…for Manticore and Grayson.
Have you ever been to a bakery when you were hungry? Have you had that particular feeling of being surrounded by wonder in so many different directions that you have no way to narrow it down? Of course, the only answer is that you try your favorites on the menu, then come back again another day, right?
That was the situation we found ourselves in when David Weber asked us to help build a companion to the 20 year series that is the Honorverse. David’s writing is filled with detail and descriptions, and led us to questions, discussions, wild goose chases, and at least a metric ton of really cool, amazing information. For the last year, we have been carefully building this Honorverse Companion, only to realize that we had too many great things to choose from.
So, with much deliberation and a few suggestions from David Weber, we tailored our approach to include only the Manticorans and the Graysons, easily two of our favorite “treats.” David’s accompanying novella sheds light on a fascinating character that deeply affects the current Manticoran government. And for people who love the backstory, BuNine has collected and expanded the information available on technology, social structure, history, and characters.
House of Steel: Honorverse Companion is due out May 7th, 2013, and is already available on Amazon for pre-order here.
If it is well received, we hope to continue with further sweet treats – Companion Two would feature information about the Havenites, the Andermani, and Erewhon. We hope to take another trip to the Honorverse with David’s fans soon!
