Good!

The Vorkosigan books weren't really my jam, but she's an amazing author.

I greatly enjoyed the core books of the World of the Five Gods series. I have not yet started the 3.X books.

So deserved, great news! I'm in the middle of re-reading Chalion, and I had forgotten how great it is. She's so good at taking a normal interaction between people and wringing bucketloads of tension from it.

I'm surprised, but only because I thought she was already a Grand Master! I picked up my first Vorkosigan book in a Little Free Library and was blown away. I think it was only a matter of months before I'd read all of them and then came down with a serious case of literary withdrawal syndrome. I really REALLY missed those characters. In fact, I'm thinking about starting all over again this summer even though I know how things come out.
