Try These Authors
Science fiction and fantasy author Lois McMaster Bujold has found a loyal audience for her far-future SF series centered around the character of Miles Vorkosigan. This series features adventurous character-driven science fiction, ranging from the very serious to the light-hearted, but with a recurring cast of characters who grow and evolve across the span of years. The adventures can span galactic empires, or be concentrated all on one planet. The relationships between the characters are just as important as the far-flung science fiction plots, and most readers are left wanting to know what happens next when each book ends. Other elements common in Bujold's works is snappy, witty dialog, crackling futuristic military strategizing and battles, and heavy doses of political intrigue.
