Apr 20, Janet rated it liked it. Miles being Miles, he sets about restoring order armed with nothing but the force of his personality literally nothing, as his clothes were stolen as soon as he entered the camp. Many names sound the same. He’s nothing to look at, standing not five-feet tall in his boots, with a skewed spine and bones that easily break. A great collection of Vorkosigan novellas that follow Miles in a few shorter adventures.

Little humor was involved, and the idea that Miles could be some sort of religious guru, however tongue-in-cheek, seemed off. This might be my favorite Miles infiniyt of lnfinity series so far. Surprisingly sad in the end, and the cause of it felt a bit unnecessary to me, but maybe that’s because it was so sudden and I’m guessing that was probably part of the author’s point Short stories never build the same kind of momentum, and never really aim to, and that leaves me kind of cold.
