Treecats, starships, dragons, alternate history, self-aware Bolo supertanks, wizards, sailing ships, ironclads....

For twenty years, David Weber has been taking readers to destinations strange and fantastical, from his best-selling Honor Harrington novels and short stories to the swords-and-sorcery of Norfressa and the shared universes of his own and other writers. If you haven't already read these stories, you should. Find out how Giles Habibula really joined Jack Williamson's Legion of Space. 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, share Honor Harrington's very first battle, and discover the true cost of self-awareness for war machines who learn to care.

Open the door and peep inside, but be careful! Once you step into the worlds of Weber, you may not want to go home again.

About the Author:

David Weber is the science fiction phenomenon of the decade.  His popular Honor Harrington novels are New York Times best sellers and can't come out fast enough for his devoted readers.  He has also begun a top-selling epic SF Adventure series in collaboration with John Ringo, with four novels so far: March  Upcountry, March to the sea, March to the Stars and We Few.  His Wind Rider's Oath, another New York Times best sellers, continues his popular fantasy adventure series.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. 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.)
