Okay. Since people have been asking, here's what's going on production wise.

(1) INTO THE LIGHT (with Chris Kennedy) — the sequel to OUT OF THE DARK — is coming out in January 2021.

(2) GOVERNOR (with Richard Fox) — the first in a prequel series set in the FURY universe, but three or four centuries earlier. It will follow the creation of the Terran Empire and the creation of the Cadre. It is scheduled for June of 2021.

(3) STILL UNTITLED (with Eric Flint) — we have a working title, but neither of us thrilled with it. The next in the Victor and Anton thread (with Damien Harahap now added to the mix) in the Honorverse — is currently scheduled for October 2021, I believe.

(4) FOOLS IN PERIL (with Jane Lindskold) — the next Stephanie Harrington novel. The title is still flexible. I am finishing up my edit on the manuscript this weekend (hopefully), but it's not scheduled yet.

(5) A CALL TO INSURRECTION (with Tim Zahn and Tom Pope) — Tom and I have delayed Tim quite a lot on this one, with health problems and some other issues. The manuscript is now back in Tim's hands; it's about 40% complete, and that's about all I can tell you about that one right this minute. Except to reiterate that the delay is not Tim's fault in any way.

(6) The sequel to THE VALKYRIE PROTOCOL (with Jacob Holo) — Jacob has completed his first draft, and that's part of the deck clearing I need to get to Sometime Real Soon Now™.

(7) HONOR HARRINGTON ANTHOLOGY — this one has been hanging fire for YEARS, and I intend to get my story for it written and then get it into the pipeline ASAP.

(8) planning sessions: I need to get with Chris to plan the sequel to INTO THE LIGHT, with Richard to plan the sequel to GOVERNOR, with Jane to plan the next Stephanie novel, and with Joelle Presby to plan the sequel to THE ROAD TO HELL.

(9) NEXT SAFEHOLD BOOK — this is my next solo writing project, which I will begin the instant I have enough breathing space on the collaborations.

(10) NEXT NORFRESSA BOOK — the sequel to THE SWORD OF THE SOUTH, which will be the solo project following immediately after Safehold.

There! At least you can tell I really have been doing stuff during the flupocalypse!

I see there is no mention of a Saganami/Shadows book, will we ever know what becomes of Norbrandt?

I doubt about Norbrandt. She and her terrorists will be caught and tried off-scene; we may get a comment in a conversation, but I don't expect to see more chapters in taking place in Split.

I also suspect that all HH books that aren't collaborations with Eric Flint (the CS sub-series) will be "mainline" for the next couple of years. So, yes and no: the Saganami/Shadow books will exist, but they will also be the mainline. The fact that David has already renumbered the full series to include the previous SI books supports that idea.

As a consequence of that, I don't expect much to be happening in the Talbott Quadrant, aside from maybe some discussions between the Governor, the military commander (who may not be Kumalo for long), and possibly the CO of Tenth Fleet if they're around (who will likely be Henke for some time). I predict the action will be balanced between all the sectors (Haven, Talbott, Madras, Maya, Mesa-Visigoth and Core).
