The Book of Na'Lon

or rather, Inane Ramblings of an Expatriot

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
A word in your shell, like, dear fictional characters...
For just a few hours I would appreciate the sole use of my brain for work purposes. I would like to get on with stuff without internal replays of theme-music, or snatches of scenes to write.

That goes for all Barrayarans, Betans, Drascans and other Sebeceans, Centauri (yes, I know it's been a while since I have paid much attention to you lot), Angels, Evas and pilots and all other Nerv or Seele personnel. And yes, Ta'Kiri, it goes for you, too.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Yep. 'Shards of Honor' to be precise. The foundress of a certain Soc T leant it to me. I can't remember how we ended up getting onto it, but it was at Tolkien 2005. Just before O'moot I then got an email saying 'Vorkosigan' in the title line. It left me somewhat bemused until I suddenly remembered you'd told me about Miles. So I decided the email was safe to open.

Glad I did open it, too, 'cause I have been avidly reading the book since the last weekend. Good stuff, nice prose. And the Barrayaran's are like Centauri on speed. Eat your heart out, JMS! And... Aral Vorkosigan is far more like (I imagine) Melco then I am entirely comfortable with. ;-)

I've got all of the Vorkosigan books except for Mirror Dance, Memory and Komarr (or Falling Free if you count that) - you're welcome to borrow some more :)

Oh, yes, please. But not just yet. Still got the rest of Shards of Honor to go and Barrayar. The copy of SoH I am reading is in an omnibus with Barrayar, conveniently.
