And now I have read the last of the Miles Vorkosigan novels. It took some time to locate Memory, as it doesn’t seem to have been reprinted nearly as often as the others in the series, And of course I had to wait until everything else had been read before I could read the last book of the series, Diplomatic Immunity.

It’s been a wonderful ride. Miles Vorkosigan is one of the few disabled science fiction heroes, and that’s struck a real chord with me from the beginning. Even after advanced medicine fixes most of the physical limitations caused by his brittle bone syndrome, he still thinks like a person with a disability – not unreasonable, since that’s what he grew up as, and that’s in part how the society he was born into and chose to remain in thinks of him – as a weakling a “mutant,” a damaged being, despite his courage and intelligence and political influence.

It’s a good ending, to see him established in his own country, happily married, a proud parent, with important work to do.

Ave atque Vale, Miles.

At least until I re-read your story again. Or Bujold decides she has something more to day about you.
