Hope for what? That Weber will kill him off?

I suppose I'd settle for an injury to the vocal cords, suffered in battle. Why Weber decided to make a thinly disguised orc go around talking like Gene Stratton-Porter's Freckles, I'll never know.

I'm very fond of On Baselisk Station, though.

Mr. Weber said he "would" - but with so many other and more lucrative books it's highly unlikely - to do 2 more Bazhells and 5 prequels. I used to dislike that series, but the latest novella bundled with the reissue of Bazhell 1 is excellent and made me reconsider. In OAR and especially BSRA, Mr Weber showed he can do epic fantasy with the best - the comparison in Sfweekly with GRRM is not far fetched by any means- despite its sfnal trappings BSRA is epic fantasy in style and execution, just that magic is provided by an AI - and I hope he could show that mastery in any new Bazhell. Just stop rationalizing gods and magic and things will get better...

As far as Weber is concerned, I'm waiting for the third in the Hell's Gate series.
Thanks for the suggestion! I tried the Sheepfarmer's Daughter a few months ago and couldn't get into it (just couldn't really like the main character). But these are a bit different? I've heard a lot of things about Elizabeth Moon!

wayrad--I absolutely love Lois McMaster Bujold! Sadly the first Miles book I read was one of the last ones ( ) but I'm slowly working my way forward through the series I just read Cordelia's Honor and am on to Barrayar!

Oh dear, I hope Weber doesn't kill off Harrington! I'm all about enough deaths to make things realistic, but I guess I just like to think of characters like Honor as immortal (as silly as that sounds).

Thanks for all of the replies!

I completely agree on the Sheepfarmer's Daughter but that is very different from the "Heris Serrano series" which, for me, was vary similar to Weber's Honor series just a different character.

Weber's new book: By Schism Rent Asunder

This month 3 books by 3 of my SF/Fantasy favorite authors were released in hardcover and I purchased all of them at my local B&N.

But I really love reading on my Sony Reader so I decided to try to find ebook versions that I would also purchase. I quickly found Harry Turtledove's Man With the Iron Heart -- but only at the Sony Connect store, not at Fictionwise. The price was fine for a new release (only out a couple of weeks), $12.60.

But I couldn't find anywhere either Weber's By Schism Rent Asunder or LE Modesitt's Mage-Guard of Hamor. Considering that Weber seems to be an ebook proponent, does anyone have a suspicion as to why the e-book version isn't available?

Also, what I found surprising was that if the Turtledove book is available at Sony, why Fictionwise didn't have it. Any ideas?

By Schism Rent Asunder is a Tor book, not Baen. I assume it will be up on Webscriptions with the rest of initial Tor offer once Arnold fixes up whatever needs to be fixed.

For those interested you can bid on a specially-signed hardcover copy of By Schism Rent Asunder by David Weber or other military themed SF novels that have been donated for the Valour-IT 2008 auction. All funds received go directly to our wounded troops; 100% of your donation to Project Valour-IT will be used to purchase laptops and other technology that will support recovery and provide independence and freedom to wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines.
