Weber Universal Outfitters has a long standing relationship with David Weber going back a number of years and has other things of interest as well.

More expensive than Amazon, especially for postage to Australia, but the signature is worth it

I'm gonna have to work an extra night shift just to cover that.

.....worth it.

ETA: Of course, I could just get mine signed at HonorCon, I suppose... 8-)

Link is to the Amazon order page for the book. It's the only image I could find of the cover.

I like it, too. The ships look right to me, at least. My only possible quibble would be with Honor's rank insignia. I tried to compare it with the one in House of Steel, but frankly my eyesight is so bad I can't make out the details in the HoS illustration even with a magnifying glass.

She's apparently wearing a Admiral of the Fleet insignia considering she commands Grand Fleet and holds the equivalent of Fleet Admiral in two of the three component fleets, I am not surprised.

I like the way she's learned to throw lightning from her fingers.

Admiral [noting yet another Manty tech surprise]:
XO, what's the budget for the ONI?
Vice Admiral: I don't recall exactly, sir. Several billion quatloos.
Admiral: ... What do you suppose they did with all that money?

I don't care what's on the cover. I don't even care if there is a cover.

I want what's inside. I want the book.

I'm surprised you don't recognize the process.

She's charging the levelled missile batteries.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense
