Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Readers have awarded Lois McMaster Bujold four Hugo Awards for Best Novel, a number matched only by Robert Heinlein. Her Vorkosigan series redefined space opera with its emotional depth and explorations of themes such as bias against the disabled, economic exploitation, and the role of women in society. Acclaimed science fiction scholar Edward James traces Bujold's career, showing how Bujold emerged from fanzine culture to win devoted male and female readers despite working in genres--military SF, space opera--perceived as solely by and for males. Devoted to old-school ideas such as faith in humanity and the desire to probe and do good in the universe, Bujold simultaneously subverted genre conventions and experimented with forms that led her in bold creative directions. As James shows, her iconic hero Miles Vorkosigan--unimposing, physically impaired, self-conscious to a fault--embodied Bujold's thematic concerns. The sheer humanity of her characters, meanwhile, gained her a legion of fans eager to provide her with feedback, expand her vision through fan fiction, and follow her into fantasy.

Book excerpt: Thisvolume of essays continues the establishment of Lois McMaster Bujold as an importantauthor of contemporary science fiction and fantasy. It argues persuasively thatBujold's corpus spans the distance between two full arcs of US feminism, andhas anticipated or responded to several of its current concerns in ways thatinvite or even require theoretical exploration. The fourteen essays collected here provide wide-ranging scholarly analysesof Bujold's work and worlds so far, covering not only the science fiction and fantasyseries, but taking into account the wealth of ancillary material inspired byher works, such as fan fiction and role-playing games. Examining the majorseries through a range of perspectives, including feminist readings, queertheory, and disability studies, this volume aims to establish beyond doubt theseriousness of intent behind Bujold's various artistic projects and provide aset of rich readings of this engaging, experimental, playful, and popularauthor.
