David Weber Books Overview

On Basilisk Station

Honor in Trouble: Having made him look a fool, she’s been exiled to Basilisk Station in disgrace and set up for ruin by a superior who hates her. Her demoralized crew blames her for their ship’s humiliating posting to an out of the way picket station. The aborigines of the system’s only habitable planet are smoking homicide inducing hallucinogens. Parliament isn’t sure it wants to keep the place; the major local industry is smuggling; the merchant cartels want her head; the star conquering, so called ‘Republic’ of Haven is Up To Something; and Honor Harrington has a single, over age light cruiser with an armament that doesn’t work to police the entire star system. But the people out to get her have made one mistake. They’ve made her mad.

The Honor of the Queen

It’s hard to give peace a chance when the other side regards conquest as the only option and a sneak attack as the best means to that end. That’s why the Kingdom of Manticore needs allies against the Republic of Haven and the planet Grayson is strategically situated to make a very good ally indeed. But Her Majesty’s Foreign Office overlooked a minor cultural difference when they chose Honor Harrington to carry the flag: women on the planet of Grayson are without rank or rights and Honor s mere presence is an intolerable affront to every male on the planet. At first Honor doesn t take it personally; where she comes from gender discrimination is barely a historical memory, right up there in significance with fear of the left handed. But in time such treatment becomes taxing and she makes plans to withdraw until Grayson s fratricidal sister planet attacks without warning. Now, Honor must stay and prevail, not just for her honor, but for her sovereign s, for The Honor of the Queen. ‘Following in the best tradition of C.S. Forester, Patrick O’Brian and Robert A Heinlein! These hugely entertaining and clever adventures are the very epitome of space opera.’ Publishers Weekly

The Short Victorious War

The families who rule the People’s Republic of Haven are in trouble. The treasury s empty, the Proles are restless, and civil war is imminent.
But the ruling class knows what they need to keep in power: another short, victorious war to unite the people and fill the treasury once more. It s a card they ve played often in the last half century, always successfully, and all that stands in their way is the Star Kingdom of Manticore and its threadbare allies. Enemies who in the past have always backed down.
Only this time the Peeps face something different. This time they re up against Captain Honor Harrington and a Royal Manticoran Navy that s prepared to give them a war that s far from short…
and anything but victorious

Field of Dishonor

The People’s Republic of Haven’s sneak attack on the Kingdom of Manticore has failed. The Peeps are in disarray, their leaders fighting for power in bloody revolution, and the Royal Manticoran Navy stands victorious.

But Manticore has domestic problems of its own, and success can be more treacherous than defeat for Honor Harrington. Now, trapped at the core of a political crisis she never sought, betrayed by an old and vicious enemy she’d thought vanquished forever, she stands alone.

She must fight for justice on a battlefield she never trained for in a private war that offers just two choices: death…
or a ‘victory’ that can end only in dishonor and the loss of all she loves.

Flag in Exile

Hounded into retirement and disgrace by political enemies, cut to the heart by the murder of the man she loved, and bereft of confidence in herself and her abilities, Captain Honor Harrington has retreated to the planet Grayson to take up her role as Steadholder while she tries to heal her bitter wounds. But the People’s Republic of Haven is rising from defeat to threaten Grayson anew, and the newborn Grayson Navy needs her experience desperately. It’s a call Honor cannot refuse, yet even as she once more accepts the duty whose challenges she fears she can no longer meet, powerful men who hate and fear the changes she’s brought to their world are determined to reverse them. They have a plan…
and for it to succeed Honor Harrington must die. Two irresistible forces are rushing together to crush Grayson between them, and only one woman uncertain of her capabilities, weary unto death, and marked for murder-stands between her adopted planet and its devastation.

Honor Among Enemies

For Captain Honor Harrington, it’s sometimes hard to know who the enemy really is. Despite political foes, professional jealousies, and the scandal that drove her into exile, she’s been offered a chance to reclaim her career as an officer of the Royal Manticoran Navy. But there’s a catch. She must assume command of a ‘squadron’ of jury-rigged armed merchantmen with crew drawn from the dregs of her service and somehow stop the pirates who have taken advantage of the Havenite War to plunder the Star Kingdom’s commerce. That would be hard enough, but some of the ‘pirates’ aren’t exactly what they seem…
and neither are some of her ‘friends.’ For Honor has been carefully chosen for her mission – by two implacable and powerful enemies. The way they see it, either she stops the raiders or the raiders kill her…
and either way, they win.

In Enemy Hands

When she and her crew are ambushed and taken captive aboard an enemy ship, Honor Harrington finds herself bound for the planet prison named ”Hell” and scheduled for execution, forcing Honor to plot the most adventurous escape of her career.’

Echoes of Honor

For eight bloody years, Commodore Honor Harrington has been in the forefront of the battle between the Star Kingdom of Manticore and the vastly more powerful People’s Republic of Haven. Now Honor has fallen, captured by the Peep Navy, turned over to the forces of State Security, and executed, her death shown on the interstellar network’s nightly news. The Manticoran Alliance is determined to avenge her. Yet their military is over extended and the People’s Republic is poised to take the offensive once more. And neither protagonist is aware of events on a distant, isolated, inescapable prison planet called Hell. Honor Harrington is far from dead. She’s going home, and taking her people with her…
even if she has to conquer Hell itself to do it.

Ashes of Victory

Honor Harrington has escaped from the prison planet called Hell and has returned to the Manticoran Alliance with almost half a million freed prisoners. ‘The Salamander’ once more finds herself at the heart of war, but this time the furnace may be too hot for even a salamander to survive. ‘Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant!’ Anne McCaffrey.

