Trying to think of a favourite author who hasn't been named, I like all nominated so far.
Taylor Anderson.
Harry Turtledove.
George Martin.


Of those nominated my favourites in no particular order would be. Jim Stirling, John Ringo, Jim Butcher, Eric Flint, Elizabeth Moon, Mercedes Lackey, and Steve White.

Linda Howard spice things up a bit.

&

Jeff Abbott.

David has the SciFy aspects covered, his romance novel skills not as much as Linda Howard.

Jeff Abbott will add the spy / entertainment / business aspects.

There are lots of Scify authors but RFC doesn't need help on Scify. You hire people who do what you don't to fill in the gaps of what you don't specialize in.

In the end the product is more than just more SciFy.

Which is always the best SciFi anyway. It is about the social commentary, a less threatening way to reflect upon our own culture/world.

Judy L Nye

Robert Asprin.

They do a good job on the AAAhz and Skeeve series as well as the Phule's company series.

While they don't play well in military SF I also think: Nancy Kress and Kristine Katherine Rusch would have fun playing in the Honorverse.

Asprin would have been a good choice, except he died in 2008. Another writer to add to the list of who'd have to turn his work in by medium or seance. And Jody didn't work in the Phule's Company series. Robert's coauthor there was Peter Heck, I believe.

My two or three manticoran cents....

C J Cherryh- I super enjoyed her Chanur series and one of my favorite books of hers isn't even SciFi (that would be "The Paladin") I think she could do very well with the Honorverse material.

Mike Stackpole- The Author that got me into miniature wargaming (via his early battletech novels). His Star Wars books I felt were pretty good and if he can wrap his head around the Honorverse stuff, I think he'd do well.

Loren L Coleman- Another battletech writer who has dabbled in other genre (Conan, Star Trek) and done well.

(disclaimer- I have met both Stackpole and Coleman... and both were pretty cool when I met them...)

Nonetheless I'm curious - If you could influence the decision somehow - from which author (aside the ones who already had the honor) you would like to read a Honoverse-short-story?

I, for example, would like to read, how someone like Nnedi Okorafor (Binti, Who fears death, Akata witch) would use the Honorverse to put some new facettes into it.
