%A DavidWeber
%T Shadow of Saganami, The

This is a new series in the Honorverse featuring characters somewhat more junior than HH. Which is to say, almost anybody these days. 

Having said that, several of the characters are midshipmen/women and other junior characters met elsewhere. An interesting bunch - Abigail Hearns, Helen Zilwicki, Aubrey Wanderman (now a Senior Chief), Ginger Lewis (now an Lt Cdr) plus others.

I read my copy on the weekend just gone andenjoyed it a lot.

Comments: Oh my. Manpower & the Office of Frontier Security have been very naughty. Also very stupid. If there is too much more of this it could lead to Elizabeth being more irritated with Manpower than the Peeps...

Actually, all-in-all, I'd say that they're well on the way already.

I can easily see Good Queen Berry negotiating a settlement between the Republic and the Star Kingdom. The problem with her is that people like her, and tend not to want to disappoint her!

After that, I'd say that OFS, Mesa and certain trading lines will be in for a nasty shock!

I hope so.

The problem with the current Manticore-Haven war is that there are no real villains on either side (barring a certain Secretary of State).

Mesa and the OFS on the other hand deserve a seriously good whacking.

Well I'm mildly concerned anyway...

Off subject a little here, but apart from SuperNova is there anywhere in Perth that actually sells David Weber reliably? I am still trying to read a lot of his work and am finding it hard to locate his stuff anywhere but online and overseas.

Uhhh...

No.

Not that I know of. AFAIK, the only specialist store in Perth is S/N, and none of the chains seem to carry Baen. That pretty much leaves mail-order from Slow Glass or Amazon.



(Gloat mode) Not that I care, preferring to buy the very cheap e-books that Baen publish! Go WebScriptions! Rah! Rah! Rah!  (/Gloat)

You could give Mark a copy of the Windrider's CD which would solve his problems nicely.

In other news Eric Flint has (finally) started work on Dance of Time...

... Except Mark doesn't do e-books.

I've made the offer...even offered a device to read them on as well...

But, well, e-books are not for everyone.  And there is something about paper.

03 9489 0893 is the number for Slow Glass Books. Justin does mail order so anything you want can be delivered to your door.

I prefer paper as well...when I can get it. Which is only some of the time given my travel arrangements

Most of the time, electronic works as a stopgap.

I have to admit to being tempted by the newer PDA's.

I have been put off e-books in the past by the weight of the readers and my habit of reading in bed without my glasses. I am short sighted so I have to hold the book in front of my nose just about, so too much weight makes it a chore.

But there is something more substantial about paper :)

The paperback for Shadow of Saganami is now out. However I have seen a rumour that it contains a glossary lifted from At All Costs.

If this is the case do not read the glossary. It will spoil certain, uh, toys that appear for the 1st time in At All Costs...
