The Honor of the Queen

By Popular Demand,
the Most Popular Starship
Commander of All

First Time in Hardcover!

It can no longer be denied: David Weber is The Next Big Name. Hordes of fans have been bombarding our website and your stores with demands for more! more! more! David Weber. And then they started complaining about the first five Honor Harrington novels being available only in paperback. It seems that after the ninth or tenth time they reread the books, they start falling apart. The customer is always right, at least about Honor Harrington, and in February 1999 we offered a special limited collector’s hardcover edition of On Basilisk Station. The response was successful, to say the least, and we followed up with a hardcover edition of Field of Dishonor, and now present Honor of the Queen, again in a special hardcover edition with a pictorial binding, and at a special paperback-sized price.

“Old-fashioned space opera is alive and well [in] David Weber’s The Honor of the Queen. . . .”

—Science Fiction Age


“The Honor of the Queen . . . is worth shouting about. . . . I want more!”

—Philadelphia Weekly Press

“In terms of space combat, I think David Weber may be the best writer around . . . a top-notch read.”




David Weber scarcely needs an introduction. His popular Honor Harrington novels, Ashes of Victory being the ninth, rapidly sell out, go back to press, and sell out again. His collaboration with Steve White, In Death Ground, went back to press almost immediately. His Ashes of Victory>, the keenly anticipated sequel to Echoes of Honor, is being published in hardcover simultaneously with the first paperback publication of Worlds of Honor. He has also written highly successful novels of both science fiction and fantasy for Baen, and is (of course) working on the next Honor Harrington Novel..
