Go right ahead - the completests will be pleased anyway.

And it appears that your backbrain has already accepted the principle,
now that the selection includes both "Weatherman" (with a warning in the
description) and _The Vor Game_ 

I see two typos in the titles (say that fast) with one 'Vorkosigan
Series' and one 'Vorkosigan Daga'. Perhaps 'Vorkosigan Saga Story' for
the shorts would be better ?

It seems to be possible to post "Book Extras" about a series via Amazon's
Shelfari.com - see DW's A Mighty Fortress for an example - which then
appear as a link in the book's description in the Kindle store.  "Book
Extras" for 'Vorkosigan Saga' and TSK would be good.

It would also be a good idea if the Amazons would arrange your Kindle
editions to appear under the paper title as another format, just as
audiobooks do.

Does anyone know how to arrange for this to happen ?
