from RFC facebook page:

While I'm announcing things, I guess I really ought to mention that Richard Fox and I have just signed a 4-book contract with Baen to write the story of the Terran Empire and the House of Murphy. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, for shame! They are prequels to THIS book (see below), which happens to be Sharon Rice-Weber's most favoritest thing I ever wrote. And Sharon, of course, is a SUPERLATIVE judge of literary merit!

And while I am immodestly beating drums, I suppose I MIGHT mention that Richard and I (and collaborators Tim Zahn and Tom Pope, of course) have collected four Dragon Awards for military science fiction. Which just happens to have been awarded for four years.

Signing a contract is one thing, actually fitting those books into your writing schedule, (The one we've already heard about, at least) is an entirely different thing.
Which one of your eagerly awaited books is going to be shelved? (or not) I'm pretty sure that you've said that fitting in the books we've already heard about is going to be pretty difficult to get done. You shouldn't be going back to your old yearly output. It might do bad things to your health, and then where would we be?

PS Even if I had to, I couldn't even begin to pick out just ONE favorite book. That would be asking for the impossible. I can't even pick out just one single SERIES as a favorite, let alone a SINGLE book!

While In Fury born is my favorite novel I don't think that a prequel is the best idea. Especially one that focuses on the grand politic machinations.
I mean I know that that's almost all Mr. Weber writes these days but the strength of this(these) book(s) was that the grand picture was the backdrop for a by far more focused personal story of a single person with only occasional sidetracks to other POVs.