War of Honor

NO ONE WANTED ANOTHER WAR Thomas Theisman didn’t. After risking his life and a fresh round of civil war to overthrow the Committee of Public Safety’s reign of terror and restore the Republic of Haven’s ancient Constitution, an interstellar war was the last thing he wanted. Baron High Ridge didn’t. The Prime Minister of Manticore was perfectly happy with the war he had. No one was shooting anyone else at the moment, and as long as he could spin out negotiations on the formal treaty of peace, his government could continue to milk all those ‘hostilities only’ tax measures for their own partisan projects. His Imperial Majesty Gustav didn’t. Now that the fighting between the Star Kingdom and the Havenites had ended, the Andermani Emperor had his own plans for Silesia, and he was confident he could achieve them without a war of his own. Protector Benjamin didn’t. His people had made too deep a commitment to the Manticoran Alliance, in blood as well as treasure, for him to want to risk seeing it all thrown away. And Honor Harrington certainly didn’t. The ‘Salamander’ had seen the inside of too many furnaces already, knew too much about how much war cost. Unfortunately, what they wanted didn’t matter…
.

At All Costs

What price victory? The war with the Republic of Haven has resumed…
disastrously for the Star Kingdom of Manticore. Admiral Lady Dame Honor Harrington, Steadholder and Duchess Harrington, the single victorious Allied commander of the opening phase of the new war, has been recalled from the Sidemore System to command Eighth Fleet. Everyone knows Eighth Fleet is the Alliance’s primary offensive command, which makes it the natural assignment for the woman the media calls ?the Salamander.? But what most of the public DOESN’T know is that not only are the Star Kingdom and its Allies badly outnumbered by the Republic’s new fleet, but that the odds are going to get steadily worse. Eighth Fleet’s job is to somehow prevent those odds from crushing the Alliance before the Star Kingdom can regain its strategic balance. It’s a job which won’t be done cheaply. Honor Harrington must meet her formidable responsibilities with inferior forces even as she copes with tumultuous changes in her personal and public life. The alternative to victory is total defeat, yet this time the COST of victory will be agonizingly high.

Mission of Honor

The hottest military science fiction series of all time continues with book 12 in the legendary Honor Harrington saga. This time, it’s all or nothing for Honor. She imagined she might rest on her laurels. Settle down. Spend years with her loved ones. But the galaxy had other plans. As the nearly unstoppable juggernaut of the mighty Solarian League allies with the Star Kingdom s bitter enemies and closes in, millions die and billions are on the chopping block. Defeat and slavery to a nasty enemy looms. But Honor Harington has tasted defeat before and come back to win ultimate victory. The task is dauting: she must save her family, preserve the life she has built and once again rescue the constitutional order of her beloved Star Kingdom. The solution? To brave utter annihilation in a desperate move to defeat her gathered enemies and win freedom for freedom for her people and the kingdom she has given her life and blood for time and again.

WELCOME AGAIN TO THE MANY WORLDS OF HONORLady Dame Honor Harrington starship captain, admiral, Steadholder, and Duchess has spent decades defending the Star Kingdom of Manticore against all comers.

Meanwhile, Eric Flint weighs in with ‘From the Highlands.’ Honor can’t be everywhere, so when the People’s Republic of Haven tries to stage a political assassination on Earth, Anton Zilwicki husband of one of the Star Kingdom’s most revered military martyrs, and father of a young woman who is clearly a chip off the old block steps into the breach…
and takes the opportunity to settle some old scores along the way. And finally, Esther McQueen and Oscar Saint Just square off for their final confrontation in Noveau Paris in ‘Nightfall.’

The Service of the Sword

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 including John Ringo, Eric Flint, Timothy Zahn and Weber himself 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!

In Fire Forged

Honor Harrington is arguably the most popular character in modern science fiction, but there are many other stories in the Honorverse besides those in which she has the central role. This fifth volume in the popular Worlds of Honor series explores some of those stories with the help of such top writers as best selling author Jane LIndskjold, New York Times best selling author Timothy Zahn, and more including an all new Honor Harrington adventure, set in her younger years, when a mob of space pirates made the mistake of tangling with Commander Harrington. That was a fatal mistake for the pirates…

Bolo!

Controlled by their tireless electronic brains which were programmed to admit no possibility of defeat, the gigantic robot tanks known as Bolos were almost indestructible, and nearly unstoppable. Their artificial intelligences were designed to make them selflessly serve and protect humans throughout the galaxy and made each Bolo the epitome of the knight sans peur et sans reproche, and often far more noble than the humans who gave them their orders. Now, David Weber, New York Times best selling author of the Honor Harrington series, continues the history of the Bolo, in four short novels, one of them published here for the first time. One Bolo is driven over the edge by the very humans it is pledged to protect. Another Bolo must decide whether or not to disobey when it is given an order that constitutes genocide. A third must hunt one of its own kind whose robot brain is damaged and rescue two children which the deranged Bolo thinks it is protecting from a nonexistent enemy. And more, including as a bonus, David Weber’s own authoritative technical history of the Bolo, all in a volume that will be irresistible both for David Weber’s huge readership and Bolo fans everywhere.

Old Soldiers

Captain Maneka Trevor was the sole human survivor of the Dinochrome Brigade’s 39th Battalion…
but she hadn’t wanted to be one. The Bolo known as ‘Lazarus’ Unit 28/G 179 LAZ was the 39th’s sole surviving Bolo…
but he hadn’t been hers. The doctors and the Bolo techs have put them both back together again, yet there are wounds no doctor or technician can heal. And now Maneka and Lazarus must serve together once again, in a war whose stakes are literally the survival or extermination of the human race. They are all that stand between a desperate, secret colony of humanity and destruction: a Bolo commander torn by survivor’s guilt and a Bolo whose very existence reminds her of all she has lost. The odds against them are heavy, the stakes are huge, and surrender is not an option. The Dinochrome Brigade is used to that, but can Maneka and Lazarus survive their own shared past to defend the present?

