Changer of Worlds
by David Weber
Publisher: Baen Books

WELCOME AGAIN TO THE 
MANY WORLDS OF HONOR

Lady Dame Honor Harrington—starship captain, admiral, Steadholder, and Duchess—has spent decades defending the Star Kingdom of Manticore against all comers. Along the way, she has become the legend known as "the Salamander" from her habit of always being where the fire is hottest . . . and also a national bestseller (Ashes of Victory: #7, The Wall Street Journal).

But it's a big universe, and Honor's actions affect a lot of lives, not all of them human. And their actions affect her—a lesson "Ms. Midshipwoman Harrington" learns years before rising to command rank when a desperate battle against "pirates" who aren't quite what they seem begins her brilliant career.

Closer to home, in "Changer of Worlds," a secret that the alien treecats have kept from their human friends for hundreds of years is about to come out . . . and completely change the relationship between the two species forever.

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."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR AND HOST

Granted, the decade has just begun, but David Weber shows all signs of being the science fiction phenomenon of the decade. Weber is often compared to C.S. Forester (the celebrated creator of Captain Horatio Hornblower), is the recipient of critical praise worthy of Heinlein or Asimov, and has hordes of voracious fans clamoring for more and more Weber. Fortunately for them, Weber keeps steadily producing book after book with first printings that sell out almost immediately, then go back into printing after printing after printing. His novels range from epic fantasy (Oath of Swords, The War God's Own) to breathtaking space opera (Path of the Fury, The Armageddon Inheritance) to military science fiction with in-depth characterization (the celebrated and awesomely popular Honor Harrington novels, the New York Times bestselling Ashes of Victory being the latest). Reviewers call Weber "irresistible .  . masterful" (Publishers Weekly), "highly entertaining" (Booklist), "outstanding . . . superb . . . excellent" (Wilson Library Bulletin), "remarkable" (Kliatt), "the best" (Dragon), "worth shouting about" (Philadelphia Weekly Press), "great" (Locus), and "the best writer around today" (FosFax). Readers call Weber similar things, but mostly they call the Baen offices several times a week demanding more from their main man. Weber lives in South Carolina and, in spite of having gotten married a year ago, shows no sign of slowing down. . . .

I enjoyed this book and have re-read almost all the stories a few times. What I would like to know is is there a sequel to 'Changer of Worlds' ?

2. Jakub on 9/11/2011, said:

The biggest problem with this collection of short stories is that they are completely dependant on other works for their background, to the point of near-incomprehensibility to someone who never had read the core series. This is especially true for "Changer of Worlds" and "Nightfall", both good stories in themselves but ones that would have to explode to at least novella size if one was to give them background detailed enough to be truly understood on their own.

The epub version is now fixed. Thank you Baen! From the Highlands is one of my favorite stories in the Honorverse. It makes this anthology a must read.

The epub version is corrupted. Ms. Midshipwoman Harrington is covered over by From the Highlands. It's that way on the disc I got with Mission of Honor too.

5. Peter on 8/26/2010, said:

Enjoyed the individual tales but they were completely unconnected. There was a throwaway reference to Honour at the end of the third, but it really didn't link up at all. Better to read these as completely unrelated than assume any thread or theme.

Read "On Basilisk Station" next. It's actually the first book in the series, and the whole series is terrific. I almost resent it when David Weber publishes books that are not in the Honor Harrington series, because HE COULD HAVE SPENT THAT TIME WRITING ABOUT Honor!!
