A review by kimu
The Physicians of Vilnoc, by Lois McMaster Bujold


I’m relieved that I didn’t read this right when it was published. The coincidental parallels to the COVID-19 pandemic at that point might have been too hard and I would have struggled with what is an excellent novella. I tend to fall behind with my Penric reading, and then have the delightful experience of rereading the entire series AND having several new novellas to read. This is an extraordinarily good contribution to the story of Penric & Desdemona, with a new feeling to this specific work when reading it for the first time in June 2021.
