The Hegemony did have a "War Against The Computers" and lost.

The Rogue Computers are now secretly running the Hegemony. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:



Or maybe they won, but just barely, and at great cost. That could explain a hyper conservative approach to pretty much any advances in all technologies.

BTW, can anyone tell me when the dead tree version is scheduled for release?


If I remember correctly, not before January 2021(!) - so I wonder, how many snippets we'll get (and how much of the book they'll cover)


:-(

I do like snippets, but I find that with a looong gap between the last snippet and book [dead wood] I sort of lose interest a bit.

The earlier snipeting methodology was - IMHO - better!

Wasn't it Fisher who said that?

And in real life, who is Massengale? That name showed up in the Honorverse several times too.