Crown of Slaves

Beginning a new blockbuster series set in the ‘Honorverse’ the universe of Honor Harrington. The Star Kingdom’s ally Erewhon is growing increasingly restive in the alliance because the new High Ridge regime ignores its needs. Add to that the longstanding problem of a slave labor planet controlled by hostile Mesans in Erewhon’s stellar back yard, a problem which High Ridge also ignores. Finally, the recent assassination of the Solarian League’s most prominent voice of public conscience indicates the growing danger of political instability in the Solarian League which is also close to Erewhon. In desperation, Queen Elizabeth tries to defuse the situation by sending a private mission to Erewhon led by Captain Zilwicki, accompanied by one of her nieces. When they arrive on Erewhon, however, Manticore’s most capable agent and one of its princesses find themselves in a mess. Not only do they encounter one of the Republic of Haven’s most capable agents Victor Cachat but they also discover that the Solarian League’s military delegation seems up to its neck in skullduggery. And, just to put the icing on the cake, the radical freed slave organization, the Audubon Ballroom, is also on the scene led by its most notorious killer, Jeremy X.

Torch of Freedom

FIRST TIME IN PAPERBACK! NEW YORK TIMES AND WALL STREET JOURNAL BEST SELLER! As the slavemasters of Mesa plot against the Star Empire of Manticore and the newly liberated slave planet of Torch, Anton Zilwicki and the notorious Havenite secret agent Victor Cachat set off on a dangerous mission to uncover the truth concerning a wave of mysterious assassinations that have been launched against Manticore and Torch. Most people are sure that the Republic of Haven is behind the assassinations, but Zilwicki and Cachat suspect others of being the guilty party. Queen Berry of Torch was one of the targets of the unknown assassins. The former head of the Ballroom slave liberation organization, Jeremy X now one of Torch’s top officials, but still considered by many the most dangerous terrorist in the galaxy calls in some past favors owed to him. In response, a security officer from Beowulf arrives in Torch to take charge of Queen Berry’s security a task made doubly difficult by the young monarch’s resentment of bodyguards and the security officer’s own growing attachment to her. Meanwhile, powerful forces in the Solarian League are maneuvering against each other to gain the upper hand in what they all expect to be an explosive crisis that threatens the very existence of the League itself.

The Armageddon Inheritance

Colin MacIntyre, a NASA astronaut kidnapped by a starship impersonating Earth’s moon, has just suppressed a five thousand year old mutiny, but now he faces an even bigger challenge. By the author of Mutineers’ Moon. Reissue.

Heirs of Empire

For really tough jobs, Emperor Colin, the first of that name, is your man. The only person in the galaxy ever to stop the genocidal Achuutani, he went on from there to resurrect an empire that died fourty five thousand years ago. He’s still got a few problems like a traitor out to murder him and three quarters of a billion of his subjects but if anyone can handle the job, it’s Colin. But the rest of the galaxy better brace itself, because his progeny are on the way. Not that Sean and Harriet aren’t nice kids; it’s just that they’ve had a bad day. They’re a long way from home, marooned with a blown up starship that’s left them stranded on a theocratic world of gun powder and pikes, and Mother Church of that world doesn’t like them very much. In fact, she’s declared them demons, proclaimed Holy War, marshalled the Holy Host, and ordered them exterminated. You might think that things look pretty bleak for the kids, but in reality it’s Mother Church that’s in trouble because Sean and Harry are chips off the old block and they’re about to get angry…

March Upcountry

The Royal Brat is in Trouble Roger Ramius Sergei Chiang MacClintock didn’t understand. He was young, handsome, athletic, an excellent dresser, and third in line for the Throne of Man…
so why wouldn’t anyone at Court trust him? Why wouldn’t even his own mother, the Empress, explain why they didn’t trust him? Or why the very mention of his father’s name was forbidden at Court? Or why his mother had decided to pack him off to a backwater planet aboard what was little more than a tramp freighter to represent her at a local political event better suited to a third assistant undersecretarv of state? It probably wasn’t too surprising that someone in his position should react by becoming spoiled, selfcentered and petulant. After all, what else did he have to do with his life? But that was before a saboteur tried to blow up his transport. Then warships of the Empire of Man’s worst rivals shot the crippled vessel out of space. Then Roger found himself shipwrecked on the planet Marduk, whose jungles were full of damnbeasts, killerpillars, carnivorous plants, torrential rain, and barbarian hordes with really bad dispositions. Now all Roger has to do is hike halfway around the entire planet, then capture a spaceport from the Bad Guys, somehow commandeer a starship, and then go home to Mother for explanations. Fortunately, Roger has an ace in the hole: Bravo Company of Bronze Battalion of The Empress’ Own Regiment. If anyone can get him off Marduk alive, it’s the Bronze Barbarians. Assuming that Prince Roger manages to grow up before he gets all of them killed.

March to the Sea

A Bad Neighborhood’Always Faithful.’ That was the IMC motto, and the Marines of Bravo Company, Bronze Battalion, of the Empress’ Own Regiment, lived by it…
even if they did occasionally wonder why they bothered. After all, Prince Roger MacClintock, Tertiary Heir to the Throne of Man, was a real piece of work. A spoiled rotten, arrogant, whiny, terminally handsome, thoroughly useless young pain in the butt. But that was before the Royal Brat and his body guards were marooned on Marduk by an assassination attempt. Before they found themselves facing 120& 176; heat in jungles where it rained five or six hours a day…
during the dry season. Before they had to march half way around the entire planet, through damnbeasts, Capetoads, killerpillars, and atul grak. Before they encountered treacherous local potentates, barbarian migrations, and an ocean full of sea serpents that could swallow a topsail schooner whole. Under the right circumstances, even the most spoiled brat can grow up fast, and it turns out that under his petulant, spoiled exterior, Prince Roger is a true MacClintock, a scion of the warrior dynasty which created the Empire of Man a thousand years before. The Marines assigned to guard him have discovered a new belief in him and in their motto and they’re determined that they will get him off of Marduk aIive. Of course, the planet has other ideas…

