Dr. Scott MacDallan was, by dint of much sweating and swearing, trying to turn a wriggling, ungrateful little demon of a breech-birth infant for head-down delivery, when the stray arrived on the doorstep. Read the first page

4.0 out of 5 stars All but one of the stories are top-flight! 3 Jan 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
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.

Worlds of Honor has four wonderful stories and one rather execrable one. My favorite was What Price Dreams? by Weber. The insights into tree-cat culture are fascinating to those interested in the tree-cats. The Stray (Linda Evans), Queen's Gambit (Jane Lindskold), and The Hard Way Home (Weber) are all good reads. The last story, Deck Load Strike (Roland Green) was a real let-down; I think it was bad editing to make it last because it kind of ruins the whole feeling of the book. The story seemed really bare to me. It lacked detail and characterization, and also didn't grab my attention the way the other stories did. However, for me Worlds of Honor was worth the price because the first four stories were very interesting and entertaining. My advice is to read the last story first and then proceed in order. That way, you'll be happy at the end of your read.:)

3.0 out of 5 stars 'The Stray' is painful to read! 9 Aug 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Everyone else reviewing this book seems to have a problem with the final story 'Deck Load Strike', but the one which sticks out in my mind for sheer appallingness is 'The Stray' by Linda Evans. It's very rarely that I am unable to finish a story, but the style in which Evans writes is so clumsy and 'amateurish' that it was actually painful, and after a dozen pages I couldn't take any more. It is beyond my comprehension why the editor chose to open the collection with such a turkey!
Many people also seem to be advocating Weber's 'The Hard Way Home', however I felt this was far from being his best work, and tended towards schmaltzy sentimentality.
By far the best story in the collection is Jane Lindskold's 'Queen's Gambit', which strikes the perfect balance of evoking sympathy for the characters without becoming blubbery schoolgirl mush.
