Verklaringen
sarahemmm: Bujold herself calls this space opera, but it is science fiction in that it is about how people deal with a situation that is different from our present. In this case, a world which reverted to the 19th century meeting FTL travel.

lorax : Not science fiction. Mainstream fiction with some SF trappings.

Verklaringen
paradoxosalpha: As an SF author, Leigh Brackett is known for her planetary romances, which are indeed very fine. But this novel, perhaps her most lauded book-length work, involves a more serious and credible look at the future of our society.
