I wish there’d been more of the interstitial stuff. Some deep and provocative thoughts in “The Mountains of Mourning”, as well as the classic murder-mystery plot, make that story probably my favorite, with the tragedy-laden eponymous prison camp story coming in second and “Labyrinth” in third Taura’s impulsive request to Miles in that story being one of the less plausible things Bujold has written, IMObut they’re all good reads.
