I don't know of any, and I don't read Bujold either (tried, then tried
some more, finally admitted to myself that I didn't like it even if
everyone else seems to) so I'll throw something else in the ring:
I've just been rereading Diane Duane's _Stealing the Elf-King's Roses_
and it struck me that it's essentially the same story as _The Merlin
Conspiracy_: imbalance in the worlds perceived, dealt with and finally
solved by unlikely people who are caught up in it. With the major
reshuffling at the end, too.
I can't write a long, reasoned and interesting essay about it, but has
anyone else read both? Any opinions?
