At tor.com, this post: Rereading the Vorkosigan Saga: Diplomatic Immunity
Which features this edition of the book in question:
I don’t know what it is with LMB’s Vorkosigan books. I know publishers are responsible for some of the covers and that she herself is responsible for others. But I still think near-uniformity of awfulness suggests an actual curse.
Somewhere, someone is poking pins in an effigy of a Vorkosigan book, murmuring spells to ensure that never — never — will a Vorkosigan book get published with a good cover.
Anyway … for some reason, though I don’t think it’s one of her best, I have recently had a faint urge to re-read Cryoburn. Probably I will, after I finish the book I’m currently reading — Liz Williams 4th Detective Chen novel.
