DESCRIPTIONLady Dame Honor Harrington isn't alone. Her life touches others--and their lives touch hers--directly, or indirectly, whether as a naval officer, steadholder, or duchess. In this collection, New York Times best-selling author Timothy Zahn weighs in with a story of the heavy cruiser HMS Fearless; a brilliant young tactical officer on temporarily detached duty; Solarian con men; secret weapons that aren't quite what they seem to be; naval spies, spooks, and dirty tricks; courage and honor; and a surprising glimpse into one of Admiral Sonja Hemphill's most crucial technological innovations. Another New York Times best-selling author, John Ringo, offers his unique blend of nonstop action and deliciously skewed humor in two offerings. The Peep planet of Prague and its brutally repressive StateSec regime will never be the same again after the unscheduled, unofficial, and thoroughly catastrophic visit by a pair of Manticoran Marines with a most peculiar taste in their holiday destinations. And then there's the question of what an explosively expanding navy does with the personnel who can't quite cut the mustard.Jane Lindskold gives us the story of a prince on the brink of maturity and an extraordinary young Grayson woman named Judith--a victim of Masadan brutality, who confronts insurmountable odds in a desperate effort to lead her sisters to freedom--or--death among the stars. Eric Flint tells us the story of an idealistic young StateSec officer who finds himself in the right place at the right time following the fall of Oscar Saint-Just. Young Victor Cachat could influence the loyalty of an entire sector ... if he's only lucky enough to manage to stay alive long enough to try. Andfinally, David Weber himself gives us the tale of the first Grayson midshipwoman on her "snotty cruise" at a time when internal tensions threaten the entire future of the Manticoran Alliance and people are about to rediscover the fact that the Peeps are far from the only predators hiding in the stars.
Five of the finest military science fiction writers of today contribute to this collection of stories of the "Honorverse." Along with Weber, this compilation features John Ringo, Eric Flint, Jane Lindskold, and Timothy Zahn.
Readers can't get enough of Honor Harrington and her world, and here David Weber is again, accompanied by some of the top science fiction writers in the field, with new adventures of the best starship commander in the galaxy, and explorations of previously uncharted corners of her universe. It's a party-and you're invited!
