Is this in the works? It would be extremely useful, although I'm not sure how the last one performed to justify the creation of it. May in a few more years after more technological changes, we can see a new book released. One for Safehold would be nice as well.

The next two volumes of the Honorverse companion are supposed to be called House of Lies and House of Shadows, and I haven't heard anything about them for a long time.

Ditto, but I think there would be some major issues for us if we used that title ;)

Not to go into too much detail, but BuNine has been slowly working on it (House of Lies) in between real-life stuff going on. Can't even give a rough estimate on when it'll be out, so all we ask for is a bit of patience.

House of Shards would work quite well too. Perhaps even better.

I've always thought a Weber book in the same vein as the Star Trek Technical manual would sell for several bars of Gold-pressed Latinum, made available by any Ferengi.

Why that manual? Why, for the exhaustive technical data along with up to date highly detailed glossy maps.

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

Well, you know the Prayer for Patience:

(Said with gritted death) "Dear Lord, please give me patience. I need it right now."

Hey MaxxQ, any recent artwork?

RFC said "refitting a Beowulfan SD to Manticoran standards would be just as difficult as refitting a standard SLN SD to those standards. In other words, it would be cheaper and faster to build new ships."

Frankly, I would far more get the next book in the Honor universe, one that begins the new arc...although I have heard rumors there will be a Zilwicki and Cachat book coming.

Unfortunately, no. The same real-life issues keeping us from finishing the Companion are also interfering with me getting the sketches I need to update the current crop of ships, then move on to stuff I haven't done yet. Seems that when one of us has time, the rest are busy, and vice-versa.

S'why I haven't been here much recently, and soon, it will be our busy season at work (holidays are rough on jewelers), which in the past has meant 12-14 hour days, 6-7 days a week for about 3 months.
