Does anyone know if there is ever going to be any further books in the series, I have read all four books twice now and still no sign of any other books, unless you call empire of man and throne of stars, which are just basically the four books rewritten into two. David Weber and John Ringo left the story open for further additions, however to date nothing materialised and the leg book, we few was written in 2005, surely they can see it's time for the next installment? :roll:

Book 5 has been underway for several years now. Ringo, has posted several sample chapters. The main delay was 'Failure to communicate.' Ringo sent a draft to Weber using an old email address and never followed up. If Weber was expecting it he never followed up with Ringo when it didn't show up. So, those of us who would love to see what happened are left high and dry.

If you look at the latest schedule of Weber work plan, it's not mentioned.

IIRC, after the failure to communicate was resolved, Ringo and Weber discovered that they had completely different ideas on what Roger's role would be in book 5.

I stated years ago that I expected him to be stuck in meetings on Earth (big messes to clean up) while the naval officers who were introduced in _We Few_ will have all the fun. At least, that is my opinion on what he should be doing.
