I re-read “Shards of Honour” somewhat by accident while looking up a quote for a writing exercise. I had remembered it as a decent first entry in brilliant series: Okay sci-fi, but nothing special.

Hoo boy. Re-reading this book showed me just how wrong I was. This book is an excellent example of what sci-fi space romance can look like. I’m not sure if I was in a better frame of mind when re-reading it, or if the knowledge of the older versions of Cordelia and Aral helped, but here’s how much I was into the book: My tooling converts books to text files and opens them in vim, a plain text editor, so that I can copy and paste the quotes into my blog posts, *and I read the entire book in my text editor.
