¿Falling Free¿. Engineer Leo Graf is sent to Cay Habitat, where bio-engineering led to ¿Quaddie¿ children having four arms and no legs to perform in a zero gravity environment. His job is to train these Quaddies in welding in space. However, new technology and a bottom line mentality leave the Quaddies expendable unless Leo intervenes.--------------- 'Labyrinth'. Over two centuries after Leo¿s mission, Miles Vorkosigan goes undercover as Dendarii Mercenary Admiral Naismith to escort a genetic research scientist defecting from his current employer on the lawless planet Jackson's Whole. However, instead of completing his secret mission successfully, his pick up refuses to leave without taking his experimental samples with him. However, to obtain them Miles must kill an eight-foot tall bio-engineered killing machine that has the other ¿species¿ buried inside his calf. The new corporate owner of the giant learns of Miles¿ quest leaving the outsider needing help that he receives from enigmatic Bel Thorne and Quaddie musician Nicol.------------ ¿Diplomatic Immunity¿. Imperial auditor Miles Vorkosigan and his wife Ekaterin enjoy their belated intergalactic honeymoon until the ship¿s Tau Cetan captain informs them that a Barrayaran Imperial Courier has an official sealed data disc for him. Emperor Gregor Vorbarra wants Miles to investigate a murder involving an impoundment of a Komarran trader ship on Graf Station in remote ¿Quaddiespace¿.-------------- These well written reprints of three Quaddie tales provide readers with exciting cautionary science fiction thrillers in which Lois McMaster Bujold warns her audience to insure sconce does not cross an ethical line with bioengineering throwaway people. Exciting especially the Miles¿ saga, Quaddie fans will enjoy this omnibus edition.---------- Harriet Klausner
