War's das jetzt?

Nope. Um mal Uli Hoeness zu zitieren "Das war's noch nicht" ) Ernsthaft: David plant, ins Honorverse zurückzukehren, etwa 20 Jahre Handlungszeit später, und den Kampf gegen das Alignment von Honors, Emily's und Hamishs Kindern ausfechten zu lassen. Außerdem hat es ja eine "Fahnenflucht" zu den Mächten des Lichts hin gegeben, die der Suche nach dem Bolthole des Alignments neuen Schwung verleiht ... und was (z.B.) aus einer der Mandarinen wurde, ist ebenfalls ungeklärt. Ob er das in den nächsten 1...

Snippets zum nächsten Roman "Uncompromising Honor"

Und der Schluß dieses Snippets Zitat von »David Weber« “Shit.” Omosupe Quartermain seldom used colorful language, but she’d clearly decided to make an exception, and Kolokoltsov didn’t blame her. With less than a third of Beowulf System’s population, and perhaps a fifth of its gross system product, Hypatia was on the small size for what was technically a Core System of the League. For that matter, as a full member system, Hypatia’s contribution to the Solarian League’s federal budget was limited...

Weiter geht es mit Teil 2 Zitat von »David Weber« “Oh, I do it much more for pleasure than professionally,” Lessem said. “I even got Martin to take it up, and he’s remarkably good at it. To be honest, I’m looking for a new challenge for him.” “You are, are you?” Honor smiled. “Well, in that case, you’ve come to the right place.” “I have?” Lessem’s eyebrows arched, and Honor’s smile grew broader. “Oh, yes. Tell me, are you familiar with the phrase ‘dosey doe’?” George Benton Tower City of Old Chi...

Es geht weiter - wieder ein 3-teiliges Snippet. Hier kommt Teil 1 Zitat von »David Weber« Lessem gave her a startled glance, then snorted in sudden understanding. “Been brooding about it, has she?” “Only sometimes,” Emily replied in the judicious tone of someone trying to be scrupulously fair. “Not more than every other time I see her.” “Then consider her kicked,” Lessem promised. “Oh, thank you both so much.” Honor rolled her eyes while Hamish and her father chuckled. “And you two aren’t helpin...

Und der letzte Teil Zitat von »David Weber« “Mother, you’re incorrigible!” Honor laughed and shook her head. “And, to be honest, I think Emily may be thinking in that direction, too.” Her smile turned warm. “Hamish and I will never be able to thank you enough for getting her past that particular block.” “Even if I was pushy, insufferable, and meddlesome?” “No! Were you really?” Honor gazed at her in astonishment. “I didn’t realize. I thought you were just being your normal self.” She paused a be...

Teil 2 von 3 Zitat von »David Weber« Like Bryce Tarkovsky, he worked for Brigadier Meindert Osterhaut, the CO of Marine Intelligence under Admiral Karl-Heinz Thimár’s nominal command as part of the Office of Naval Intelligence. He’d spent twelve T-years seconded to Frontier Security, during which he’d acquired a deep familiarity with the complexities of the Protectorates and the Fringe in general, and Osterhaut had come to rely on that familiarity. He was smart, hard-working, and insightful. He ...

Snippets zum nächsten Roman "Uncompromising Honor"

Es geht weiter. David hat übrigens gesagt, dass diese letzten Snippets von einer Buchversion stammen, die neuer ist als die, welche als eARC verkauft wird. Wie auch immer - das Snippet ist wieder sehr umfangreich (26.500 Zeichen) -ich werde es also wieder in 3 Teilen posten. Zitat von »David Weber« “Bryce is right,” Okiku said. “That’s why this is like chasing ghosts. And don’t forget we have to be able to demonstrate whatever we finally do find well enough to convince him someone else, not just...

Und der Schluß dieses Snippets ... Zitat von »David Weber« Capriotti returned the nod, then turned back to the master plot as Québec and the rest of the task force decelerated toward Orca. He watched the moving icons and wondered how much of his unavailability stemmed from the PR requirements and psychological warfare aspects of Buccaneer . . . and how much of it stemmed from shame. He remembered his words to Captain Timberlake in their first discussion of the ops order, and they were bitter on ...

