''The Snow Queen Series'', by Joan D. Vinge, is a series of four books set in the far future world of the Hegemony. The first and titular book, "The Snow Queen", is a multifaceted, old-fashioned SpaceOpera cast in the form of a high-tech fairy tale, with nods to ''Franchise/{{Dune}}'' and [[Myth/CelticMythology Welsh Mythology]]. It won the 1981 Hugo Award for its author.

Basically there is something for everyone in this book: feminism, adventure, romance, empire building, love triangles, exotic cultures. A sequel, "The Summer Queen", was later written, as well as two ancillary novels, World’s End and Tangled up in Blue, which fill in the plot and answer questions about what happened between the two longer books. The books were published in this order:

** The Snow Queen (1981)
** World's End (1984)
** The Summer Queen (1991)
** Tangled Up in Blue (2000)

However, the timeline of the books is as thus:

** The Snow Queen
** Tangled Up in Blue
** World's End
** The Summer Queen

* MalignedMixedMarriage: According to Elsevier, highborn Kharemoughi look down on any Kharemoughi-offworlder relationship. This emphatically includes Elsevier's own marriage to Kharemoughi Tech TJ Aspundh: her Kharemoughi niece-by-marriage treats her with bare civility. Though Gundhalinu is not married to the Tiamatan Moon, he is scorned, and eventually even accused of treason, for falling in love with her.
