An excellent overview of Lois McMaster Bujold

I found this pretty good summary of what makes one of my favourite writers, Lois McMaster Bujold, tick.  I’ve written a review here of A Shard of Honor, but nothing like the breadth Elizabeth (the piece was apparently posted by Jane, but it was actually written by Elizabeth. No, I have no idea who they both are) covers in her post.

There are a couple of points where I’d differ from her, most obviously on the level of humour.  Elizabeth thinks there’s Some humour, whereas I think there’s Shitload-laugh-out-loud moments, especially for the Miles series.  Her humour is thoughtful and witty, not slapstick, and I like that.

Anyway, good coverage of her backlist, and a worth a look see.
