So, the poll asks: What is your favorite? It doesnt ask: Which is the best?

Favorite? Vorkosigan, followed by Uplift, followed by Dune.
Greatest? Dune, without question. Uplift would be next, if you just took the 2nd and 3rd books. But book 1 is meh, and the second trilogy started out unreadable and i never went bast book 4. So Vorkosigan gets the number 2 spot for greatest of the three.

Meanwhile, we're talking Miles Vorkosigan. One of the greatest SFF characters ever written.
