Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan saga is my latest escapism/comfort reading, to fill in the gaps between my difficult acquisition of Dorothy Sayers' Lord Peter books. They're fun and breezy reads, with strong characters and varied, well-considered settings. I'm just sorry I didn't read them when I was younger because I probably would have loved them and Miles beyond words when I was in the full-blown genre phase of my childhood. Still, I am happy to have them now, and already sad about the rapidly-approaching end.Will recommend to: any scifi/fantasy reader who hasn't already devoured them; open-minded (read: not snobby about genre) fans of Lord Peter or Lymond (is it just me or are all of these characters sort of the same man??)
