Science Fiction, Short Stories

Dreamweaver’s Dilemma by Lois McMaster Bujold

This book is half short stories and half essays. The short stories include a Sherlock Holmes story and the title story, Dreamweaver’s Dilemma which first introduced the universe that later come to have Miles and Barrayar in it. The essay section, which I was dreading because I find most non-fiction painfully boring, was actually really interesting and helpful. It includes one about how she goes about writing, which was really interesting because it’s different from the advice you usually hear in some ways and the same in others. It also included an essay about how she eventually got published. Her first book didn’t get accepted until her second book was also finished and they got snapped up together. I’m really glad I read this, I’ve read the fiction parts before but I was glad to have read the whole thing.
