Early March publication date minus 6-8 weeks for the EARC makes it more of an Epiphany (Twelfth Night) gift than a Christmas gift.


It is no longer on the Baen publishing schedule page. A picture of the cover is on RFC's author page, but without any information. Which suggests sooner than March 2018.


The Fantastic Fiction website https://www.fantasticfiction.com/w/david-weber/ has the release scheduled for March 2018.

I like the Honorverse more, but I'm realist enough to know that the giant steamroller of Star Wars plus Disney will bump just about every competitor.

So don't be surprised if ACoV is delayed until after Thrawn.


Or could this be fallout from RFCs health problems? I'm not clear just how much input he has on these books, but I presume it's more than just a name check on the cover.

I would imagine that by now, RFC has enough clout that if he says anything, it will received serious consideration, at the very least. But as your body ages, it simply won't cope with what you used to be able to get it to do. Many years ago, I really resented being told that I had to give up sport, but when my doctor and my physio both said to me "Look, your back is trying to tell you something," then I just had to put up with it.

It may be that RFC is being told "Look, you really have to slow down." What he does about it is up to him, but from a purely selfish point of view, I hope he listens. I hope he'll be around for a long time yet, to enjoy life, and maybe provide us with the books we enjoy, albeit at a reduced output rate.

I've just had another look at the Fantastic Fiction website, and the release date for "Call to Vengeance" has now been readjusted to next month – specifically, 15 February 2017. :D

according to Baen's publishing schedule, which is currently showing from jan to may of 2017, there is only one David weber book being released and that is the large paperback of "The Sword of The South"

http://www.baen.com/bookdata/schedule

now that is being released in feb so i wonder if there has been an a misunderstanding. though it has to be a big one if somehow "the sword of the South" has become "call to vengeance".

Yes, it does seem a little strange. On one hand, I cannot remember the last time a year passed with nothing new scheduled from RFC, and on the other, it seems a bit counterintuitive for ACtV to have been brought forward by 13 months, after the health problems that both David and Sharon have had, coupled with the gigantic efforts he put in to complete SoV and ATSoT. I could have understood it better if ACtV had been scheduled for sometime in mid-2017.

BTW, has anyone heard anything new about David and Sharon's states of health?

The Baen Publishing Schedule was updated the other day to show what was on the schedule through September and Call to Vengeance was not listed anywhere.
