Sentimental yet sardonic [userpic]

September 6th, 2010 (04:35 pm)

draconin's earlier fic rec has reminded me that it is my firm duty to inform all that there is only a month and a half remaining until the publication of the new Lois McMaster Bujold Miles Vorkosigan book Cryoburn.

(Amazing what a random Amazon snoop around can turn up!)

Kibou-daini is a planet obsessed with cheating death. Barrayaran Imperial Auditor Miles Vorkosigan can hardly disapprove—he’s been cheating death his whole life, on the theory that turnabout is fair play. But when a Kibou-daini cryocorp—an immortal company whose job it is to shepherd its all-too-mortal frozen patrons into an unknown future—attempts to expand its franchise into the Barrayaran Empire, Emperor Gregor dispatches his top troubleshooter Miles to check it out.

On Kibou-daini, Miles discovers generational conflict over money and resources is heating up, even as refugees displaced in time skew the meaning of generation past repair. Here he finds a young boy with a passion for pets and a dangerous secret, a Snow White trapped in an icy coffin who burns to re-write her own tale, and a mysterious crone who is the very embodiment of the warning Don’t mess with the secretary. Bribery, corruption, conspiracy, kidnapping—something is rotten on Kibou-daini, and it isn’t due to power outages in the Cryocombs. And Miles is in the middle—of trouble!

There's just been a big ficathon on the Bujold community bujold_fic to encourage everyone to get their ideas written up before they're Jossed.

Ooooh, yeah! I've had that one on pre-order with Amazon since April! :-) I can't wait. Plus the new Dresden novel as well (unfortunately not due out until April '11).
