Wednesday reading — essays on Bujold

What I've been reading

I read Lois McMaster Bujold: Essays on a Modern Master of Science Fiction and Fantasy. I felt like a lot of the essays tended towards bland summaries with the occasional dash of critical namechecking without ever actually saying much. There is some good stuff in the essays on disability, and I liked the essay about the use of alternate history in the Five Gods books. The essay on the Sharing Knife books maybe does the most to really dig into them and see what makes them tick, maybe because they are relatively unpopular.
