Overview

Your Ticket to the Many Worlds of New York Times Best-Selling Writer David Weber.
First Time in Paperback.

A mammoth volume (over 250,000 words) of the many facets of one of science fiction’s most popular talents. Here are treecats, starships, dragons, alternate history, self-aware Bolo supertanks, wizards, sailing ships, ironclads—and, of course, Weber’s fantastically popular starship commander, Honor Harrington. For nearly two decades, David Weber has been taking enthralled readers to destinations strange and fantastical, from his best-selling Honor Harrington novels and short stories to the heroic fantasy of Bahzell of the Hrandai, and the shared universe stories set in worlds of his own creation, and those of others, such as Eric Flint’s best-selling Ring of Fire series, the popular Bolo series of Keith Laumer and more.

Visit 17th-century Magdeburg for the creation of the United States Navy a hundred and fifty years early, and go with John Paul Jones as he wins the Revolutionary War—For George III. Fight dragons and demons with U.S. Marines in a most unexpected campaign, find out how humans and treecats first met and share Honor Harrington’s very first battle. But once you step into the worlds of Weber, you may not want to go home again.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

This hefty and moving reprint collection of nine novellas written between 1995 and 2007 fills in the corners of Weber's celebrated Honor Harrington series (most recently 2005's At All Costs) and offers several other variations on political and military themes. In the title story, 20-year-old Honor joins the crew of War Maiden, bound for interstellar antipiracy duty as the Royal Manticoran Navy builds up for confrontation with the People's Republic. "The Captain from Kirkbean," a rousing alternate naval-history yarn, and "Sword Brother," wherein U.S. Marines are pulled into a parallel universe's sword-and-sorcery battlefield, focus on the responsibilities and price of leadership and the necessity of cooperation despite intrinsic differences. "Miles to Go" observes interstellar conflict and politics from the unusual perspective of a war robot that learns human compassion. With restraint and good taste, Weber tempers his mourning for war's destruction with heartfelt celebrations of the honorable men, women, creatures and machines of the armed forces. (Sept.)

    Good Story Collection.

    I buy e-books but settled for paperback. I like Weber's work. This collection of his stories has many entries I have read elsewhere. The new and unique work was well worth the price. Good Read!
