Vorkosigan #10 / #11: Miles in Love: Komarr / A Civil Campaign / Winterfair Gifts (story)
Signed by the author on the title page.Komarr: The solar mirror vital to the terraforming of the conquered planet of Komarr has been shattered by a ship hurtling off course, and it's newly minted Imperial Auditor Miles Vorkosigan's job to find out why. The choice is not a popular one on Komarr, where a betrayal a generation before drenched the name of Vorkosigan in blood. In the political and physical claustrophobia of the domed cities, are the Komarrans surrounding Miles loyal subjects, potential hostages, innocent victims, or rebels bidding for revenge?
A Civil Campaign: It's spring in Vorbarr Sultana, and a person's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love, bio-genetics, love, lack of money, incompatible planetary sexual mores, love, District succession scandals, the Emperor's wedding, and, of course, love. Miles, Mark, and Ivan all have cunning plans to resolve their romantic problems. But if no battle plan survives first contact with the enemy, just imagine what all Miles' friends and relatives can do to his romantic strategy!
