One of the all time great science fiction series. .
This reading order lists all the novels and short stories of Lois McMaster Bujold’s Vorkosigan Saga, and every book that any of them has been published in.
It follows the internal chronology rather than the publishing order of the books themselves. The multiple books listed for most entries are listed in order of publication, earliest to latest. In the interests of clarity, novels appear in bold and short stories/novellas in italics.
- Okay, most people – including Lois McMaster Bujold – do not include this as a part of the Saga, but I do. It features characters who are clearly spiritual, if not literal, ancestors of the Vorkosigan family. Plus, there’s always room for a good Sherlock Holmes story.
- This is the short story (distinguished by the “The”) of that title.
- This is the framing story from the anthology of the same title. It is not reprinted in the more recent omnibus reprints of the saga.
