet-pea! My parents came to visit recently which sparked a mad scramble to tidy the old homestead, and the missing book turned up under a box of baby toys.

With teeth marks in it. Short stories never build the same kind of momentum, and never really aim to, and that leaves me kind of cold. Not so here. Plus, it gives Miles a bit of distance on these stories for a couple of heart-ouchie zingers in his reflections. Neither print order or internal chronological order. As such, I may know a character or location from a later adventure without really understanding where the significance comes from. As I said, this book compiles three novellas, and Bujold simply cannot write a bad story: The Mountains of Mourning - a young, newly graduated Miles is looking for some fun on leave before being assigned.

Instead he ends up travelling into the hillbilly mountains of his home district, to act as judge and jury in a case of baby-murdering.

Sounds grim, huh? This is Miles in detective mode, and young enough to be fretful. Labyrinth - the rescue of Taura! Where did Taura come from? What was their romantic relationship? What did Miles do to piss of Ryoval quite so bad? This is Miles as Admiral Naismith, thinking fast and leaving the world in his wake, eating dust. Pure class. Borders of Infinity - the Dagoola IV rescue mission. Miles walks into a prison camp, friendless and naked.

But still Miles saves the day, with just his brilliant brain and his balls of steel. This Borders of Infinity collection is a very worthwhile addition to the Vorkosiverse.

The Borders of Infinity

Since then at least years before Falling Free or years before Shards of Honor , dozens of planets were colonized and have developed divergent cultures. Due to low genetic diversity on Barrayar during the time of isolation, as well as the memory of the mutations resulting from a nuclear war , a cultural phobia about mutation developed that leads to a high level of xenophobia. Within the series, exploration and colonization of new planets is still ongoing, most notably on the planet Sergyar. Interstellar travel is achieved by "jumping" from solar system to solar system via spatial anomalies known as wormholes that create tunnels in a five-dimensional space. Typically wormholes are bracketed by space stations, military or commercial, which provide ports for jump travel.