March to the Stars

Prince Roger MacClintock, Heir to the Throne of Man, was a spoiled rotten arrogant, thoroughly useless young pain in the butt. But that was before the royal Brat and his Marine bodyguards had their starship sabotaged, and all were marooned on the enemy occupied planet of Marduk. Before they had to march half way around the entire planet, through steaming jungles, damnbeasts, Capetoads, and killerpillars. Before they encountered treacherous local potentates, hostile barbarian armies numbering in the thousands, and an ocean full of creatures that are big, vicious and voracious. Under the right circumstances, even the most spoiled brat can grow up fast. Now, Roger and his loyal troops have made it to the sea, and on the way, Roger has proven himself to be a true MacClintock and a born leader. Still, the sea has monsters big enough to swallow a ship and across the water is an enemy spaceport, bristing with heavy artillery, against which Roger’s team has only had weapons with nearly drained power packs. But neither Roger nor the Marines are about to give up, Marduk, do your worst!

We Few

Prince Roger MacClintock was an heir to the galaxy’s Throne of Man and a self obsessed spoiled young brat…
until he and the Royal Marines sent to protect him were stranded on Marduk with only their feet to get them half way around the entire planet. So far, they’ve crossed a continent, crossed a sea full of ship eating monsters, taken over an enemy spaceport, and hijacked a starship. But they’re not home free yet, because home is no longer free. In Roger’s absence, a palace coup by enemies of the MacClintock family has seized control of the Empire. His mother the Empress is a captive in the palace and even in her own body, drugged so that her will is not her own. Roger’s brother, the heir to the throne, is dead. And Roger himself has been branded an outlaw and traitor. Roger and his faithful band of human marines and native alien warriors have beaten the barbarian planet Marduk, and now they must re conquer an interstellar empire. But they aren’t about to give up, and with the help of those on the throne planet who are still loyal to the Empress they will infiltrate under cover of a restaurant specializing in exotic Mardukan dishes, no less, they will make anyone who gets in their way such as local mobsters who make the mistake of kidnapping Roger’s fianc very sorry that they did, and they will not rest until the rightful ruler has been restored. Once again, a lot of power hungry people are going to learn a hard lesson: You do not, ever, mess with a MacClintock!

Path of the Fury

While the Imperial forces are busy searching for planet wrecking pirates, Alicia turns pirate herself and steals a cutting edge AI ship from the empire in order to begin her vendetta.

In Fury Born

Imperial Intelligence couldn’t find them, the Imperial Fleet couldn’t catch them, and local defenses couldn’t stop them. It seemed the planet wrecking pirates were invincible. But they made a big mistake when they raided ex commando leader Alicia DeVries’ quiet home work, tortured and murdered her family, and then left her for dead. Alicia decided to turn ‘pirate’ herself, and stole a cutting edge AI ship from the Empire to start her vendetta. Her fellow veterans think she’s gone crazy, the Imperial Fleet has shoot on sight orders. And of course the pirates want her dead, too. But Alicia DeVries has two allies nobody knows about, allies as implacable as she is: a self aware computer, and a creature from the mists of Old Earth’s most ancient legends. And this trio of furies won’t rest until vengeance is served. In Fury Born is a greatly expanded new version of David Weber’s popular novel Path of the Fury, which has gone through six large printings in its original mass market edition. David Weber has added considerable new material, revealing the earlier life of Alicia DeVries before she embarked on her mission of vengeance, and illuminating the universe of the original story. The result is a novel with almost twice the wordage of the original, and a must buy for all David Weber fans.

Hell’s Gate (With: Linda Evans)

The Union of Arcana has expanded through the portals linking parallel universes for over a century and a half. In that time, its soldiers and sorcerers have laid claim to one uninhabited planet after another all of them Earth, and in the process, the Union has become the most powerful, most wealthy civilization in all of human history. But all of that is about to come to a screeching halt, for the Union’s scouts have just discovered a new portal, and on its far side lies a shattering revelation. Arcana is not alone, after all. There is another human society, Sharona, which has also been exploring the Multiverse, and the first contact between them did not go well. Arcana is horrified by the alien weapons of its sudden opponents, weapons its sorcerers cannot explain or duplicate. Weapons based upon something called…
science. But Sharona is equally horrified by Arcana s magical weapons. Neither side expected the confrontation. Both sides think the other fired first, and no one on either side understands the technology of the other. But as the initial disastrous contact snowballs into all out warfare, both sides can agree on one thing. The portal which brought them together is Hell s Gate itself!

Hell Hath No Fury (With: Linda Evans)

It began with two men. They came from very different worlds entirely different universes, in fact and they met in a virgin forest on a duplicate planet Earth. Neither of them had expected it, both of them realized how important the first contact with any other trans universal human civilization might be. But something went wrong. Neither side knows who shot first. But both the magic using civilization of Arcana and steel and steam age Sharona, with its psionic Talents, think it was the other side. And it doesn’t really matter, now, because the original incident has snowballed. Both sides have additional dead to mourn; both sides have additional wrongs to avenge. Both sides have additional military forces moving towards the front. War between the universes is the last thing responsible leaders on either side want. But the fury of their respective populations, xenophobic fear of the unknown, and cries for ‘justice’ or vengeance, are all driving both sides towards the brink. The actions of local military commanders and diplomats may well determine the final outcome, and unscrupulous, power hungry men and Arcana and Sharona alike have agendas of their own. The fuse has been lit, and a war stretching across the universes, across an endless succession of identical Earths, fought between dragons, spells, and crossbows and repeating rifles, machine guns, and artillery is about to begin in white hot rage and fury. Where it will end and how no one knows.

