I'm mostly just a lurker here, but I've mentioned a couple times that
I'm working on reading all the Hugo winning novels in chronological
order. Well, I'm up to the early 90s and just finished the Hyperion
series, so next up is the Vorkosigan saga. Since the series includes
three Hugo winners and because of the massive amounts of praise I've
seen for it on this newsgroup, I've decided to read the whole saga.
Here's a nice picture of all the paperbacks and hardcovers lined up on
the shelf above my computer:
Despite being a fairly avid science fiction reader in the late 80s and
early 90s, I somehow never read anything from this series. Possibly
because if I ever did run across any of the books in stores, I might
have assumed that they were romance novels based on the cover art.
Why does Baen have so many covers that I'd be embarrased to be seen
reading in public?
Anyway, did you ever have that feeling of "I wish I could read that
again for the first time?" Well, that's where I'm at with the
Vorkosigan books. If it turns out that I don't like them, I'm holding
the newsgroup responsible...
