Weber's Honor Harrington series is a delight even to those of us who don't particularly like military series. The difference is that Weber draws detailed characters on all sides of an issue. His two short stories in this collection continue that tradition, as do his fellow authors. If I had a problem with any of these stories, it was with Green's tale of the Peeps and Manties. The details were overdone and the characterization, the thing I most love about Honor, is found in bits and pieces throughout the book. Still, I would recommend it to anyone wanting more background on Honor's universe. In fact, I would like to see more stories about Stephanie Harrington and Queen Adrienne.
