    Sorry, jeriddian. I'm disappointed too.

    Dang! It's already been two years since "At All Costs"! He must have really needed to take a break.
    Actually, he's been writing other books as well as the Harringtons. He's done several other SF novels that take place outside the "Honorverse." He's also partnered with several other authors on various novels - some of which have developed into their own ongoing series - so he's been rather busy with those. He and his wife also adopted a child from overseas (China, I think - not sure about that). And having a couple of close friends who adopted a little boy from Russia almost ten years ago, I have some idea of how long that process can drag on. So Mr. Weber's had quite a lot on his plate recently. We Harrington fans will just have to be patient for a little while longer.

    A new "Honorverse" book is coming out this month: "Torch of Freedom." Co-written by David Weber and Eric Flint, it picks up where "Crown of Slaves" left off. It's due for release next week, on the 17th. It's from Baen Books (of course), and will cost $26.00 in hardcover.
    (ISBN-13: 978-1-439-13305-7 ISBN: 1-439-13305-0)

    I've seen the book on the bookshelves at Barnes and Noble now. I think the release was delayed some, but it's out there now.

    Cool! I'll have to go pick it up soon. I put it on my Christmas wish list, but no one bought it for me. So, I get to treat myself to this latest volume....
    Thanks for the heads-up, jeriddian!

    I still haven't bought a copy of "Torch of Freedom." I definitely want to read this book before "Mission of Honor" goes on sale in the spring!
    Oh well, perhaps now that I'm working again I can pick it up soon.

    Update! Bought it Saturday the 13th! I'll start reading it soon as I finish the book I'm in now.

    I decided to start reading this series. I requested numbers 1 and 2 from the Western Mass regional library system and now have them in hand.

    I may well buy this one too, even thought it just centers on the one planet. I am REALLY looking towards "Mission of Honor". I think it's going to be interesting to see how Honor and her new family is received on Grayson (perfectly fine, I think). But more importantly, how she's going to handle Home Fleet duties.

    I'm curious about that myself. It'll also be interesting to see how the war with the Republic of Haven goes, considering the turn of events in "Storm from the Shadows."

    EDIT: Campy, I really think you're going to love this series. Mr. Weber's Harrington books are outstanding examples of military SF at its finest. I envy you the thrill of discovery as you read each one for the first time.
    Welcome to the Honorverse!

    Well, the first one was pretty good. I like Honor's cat; hope to see more of him as the series continues.

    The chase scene was very well done. It was reminiscent of the Waakzaamheid's pursuit of HMS Leopard in Patrick O'Brian's Desolation Island.