Out of the Dark

The Galactic Hegemony has been around a long time, and it likes stability the kind of stability that member species like the aggressive, carnivorous Shongairi tend to disturb. So when the Hegemony Survey Force encountered a world whose so called ‘sentients’ ‘humans,’ they called themselves were almost as bad as the Shongairi themselves, it seemed reasonable to use the Shongairi to neutralize them before they could become a second threat to galactic peace. And if the Shongairi took a few knocks in the process, all the better. Now, Earth is conquered. The Shongairi have arrived in force, and humanity’s cities lie in radioactive ruins. In mere minutes, more than half the human race has died. Master Sergeant Stephen Buchevsky, who thought he was being rotated home from his latest tour in Afghanistan, finds himself instead prowling the back country of the Balkans, dodging alien patrols and trying to organize scattered survivors without getting killed. And in the southeastern US, firearms instructor and former Marine Dave Dvorak finds himself at the center of a growing network of resistance putting his extended family at lethal risk, but what else can you do?On the face of it, Buchevsky s and Dvorak s chances look bleak, as do prospects for the rest of the surviving human race. But it may well be that Shongairi and the Hegemony alike have underestimated the inhabitants of that strange planet called Earth

The Excalibur Alternative

Lying helpless during a raging storm in the North Sea, a fleet of medieval ships finds sudden rescue in the arrival of a powerful group of aliens, who offer salvation in exchange for eternal bondage fighting as star soldiers.

Off Armageddon Reef

Humanity pushed its way to the stars and encountered the Gbaba, a ruthless alien race that nearly wiped us out. Earth and her colonies are now smoldering ruins, and the few survivors have fled to distant, Earth like Safehold, to try to rebuild. But the Gbaba can detect the emissions of an industrial civilization, so the human rulers of Safehold have taken extraordinary measures: with mind control and hidden high technology, they’ve built a religion in which every Safeholdian believes, a religion designed to keep Safehold society medieval forever. 800 years pass. In a hidden chamber on Safehold, an android from the far human past awakens. This ‘rebirth’ was set in motion centuries before, by a faction that opposed shackling humanity with a concocted religion. Via automated recordings, ‘Nimue’ or, rather, the android with the memories of Lieutenant Commander Nimue Alban is told her fate: she will emerge into Safeholdian society, suitably disguised, and begin the process of provoking the technological progress which the Church of God Awaiting has worked for centuries to prevent. Nothing about this will be easy. To better deal with a medieval society, ‘Nimue’ takes a new gender and a new name, ‘Merlin.’ His formidable powers and access to caches of hidden high technology will need to be carefully concealed. And he’ll need to find a base of operations, a Safeholdian country that’s just a little more freewheeling, a little less orthodox, a little more open to the new. And thus Merlin comes to Charis, a mid sized kingdom with a talent for naval warfare. He plans to make the acquaintance of King Haarahld and Crown Prince Cayleb, and maybe, just maybe, kick off a new era of invention. Which is bound to draw the attention of the Church and, inevitably, lead to war. It’s going to be a long, long process. And it’s going to be the can’t miss SF epic of the decade.

By Schism Rent Asunder

The world has changed. The mercantile kingdom of Charis has prevailed over the alliance designed to exterminate it. Armed with a multitude of small technological improvements better sailing vessels, better guns, better devices of all sorts Charis faced the combined navies of the rest of the world at Darcos Sound and Armageddon Reef, and broke them. Despite the implacable hostility of the Church of God Awaiting, Charis still stands, still free, still tolerant, still an island of innovation in a world in which the Church has worked for centuries to keep humanity locked at a medieval level of existence. But the powerful men who run the Church aren t going to take their defeat lying down. Charis may control the world’s seas, but it barely has an army worthy of the name. And as King Cayleb knows, far too much of the kingdom s recent good fortune is due to the secret manipulations of the being that calls himself Merlin a being that, the world must not find out too soon, is more than human. A being whose very existence is the result of a centuries ago final desperate roll of the dice. A being on whose shoulders rests the last chance for humanity s freedom. Now, as Charis and its archbishop make the rift with Mother Church explicit, the storm gathers. Schism has come to the world of Safehold. Nothing will ever be the same.

By Heresies Distressed

Now the battle for the soul of the planet Safehold has begun.

The Kingdom of Charis and the Kingdom of Chisholm have joined together, pledged to stand against the tyranny of a corrupt Church. The youthful Queen Sharleyan of Chisholm has wed King Cayleb of Charis, forging a single dynasty, a single empire, dedicated to the defense of human freedom. Crowned Empress of that empire, Sharleyan has found in Cayleb’s arms the love she never dared hope for in a marriage of state. In Cayleb s cause, his defiance of the ruthless Group of Four who govern mother Church, she has found the task to which she can commit her mind and her courage. It is a cause for which she was born.

Yet there are things Sharleyan still does not know. Secrets Cayleb has not been permitted to share, even with her. Secrets like the true story of humanity on Safehold. Like the intricate web of lies, deception, and fabricated religion which have chained humanity for almost a thousand years. Like the existence of the genocidal alien Gbaba, waiting to complete mankind s destruction should humans ever attract their attention once more. Like the existence of a young woman, Nimue Alban, nine hundred years dead, whose heart, mind, and memories live on within the android body of the warrior monk she knows as Merlin.

And so Empress Sharleyan faces the the great challenge of her life unaware of all that task truly entails…
or of how the secrets the man who loves her cannot share may threaten all they have achieved between them…
and her own life.