Teil 3 von 4 Zitat von »David Weber« “I’m afraid I’m quite serious, Madame President,” he said in reply, then sat back to wait out the six-minute communications lag. At the moment, TF 783 was almost 56,000,000 kilometers from the planet Orca, just over ten light-minutes inside the Cachalot System hyper-limit, closing with the planet at 18,119 KPS and decelerating at a steady 300 G. Given that geometry, they would reach Orca orbit in another hour and forty minutes, and their recon platforms had b...

Teil 2 von 4 Zitat von »David Weber« “Officially, Barregos has been buying locally produced warships from Erewhon as a way to inveigle the Erewhonese back into our sphere of influence, and that seems to have been working. But it’s painfully evident that another reason Barregos’s done it is to get some kind of window into the new technologies. Erewhon’s only a minor power compared to Manticore or Haven, and its navy is outside the loop on these latest, god-awful weapons the Manties are deploying ...

Für diejenigen, die sich das e-ARC nicht leisten können oder wollen, aber trotzdem wissen möchten, wie es weitergeht - David hat ein neues reguläres Snippet veröffentlicht. Das ist wieder ziemlich lang (~30.800 Zeichen) - so, dass ich es in 4 Teilen posten werde. Aber genug der Vorrede ... hier kommt Teil 1 von 4 Zitat von »David Weber« “Of course not. Doesn’t make me any happier contemplating what we’re up against, though. Assuming they exist.” Weng’s smile was even thinner than Blanton’s had b...

Zitat von »Isvarian« Harrr... 15 Dollar für ne EArc plus Zwangsregistrierung und natürlich wieder ein eigenes Bezahlsystem... ein simpler Gastzugang und direktes Paypal wäre ja auch zu einfach gewesen, schätze ich. Aber gut, ich "darf" es ja eh erst in die Wiki schreiben , wenn Bastei-Lübbe dann 2045 die deutsche Übersetzung geschafft hat ... so von wegen "Isvarian, hör verdammt nochmal auf, alles zu spoilern, wir wollen es auch noch selbst lesen" Baen bietet Paypal als Zahlungsmethode an - und...

Teil 3 von 3 Zitat von »David Weber« “— so from our analysts’ perspective, it looks to me like we’re in pretty good shape right now,” Sonja Hemphill said much later that night, sitting across the supper table from Foraker with an after-dinner glass of brandy in hand. “I doubt the Sollies fully appreciate the powered ranges our MDMs can reach — we’ve tried hard enough to keep them from figuring it out, at any rate — and I’m almost positive they can’t really appreciate the accuracy Apollo makes po...

Teil 2 von 3 Zitat von »David Weber« Forge One Refuge System “I’m impressed, Admiral,” Sonja Hemphill said as she and Admiral Shannon Foraker stepped out of the lift car and walked down a short passageway. Foraker’s yeoman popped to attention as they entered the admiral’s outer office. She waved a casual hand at him, but he held the position and cut his eyes briefly sideways to his superior’s guest. The pause in Foraker’s stride was barely perceptible, but then she cleared her throat. “At ease, ...

Maxi-Snippet, Teil 6 Zitat von »David Weber« One of the conditions upon which Massimo Filareta’s survivors had been allowed to surrender had been the preservation of their computer cores. Several commanding officers had scrubbed their computers anyway, which was why those particular COs were spending their current confinement in somewhat less than palatial conditions. Most, however, had honored their promise. A lot of them had figured — quite reasonably, in Knight’s opinion — that after what the...

If there is, then the final decision on Parthian will be mine, anyway. I want all three of you, though, to be thinking about the possibility that S&P isn’t right and considering what I suppose you might call a partial Parthian. The outer system’s infrastructure, especially in the S...

I know all of you have a lot of i’s to dot and t’s to cross — and, if I haven’t mentioned this, I’m very happy with all of you for the way you’ve already dug in on that — but we all know perfectly well that the people who planned this must’ve missed something. Hopefully, it’s something minor, but it might not be. So I want each of you to spend the next twelve hours or so going...
