Three novellas by Lois McMaster Bujold, published as Borders of Infinity and in other omnibus editions as noted:

  • “The Borders of Infinity,” in Miles Errant (read this one if you can only read one)
  • “The Mountains of Mourning,” in Young Miles
  • “Labyrinth,” in Miles, Mystery, and Mayhem

Read as many as you can or like. We’ll definitely discuss the first, and the others if people get to them. Borders of Infinity (1989, 2017) is back in print but has limited availability from CPL, try for the other omnibuses if you can’t find it.
