Cryoburn (Vorkosigan Saga) Lowest new price: $2.50
Lowest used price: $1.61
List price: $7.99
Author: Lois McMaster Bujold
Brand: Baen

A New York Times hardcover bestseller, this is the long-awaited NEW installment in the hugely-popular, award-winning science fiction adventure series. Miles Vorkosigan, troubleshooter for the Barrayaran Galactic Empire, takes on the corrupt and dangerous ruling elite of a world where immortality is a commodity to be bought, sold and bartered for power.

Kibou-daini is a planet obsessed with cheating death. All well and good, so long as they kept to themselves.  But now the Kibou-daini are attempting to franchise out their Fountain of Youth wares to the rest of the galaxy and the Barrayar  Galactic Empire is none too pleased with the implications. 

Cue Miles Vorkosigan, malformed royal troublemaker—but also heir and savior of empire. On Kibou-daini, Miles unearths a war of generations as the oldsters in charge refuse to die and their descendants threaten outright patricide, matricide and maybe even genocide—the prize being a big fat slice of the immortality pie.  Bribery, corruption, conspiracy, kidnapping–something is rotten on Kibou-daini, and Miles is up to his neck in trouble and adventure once more.

Vorkosigan's Game: The Vor Game, Borders of Infinity, and the Mountains of Mourning

Vorkosigan's Game: The Vor Game, Borders of Infinity, and the Mountains of Mourning Lowest new price: $24.95
Lowest used price: $3.99
Author: Lois McMaster Bujold

The Vorkosigan Saga is a series of science fiction novels and short stories set in a common fictional universe by American author Lois McMaster Bujold. The first of these was published in 1986 and the most recent in 2016. Works in the series have received numerous awards and nominations, including three Hugo award wins. Bujold's approach varies, sometimes crossing genres. All the novels include humor and comedy, sometimes very black and juxtaposed with tragic deaths or losses. She mixes military adventure, political thriller, romance, and the whodunit in various proportions. Miles Naismith Vorkosigan was not a mutan, though he was often mistaken for one. Cursed with brittle bones that neither grew nor healed properly, a dwarf-like body and a face prematurely lined with the agony of too many corrective surgeries, and too many people who would not accept his difference. Miles refused to hide behind his Vor rank. With a brilliant mind, courage honed by a desire for adventure, and an ever-ready sense of the absurd, he carved out his own place in the galactic scheme. This omnibus includes 1) THE VOR GAME (1990) - When his boyhood chum, Gregor, the Imperial Emperor, goes AWOL, chance places the exiled ensign Miles Vorkosigan in a position to extricate Gregor, the Dendarii Mercenaries, and himself from a very sticky and potentially deadly political situation, 2) THE BORDERS OF INFINITY (1987) - The adventures of Miles Vorkosigan continue in these three tales, in which Miles must play detective in a murder case, adopt his undercover persona for a rescue mission, and play hero for a POW camp and a deeply distressed damsel, and 3) THE MOUNTAINS OF MOURNING (1989) - Miles Vorkosigan is sent to a small mountain village to investigate the murder of an infant, killed because she had a physical defect. Miles must deal with deep-seated prejudice against "mutants" and uncover the real killer in this novella that won both the Hugo Award and Nebula Award.
