November 26, 2010: Catching Up With Miles
Are you a fan of Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan Saga, but haven't kept up with the series? Or do you love space opera, and have been thinking you should check this Miles guy out? Did you see our Vorkosigan Saga Sourcebook and RPG and wonder what the background was all about?
Baen has a deal for you!
Baen Books, Ms. Bujold's publisher, has made the entire Vorkosigan Saga -- including the newest, Cryoburn -- free to download from their site. They've even gone to the trouble of making the text available in multiple formats, from HTML to RTF to several mobile reader formats. (The introduction indicates the files may be destined for a physical CD, but there's no obvious way to download it all in a single click.)
Baen is well-known for using the "here's a free book; if you like it, buy the print version" promotions, so download the books, give them a read -- and if you like them, consider buying a couple print copies.
