... Weber remains my favorite though but I think Zahn will blend with him as well as Flint does and that promises good stuff coming in the future.
That is my hope, Flint seems to be closest in feel to Weber out of the non-Weber HH stuff I have read. So maybe it will be OK.
Parson: I get confused by the different HH 'classifications'. I tend to think in terms of the core HH books, Then Honorverse I treat as being the four complete books: Crown of Slaves (W+F), Torch of Freedom (W+F), Shadow of Saganami (W) and Storm From the Shadows (W). Then the Worlds of Honor books are the short story collections from a number of different authors. It is the latter ones that I have read only one of and only really liked Weber's contribution.
Oh and I had forgotten Bujold. I do like her work but not as much as Moon and Moon not as much as Weber.
You know I wondered whether I ought to be giving that series a second chance; I guess you've just answered that one for meVertigo -- I agree with you about the series with Ringo --- I"m embarrassed to report that I actually read 2 of them hoping for better. It got worse!
But Timothy Zahn's Star Wars stuff is highly regarded, If I recall correctly I read one of them. But more importantly I read the first 3 of the "Cobra" series. (I see he has several more out.) But those first 3 were solid. Solid ideas, solid characters, and a solid plot. I'm excited about the prospect.
