Présentation de l'éditeur

DAVID WEBER
In just a few short years, David Weber has shot to the forefront of science fiction with his top-selling novels of Honor Harrington, the toughest, smartest starship captain in the galaxy. Now two more military SF world-beaters join him in Honor's universe, bringing their own celebrated skills in this homage to Honor.

DAVID DRAKE
Creator of Hammer's Slammer's

S. M. STIRLING
Creator of the Draka

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

A lifetime military history buff, David Weber has carried his interest in history into his fiction.  In the New York Times best selling Honor Harrington series, the spirit of both C.S. Forester's Horatio Hornblower and history's Admiral Nelson are evident.  With over five million copies of his books in print, David Weber is the fastest rising star in the Science Fiction universe.  His Honor Harrington series boasts over 3 million copies in print, and Weber has had over thirteen of his titles on The New York Times Best Seller List.  War of Honor, book 10 in the series appeared on over twelve Best Seller lists, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and USA TODAY.

While he is best known for his spirited, modern-minded space operas, he has also developed a fantasy series, of which two books have been published:  Oath of Swords and The War God's Own.  David's solo work also includes three novels of the "Dahak" series, and the stand alone novels:  Path of the Fury and The Excalibur Alternative.

Weber's first published novels grew out of his work as a war game designer for the Task Force game Starfire.  With collaborator Steve White, Weber has written four novels set in that universe: Insurrection, Crusade, In Death Ground, and The Shiva Option.

Recent bestsellers in planetary adventures also include the teamwork of John Ringo in the best selling Empire of Man series where the titles March Upcountry, March to the Sea, March to the Stars and We Few have made appearances on The New York Times List.

Weber's proliferation continues with author Eric Flint, where they joined forces in the Best Selling "Ring of Fire" alternate history series, for 1634: The Baltic War, coming in May.

A popular guest at science fiction conventions, Weber makes his home in South Carolina with his wife Sharon, three children and a passel of dogs.

"A Beautiful Friendship" de David Weber :
Une partie de l'attrait et de l'originalité de la série de Honor Harrington repose sur l'existence des Chats Sylvestre et le lien télépathique qu'ils établissent pour la vie avec un être humain. Hélas jusqu'à présent ces chats n'ont occupé que des seconds rôles dans l'histoire de Honor Harrington et n'ont donc pas été très développés.
D'où l'existence de cette nouvelle où David Weber fournit tout ce que vous vouliez savoir sur ces néo-chats à six pattes.

Mieux, il a également écrit une vraie nouvelle avec de bons personnages, une intrigue et de la tension dramatique (“Attention, un hexa-puma … argggg !”).
Vous suivrez donc les aventures de Stephanie Harrington, lointaine ancêtre donc de notre héroïne actuelle. Stephanie est une adolescente surdouée dont la famille vient d'émigrer de Manticore vers Sphinx et se retrouve donc isolée au milieu de la forêt, loin de tout habitat un peu conséquent. De plus ses parents ont des jobs forts exigeants.

Stephanie a donc du temps, beaucoup de temps, elle décide donc d'élucider le mystère du céleri-qui-disparaît … si, si, ne riez pas, voila in fine ce qui va faire voler en éclat la discrétion de nos amis chats.
Car nos petits amis observent les humains depuis leur arrivée sur leur planète et ont même réussi à passer totalement inaperçu jusque là.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book - but not part of the H.H. storyline! 29 décembre 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This paperback contains three short stories, only one of which is written by David Weber. This book DOES NOT continue the current storyline with Honor Harrington, as in the other Honor books. Instead, the stories in this book are set in the Honor universe, but do not contain any details about Honor herself.

I especially enjoyed the first story, by Weber, which detailed the story of the first partnership between Treecat and Human, as hinted at by Honor in a previous book. While more of a "light" read than his other stories, I found it completely enjoyable. You learn quite a bit more about Treecats, since the story is told partially from their point of view.

The other two stories were good as well, and expanded our knowledge of the HH Universe, but I didn't think they were quite as exciting as some of Mr. Weber's work. However, the stories are enjoyable, and point out the fact that there is plenty of room for other tales besides those of Honor Harrington.

The last section is quite a treat, at least if you are a person who loves detailed pseudo-histories of fictional universes. Mr. Weber has taken the time to share some of his detailed notes with us, in the form of historical accountings and explanations of everything from how the Kingdom of Manticore was founded (complete with working details of the Manticore Government), to technology and space travel. If you enjoyed his other technical discussions in previous books, you will want to get this book.

