Cryoburn by Lois McMaster Bujold

Cryoburn is Bujold's latest Miles Vorkosigan adventure.  He's off to investigate a planet that specializes in cryonics and gets lost in the Cryocombs...  Then he meets a lot of interesting people--and only some of them are/were frozen.  Oh, there are some interesting animals too.   Time has passed for him and his family, btw...  (I pre-ordered this from amazon and discovered that it comes with a CD.):

"You are about to start playing with a new Baen CD-ROM. Welcome! It includes not only the latest book in the series, Cryoburn, but the ENTIRE Vorkosigan Saga in several formats—and The Vorkosigan Companion—all of it beautifully unencrypted and unencumbered. But wait, there’s more! Also on this disk are interviews with author Lois McMaster Bujold, and various other interesting tidbits including a sample of the French language Miles Vorkosiagn graphic novel! More than fourteen novels for free—and with no stupid codes to work around."
