Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a very good set of three novellas set in the Miles Vorkosigan universe. There are a lot of linkages to other stories in the sequence.

The narrative which links the three novellas is set in Miles' hospital room, where he is recovering from major surgery while aged 25, just after the events of "Brothers in Arms." Simon Illyan, the dreaded head of Imperial Security, visits him in hospital to get a more detailed report of two missions Miles had previously carried out. (Illyan needs the details in order to respond to awkward questions being asked by opposition politicians who hope to discredit the Prime Minister, Miles' father Aral Vorkosigan, by suggesting that Miles has been padding his expenses.)

The memories of these two missions which Miles has to remember so as to answer Simon Illyan, and one earlier story of which he is reminded by Simon's questions, constitute the three stories which make up the book.

The first novella, "The Mountains of Mourning" is set when Miles is 20 and has just graduated from the Military academy, just before his first posting in "The Vor Game." Miles is sent to investigate the sudden death out in the sticks of a baby with a harelip. He has to find out whether she was murdered as a mutant, and if so he has the power to act as judge, jury, and executioner. This story is much more grim and downbeat than most of Miles' adventures.

The second novella, "Labyrinth" is set three years later, on Jackson's Whole, shortly after the book "Cetaganda". Miles has been sent to help a scientist to defect - quickly and quietly since "his-soon-to-be-former employer is expected to be highly irate at the lack of a month's notice.

Format: Paperback
This book collects three stories centering on the life of Miles Vorkosigan, crippled covert ops agent and son of a count on a feudal planet newly admitted into a wider galactic society. Two of these stories are good; well told with the typical mix of humour, strong characterisation and and intelligent development of societies expected from this author. However, the third story, "Borders of Infinity", is exceptional. It really is one of the best novellas I've ever read, in any genre. I won't say any more about it for fear of spoilers, but it really is superbly written, well worth the awards it won. Well worth buying this book for that story alone.

Format: Kindle Edition
Originally three novellas were published in magazines: "The Mountains of Mourning", "Labyrinth" and "The Borders of Infinity".

Later a cover story was created to link these three novellas which were published as the book: "The Borders of Infinity".

The earlier reviews refer to the book with its cover story and three novellas. The Kindle version is just "The Borders of Infinity". "The Mountains of Mourning" and "Labyrinth" are available separately; the cover story is not available. The product description only refers to the novella but I studied the customer reviews and did not notice the difference. All three novellas are typically exciting LMB stories; just don't make the same mistake as I did and assume that by purchasing "The Borders of Infinity" you are getting all three novellas and the cover story.

"The Borders of Infinity" starts with Miles entering a Cetagandan prisoner of war camp. The prisoners have gone feral and he is immediately attacked and everything he possesses, including his clothes, stolen. From this unpromising start he sets out to take control of the camp. We do not learn until the end why he is there and what he is doing. This is a cleverly plotted and exciting story. Thoroughly recommended.