A Mighty Fortress

Young Cayleb Ahrmahk has accomplished things few people could even dream of. Not yet even thirty years old, he’s won the most crushing naval victories in human history. He s smashed a hostile alliance of no less than five princedoms and won the hand of the beautiful young Queen Sharleyan of Chisholm. Cayleb and Sharleyan have created the Charisian Empire, the greatest naval power in the history of Safehold, and they ve turned Charis into a place of refuge for all who treasure freedom. Their success may prove short lived. The Church of God Awaiting, which controls most of Safehold, has decreed their destruction. Mother Church s entire purpose is to prevent the very things to which Charis is committed. Since the first attempt to crush the heretics failed, the Church has no choice but to adopt some of the hated Charisian innovations for themselves. Soon a mighty fleet will sail against Cayleb, destroying everything in its path. But there are still matters about which the Church knows nothing, including Cayleb and Sharleyan s adviser, friend, and guardian the mystic warrior monk named Merlin Athrawes. Merlin knows all about battles against impossible odds, because he is in fact the cybernetic avatar of a young woman named Nimue Alban, who died a thousand years before. As Nimue, Merlin saw the entire Terran Federation go down in fire and slaughter at the hands of a foe it could not defeat. He knows that Safehold is the last human planet in existence, and that the stasis the Church was created to enforce will be the human race s death sentence if it is allowed to stand. The juggernaut is rumbling down on Charis, but Merlin Athrawes and a handful of extraordinary human beings stand in its path. The Church is about to discover just how potent the power of human freedom truly is.

How Firm a Foundation

The Charisian Empire, born in war, has always known it must fight for its very survival. What most of its subjects don t know even now, however, is how much more it’s fighting for. Emperor Cayleb, Empress Sharleyan, Merlin Athrawes, and their innermost circle of most trusted advisers do know. And because they do, they know the penalty if they lose will be far worse than their own deaths and the destruction of all they know and love. For five years, Charis has survived all the Church of God Awaiting and the corrupt men who control it have thrown at the island empire. The price has been high and paid in blood. Despite its chain of hard fought naval victories, Charis is still on the defensive. It can hold its own at sea, but if it is to survive, it must defeat the Church upon its own ground. Yet how does it invade the mainland and take the war to a foe whose population outnumbers its own fifteen to one? How does it prevent that massive opponent from rebuilding its fleets and attacking yet again?Charis has no answer to those questions, but needs to find one quickly. The Inquisition s brutal torture and hideous executions are claiming more and more innocent lives. Its agents are fomenting rebellion against the only mainland realms sympathetic to Charis. Religious terrorists have been dispatched to wreak havoc against the Empire s subjects. Assassins stalk the Emperor and Empress, their allies and advisers, and an innocent young boy, not yet eleven years old, whose father has already been murdered. And Merlin Athrawes, the cybernetic avatar of a young woman a thousand years dead, has finally learned what sleeps beneath the far off Temple in the Church of God Awaiting s city of Zion. The men and women fighting for human freedom and tolerance have built a foundation for their struggle in the Empire of Charis with their own blood, but will that foundation be firm enough to survive?

The Shadow of Saganami

The Star Kingdom of Manticore is once again at war with the Republic of Haven after a stunning sneak attack. The graduating class from Saganami Island, the Royal Manticoran Navy’s academy, are going straight from the classroom to the blazing reality of all out war except for the midshipmen assigned to the heavy cruiser HMS Hexapuma, that is. They re being assigned to the Talbott Cluster, a backwater far from the battle front. With a captain who may have seen too much of war and a station commander who isn t precisely noted for his brilliant and insightful command style, it isn t exactly what the students of Honor Harrington expected. But things aren t as simple or tranquil as they appear. Pirates, terrorists, genetic slavers, smuggled weapons, long standing personal hatreds, and a vicious alliance of corporate greed, bureaucratic arrogance, and a corrupt local star nation with a powerful fleet, are all coming together, and only Hexapuma, her war weary captain, and Honor Harrington s students stand in the path. They have only one thing to support and guide them: the tradition of Saganami. The tradition that sometimes a Queen s officer s duty is to face impossible odds…
and die fighting.

Storm from the Shadows

Rear Admiral Michelle Henke was commanding one of the ships in a force led by Honor Harrington in an all out space battle. The odds were against the Star Kingdom forces, and they had to run. But Michelle’s ship was crippled, and had to be destroyed to prevent superior Manticoran technology from falling into Havenite hands, and she and her surviving crew were taken prisoner. Much to her surprise, she was repatriated to Manticore, carrying a request for a summit conference between the leaders of the two sides which might end the war. But a condition of her return was that she gave her parole not to fight against the forces of the Republic of Haven until she had been officially exchanged for a Havenite prisoner of war, so she was given a command far away from the war s battle lines. What she didn t realize was that she would find herself on a collision course, not with a hostile government, but with the interstellar syndicate of criminals known as Manpower. And Manpower had its own plans for eliminating Manticore as a possible threat to its lucrative slave trade, deadly plans which remain hidden in the shadows.

In the period of peace following the Human Orion War, a ship from a half forgotten history emerges from a warp point notorious for devouring ships and opens fire on the Orions.

In Death Ground (With: SteveWhite)

Five thousand years after Sun Tzu writes The Art of War, his advice is followed during the Fourth Interstellar War between the terrible Bugs and the humans, who are aided by their catlike Orion allies.

The Shiva Option (With: SteveWhite)

The ‘bugs’ have overrun planet after planet and they regard all sentient species as convenient protein sources. The Grand Alliance of Humans has been driven to the wall. When the only possible outcomes are victory or racial extermination, only one option is acceptable The Shiva Option.

