"Not everyone would envy young Lord Miles Naismith Vorkosigan, even though he had formed his own mercenary fleet before attending the naval academy, and even though his mother was the beautiful Cordelia, the ship captain who has taught the Lords of Barrayar much about the perils of sexism. Even the fact that Miles is third in line to the throne and personally owns a major chunk of his home planet would not tempt any normal person to change places with him. When assassins came to rid the world of his father, his mother, pregnant with Miles, was in the line of fire, and Miles was but an egg for the omelet in an all too literal sense. Thanks to heroic medical intervention, Miles survived his near fatal brush with war gas--as a pain-filled dwarf with bones as weak and brittle as some malign composite of chalk and glass. Miles is often mistaken for a mutant by his mutant loathing countrymen. But there is one who does envy him, who wants to be him: his brother, his cloned stranger formed from tissue stolen from Miles when he was a child. For Mark Vorkosigan was created and raised up for only one purpose: to become Miles, to murder and replace him. In Brothers in Arms that conspiracy was routed and Mark made more or less compliant to his new Miles-less fate. But in the intervening years Mark has learned that without Miles he is ... nothing. The new and better Mark doesn't really want to kill his brother, but still it may come to that: Mark to stay, Miles to go ..."--Publisher's description

Lois McMaster Bujold by Edward James( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lois McMaster Bujold has won more Hugo Awards for Best Novel than anyone except Robert A. Heinlein; both authors won four. Her Falling Free (1988) won both the Nebula and the Hugo Awards, and her Vorkosigan series, still underway, has become the standard of comparison for space opera. She is one of the several sf authors who have successfully bridged sf and fantasy. Professor James's book surveys all her works (how otherwise to do her justice) but concentrates on the sf books, including the Vorkosigan series. While working within established genres, Bujold has displayed her mastery of them by introducing themes seldom encountered in sf--especially disabilities and biases against them--and extending some of the most important traditional themes--especially the treatment of aliens as forms of racism. Bujold has a wide following, an official Web site (, and can boast of several significant essays written about her. But this is the first full-length study of her work and should be one of many in the series to set the foundations for further study and discussion"--
