I should clarify/correct something about the title. Ms. Bujold
solicited title suggestions on the Bujold list, and she mentioned _Wide
Green World_ as an early candidate. A few members of the list had read
the manuscript of the third book (or an ARC, I forget which) and made
some good suggestions.
At some point, Ms. Bujold spoke up and allowed that she wanted one word
titles. I do not remember if this was during the titling of Passage or
Horizon, but it made good sense, it makes for consistent covers (which
are beautiful for this series).