Exodus (By:Shirley Meier,SteveWhite)

Once before, the sentient races in the known part of the galaxy humans, Orions, Ophiuchi and Gorm had united to defeat alien invaders. The bugs were as incomprehensibly alien as they were revoltingly evil, using all other living things, intelligent or not, as food, and they had been defeated at a terrible cost. Decades have since passed and the gallant warriors of the battle against the bugs have grown old, while new generations have grown complacent…
dangerously so. Long ago, much of the population of an entire planet had built a huge fleet of ships, each ship larger than a city, and fled their world before its sun went nova. Those slower than light ships traversed many light years, and have now arrived at the world they intend to make their new home. They regard the fact that the planet is already colonized by humans as a mere inconvenience, the more so since their mode of communication is so different from anything humans use that they do not consider humans and their allies to be truly intelligent. And the arriving aliens know or, at least, they believe that when they die they will be reincarnated, so they do not hesitate to attack humans and their allies with suicidal fury. This time, the intelligent races of the old alliance will not have to worry about becoming an invader’s meal but that will be small comfort if the invaders decide that genocide is justified for their own survival…

An implacable foe with telepathic cohesion in battle, near immortality, and eons advanced engineering skills threatens to wipe humanity from the galaxy. What’s more, they ve overcome their one weakness no faster than light travel and have followed humanity through our star gates and beyond. But humans are the master of adaption, and have got a counterpunch of devastating proportions in reserve.

A Beautiful Friendship

SIGNED LIMITED EDITIONStephanie Harrington absolutely hates being confined inside her family’s compound on the pioneer planet of Sphinx, a frontier wilderness world populated by dangerous native animals that could easily tear a human to bits and pieces.

Oath of Swords

Whom the gods would recruit, they first tick off…
Our Hero: The unlikely Paladin, Bahzell Bahnakson of the Horse Stealer Hradani. He’s no knight in shining armor. He s a hradani, a race known for their uncontrollable rages, bloodthirsty tendencies, and inability to maintain civilized conduct. None of the other Five Races of man like the hradani. Besides his ethnic burden, Bahzell has problems of his own to deal with: a violated hostage bond, a vengeful prince, a price on his head. He doesn t want to mess with anybody else s problems, let alone a god s. Let alone the War God s! So how does he end up a thousand leagues from home, neck deep in political intrigue, assassins, demons, psionicists, evil sorcery, white sorcery, dark gods, good gods, bad poets, greedy landlords, and most of Bortalik Bay? Well, it s all the War God s fault…
.

The War God’s Own

Bahzell Bahnakson of the Horse Stealer hradani had never wanted to be the champion of the War God. Unfortunately, the War God had insisted. Which was how he had found himself among hostile strangers in the Empire of the Axe except that that was only the least of his problems. For a start, there was the Order of Tomanak, who were horrified that their deity had chosen a hradani as champion, and were resolved to rectify the matter in a most unpleasant fashion. And if he survived that, he had to get home somehow, in spite of the enemies determined to stop him, to face the Dark God who had sworn to destroy all hradani. But one thing Bahzell had learned: a champion of the War God Tomanak does what needs to be done. And those who got in his way had better watch out…

Wind Rider’s Oath

In The War God’s Own, Bahzell had managed to stop a war by convincing Baron Tllian, leader of the Sothoii, to ‘surrender’ to him, the War God’s champion. Now, he has journeyed to the Sothoii Wind Plain to oversee the parole he granted to Tellian and his men, to represent the Order of tomanak, the War God, and to be an ambassador for the hradani. What’s more, the flying coursers of the Sothoii have accepted Bahzell as a windrider the first hradani windrider in history. And since the windriders are the elite of the elite among the Sothoii, Bahzell’s ascension is as likely to stir resentment as respect. That combination of duties would have been enough to keep anyone busy even a warrior prince like Bahzell but additional complications are bubbling under the surface. The goddess Shigu, the Queen of Hell, is sowing dissension among the war maids of the Sothoii. The supporters of the deposed Sothoii noble who started the war are plotting to murder their new liege lord and frame Bahzell for the deed. Of course, those problems are all in a day’s work for a champion of the War God. But what is Bahzell going to do about Baron Tellian’s daughter, the heir to the realm, who seems to be thinking that Bahzell is the only man or hradani for her?

The Apocalypse Troll

There he was in his sailboat in the middle of the Atlantic, all alone and loving it. Well, there was a US Navy carrier group on his southern horizon, but he was US Navy himself, so he didn’t mind. Then came the UFOs, hurtling in from the Outer Black to overfly the carriers at Mach 17. Their impossible aeronautics were bad enough but then they started shooting at each other. And at the Navy. With nukes. Little ones at first, but winding up with a 500 megatonner at 90 miles that fried every piece of electronics within sight. Richard Ashton thought he was just a ringside observer to these now over the horizon events. Until the crippled alien lifeboat came drifting down and homed in on his sailboat; suddenly he had his hands full of an unconscious, critially wounded alien warrior who just happened to be a gorgeous female, too. And that was when it began to get really interesting…

Janissaries (By:Jerry Pournelle)

Some days it just didn’t pay to be a soldier. Captain Rick Galloway and his men had been talked into volunteering for a dangerous mission only to be ruthlessly abandoned when faceless CIA higher ups pulled the plug on the operation. They were cut off in hostile territory, with local troops and their Cuban ‘advisors’ rapidly closing in. And then the alien spaceship landed…

1632 (By:Eric Flint)

FREEDOM AND JUSTICE AMERICAN STYLE 1632 And in northern Germany things couldn’t get much worse. Famine. Disease. Religous war laying waste the cities. Only the aristocrats remained relatively unscathed; for the peasants, death was a mercy. 2000 Things are going OK in Grantville, West Virginia, and everybody attending the wedding of Mike Stearn’s sister including the entire local chapter of the United Mine Workers of America, which Mike leads is having a good time. THEN, EVERYTHING CHANGED…
. When the dust settles, Mike leads a group of armed miners to find out what happened and finds the road into town is cut, as with a sword. On the other side, a scene out of Hell: a man nailed to a farmhouse door, his wife and daughter attacked by men in steel vests. Faced with this, Mike and his friends don’t have to ask who to shoot. At that moment Freedom and Justice, American style, are introduced to the middle of the Thirty Years’ War.

