  1. Note that one of the books that you’ve called out, Barrayar, is actually the 2nd book of the Vorkosigan series; the first novel is Shards of Honor (which is also available at Audible, just not for $4.95). The two are very much connected, with Barrayar basically picking up a few days after Shards of Honor ends, so you may as well buy both. :-)

  2. Yeah, the first book in a series idea often is kind of not obvious. Alan Dean Foster’s series, for example, is totally mixed up – but I think Scott’s notion that we should generally read the books in publication order makes sense to me.
