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.

Lois McMaster Bujold has won a shelf full of awards—Hugos, Nebulas, and others—for both her science fiction and fantasy writing. She is one of the most respected names in the field, always delivering polished, thoughtful, and well-crafted writing. She consistently addresses great issues and problems on a human level, where they are faced by quirky, prickly, and very real characters, and her exploration of the theory of reader-response is an important critical contribution. Yet there has been a surprising dearth of serious critical writing about her output—in part because she resists neat and easy classification by genre, politics, or subject matter. This collection of fresh essays aims to correct that situation by presenting critical insights into many aspects of her writing. Attention is given to both her Miles Vorkosigan science fiction series and her Chalion and Sharing Knife fantasy series, as well as the books that fall outside these series.

Es könnte auch alles ganz anders gewesen sein: Odysseus entscheidet sich gegen den Bau des Trojanischen Pferdes; Polyphem, der bösartige Zyklop, ist ein sanftmütiger Riese; Penelope, des Wartens müde, hat längst einen anderen geheiratet oder aber: Als der Held endlich im heimatlichen Ithaka angekommen ist, langweilt er sich bald so sehr, daß er erneut die Segel hißt ... In seinem hochgelobten Debütroman erfindet Zachary Mason Homers Epos vom listenreichen Odysseus und seinen Irrfahrten ganz neu. Spielerisch packt Mason den Klassiker, stellt ihn auf den Kopf und präsentiert einen frischen, zeitgenössischen Roman über die Reise eines Mannes zu sich selbst. Und schafft dabei mit leichter Hand die Illusion, daß dieses Buch der verlorengegangene Urtext von Homers Meisterwerk sein könnte. Mason ist ein wunderbar amüsantes, kluges und wagemutiges Buch gelungen, das den postmodernen Erzählungen von Jorge Luis Borges und Italo Calvino in nichts nachsteht.
