At Manticon/Westercon/NASFIC David said it should take three more books or so to complete the Safehold series (which as we all know from the Honorverse, probable means 5-6).

He also mentioned that the next solo project will be Safehold 11.

So the book he just turned in a week or two ago is NOT Safehold 11.

Oath of Swords was the first novel by RFC I ever read :)
Yes I'd like more of that series, but...Safehold needs completed, it's a true epic and much deeper than Honorverse IMHO

seen too many great series left hanging by author's death sigh
Sterling E lanier's "Hiero's Journey" being a huge fave as a youngster that's left without an end due to his death :cry:

We're all getting older, many of us have health problems and would like some answers afore we kick the bucket :p

Oh, I loved this two books also as a teen... It was interestingly popular in 90s Russia. In 2002-2004 some Russian writers even published a "World of Hiero Desteen" book series, with about 29 titles (mostly under English pseudonyms, because at this time our readers were much more interested in Western fiction). It was basically a large fanfiction collection, made more or less coherent and published officially.

P.S. As a personal example of series not finished - "The Lost Regiment" by William R. Forstchen. While author is alive and well, he lost interest in series and left it unfinished for almost 20 years by now.
