It's here!


  • Jackson's Whole's neighbors find it a "secretly useful interface with the sub-economy" – fic plz?

  • JW was a hijacker-base only a century or two back – wasn't this about when Barrayar was rediscovered?

  • Money laundering, weapons deals, bio/gene stuff, fence and ransom deals... such delicious fic ideas.

  • Poor Bel, so lonely – and aware of Miles' secret identity, perhaps?

  • Saris on women, coffee-colored skin on Bharaputrans, the very name Bharaputra – it would seem that JW got a significant population/cultural influx from India.

  • Uterine replicators practical only for last ~200 years – so the Cetagandans, herms, and quaddies are significantly more recent than I'd thought.

  • Quaddies aren't widely known of outside quaddiespace.

  • The treatment of Bel being in love is rather ... heterocentric. Bel flirts with a man? Bel's playing up the womanly side! Bel flirts with a woman? Bel's playing up the manly side!

  • Bel's suggestion of "Fry 'em from orbit" re: Ryoval was very apt, especially considering what will come up later.

  • Nicol's contract woes are sadly familiar to all who've looked into migrant workers from Southeast Asia.

  • Between The Vor Game and this, Miles seems to be a bit of a duct expert.

  • why is there a dubcon sex scene here WTF LMB no

  • Oh, Miles, and his lessons on tactics.

  • Tung quotes Sun Tzu in the orginal Chinese? Oh Ky.

  • Hey, a timeline! 4 000 years after the death of Sun Tzu, which happened c. 496 BCE – so it's c. 3500 CE.

  • Needed: Miles strangling an enemy with pajama pants/successfully crashing an aircraft by throwing underwear in the air intakes.



Next: "The Borders of Infinity" on the 13th of November.
