Bibliography – Lois McMaster Bujold [Vorkosigan Saga]

Here’s my listing of all the books and novellas and the name of the matching Baen omnibus edition. You know, it’s really rather tricky to locate all these books, in order, and cost-effectively.  There are omnibusses (though that ought to be omnibi, doncha think).

At the end of Miles, Mutants and Microbes, there is a very nice chart of book-title, Miles’ age during that book, and a mini-comment about the contents of the book.  That’s how I realized I had missed reading the book Memory.

In the summer of 2011, I went a lot nuts reading all the Miles Naismith Vorkosigan books I could find.  Actually I spent money to get them all in digital versions – very good thinking on the part of the Baen Free Library to get me hooked like that.

Coming soon: fun-size reviews of just about all of the following.  I read the bulk of them starting in June 2011 through today.