1633 (With: Eric Flint)

American Freedom and Justice vs. The Tyrannies of the Seventeenth Century The new government in central Europe, called the Confederated Principalities of Europe, was formed by an alliance between Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, and the West Virginians led by Mike Stearns who were transplanted into 17th century Germany by a mysterious cosmic accident. The new regime is shaky. Outside its borders, the Thirty Years War continues to rage. Within, it is beset by financial crisis as well as the political and social tensions between the democratic ideals of the 20th century Americans and the aristocracy which continues to rule the roost in the CPE as everywhere in Europe. Worst of all, the CPE has aroused the implacable hostility of Cardinal Richelieu, the effective ruler of France. Richelieu has created the League of Ostend in order to strike at the weakest link in the CPE’s armorits dependence on the Baltic as the lifeline between Gustav Adolf’s Sweden and the rest of his realm. The greatest naval war in European history is about to erupt. Like it or not, Gustavus Adolphus will have to rely on Mike Stearns and the technical wizardry of his obstreperous Americans to save the King of Sweden from ruin. Caught in the conflagration are two American diplomatic missions abroad: Rebecca Stearns’ mission to France and Holland, and the embassy which Mike Stearns sent to King Charles of England headed by his sister Rita and Melissa Mailey. Rebecca finds herself trapped in war torn Amsterdam; Rita and Melissa, imprisoned in the Tower of London. And much as Mike wants to transport 20th century values into war torn 17th century Europe by Sweet Reason, still he finds comfort in the fact that Julie, who once trained to be an Olympic marksman, still has her rifle…

1634: The Galileo Affair (By:Eric Flint)

The Thirty Years War continues to ravage 17th century Europe, but a new force is gathering power and influence: the Confederated Principalities of Europe, an alliance between Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, and the West Virginians from the 20th century led by Mike Stearns who were hurled centuries into the past by a mysterious cosmic accident. The democratic ideals of the CPE have aroused the implacable hostility of Cardinal Richelieu, effective ruler of France, who has moved behind the scenes, making common cause with old enemies to stop this new threat to the privileged and powerful. But the CPE is also working in secret. A group of West Virginians have secretly traveled to Venice where their advanced medical knowledge may prevent the recurrence of the terrible plague which recently killed a third of the city state’s population. At the same time, the group hopes to establish commercial ties with Turkey’s Ottoman Empire, then at the height of its power. And, most important, they hope to establish private diplomatic ties with the Vatican, exploiting Pope Urban VIII’s misgivings about the actions of Richelieu and the Hapsburgs. But a Venetian artisan involved with the West Virginians may cause all their plans to come to naught. Having read 20th century history books of the period, he has become determined to rescue Galileo from his trial for heresy. The Americans are divided on whether to help him or stop him and whether he succeeds or fails, the results may be catastrophic for the CPE.

1634: The Ram Rebellion (By:Eric Flint)

The Thirty Years War continues to ravage 17th century Europe, but a new force is gathering power and influence: the Confederated Principalities of Europe, an alliance between Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, and the West Virginians from the 20th century led by Mike Stearns who were hurled centuries into the past by a mysterious cosmic accident. Inspired by the example of American freedom and justice, a movement in Franconia among the peasants, who have revolted several times even before the arrival from the future of the town of Grantville, an independent revolutionary movement has arisen, flying the banner of the head of a ram. The West Virginians fully approve of liberating the peasants from the nobility, but they are also aware of how revolutionary movements can lead to bloodbaths. And avoiding that deadly possibility will require all of their future knowledge and all their plain old American horse trading diplomacy…

1634: The Baltic War (With: Eric Flint)

The Baltic War which began in the novel 1633 is still raging, and the time lost Americans of Grantville the West Virginia town hurled back into the seventeenth century by a mysterious cosmic accident are caught in the middle of it.

The CPE has the know how of 20th century technology, but needs iron and steel to make the machines. The iron mines of the upper Palatinate were rendered inoperable by wartime damage, and American know how is needed on the spot to pump them out and get the metal flowing again a mission that will prove more complicated than anyone expects. In the maelstrom that is Europe, even a 20th century copy of the Encyclopedia Britannica can precipitate a crisis, when readers learn of the 1640 Portuguese revolt, a crisis that will involve Naples as well. Another factor: Albanian exiles in Naples, inspired by the Americans, are plotting to recover lost Albanian turf, which will precipitate yet another crisis in the Balkans. This troubled century was full of revolutions and plans for more revolutions before the Americans arrived, and gave every would be revolutionary an example of a revolution that succeeded. Europe is a pot coming to a boil, and Mike Stearns will have his hands full seeing that it doesn’t boil over on to Grantville and the CPE.

And what better place for an undercover spy from France than working with the garbage collectors, examining 20th century machines that others throw out and copying the technology though he wishes one device the paper shredder had been left behind in the future. There are more sinister agents at work, however. One of them, Ducos, almost succeeded in assassinating the Pope, but his plan was ruined by quick action by a few Americans. Now, the would be assassin not only has a score to settle, but has also decided on two excellent targets: Grantville’s leader Mike Stearns and his wife Rebecca…

The Space Opera Renaissance

‘Space opera’, once a derisive term for cheap pulp adventure, has come to mean something more in modern SF: compelling adventure stories told against a broad canvas, and written to the highest level of skill. Indeed, it can be argued that the ‘new space opera’ is one of the defining streams of modern SF. Now, World Fantasy Award winning anthologists David G. Hartwell and Kathryn Cramer have compiled a definitive overview of this subgenre, both as it was in the days of the pulp magazines, and as it has become in 2005. Included are major works from genre progenitors like Jack Williamson and Leigh Brackett, stylish midcentury voices like Cordwainer Smith and Samuel R. Delany, popular favorites like David Drake, Lois McMaster Bujold, and Ursula K. Le Guin, and modern day pioneers such as Iain M. Banks, Steven Baxter, Scott Westerfeld, and Charles Stross.
