Yeah, I don't imagine myself reading anything by Delany ever.

For anyone who is interested, a European outfit named Castalia House has started reprinting Jerry Pournelle's THERE WILL BE WAR series, as well as adding a tenth volume. They are currently only available in electronic format, but I understand that a hardback omnibus of Vol. IX and Vol. X is forthcoming this year.

Finally! The next Honorverse novel, Shadow of Victory, will be released in November of this year. I heard a rumor that the timelines will be reunited in this one.

Yep. And David promised me that Nothing Bad Would Happen.

I hope to make Honor Con again this year. It's immediately prior to the pub date for SHADOW. And I plan to get a couple of copies.

Now I need the next SAFEHOLD. Which should also be out before Honor Con.

Castilia House is run by Vox Day. John C Wright is publishing through them now, though not exclusively.

Vox has something of a sinister rep.

So is Jerry Pournelle.

Oops, I forget that I started this stream of conversation!

Occasionally.

But not each Day.

Well, sadly, Nothing Bad Happens because it is essentially a re-hash/expansion of stuff that's already been related in other books. Quite a disappointing volume to be honest.

That I will.

But I've never read a thing of his I didn't enjoy, so far. Which includes about everything he's written. I think.

Modified: I haven't read SWORD OF THE SOUTH or WIND MAIDEN'S CHOICE or the 3 Star Kingdom titles. Must see to that. Been reading too much WWII.

Or the 2 Manticore Ascendant titles.

Something is seriously amiss.

There are a few chapters that lead me to believe that Weber has not lost his touch. In fact there is one that is downright beautiful. But in honesty, those chapters could have been included in earlier books -- and maybe one could say "should have" as they appear to belong in those books' story arcs, and including them in SOV smacks of "fixing up".

I'll defer to David's art on this. Never been disappointed.

Well, I have the e-ARC (electronic advance reader copy) of Uncompromising Honor in my greedy hands and it seems that Mr. Weber has returned to form. I'm about 2/3 of the way through.

Something Bad is going to happen soon.
