A Vor in ProvenceA.J. Hall
A Vor in Provence is a crossover between the Lord Peter Wimsey novels of Dorothy L. Sayers and the Vorkosigan Saga by Lois McMaster Bujold, written for the 2018 Intoabar Challenge.
Note: Happens during the early part of Gaudy Night in the Wimsey timeline, and slightly after Brothers in Arms on theVorkosigan timeline.
Harriet Vane is wandering round Europe with her friend Vanessa, looking for local colour. A thunderstorm forces her to take refuge in a hotel bar, where she meets a mysterious young man calling himself Greg Bleakman. But Harriet’s past is about to erupt violently into the present, and the events of today will cast an unforseeably long shadow.
