About the Author

With over seven and a half million copies of his books in print and seventeen titles on the New York Times bestseller list, David Weber is the science fiction publishing phenomenon of the new millennium. In the hugely popular Honor Harrington series, the spirit of C.S. Forester’s Horatio Hornblower and Patrick O’Brian’s Master and Commander lives on–into the galactic future. Books in the Honor Harrington and Honoverse series have appeared on fourteen best seller lists, including those of The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and USA Today. While Weber is best known for his spirited, modern-minded space operas, he is also the creator of the Oath of Swords fantasy series and the Dahak science fiction saga. Weber has also engaged in a steady stream of bestselling collaborations, including his Starfire series with Steve White, which produced the New York Times bestseller The Shiva Option among others. Weber’s collaboration with alternate history master Eric Flint led to the bestselling 1634: The Baltic War, and his planetary adventure novels with military science fiction ace and multiple national best-seller John Ringo includes the blockbusters March to the Stars and We Few. Finally, Weber’s teaming with Linda Evans produced the bestselling Multiverse series. David Weber makes his home in South Carolina with his wife and children.

Beginnings 3.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 15 reviews.

As with any Anthology, consistency is somewhat lacking in style. There were good stories, there were mediocre stories, but there were no bad stories.

These 5 stories are definitely about beginnings. Leading off is a story about the Earth culture which started interstellar colonization. Second is the story of the very first Battle of Manticore; I think this is before Admiral Saganami's time, let alone Honor's. The next 2 stories (by David Weber) tell about Honor's parents very usual first date and how pre-teen Honor was adopted. Finally, the very first midshipwoman from Burdette Steading never dreamed who would get involved in keeping her in the Grayson Space Navy. She had a much harder time than Abigail Owens seeing the navy as a career and not a first job.

The Actual "Beginnings" by David Weber and friends was a good read and I think it adds depth to the backgrounds of Honor's Parents and other family.

Didn't have as much as I wanted, but did include how Honor met Nimitz in the beginning. A good read.

These are apparently ratings for B&N delivering them the wrong book, and not ratings for the book itself. I ordered the book "Beginnings" by David Weber and that is the book I received. I haven't read it yet, but my 5 star rating is for the service (since the previous ratings were for service) and not the book. Guess I'm just lucky in getting the correct book?

Another complaint that you're delivering a different book than you're advertising.

Why does the E-Book link point to a book by Jon Weber about OZ???

This is not Beginnings by David Weber, the book they will send your nook is Beginnings by Jon M. Weber. On top of that the phone service rep blamed me for clicking on the wrong book when I called to complain and get a refund. Would mark less then 1 star if there was an option to do so.
