Tam Lin, by William Shakespeare, as considered canonical on Barrayar: A play by Jo Walton, with specific reference to the works of Pamela Dean and Lois McMaster Bujold (who cooperated) and William Shakespeare (who didn’t).
Tam Lin was aparked by an online discussion of foreign editions of Lois McMaster Bujold’s work. At one point, she observed: “The translators routinely destroy Miles’s beloved Shakespeare. (Remember, at the end of the Time of Isolation, the Barrayarans were discovered to be still be putting on the Bard’s plays, including ‘five new plays mysteriously added to the canon.’ I must come up with the titles of somme of these someday.)”
