* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Bujold's original plan was to follow up ''The Warrior's Apprentice'' with a novel about Arde Mayhew, but her editor didn't like it and convinced her to write about quaddies instead.
** Elena Bothari's name was originally supposed to be Nile. Bujold must have liked the name, as it was later recycled to be used as Ekaterin's middle name.
* EpunymousTitle: Several novels have had ''Miles to Go'' as a working title, but it's never made it to publication.
** "Miles to Go" does happen to be the title for the Bujold section of the Creator/BaenBooks webforum.
*** But the one Baen author who actually ''did'' use it was Creator/DavidWeber in one of his ''Literature/{{Bolo}}'' short stories, who was quoting Robert Frost rather than referencing Miles Vorkosigan.
