Lois McMaster Bujold Announces New Cordelia Vorkosigan Novel Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen

Next year will see a new installment in Lois McMaster Bujold’s Hugo- and Nebula-winning Vorkosigan Saga! Bujold recently announced on her Goodreads blog that her new novel Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen will be published in February of 2016 (tentatively) from Baen Books.

In a bit of great timing, 2016 will also mark the 30th anniversary of the publication of Bujold’s first three Vorkosigan Saga novels: Shards of Honor, The Warrior’s Apprentice, and Ethan of Athos.

Bujold wouldn’t say much about the plot, not wanting to provide any spoilery information, aside from this:

It is not a war story. It is about grownups.

With the last few books focusing on Miles Vorkosigan, it will be interesting to see Bujold return to Cordelia’s perspective for her new book.

Also coming in July 2015 is Edward James’ full-length study of Bujold’s body of work from University of Illinois Press.