Overall, I enjoyed the book, it helped ease the yearning for the next book in the Honor series, and helped expand my understanding and enjoyment of the series. A good book and a good read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Background! 11 février 2001
Par Daniel C. Sobral - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
Note to people unfamiliar with David Weber series. This book takes places in the universe of the Honor Harrington series (which started with On Basilisk Station). One of the stories, A Whiff of Grapeshot, might give more background into the series than one might like until after Honor Among Enemies, and the last part of the book gives general background into the universe, including history, politics and technology. For these reasons, the overall value of this book for non-fans of the series is rather low.
For the *fans* of the series, on the other hand, there are three reasons to buy this book.
First, the first tale, A Beautiful Friendship, tells the story of the first contact between human and treecats, a six-legged arboreal telepath sentient being alien being with some very feline features. Insights into treecat's culture and abilities, the story of the first adoption, and why do 'cats like celery so much, all of that you'll find here. It also shows that some of Honor's ancestors could give her a good run for her money. :-)
Second, the third tale, tell us of some events that happen at the beginning of In Enemy hands, on the side of The People's Republic of Haven, which are only refered to in that book, never described. Insight into Haven's leadership minds.
Third, the last section of the book, is a pretty deep background on the physics of space travel in HH universe, how the universe was colonized, history, geography and politics of the Kingdom of Manticore, history and some politics of the Solarian League and the People's Republic of Haven and comments on the military capabilities of Peeps and Manties at the beginning of the conflict. It covers nothing of what happens after the beginning of the series, nothing about treecats and nothing about Silesian Confederacy or the Andermani Empire. Moreover, all the really important notes are already in the series. Still, for those who just MUST know everything there is to know about the series, it has interesting details.
David Drake's story is a disppointment, though. While the story has a few remarks to link it to HH universe, you would just have to change a few names and one would NEVER find any relation between this story and that universe. I suppose the story might be good, but this is just not Honor Harrington universe.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Background Builds 11 juin 2005
Par John A Lee III - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
This is the second collection of shorts built around the "Honorverse" of David Weber. In this one, Honor Harrington does not appear at all but that doesn't stop it from being a good read. It consists of 3 short fiction stories and 1 "background" essay.

"A Beautiful Friendship" is by Weber. It details the story of Stephanie Harrington, Honor's ancestor, and her place as the first human to be adopted by a treecat. It is a good adventure story of an intelligent but headstrong young girl on a frontier planet. The genes that will eventually be passed on to Honor are present and visible.

"A Grand Tour" is the work of David Drake. It tells the story of an aristocratic scholar form Manticore who learns of an act of piracy by a Havenite ship. Since he has a reserve naval commission, he takes matters into his own hands using, of all things, a light cruiser won in a poker came. It comes across much more believably than it sounds.

"A Whiff of Grapeshot" is from S. M. Stirling. It takes place entirely on Haven and tells the story of the suppression of the Leveler revolt alluded to in some of the Honor Harrington stories.

"The Universe of Honor Harrington" is the background essay from Weber. In it, he details humanities march to the stars, describes the technology that makes it possible and looks at the political systems of Manticore and some of the other polities encountered in his series. It is well worth the read for fans.

This is an excellent little volume.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 More Than Honor, a fan's perspective 7 avril 2000
Par Mark Roth - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
First off, this book is an invitation to share in the universe of Honor Stephanie Harrington. No more, no less.
The first story is background, the beginning of the relationship between men and treecats.
The second story is David Drake being funny again. (See his `All The Way To The Gallows' to see him REALLY being funny.)
Steve Stirling's `A Whiff Of Grapeshot' is truly significant background, because it gives an insight into the character of Esther McQueen and how she was able to accomplish her victories in `Echoes Of Honor.' In `Flag In Exile' and `Honor Among Enemies', she was just a name. `A Whiff Of Grapeshot' made her a person.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Additional information enhances the Honor universe. 22 août 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Many Honor Harrington readers become rabid fans in short order.
Often, for fans like these there can never be enough of a series to keep them happy, but this collaberative effort does more than offer a quick "Honor fix." The book offers three short stories and an essay, none of which are *about* Admiral Harrington herself, but all of which are entertaining and informative.
The essay is by David Webber (the stories are by Webber and other notable authors, Drake and Stirling) and sheds a great deal of light on the details of the history, politics, science, and geography of the universe of the RMN... It is well thought through, entertaining, and fairly complete, the sort of details that will make any universe even more enjoyable to a thorough, intelligent reader.
Although not an Honor Harrington book per se, this addition to the list of Webber's publications is well worth the while for anyone interested in who Honor is and where she comes from.
