Présentation de l'éditeur

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 . . .

At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

David Weber is the science fiction phenomenon of the decade. His popular Honor Harrington novels repeatedly make the New York Times best seller list and can’t come out fast enough for his devoted readers. He has also written the popular Safehold series for Tor, and a best-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 seller, continues his popular Bahzell fantasy adventure series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Honor's Milieu 26 janvier 2011
Par Arthur W. Jordin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
In Fire Forged (2011) is the fifth SF anthology in the World of Honor series, following The Service of the Sword. The initial work in this series is More Than Honor.

This work contains four short works by various authors. It includes a novella by the creator.

"Ruthless" by Jane Lindskold is a sequel to "Promised Land" in the previous anthology. A child is kidnapped for political purposes and the queen's brother gets involved.

"An Act of War" by Timothy Zahn is a story of a con artist working a scam in the People's Republic. Honor is involved only at the end.

'"Let's Dance"' by David Weber is about Commander Honor Harrington, captain of the destroyer Hawkwing. She faces a decision that may ruin her career.

"An Introduction to Modern Starship Armor Design" by Andy Presby is a presentation on the history and characteristics of armor protecting spacegoing warships. It includes four appendices.

Like the previous anthologies, this work further illuminates the worlds of Honor Harrington as seen by some of the leading SF authors of today. These stories cover aspects of Honor's milieu that are not covered by the numerous works produced by the creator.

Highly recommended for Weber fans and for anyone else who enjoys tales of future societies, space warfare, and interesting people. Read and enjoy!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Some good stories; Too short 16 février 2011
Par NYC Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
As previous reviewers have noted, the stories in this anthology are good. They either continue threads from earlier anthologies, flesh out the career of Harrington or fit well into the style of the series. I found the technical paper to be mere padding and not really additive to my appreciation for this long and rich series of books and stories. What bothers me is the value proposition offered by Baen. The 3 stories plus the technical appendix weigh in at just over 330 pages; without the index it is about three hundred pages. To justify the purchase I think a fourth story is required, as earlier anthologies in this series had.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Uneven Honorverse Stories 24 mars 2012
Par Toki Mike - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
The 3d story, "Let's dance" might be the best Honor Harrington short story ever published. Early in her career, she finds information about a pirate and slaver base, and she faces a moral trilemma. If she merely reports the data, hundreds of innocents die. If she attacks and fails, she loses her ship, her crew, and her life. And if she attacks and succeeds, she has disobeyed direct orders, created an interplanetary incident, and loses her career.

The 2d story, "An Act of War" by Timothy Zahn is exciting and is marred only by the reader not being sure he wants the con man to save his life from the Peeps by helping them provoke a third empire into a war against Manticore. The 1st story is pleasant but mediocre.

But Honor Harrington fans should read this book even if they only read "Let's Dance."

4.0 étoiles sur 5 4 1/2 stars just short of excellant 5 février 2011
Par G. Robinson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This is a collection of 3 longish shorts and technical paper on armor design.
"Ruthless" follows the story of Michael, Judith and Ruth that started in "Promised Land". The characters are very nicely done and the plot interesting. The ability of the villains of the piece to successfully pull of their deception is rather a stretch and their motive isn't convincingly stated. Although the weakest of the stories, still a very good read.

In "An Act of War" Charles--a con man--has gone back to the Peeps for a second try. If we consider what we found out about the "Mesian Alignment" in Mission of Honor (Honor Harrington, Book 12) his actions and access to advanced tech. as well as intelligence make sense if he is acting as their agent or at least cat's paw. Interesting story, Honor is uninvolved except that her image appears. Intricate plot nicely written not as strong as it could be.

"Lets Dance" involves Honor (commander of the destroyer Hawkwing) in a convoluted plot by the central Silesian government, the sector governor, the Ballroom, and a Mesian/Manpower operation. The plot is well done and I like the way that Honor was rewarded under the table. An excellent story.

The last section "An Introduction to Modern Starship Armor Design" is of interest to tech. inclined fans of the series. Well thought out but for most of us padding. It does offer a nice overview of weapons development--you can't talk about armor without talking about what your armoring against. The article is marred by failure to distinguish between ions and plasma. Ordinary sunlight is ionizing radiation, you simply knock off an electron from a atom or molecule resulting in a positive or negative charge. It doesn't change the state of matter and usually isn't a big deal. Plasma on the other hand is the forth state of matter and doesn't consist of atoms any more. The nuclei are striped of their electrons and the electron/nuclei gas (using gas loosely) is plasma. Its properties are very different from ionized mater and it interacts strongly and differently with magnetic fields. Leading me to speculate that using a magnetic field to push the plasma away from the ship could both limit damage and provide additional shielding by the plasma itself.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Happy, but... 17 mai 2012
Par Kevin T. Bendall - Publié sur Amazon.com

I loved the stories, but... the piece on armor would be better served in a coffee table book on ships and Honor-verse tech for those of us that would like that sort of thing. I felt that it was just used as filler for lack of a better story.
Jane Lindskold has a natural voice for story telling, and in "Ruthless" sets the stage for the characters as we see them in later years.
Timothy Zahn has created an intriguing character, Charles (Last Name Here)that we have met twice now, and I think will make an appearance in the the main line stories of the future. Charles is dancing a fine line in interstellar politics, with multiple agenda's, the obvious ones being the least important. Who is he, really?
Weber's own addition, "Let's Dance" is an important addition to Honor's back-story in that it reveals things alluded to in past volumes, but also takes us back to her early career in Hawkwing and her appearance on the Admiralty's radar. It also shows how the military takes care of it's own, balancing the future of a promising young officer with political realities.
The story I would love to see, and it must be out there, is the story of Chief Harkness' courtship! If I don't find it soon, I will have to write it just for my own entertainment. Just thinking of it make me howl!
Kevinh T. Bendall.
