Autumn Adventures

My retreat from the post-Amazon-apocalypse-GoodReads. My shelves and my reviews, I hope, will find a safe haven here.


I like to read epic fantasy (the bigger, thicker and longer, the better) and science fiction (perfer space operas).  I also enjoy the occasional biography or history non-fiction.


Out in the real world, I'm an IT professional in the Legal industry.  Tech doesn't scare me or phase me.

Miles in Love (Vorkosigan Adventure) - Lois McMaster Bujold Follow this link for my review of Komar. 4 starsFollow this link for my review of A Civil Campaign 4.5-5 stars'Winterfair Gifts' (novella) 4 stars'Winterfair Gifts' grants us a glimpse of Vorkosigan House through the eyes of Roic, the newest member of the armsmen, infamous for his spectacular brief rescue of Dr. Borgas and his assistants in A Civil Campaign. Roic feels he failed Lord Miles then and second-guesses himself constantly. Galactic gifts and guests begin to arrive for Miles and Ekaterrin's wedding, further stressing Roic's confidence and competence. Taura's arrival further confuses Roic and eventually places him in the unenviable position of accuser tempered with trust. Quite a different viewpoint, a newcomer to Miles' orbit looking on with confusion and awe as Miles spins and whirls, gathering great friends and cunning enemies like a singularity traps light itself. My favorite Vorkosigan Saga omnibus to date. Only one more to go and then a few months wait for the publication of CryoBurn.
